I hope everyone will feel better soon! It sounds really rough, all the viruses. I think they're hitting so bad because the antibiotics are not working anymore, each year there's a new mutation of flu. Here everyone are sick too. I spent a week in bed with a little fever, constant cough and general feeling of being run over by an elephant.
Big hugs and wishing everyone a healthy year

For you. What a bummer. I had a rough couple of months this fall with my son. It really is a bummer when it seems you can't keep up. This fall my 2 yo son broke his arm, a week later it had to be reset because it didn't heal, the next week we had to se the pedi for a chronic cough (turned out to be a sinus infection), 2 weeks later the cast came off, 1 week after that he had the croup and was sick for over 2 weeks, and I ended up really sick. Boy it can be tough! I kept thinking the entire time that having kids was much harder than anyone ever tells you! We averaged 1 doctors appointment a week for almost 2 months. And our insurance is so crappy we are still paying for the arm. But oh well, guess we just get on with it right? Maybe someday you will look back at it and laugh, at least thats what everyone told me! Take care of yourself, and hope you and your kids are feeling better! Use your down time to knit, that always makes me feel better

You really have been a trooper! I can't imagine having to deal with all of that and then hurt my ankle! I hope you all heal soon.

One thing I thought of when I was reading your post is that maybe you should change all the tooth brushes in the house. I had a recurring sore throat last winter. On one of my Dr visits she asked if I had changed my toothbrush recently and when I said no she suggested it strongly. So I did and my sore throat was gone. I am 99% sure I was reinfecting myself every time I brushed my teeth.

Awww I feel for you! it is hard enough caring for everyone else and then you get hurt!
I like Holly's idea of new toothbrush's!
I had the stomach thing so bad the 2nd week of December I had to pull the car over a couple of times and then thought I might have to cancel my trip to see my newborn granddaughter...thankfully I got better in time!
It drives me nuts that people can be so inconsiderate and spread their germs...if someone is sick and HAS to be around people at least give them a heads up, don't hug and kiss and keep your hands washed!
I hope your ankle is getting better

Wow....it's a shame we can't rustle up four suits of armor for you guys! I'm so sorry you've had it so rough! Maybe all the well-wishing here will ward off anymore bad bugs/accidents! Hope you are all in tip-top shape, soon!

Demonica, you hit on one of my biggest pet peeves! People that go out on public or attend functions even though they are sick. Why is it some people call in sick for work but still go out??? Also mothers and fathers that choose to take their children out for social event when they are sick!
Where I come from, when one is sick, one stays away from others out of respect until they are better.

Anyway, I hope you are much better and having a much more relaxing second half of January.

ugh! yes, new toothbrushes, clean sheets, open all the windows for a few minutes to air out the house. Yuck. So sorry to hear about it all. Also, a sprain often hurts more than a break, so take it easy (yeah, right!?)
