Sick, sick, and...sick!

I don't know why, but Things 1 and 2 and I have been sick almost all month. Thing 1 hasn't been sick for about two weeks thank goodness, but Thing 2 and just can't shake it. I'm not sure if it's from this inversion hanging over the valley, or if their is something in our apartment that's not letting us get better. Our apartment doesn't ventilate very well and with the freezing cold temperatures it's hard to want to open the windows. Any thoughts?

Thing 2 has had the worst of it poor guy. Every time Daddy and I try to go somewhere on a Friday night he seems to come down with a fever. Then last Monday this is what happened.

Our poor little baby broke out in hives! At first we though it was an allergic reaction to some food. This is within 10 minutes of the first bumps appearing on his face. Within 30 minutes he was red everywhere and swollen especially his face, ears, and hands. I felt so bad just watching him put his face down on the couch or floor and rubbing to itch. He didn't have trouble breathing so we took him to an InstaCare and the doctor thought it to be a stomach virus because of problems with diarrhea, fever and one case of vomiting a few days prior. He said that some of the stomach viruses they have seen lately are turning up hives as a reaction. Poor little guy was so uncomfortable! Wish us luck getting better!


  1. Poor baby, and so little you can do!
    How is the new home? Did you transition well?

    1. It's okay. My transition is still happening and there are times that is better than others. The tight quarters will only last a short time, but the sickness has just about driven me insane. I'm struggling, but with help, I'm managing.

  2. :( I hope he is better by now. Even covered in rashes from head to toe he is still the cutest little guy I've ever seen!
