Week before last Miller had a cold. He stayed home from school because he was sick…until about 10 a.m. Then he was fine!
Allen and I weren’t too surprised when a few days later we started to get that feeling. You know the one!
By Tuesday afternoon, I had officially called friends and asked them to take the boys home from school for me. I stayed home Wednesday and Thursday and thought that by Friday I was beginning to feel a little better.
That was before Friday night where I coughed so hard that couldn’t catch my breath. I thought, “Well I guess I should have gone to see the Doctor after all.” I decided that no matter what I was going to the Doctor on Monday.
Monday rolled around and though I felt slightly better I still had a nasty cough and called the office. My doctor was away, but they put me with another doctor. That doctor was apparently too busy because she didn’t even give me an exam and just told me to take the two over the counter meds I had already been taking.
So here we are on Wednesday and each day I feel a little better, but still have a cough and congestion. Oh well. It is true your body will heal itself. If you’re 6 it takes about a day, if you’re my age it takes about 2 weeks. Not that I’m bitter.
So Miller comes home yesterday with a new cold. Yep, I've been sick for so long that he has gone and gotten another cold before Allen and I have finished with the last one he gave us! Here’s to being over 40!
