Yesterday, I took Nathan to the doctor. The poor little guy has tonsillitis, bronchitis, and fluid in both of his years, but fortunately I took him to the doctor before it developed into an ear infection. Apparently, it’s all caused by a mycoplasma bacterial infection, which is also known as Walking Pneumonia. Only thankfully, it’s not in his lungs, just his tonsils. Nathan plays with a little boy at church who ended up giving it to Nathan and the three other kids in his group. Remember how I was ranting the other day about people bringing their actively sick kids to church? Well, this isn’t one of those times. The little boy was showing no symptoms. I even saw him, and he looked perfectly fine. So it’s not like his mom brought him to church knowing he was sick.
And now? Now I am fighting off the sickness as well. My throat has been really sore, along with a runny/stuffy nose, so I’ve been taking Zycam (which is supposed to help prevent colds or at least minimize their symptoms) so we’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, let’s hope I can overcome it because I DO NOT want what Nathan has.
