Finally. We all seem to be returning to good health. As you know I stayed home Monday with the kids while Stella and Jack (mostly Stella) recovered from their bought of bronchiolitis. By the end of the day Jack was fine and Stella had actually been fever-free for a few hours. I order to be sure of things I stayed home with them all again on Tuesday. Plus, we had to follow the 24 hour fever-free rule with Stella for school.
Tuesday went well as she slept again most of the day and ate slightly better than she had been. The boys were wired, too much time at home. T make things more interesting, out Internet went down so we were without Netflix or Hulu. Regular TV? Crazy thought I know, but true. But we survived.
I was quite productive those two days though, plowing my way through countless loads of laundry and dishes. Of course I stripped all of the sheets and tried to disinfect as much as I could in an effort to be sure the sickness was gone.
Wednesday we all returned to our usual routine, a week after the sickness began. It was nice to have things back to normal. Stella is still working on returning to sleeping through the night. She's gotten so used to waking up coughing or with fever that she hasn't been sleeping well. Luckily though it seems to be coming back to her and I hope that we will once again be getting full nights of sleep here soon. Her demeanor is also coming back as she gets to feeling better. The smiles, the laughs, the eating. I've missed her smiles.
So, after a crazy week of sickness we are becoming human again. It really threw us all for a loop too. What a rough week. Thankfully though we have tomorrow and then a week-long vacation with which to recuperate. Ahhhh, I'm already having pleasant thoughts about turkey and pie. Yum!
All is well, healthy again, in Drosche Land.
