I am sorry this blog has been lacking somewhat lately, although I promise there is a legitimate reason.
My little family has been going through a lot lately in the world of illnesses. Chloe has had a double ear infection, then a respiratory virus for about two weeks now. We have had her on antibiotics and that seemed to take care of the ears, until a week later we found one one of her ears didn't heal completely and we had to give her stronger antibiotics. This has all happened in the last 3 weeks... now it seems the ear is bothering her AGAIN. What is really strange is she will seem fine until Friday, then she will wake up with puffy eyes, runny nose and start to have a fever... I don't know what to do anymore. We have taken her to the doctors 3 times in the past three weeks. :( I am wondering if taking her to daycare is a good thing, that is the only place I think she may be getting sick over and over again?
On top of it all, I got Chloe's cold/virus on the way to Boston. I have been battling against it ever since last Wednesday and it doesn't seem to let up. I have already called in sick 2 times since I have been back to work from the trip. Since I was sick on the plane, I ended up getting terrible ear pain and plugged ears. The pressure is still here even after almost a week. Trust me, I know why babies scream on planes, this hurts!
To make matters any more worse, I have gone to urgent care twice and ended up in the emergency room, all within the past 4 days. I have had crazy heart palpitations and shortness of breath, which they thought could be a blood clot due to my pregnancy, the lengthy flight I just had, and the Sudafed I was taking to try and clear the cold. Thank God that checked out to be all clear, but now I am left with the same problems and nothing I can do about it but to rest, relax and not take any meds. It's hard to just sit through the pain not being able to do anything about it. Especially when I need to take care of my sick little girl at the same time.
James has definitely been super dad of the house these past 3 weeks and is helping out tremendously. Thank you BL! I just feel sucky, sick and useless which is a horrible combination. We are holding on to the fact that we know God is our healer and this is something that will pass (it just seems like forever now).
I guess I am writing all of this just to ask,
Can you all please pray for me/us? We could really use healing and patience!
