A bit like clockwork, we started our first official week on cold and flu season lock down with colds. Both Kellen and Owen have hacking coughs and draining noses. Kellen’s had almost no effect, just required some extra tissues and hand washing. Owen’s been hit a little harder, but (knock on wood) he’s seems to be weathering it pretty well – I’ve upped his oxygen a little, stopped his oxygen breaks and am giving him a few nebs a day, so nothing major in the world of Owen. Thursday and Friday seemed to be the peak days, so hopefully he’s on his way to better soon.
I was also sick on Friday and, still a little, on Saturday but it seemed different than what the boys have. I was achy, sore throat and headache. With Owen and I both needing some extra rest that day, I didn’t post but I have some really amazing people who I want to write about for our Heroes of the Month, so you’ll see that post on Wednesday.
Kellen had extra special day with Grandpa Corky on Saturday. He helped him supervise some Bobcat work at Grandpa’s house. They also managed to polish off nearly a whole bag of Halloween Oreos between the two of them. If you ever wondered if there was such thing as a sugar drunk, there is. We also learned that, like the other type of drunk, sugar drunks result in some crabby hangovers the next morning.
Fortunately, we got our normal child back before noon or that would have been a long afternoon for this mom who already had to watch her football team blow a big lead while Kyle was at the Vikings game… that game also didn’t go my way.
