This photo of Jordan says it all. Yesterday she started wheezing. Alexis started running a fever, and Brandon’s nose began running. I had been feeling achy for several days, At three in the morning I could hear Jordan struggling to breathe on the baby monitor I keep in her room.
I had to go in and wake her up to give her a breathing treatment. Shortly after she woke up, Brandon did too. I never did get to go back to sleep. We went to the doctor’s office this morning, which I had been trying to avoid at all costs because everyone knows it is like writing an active child a personal invitation to misbehave. Thankfully they actually behaved because they were too sick to create much chaos.
The nurse swabbed the children’s noses for the flu virus, and Alexis’ test came back positive, but Jordan’s was negative. The doctor put all three kids on Tamiflu. Our insurance did not cover Brandon’s prescription (which REALLY ticked me off). We finally got home and everyone is sick and extremely cranky. At least I now know why I have been feeling so achy and tired lately. I am not able to go to the doctor’s office for myself because they do not have appointments until Monday. I' will just deal with it. Moms are made out of tough stuff.
Signing off and hoping everyone reading this is well!
