Triple Dose of Bronchitis With Brain Pudding

So my brain is pudding today. Woke the boys up to a normal sort of day…except that it wasn’t.

Backstory: I kept the older 2 home yesterday from school b/c over the weekend they were coughing like crazy…like to the point of choking! And Cash has asthma, so I’m constantly watching that. BUT I thought that maybe they were ok enough to go to school today.

Okay, so back to my normal sort of morning. Wake the kids up to get ready for school…and Crash is having an asthma attack. Oh yeah, he has asthma too. And also Bash has epilepsy. Anyways so I’m giving Crash his nebulizer treatment and trying to get the older 2 out the door…and the nebulizer just isn’t cutting it. I was supposed to sub today, but I canceled and called the children’s hospital hotline to see if they think that I need to take Crash into the ER or just give him some OTC cough syrup for his cough (he’s also obtained this crazy cough over the course of the night). I’m also freaking out a little b/c I can’t get ahold of the DR and I’m not sure what I should do. Finally the nurse @ the children’s hospital tells me to take him into the ER.
So away we go. He’s admitted, chest xray’d and find out that he has bronchitis. He has a steroid to take and an antibotic…oh and he can’t go to school tomorrow either.

Fast forward a few hours to approx. 4pm today. I have DR appointments for the older 2 boys. Guess what they also have? Bronchitis! More antibiotics. And no school tomorrow either.

At this point I’ve been to 2 pharmacies, the hospital and the DR office. Right now my kitchen counter looks like I’ve ripped off a pharmacy!!

And guess what? I’ve gotta wake up @ 4am and give Crash his meds. I’m REALLY becoming exhausted with all of the sickness that I’m having to tend to since August. It’s really wearing me down. Sigh.

Its a Gloomy Sort of Thursday

I’m back after an interesting conference at the capitol. I brought the regular stuff: clothes, swimming suit, laptop, a book. What I brought back home: all the stuff I brought (thank God!), a sweet leather jacket that I picked up @ Goodwill for $20 and a cold.

This cold is stupid and I’m pretty much miserable. I desperatly need to clean since the DirecTV person is supposed to come tomorow and he might need to get in the front door. I don’t feel like it. I also need to go to parent teacher conferences in a few hours. I also don’t feel like doing this. Can I just be blah all day?

Plus it’s one of those gloomy fall days where the wind is blowing and it’s cold and the sky is gray. Kinda a day for watching bad tv, loads of stupid videos on YouTube, writting a letter or reading. Not being around people or cleaning.

But I’m going to have to do something. Maybe it will make me feel better?? Doubt it.
