  • M word is mastitis. I have 4: 8, 5, twins will be 3 6/1. The twins them selves make a mess of 4 and the older 2 are no help!!! It's hell when you're too sick to care for your lil ones! Mine see it as a time to take advantage(I'm a single mom) and run amok!!! We have a good relationship and they know when to back off but when I'm sick that's whn they really push my buttons! I think athma season is worse this year. I made it last year without a single attack, this year I've had 10 and need the pump more! I am soo sorry your son is suffering(I was in an oxygen tent when I was 2.5 due to asthma)!!!! Try to keep from going into overload! Your sick, your son's sick, and you're worried about the baby getting sick, is causing stress, the more stressed you get while being sick the harder it is to recover! Get help if you can!!! Please keep us posted about each of your recoveries!? My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Get some rest

  • BIG HUGS!

    Let's see, I work from home. I have a 4 year old who just got over his 3rd and 4th ear infection and a second respiratory infection (all within the past 1.5 mos) Meanwhile, I'm 3 weeks away from having a new baby and for the last month and a half, I have been vomitting roughly 10 times a day and have had crazy runs. The vomitting scares the poop outta my son. I've also been in the hospital about 5 times due to high white blood cell count and severe dehydration. I can't eat anything at all without puking, nor can I smell anything. And now, every 2 seconds my lil guy asks if i'm gonna "yak" again. LOL. Doesn't sound NEARLY as bad as what you are going thru. But I am thoroughly exhausted and can't really move without everything coming out both ends. Makes it real hard to enjoy time with ANYONE in my house, let alone do my business! LOL

  • Last March I had walking pneumonia and felt like I was going to die. I had a two moth old, a 20 month old, and an eight year old. My 20 month old had two ear infections also. My husband was always working. It really was one of the worst months of my life. My neighbors garage was burned down by an arsonist, and our other neighbors car was torched. I was so scared and sick.
    But I got through it and so will you.
    Big hugs.
