Wednesday Update

We are once again sick in the Neatokimmo household. I've had problems since day 4 in China, getting sick over and over. I didn't want to press my luck, but I did mention to a coworker that I felt great and that I hadn't been sick for 2 weeks. Why oh why????

I now have an ear infection and pink eye. Pretty huh? I didn't go to work this morning because I couldn't open my left eye. The upper lid had swollen over the bottom one. I sort of looked like I had been in a fight and lost lol Now the swelling is down a lot and my whole eye is blood red. I am on 14 days of amoxicillian for the ear. I am undecided if I will get the drops for my eye. It reduces the irritation by 1.5 days and it stopped itching this afternoon. I've used two entire saline bottles flushing it out and it has really helped. If you haven't eaten recently google baterical conjunctivitis, there are some super gross pictures out there.

This brings me to the moral of my post (yay a moral! not had one of those in a long time!)

Don't pick up other kids at daycare no matter how much they whine. They are snot infested little germs carriers. Kick them to the side (I'm only partially kidding, you should see my eye and feel my ear). Only pick up your child! And maybe the other cute Chinese one named Tia!

Natalie's nose is running like a faucet. She screams if she sees a tissue. Like a moron I kept her home with me today, I got zero rest. She pitched several good fits today, one lasted for 10 minutes. What do you do when your child pitches a holy fit? Video tape it of course. She didn't want to be held, put down, put in her crib. She wasn't wet or stinky. She wasn't hungry or thirsty. She doesn't have new teeth coming in. So you tell me why she was so cranky? Sheez! I am keeping that lovely little video to show her prom date :)

Ok I think that is it for now! I am waiting for the magical hour of 10pm so I can take another pill and go to bed. Woohoooo!!
