My family, see also Apocolypse, four horsemen of

April 15th, 2009

We are sick. Oh, yes, we are sick. Small Boy, Husband and I all have bronchitis and are all taking antibiotics. (Hey, we hit the trifecta!) Boychen, miraculously, was proclaimed bronchially fit but with a red inflamed – “not an infection, yet” – inner ear. The left ear, for the curious. He’s got ear-drops and nose-drops and cough syrup. A part of me is wondering if we shouldn’t just throw him on antibiotics anyway because, really, like he’s going to get out of this without deveoping bronchitis, too? Seriously, you think? Most of me, however, is cautious about using antibiotics, as is our pediatrician Dr. Norwegian (which is one of the many things I really like about him). But really. Seems to me like the poor boy is doomed.

    You never know, Boychen might end up surprising you! I remember when S and B were small– there were so many times when I thought an illness was inevitable and then it miraculously passed them by. (And then there were the times when I was sure everything would be fine…)

    Hope you all are feeling better very soon!

    You could be right Betsy. He’s a surprisingly tough little dude.

    Hehe, this post’s title made me laugh. I’m so sorry you’re all sick; isn’t that how it tends to go in our little families? Coordination. Anyway, I’m just now catching up on blogs after our Easter break, and wanted to say I hope your groove is waiting for you just on the other side of bronchitis. 🙂 (I’m completely impressed that even in a writing slump, you’re managing to put together poetry packages. Completely impressed.)

    Lillian, actually we held out on antibiotics for Boychen. I can’t tell if he’s better or not, though…

    Ugh. I hope everyone is feeling better sooner than later! And I hope you don’t need antibiotics after all!!
