My immune system isn't up to par.

Wednesday I was feeling pretty good thinking my cold was on its way out. Then Thursday it decided to start all over again.  I am back to square one with another cold.  I wasn’t completely over the first one yet.  UGHHHHHHH.  I feel awful again.  I did get in one run on Tuesday this week but didn’t get one in today because of this stupid cold.  I feel like such a slacker and I don’t want to be.  I want to exercise and lose this weight and this cold is holding me back.  It’s also supposed to rain this weekend so I will probably just rest at home under the blankets while my kids run around the house. 

My son had a very whiny night Wednesday.  I didn’t know why he was moaning and then I pick him up from daycare and they say he might have an ear infection.  Great, add it to the list of things going on with him.  Luckily we had the backup prescription for antibiotics we didn’t use before so we just went and got that filled and started him out on that.  He has a doctor’s appointment on Monday where we hope to get a referral to a pulmonologist.  I don’t know why it seems so hard to get to see one.  You would have thought after two hospital stays with upper respiratory issues we would have seen one last year, but we never pushed it.  Now we want him to see one and see if they can help us get a game plan so he doesn’t get pneumonia again.  I don’t want his lungs wrecked from multiple pneumonias.  Our medical system is supposed be so great, but it seems that the doctors just want to treat the current problem and not see what they can do to help you prevent it.   

Okay I’m done venting and sounding like a big whiner. 


  1. Ester C is my fav to boost my immune system. Much success

  2. Hope you feel better soon. Our youngest son has a double ear infection so I can feel your pain. Try to rest and let your system recuperate. Take care momma!
