I have a cold. Please pray Ellie doesn't get it. Kit's home today to watch Ellie so that I can rest and heal and so that Ellie doesn't get sick from my coughing and sneezing.
I've been fighting bad allergies for the past month or so (and off and on since the spring). Since I'm still pumping for Ellie, I haven't wanted to take anything. But they got pretty bad, and I went to the doctor Tuesday to make sure I hadn't gotten an infection of some sort. I didn't have an infection. He just gave me some nasal spray that his wife, an OB, confirmed was okay for me to use and suggested I get a Neti Pot to flush out my sinuses. (We're also supposed to keep Coco out of our room as much as possible and get dust mite free bedding since lately it has been worst at night.)
The Neti Pot worked at clearing my sinuses but now the allergies appear to have turned into a cold, complete with a hacking cough and sheer exhaustion. Yuck. We've been so careful to wash our hands and keep Ellie away from germs. And now I'm the one who might get her sick. Argh. Thanks for your prayers!!
