I am not a fan of winter. Yeah, I know that not very many people are. But, I am not just talking about the cold. I’m talking about the sickness. It seems that every winter me, B, and/or the kids come down with something pretty icky. This winter is no different.
After a very long (read: sleepless) night, I decided to take Manly to the doctor. I explained to the doctor that I thought he might have an ear infection. He checked. Nope. I related to him that RSV is making its rounds around my neighborhood. So, he checked Manly’s lungs.
Within a minute he said, “Well, looks like he has RSV.”
“You’re kidding me,” I said, with a dumfounded grin. (I always grin when I’m unsettled.)
“Nope. I’m giving you a prescription for the suction clinic at the hospital.”
Nice. Oh, and on top of that? Strep. Rectal strep.
And here I thought I was just going in for an ear infection. I will admit that I barely kept myself composed while talking to the doctor. RSV is not something I wanted to hear.
So, the point of all this? I am banning winter from my house. Also, I won’t be commenting on very many of your blogs for a little while. Know that I am there and reading. Right now Manly needs me to focus on him.
Would you please pray for my little guy? He really needs it.
