Sick And Tired

Bleeccccccccchhhh! Both kids have been sick since Saturday. Finn was his worst so far on Monday, just before his pediatrician officially identified his ongoing misery as Bacterial Conjunctivitis and Otitis Media. (He's got a nasty, runny case of Pink Eye and an ear infection.)

Baby Shea's coughing like a barking seal and sleeping like a newborn, in maddening little two/three-hour stretches.

The top shelf of the fridge is filled with prescription meds and plunger droppers, while Finn's magic eye drops are nearby on the countertop. John and I have been gathering everything within Finn's reach to be laundered in extra hot water or wiped down with antibacterial solution. He's extremely contagious and won't be back to school for many days.

It's gonna be a loooooooooonnnnnngggggggggg week.
