We are sick in the Boro!

We have been dealing with some yucky stuff at the Phillips household. I started getting a sore throat on Friday morning. We still decided to go to Curt's Mom's house on Friday afternoon. After we got to her house, Mason started to feel bad on Saturday and he had a pretty bad night Saturday night as well. We came home Sunday morning, and then Curt started feeling bad. So we have all had a touch of this yucky virus. The worst part is that Mason cannot tell us how he feels. He has just been pitching these whinny fits. I guess that is his way of telling us that he does not feel great at all. He also has hardly slept since Saturday night. He has been up at least 3 times and at most 7 times each night since then. I feel so bad for him.

So yesterday, I kept Mason home and we snuggled and went to the doctor. First an appointment for Mason, the doc said he has an ear infection and a viral upper respiratory infection. What really sucks is that they pulled all of the cough and cold medicine for kids under two. We already had stocked up, but I threw it all away. I guess they pulled it from the shelves for a reason and I could not live with myself if something happened to my little BUG because of my error. Also, I spoke to the doc about that and he said that it really does them no good anyways. So he is on an antibiotic for the ear and that is about it. We are pretty much going to tough it out. Did I mention that this is his 4th ear infection and he is only 12 months old? I feel like I am doing something wrong. I guess some kids are just prone to ear infections, I know I was!

Then I had a doctor appointment that took FOREVER!!!! I am going to switch doctors before the next time I have to go. I am so TIRED of waiting as long as I have to wait. I am always on time and we always pay our bills before they are due and still I have to wait. My appointment was at 2:30 and I did not get home until 5pm. That is utterly ridiculous! I just really hate to change because I like my doctor, but not enough to wait that long!


  1. So sorry Leslee! I hope you guys can get some rest and recouperate. Being sick is just terrible!

  2. Thank you for your post on our blog! I remember learning about the BRAT diet in nursing school, but I had forgotten about it. Hopefully that flu doesn't hit Boston again, but if it does, I'll have to try it. Hope you all are feeling better!

  3. Shame! I'm so sorry for your little one! Here in England we don't use cold medicine on very small children either, but you can sit in a room full of steam (like in the bathroom with the shower on) and that helps to de-congest them.
    I hope you all start feeling better soon.

  4. I'm so happy you tried the soup!! Did you add water or milk? I've been adding milk lately and it's creamier. Mmm.. :) You're a brave woman!
