Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd


Thoughtfully penned on August 25th, 2009 and generally concerning E, Grandparents, Plagues and Pestilence

It has been an interesting few days around here.

All last week Little had a kind of random cough. She would have coughing “fits” where she would cough a lot for a few minutes and then would go hours without coughing again. It was a bit strange, but I didn’t really think much of it; I thought it was just allergies or a cold coming on or something. She didn’t show any other symptoms until this weekend when she started running a low-grade fever. Her fever has gotten up to 101.5, but she still doesn’t really have any symptoms other than the cough and fever. She is a little lethargic and whiney, but for the most part she’s just Little.

And speaking of this weekend…my parents (Bebe and Grandad) came to visit. It was Little’s “birthday” weekend (a few weeks past her actual birthday, but more on the birthday in another post) and she had a big day planned to spend with Bebe and Grandad on Friday. Friday morning came, and when my dad woke up his leg was bright red and swollen up really big. Instead of our intended outing he started his day in the minor med clinic getting an antibiotic shot and oral meds for the infection. Over the next couple of days the leg didn’t get any better, and Dad ended up in the hospital on Sunday for IV antibiotics and observation. Fortunately, now his leg seems to be doing better. Hopefully, he’ll be able to head home in the next day or so.

I’ve also been trying to fight the cough thing that Little has going on, but now I seem to have developed an icky sinus-y thing. I’m all congested and coughing and headache-y and such.

We did have a good day on Friday for Little’s big day (minus Grandad); I’ll try to post more on that later. But overall, this weekend and early part of the week certainly hasn’t turned out quite like I thought it would.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. Sorry y’all have the crud. It definitely kicks some butt. It took almost 2 weeks for me and Peanut to get over it and Peanut’s nose still runs off and on.

    Glad your dad is better, but very sorry it “ruined” the fun weekend y’all had planned!

    Love y’all.

  2. I hate it for you guys. I hope you all get to feeling better soon and this doesn’t end up like the holidays last year!!! Rascal misses little and asks if she can play everyday. See he may pester the snot out of her but deep down he knows they are friends through it all :)…oh and as a side note, I have a new phone so I can see who is calling now!! yeah!!

  3. Hoping your week continues on a smoother note. :-)
