It’s going around

Seems like all of the kids I know have had viruses and/or ear infections this month, and the moms are getting bronchitis.

I took my kids to the doctor right away last week for their diagnoses (yup, viruses AND ear infections).  When my cough didn’t go away after two weeks, I finally went too.  And what do I have?  Bronchitis.

But guess what else I found out?   My exercise program has been wildly successful … I’ve lost 15 pounds since February. 

15 pounds.

It was totally worth going to the doctor this morning.

  2. Yep…we have been fighting this too!

    Have you tried putting Vicks Vapor Rub on everyone’s feet before they go to bed? It works like a charm for us. No one wakes up coughing…

    well done on the weight loss, and commisery (is that a word?) on the bronchitis! we just got rid of it. apparently it went to your house. if you could just send the weight loss over to mine, that’d be awesome.
