Great, Just Perfect

We've been relatively unaffected by the cold and flu season this year except for a brief bout early in November. I had a flu shot and perhaps consequently have remained perfectly healthy in that respect fortunately. I know being sick with the flu while pregnant is like stabbing oneself repeatedly in the eye with a steak knife.

However, SP woke this morning with a horrendous cough. And I thought, "now? -are you serious?"

I'm not used to being concerned about her ever making anyone else in the family sick (we're adults and can handle it better) - just the opposite. It's always a wage against the rest of the world so that SHE doesn't get sick. But I find myself fast-forwarding two days to when she's holding my brand new baby...and coughing all over her.

Ugh. At least I have a couple of days to try to get her better. I feel bad being mainly concerned for the new baby but hey, I've spent nearly 5 years being solely concerned about SP's health. I've seen too many RSV babies and it literally scares me to death!

p.s. I think it's time I picked a new bloggy name for SP. It just doesn't seem right anymore, does it? Ideas? Oh, and I'll need one for the baby too.

2 backward glances:

Good luck with getting her better quickly. That stinks for her and for the circumstances. Best of Luck in all of your endeavors this week. May all go well. I will be waiting for news :).

Hey Buddy, you and DH are more likely to get sick than baby. She is the healthiest she will be and she will be getting a ton of great things from Mommy's milk that will help her immune system.

Praying for you!
