The Bruns Pandemic

So, if you read my previous post you know that we’ve had a rough go at health the past few weeks. When I wrote that post I thought, “Wow, this is really crazy. Back-to-back illnesses. What an interesting post.” What I didn’t realize was I was going to get back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back… illnesses.  The two illnesses alone seemed like a cakewalk! I’ll keep this brief, and if you didn’t see the Bruns family from about 9/24 to 10/11, be very happy.

First, Walt had croup (ER visit) and the stomach bug. We know this.  Then, literally a day after I posted this, I sent my happy butt to CareNow only to find out I had strep. Gross. After 3 days of antibiotics and a very disturbing cough, I went BACK to CareNow to be diagnosed with bronchitis. That’s four diseases in the house in 10 days. Yuck.

Then, Walt started acting weird again. Lots of coughing. Back to the Dr. for him. Croup… AGAIN. More steroids, which made him completely rotten and breathing treatments.  Just when I think we can’t get anything else, I get a cold and more hacking.  

I’m not an over-medicator, but near the end of this epidemic, there wasn’t anything I wouldn’t consume. Vitamin C drop? yes. Mucinex? you bet. Cough medicine with codeine? Bring it.  So, now I think we are all better and ready to be released back to the public.
