Sick Week

So earlier this week I mentioned that Amira was having trouble sleeping. We thought this was just from teething, but then her little eyes became red and puffy, and she was sent home from school. I brought her to the doctor, though I thought her red eyes were just from her stuffy nose. Which they were, but all of this congestion caused a double ear infection!
She got her first prescription of amoxicillin, which I was very nervous about giving her since I am allergic. I picked up some benedryl to be ready just in case. But she is not allergic as it turns out & is feeling much better.
I on the other hand have had a light cold drag on and on and on. And for the third or fourth evening I am having coughing fits on top of a sore throat. Very unpleasant.
But if Amira can still run around and have fun with two ear infections, I can surely push on. Though I did stay home from work yesterday (but infecting my co-workers with something potentially contagious is unacceptable.) I finished up a few baby blankets. And as you can see, I am burying Adrian with yarn. Poor Adrian, he is stuck taking care of the both of us right now! Maybe tomorrow I will wake up and be like new and pack up his lunch for once:)


  1. hope you are getting better… sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

    usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup ( ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

    i hope it works on you as well.

  2. Thanks Jane for the advice. I have just been drinking lots of peppermint tea with loads of honey:)
