I know it seems like most of my posts lately are about illness, but that is our reality right now. Eric's sickness that I mentioned in the previous post turned out to be the flu. And, despite our best efforts at prevention, the baby seems to have caught it, too. (sigh) I'm taking him to the doctor this morning. I seem to be the only one who has not been sick, and I pray that it remains that way. My sick baby needs me.
Well, I now officially have the flu, too! Eric was able to take Tamiflu, which greatly shortened the length and reduced the severity of his illness. But, Tamiflu is not for babies under the age of 1 and nobody seems to know if it is safe for breastfeeding moms (I called my general practitioner and my OB and neither knew if it is safe!), so Gustin and I are struggling along as the illness takes its natural course. Hopefully, I'll be back blogging again soon with a houseful of healthy people! The pediatrician said that Gustin has crammed two years worth of illness into one month. I think we have had more than our fair share!
