In the mean time, we have had friends from out of town over (sorry Meems!), went to Build a Bear in the Mall, Chuck E . Cheese, Olgas Kitchen, and many many Midwest Sliders games, and oh yeah, I donated blood for the first time. I hope they check blood for pertussis. (?!) I donated over two weeks ago, so I am hoping that I didn't unknowingly pass along an illness to someone who was already ill. Good grief. The guilt would kill me.
School is starting soon. We are going to visit a dear friend (who I may or may not have infected with pertussis) this weekend, and are looking forward to the Heritage Festival one of Ricky's all time favorite ways to spend money. We missed it last year because we were in Disney World. He is still a little bitter about that. He is a weird weird kid! I'll have to post about his birthday when I am not coughing all over the place....
I guess it could be worse, but looking at the odds of so many of us getting pertussis in the first place, I think I am going to start playing the lotto. My luck has got to change in my favor one of these days!
God is good. All the time.
