J2 just ‘shushed’ me!

It’s 1:20am, he gets out of bed, comes into our room and snuggles up with me. I notice that his diaper is a bit full so, better safe than sorry, I take him to change it before putting him back into bed. 

He fell asleep as soon as I put him on the change mat, but woke up again when that cold wipe went to work!

I carried him back to his room, put him in bed, pulled up his duvet, kissed him on the cheek, whispered goodnight and he put his hand on my head, pushed me away and said,

“Shhhhhh”

Little toot. 

Until next time,

Someone get me a hazmat suit!

Josh was sick before we went to PAX, but he was on the mend and we hoped, foolishly, that he would continue to get better. A busy weekend, coupled with late, restless nights, didn’t give his body many chances to heal.

He eventually felt so bad that he left work early on Friday and went to see a doctor, thinking it was a mild chest infection, only to be diagnosed with acute sinusitis and bronchitis!

Josh: Acute sinusitis & bronchitis

J3 decided that he wanted to be just like Daddy and developed a mild fever on Thursday evening, which got up to 101.7 on Friday. His eyes were red, inflamed and ‘gunky’, and he had five poopy nappies! Not just a little poop either, these were all blowouts.

J3: Fever, conjunctivitis & diarrhea

Today J2 joined the party, on the way home from Kroger he made a squelchy noise in his car seat, I looked in the rear view mirror and when I asked him if he was okay his eyes rolled back into his head and that’s when I noticed the vomit. He heaved again, his eyes snapped back, he said, “eww”, and then laughed.

I quickly pulled over, parked in a random car park and cleaned the boy up as best as I could. Fortunately I’d remembered to pick up the change bag so I had wipes, and diaper sacks and, most importantly, a change of clothes for him.

I called Josh on the way home to have him prepare the J’s bedroom so we could put J2 down for a nap as soon as we got in, Josh sounded awful and in the background I could hear J3 crying. It was at that point that I started to feel nauseous.

J2: Vomiting, fever & headache

Now, dear friends, don’t you start to worry about me, I’m not sick. Yet. Just feeling mumtired, so, once the Super Bowl’s over everyone is going to bed!

Me: Tired

Until next time,
