Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope your year is off to a really great start!

Unfortunately, we've been off to a bit of a rough start around here. OZL somehow got a little cough (is there anything more heart wrenching than a baby coughing miserably?) Then he got a fever while he was fighting off the cough (oh yeah, a feverish coughing baby is a whole lot more heart wrenching). So the first two days of the new year have found us with one sad, sick baby.

I've also hit that familiar wall of fatigue - where it seems like it takes an immense effort to do anything. Which, of course, makes caring for a sad, sick baby slightly more difficult. And for some reason my toes have also chosen this time to get so swollen and painful that it hurts to walk or stand. Awesome. I see my rheumatologist again on Friday to talk about whether the most recent trial treatment for my "fibromyalgia like symptoms" is helping. Honestly? I'm not so sure it is.

Luckily, APL had yesterday off and was able to work from home today to help me out. I'm really grateful he has a little flexibility at work. So we're hunkered down and hanging in there, waiting for OZL and me to feel better.
