The world was just about to start back up after coming to a screeching halt due to COUGHY GOOEY FEVER BUG! We were this close! There was light at the end of the tunnel! And then? Oh, Then??
I caught it.
I candt beethe thoo my nose. I’m so ache-y that even my hair hurts.
I finally took Ezra to the doctor a couple of days ago because his fever just wasn’t going away, and they were kind enough to ‘fit me in’ at 3:45 that afternoon. After what seemed like an eternity of walking back and forth in a stuffy waiting room with a crying toddler, the doctor was able to see me. It was 5:20. They had shut off all the lights in the waiting room and tucked me away in an exam room in the back of the building so that my pediatrician could breeze through and tell me to just “keep my eye on it”. Um… what do you think I’ve been doing these past few days? It’s hard not to ‘keep an eye’ on the child that’s been clinging to my neck like a baby orangutang for the past week.
Ezra started to feel much much better the next day. (Was that yesterday? I’m in a time haze. Is it Monday? Friday? January?) He’s back to his old self now- full of energy! Boundless energy! He’s up! Just in time for me to be down. Laid flat. On that oh-so-familiar couch of mine.
Lucky for me my fabulous sister-in-law is in town with her equally fabulous hubby to help me care for my stir-crazy kiddo and to help me feel like a somewhat social human being once again. They are like superheroes. Their super powers?

Thanks for all your encouragement and well wishes this past week. Even though I am the one who is sick now, I am feeling much better mentally than I was the past few days.
Happy Love Day to you all!!
