Sickly

25 Jan

We’ve had a bumpy week around here. Lakyn and I both are struggling to fight off whatever germs and bacteria has snuggled into our bodies to make a home for themselves. Somehow, Brandon has gotten by without so much as a sneeze. Lucky.

Turns out Lakyn has a sinus infection and could have possibly had a small ear infection. We ended up having to cancel her birthday party that was scheduled for this past Sunday. It was a hard decision, but the right one to make. We’ve rescheduled her birthday party for Feb. 18, and we hope that our friends and family will be able to make it to help celebrate this little’s sweetie’s b-day!

I have no idea what I have. A lot of congestion, a junky cough, headaches, I’m extremely tired, and between Lakyn and I we go through a box of kleenex in about two days. The fatigue could be the pregnancy, though. It’s really a bummer to get sick while pregnant, due to the fact that you already feel awful and then your medication options are very limited. I’m hoping this yucky stuff passes soon. I’d really like to be able to sleep again, to breathe again, and to be able to get a sentence out without hacking up my left lung. Sorry for the visual.

Here’s to resting, eating more soup, and slathering our chapped sore noses with lotion.

    Oh I am so sorry. It is HORRIBLE to be sick and pregnant (and take care of a sick kid). Being a mom is a hard job…no sick days. Hope you get better quickly! Hang in there sweet momma!
