After having Mia home sick first, now Yodabug has been home for 2 weeks with a chest infection & severe asthma, my mind is boggling at how much snot a 10 yr old boy creates! He's gone thru 6 boxes of tissues since Monday. So for the last few weeks, all you can smell all through the house is Eucalyptus/Peppermint Oil and Vicks. He's been on antibiotics, ventolin as well as steroids and Singulair. This started out as a simple cold 2 1/2 weeks ago. So, if you have a cold & develop a croup type cough, get your arse to the Dr straight away.

Being a sharing soul, he's given the creeping crud to me as well. I feel like absolute crap. I feel so bad I don't even want to look at the computer screen. I am on antibiotics as well, and the Dr upped my pain relief if I want to take more as my joints are hot & excruciatingly painful, the Dr thinks it might just be transient with the flu thing & once I get over the worst, I'll be back in remission.

So, I'll be back when I feel human again.

feelin' - sick & whiney
hearin' - me coughing up a lung!

EVERYone is having this awful illness. poor little kids. If I was running The Ministry Of Good Cheer, I would be distributing those white face masks to everybody. So sick of strangers coughing allover me without covering their mouth with a proper handkerchief - that's how these viruses are spread. bastards! Please all be well soon, much love

Thanks pinkme :-)

Thanks muchly Brownie, this one was horrible and at one stage RCK was all for dragging me to the hospital, but I'm much better now.

I totally agree with you. I actually told someone off at the shop yesterday for not even putting their hand over their mouth. Geeeeez. I'm seriously considering moving to the outback to get away from humans.
