5 for 5...

Well, we're dropping like flies around here. I think it started with Dan. About 2-3 weeks ago, he became really hoarse and had a sore throat. It developed into a pretty good cough. He's been on the mend except for the lingering cough. Then, Nathan was next. He never complained much (NOT like his character at all) but he hacked and hacked for awhile...and still is. Over the last week, the girls have come down with it. Amelia first, now Olivia. They were puny enough to warrant a trip to the doctor. Dan took all three of them on Friday. Guess what? They all 3 have bronchitis in various stages. So, off to the pharmacy for drugs. Dan has an antibiotic too and so probably in the next week, they'll all be feeling better.
Unfortunately, the story does not end there. I finally can no longer ignore the strange feeling in my throat or the achiness in my shoulders and neck. Last night, sometime around 2 or 3 am, that strange feeling became sore! I'm achy all over and my head is pounding. Nice.

I'm not sure what this will mean for surgery on the 4th. I guess I'll call the surgeons office tomorrow and let them know. Incidentally, I had all my pre-op workup done on Friday..everything was good. The chest xray too. Let's hope it stays that way.

Well, I need to check the poppy seed muffins that are in the oven and I can hear that the coffee maker is just about done. It's early, not quite seven. Only Olivia and I are up. I will cherish this time.

Have a Blessed Sunday!!
