Well 2017 has not been so kind to us health wise…yet!
I got sick New Years Day and I am still sick. All of southern California I think is sick with the same crud.
Daphne has been feeling meh for the past few days and it turned into something yesterday with a cough, and low grade temp.
Yesterday evening she spit up at therapy and then after she woke after going to bed for the night puked a little of her dinner up but then ate 3/4 of a banana and was wired for hours.
Till about 1am that is. Luckily it was Rich’s night [insert snarky smile]
He said she had trouble breathing, swallowing and coughing and her temp was still hanging around so off to the doctor we went today.
A little oral steroid and hopefully a couple days of rest and she will be ok. Fingers Crossed!
We have a very busy weekend ahead and actually for the next couple of weeks so we cannot handle a sickness slowing any of us down.
Adelaide also complained of sinus pressure last night and that kid is the one that can really not get sick since the craziness involves her…
Soccer Tournament Two Weekends in a row with a Cheer Competition in San Diego Sunday..she needs to be in tip top shape (literally)!
She is not a fan of the Neti-Pot (I love it!) nor does she like the steam inhaler thing, so a little vicks, saline spray to clean her nose and off to bed she went, can we say Placebo effect?!
Hopefully she just wanted some attention from the rest of the sick folks in the house. Rich has this as well but not as bad as Daphne and I.
While at the doc getting examined I asked again about her tongue the red spots and white areas and that I cannot brush them away but she does not seem bothered and the doc said you know I think she has Geographic Tongue… ummm what?
Well it sounds right and the pictures match up to Daphne’s tongue and the side effect is sensitivity to salt and acidic foods…..ding ding her mama has this as well. I do not have the splotches as much as Daphne but I cannot handle salty food AT ALL and acidic bleh. Probably why I have not loved fruit that much. It makes my mouth RAW.
This is normal and nothing to be done about it just avoid the foods that bother you.
We are sensitive gals, what can I say.
Any tips you have for good organic, non gmo, no sugar, no crap vitamins (gotta stay with the trend)or steps to boost your immune system, I am all EARS!
