Sickly Mucus Filled Lady
So here we are on day three of a mucus nightmare and we are getting it under control. Elizabeth can breath through her nose, but the damage has been done. Her sense of taste comes and goes and her right side sinuses are still sensitive. However, based on where we were two days ago, times are good.
Oh, yes, looking back to Thursday and the ear pain and constant pain of blowing her nose have passed. Her nose may still be full of junk, but not like the train of mucus it once was.
We decided to take it easy for a few days and use some old time methods of relaxation. Just watching some television and eating out. For now, Elizabeth is getting through the crud as both Andrew and I have.
Soon, we may get a week since Christmas where one of us isn’t throwing up, stuck in bed with a fever or blowing our noses. It appears this happens each year about December and sticks around until Spring. Could it be the school year? Yes! Can we do anything about it at this point? No. But, this two may have a solution.
Locking up a bunch of children all together every year through the winter, in a mucus filled school, is certainly a recipe for getting the whole country sick every year. And, who am I to suggest that we can’t change this awful practice of bad hygiene institutional stupidity. Does anyone really think this is a good idea? If you do think it is a good idea, is it because you have to work? or is it because, placing all of the 5 year olds in the county in the same buildings sounds like a good way to keep them all less sick for three months of hell. Oh, well, I am getting down off my box and moving on. Hoping and knowing that this season of joy shall soon pass.
