House of Germs!


We can't seen to get rid of the crud! For almost 5 months now, we've been passing this little sucker back and forth amongst ourselves. Some of us have ended up with the flu, some with an ear infection and some of us with strep. Amelia started getting sick on Christmas Eve. As a matter of fact, we didn't go to mass as a family on Christmas. Dan stayed home with Amelia and I took the other kids. By Christmas Day, she was feeling better.....but the cough started. While Olivia is still dealing with a lingering ear infection, Amelia now has bronchitis. To top it all off, I have a cold! You know the kind....you can't breathe, you can't taste or smell....the kind that makes you use several boxes of Kleenex in one day....and the kind that sends your husband back to the drugstore for more cough drops because you've gone through a whole bag in 3 days!

I've read where Saint Cornelius and Saint Polycarp are good for earaches. Does anyone know of a Patron Saint for clogged sinuses?

I'll send the stomach bugs over there and you can send the cold and earaches over here:)

It does seem endless, doesn't it?
