Oh god! I am with you. From October to January I had an ear or ear infections that would not go away. Then, then! I’ve got two little boys, one and three, and those rotten little bastards bring home all sorts of diseases/poxes/plagues from daycare and the whole family just trades that crap back and forth. (Nobody told me about that aspect of child-rearing! I feel lied to!) My wife and I got flu shots, still got the flu. For the past few weeks the family has been waging war against pink eye.
Last week Monday, three of the four of us stayed home sick. My youngest got to go to daycare, likely because he was already on antibiotics at the time. Doctor’s appointments for the rest of us. Final tally: youngest - pink eye, dual ear infections, oldest - flu, pneumonia, darling wife (my sun and stars) - sinus infection, flu, me - pink eye, dual ear infections. By the end of the day my entire family was on antibiotics. (Strike that. The dog was ok.) Then after that my oldest got pink eye, and now I’m rocking the flu and some sweet springtime allergies. As of this writing my darling wife (sun, stars, etc) is home with the youngest because he’s got teeth coming in and has had a pretty serious fever.
Mrs. Lowdown (D.W., S&S) and I are losing our minds. It never ends! Bickering hit a high point a few days ago, but I think now we’re resigned to just fighting it out together in the trenches. This past Saturday I cleaned the whole house top to bottom, bleached the toys and everything. Hopefully it helps. I have no idea what else to do…
It’s not just us, either. People have been dropping like flies here at work. Good luck and I hope you get better!
