A bunch of sickies

January has not been a particularly healthy month for us. Between the three of us we've been to the doctor a dozen times, with another two appointments scheduled for the end of the month.

Alana had a sleep study done and a bunch of tests. She's been off sick this week with various symptoms including a series of killer headaches.

Logan had vent tubes put in his ears. Again. This is the third set, the last set going in last year. One of his ear drums is still collapsed and touching the bone. If it doesn't pop back in a couple of months, then it's probably scarred onto the bone. That means another two operations for him. We haven't mentioned this possibility to him.

I'm okay. I only had a single doctor's visit (the result? Eh.) I had a fever on Saturday, and since Monday I can't stop popping my ears. It feels like sinuses are clogged. And I, too, have a headache.

So we things haven't been too smurfy this month. Maybe February will be better.

Sorry you're under the weather. I knew you weren't well, but it came as a bit of a shock when I realized it had been over a week since your last posting.

My five-weeks-long cough seems finally to be winding down. 'Bout bloody time, says I.

It has more to do with not sleeping enough, being depressed, and being worried about Alana...

Good! That's certainly taken a long time. I'm hoping whatever I've got doesn't get worse.
