I am so frustrated with constant sickness in my house.
Will and his Daddy seem to be on a "top each other" in sickness contest. They are tied for first place right now and I seem to be on the losing end.
In the past six weeks, M has had two colds (one I think was bronchitis but trying to get him to a doctor is next to impossible) and a really bad stomach flu. Will has had his usual perma-sinus infection, two ear infections, bronchitis (seems same as what M had, but we actually took him to the doctor), and the stomach flu. I worked in hospitals before I had Will and the first two years, I got sick will all sorts of nasties. It was rough. The long-term bonus of that, however, is that I have developed a really good immunity that protects me from getting most of these ailments. I am very grateful for this, because I honestly don't know what we'd do if I got sick, too.
So, it seems as if one of them gets better, the other one gets sick, lather-rinse-repeat. The good news is that Will seems to be sleeping better lately. We had a rough time with the 18-month sleep regression, which I think was exacerbated by all of the sickness. I know I don't sleep well when I am not feeling well, so it was only to be expected. Now, fingers crossed, he is back to sleeping through the night, and I am hoping that trend continues for awhile.
