Under the Weather

Have you missed me? I’ve seriously missed you all! On the 18th Anne came down with a fever that lasted for 5 straight days and she lost 3 lbs in those 5 days. Now 3 lbs may not seem like a lot to most people but when you consider that most toddlers average weight gain over a year is between 3 and 4 lbs then that number is a little more frightening. As soon as her temperature broke, mine kicked it in to high gear. It turns out Anne had Strep B (I didn’t even know there was more than one kind of strep until last week!).

I have now been sick for a week and yesterday I finally dragged my butt to the doctor to get a lovely diagnosis of bronchitis mixed in with a severe asthma attack for which I am now on antibiotics and steroids. I am hoping to be on the mend by the end of this week, and I’m so sorry that I have up and disappeared.

You have until tomorrow evening to enter your finish for January’s A Lovely Year of Finishes Party and the February goal setting party will start on Friday so start thinking about what you want to work on next month. I have one big deadline I will be working on in February and I will share that with you on Friday.

Have a great day! I will be spending my day convalescing.

    I hope you are better soon. A friend of mine has strep and the flu. She also has asthma. It`s been a long haul but she is finally getting better. Your health is more important than a blog. Your readers will still be here when you are feeling better. I am glad your daughter is well.
