'Tis the Season

to be sick, fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la. I don't know why, but it seems to be that every Christmas season we fall ill. Last year I spent Christmas Eve in the hospital, with iv hooked up to my veins, and this year all my boys are sick. I myself had a dry cough for weeks - and I mean weeks. Just ask my yoga ladies, as relaxation was not as peaceful with me hacking away Wednesday after Wednesday! But somehow I did not fall victim to the sicknesses that have befallen my family. Greg was in to the hospital last week (because booking an appointment with our family doctor is next to impossible) only to be sent home with no answers. However, his symptoms continued, and in fact worsened, so off again he went today. He's thinking it may be pneumonia (which he assures me tequila in Mexico will cure). I'm not sure what this doc decided he has, but I see he's been prescribed some medicine, so apparently they've come up with something this time. I thought for sure he was going to continue drinking Buckleys straight... that can't be good!My mom is certain Braylon has pink eye. I definitely thought he had something plaguing his eye because it was gooping far more than usual. Thankfully he's a relatively good baby, so his being sick doesn't unnerve the rest of us. But now it's a matter of finding time (and a place, as I doubt Greg wants to return to the hospital AGAIN) to take him in between all the family Christmases we have. That, and we're leaving Friday on holiday without him, and as I am already dreading leaving him, I'm going to hate to leave him feeling under the weather. But if we can get him in to see a doctor then hopefully he can get some drops to clear his eye up.

And then there's Isaiah, who has had a cough his entire life, yes, but has been barking left, right and centre the past week or so. Like Braylon, he doesn't seem to be too irritated by it, save for sleeping, but he's definitely not his healthy self. I really hope we all start to feel better around here, myself included (as not even I have beaten this cough)!
