Sick With Great Company

Well, I thought that I was going to escape the sickness that Cameron and DH had, but I didn't escape the nasty cold and have had it since last Friday. Do I feel any better at all? Nope, I have been on Z-Pak since Monday and a nasal spray and don't feel any better at all. My sinus pressure is so bad that no pain reliever is helping. I have tried Advil, Extra Strength Tylenol, Excedrin and nothing is even touching the pain. I have been on a steady diet of soups and noodles because my mouth and teeth hurt so bad that I can't even chew anything. This has to be the worst sinus infection that I have ever had. The pain is just awful and I even think that my face is a bit swollen. It is just all around not a good sinus infection AT ALL. I haven't had any kids in the house this weekend except for my little sweetheart. He has been keeping me company and giving me plenty of smiles to help make me feel better. He is such a sweetheart and I love him. I brought over his blankie to me yesterday along with his Blue's Clues dog and his lion and handed it over. As soon as I took it, he looked at me and said "Feel Better Mommy" It was just the cutest thing ever. So, even though I am sick, not feeling good at all, I still have this most precious boy that seems to make things all better just by being his sweet self. Gosh, I thank my Lord everyday for blessing me with my little miracle. He is indeed the best gift ever!!

Oh wow...You are sick..have you thought maybe you need a different antibiotic? Maybe it is viral..that is what my DR always seems to say lately. I am sorry you are feeling so bad.
Your sweet boy is the best medicine huh?
I hope you feel better today.

I feel your pain. No, really, I DO feel your pain! Whoopie Pies for breakfast would make things worse, Lisa. Sugar will for me.

Mine get like that and will hurt so I'm woozie and sick to my stomach. If it gets too bad like that an Imitrex will help. My face get's puffy when my sinuses are inflammed, too.

Do you irrigate your sinuses? Of course, if they are clogged you can't. But if mine are inflammed and hurting like crazy it REALLY helps and soothes to irrigate them.

I'm so sorry you are feeling so awful, but I'm glad you have someone sweet to cheer you!

Sorry that you are not feeling well. It is so hard when mom is not well. Get better soon. But in the mean time, enjoy your little helper. What a sweetie Cameron is.

So sorry your still sick:(
I can't stand bad sinus infections!
I really hope you get to feeling better soon..

Thats SO SWEET what your little boy did & said.. Last year I had one of the worst sinus infections that I can remember.. My dad had just pasted away n I was sleep deprived & irritated with dh.. Anyway while I was laying down.. My little cousin(I'm actully old enough to be her aunt) she walks in and lays her sweet little head & hands on my head and just stays like that for a while...then says.. "you feel better now"..

I did feel much better.. even though I was so sick & tired I didn't know what to do with myself:)

Surprise! Finally, I got the kick in the butt that I needed to get back to blogging. :)

Sorry to hear that you are so sick and feel as bad as you do. I can't imagine the aches and pains. Just know that I have thought about you and Shawn and Cameron everyday that I did not blog. We'll certainly be praying for you and love you all so very much. :)

What an awesome piece of heaven that you have to hold and care for each and every day. God's light certainly shines brightly through Cameron. :)

Love and hugs,
