Bronchitis, Sinusitis, and lingering cold's....boooo!

I'm feeling kind of bad right now, because all this junk started with me about 2 weeks ago. I somehow managed to not only infect my entire family with it, but of course, Rauly's little lungs aren't nearly as strong as mine and she got far sicker than any of us. Last night, Chad was feeling gosh-awful, so he drugged himself and crashed on the couch. Of course, that's when Rauly decided to take a turn for the worse. She woke up around 1am, attempting to wheeze, but unable to even do that...I woke up to her trying to breathe in the hallway - she was so scared and couldn't even cry. I immediately took her in to the bathroom and calmed her down - I figured the more she tried to cry, the harder it would be for her to breathe. Long story short, she quit crying, I gave her otc meds (can you tell I used to do pharmaceutical inventories? lol!)...and she slept on my chest the rest of the night...which means I got NO sleep!

The doc said her left lung was filled with fluid, she has bronchitis and sinusitis. Bless her heart! Chad just told me he thinks he has an ear infection and he's feeling miserable. Shep is also on antibiotics for sinusitis that is lingering. Sheesh luiz...when it rains it pours! Thx in advance for your prayers...we'd like to be back to normal as soon as possible. :)

We've all had that in our house too! The only person that went to the doctor was Clara because she's so small and sounded the worst. The rest of us took the brunt of it and had it for nearly 2 weeks! Ugh! Sorry you all feel awful! Just know that it will get better....eventually! :)

So sorry you are all so sick..I will lift you all up. I too have been extremely sick since Dec 19. It started with the upper respitory infection-I had a temp on Christmas night..it finally started to get better and then on Jan 3, I came down with a food borne infection that honestly almost wiped me out..my husband took me to the doctor on Monday, Jan 5..I had a temp of 102..my pulse rate was 128 and I wished I were dead. He gave me some powerful broad spectrum anti-b's and after 2 rounds I think I am going to live..I was out sick for 5 days..but I do feel so bad about you guys being so sick..it is so hard when the babies get sick. My prayers are with you all.

Good grief! Hope y'all get over the sickies soon! We're meeting friends at Downtown Disney tomorrow, and poor Wes thinks he's going to get to see "Rauly'n'Shep."
