10 Months, 1 Weeks, 6 Days

Sorry, no new photos. I hadn't mentioned but after just about getting over my cold last week i found myself re-infected on Sunday and as the week went on i was getting worse not better. This morning in particular was bad so i managed to get in to see my Doc at lunch. I've been given antibiotics for bronchitis so i spent the evening on the couch trying to rest up. Work is crazy right now so i can't easily take time off and i was completely beat by the end of the day. I took my first antibiotic dose in early afternoon so hopefully it will work it's magic.

I'm also seriously considering seeing a Chinese herbalist to see if there is anything that can be done to help my immune system out-- beyond washing my hands and eating well. I'll let you know what happens.

Henry seems to be a little under the weather too. Nothing terrible but he's re-congested and still has his terrible cough. He hasn't been sleeping wonderfully at night so i think he's probably not feeling at the top of his game. Hopefully we'll be able to make it through tomorrow and then have the weekend to really rest and recuperate.

Henry has his Occupational Therapy assessment tomorrow afternoon so i'll make sure to let you know how that goes.

I've never been to a Chinese herbalist (let us know how it goes!) but here is my recommendation: I swear by this stuff -- http://www.sambazon.com/flash.html -- Amazon cherry pulp with boatloads of vitamin c and other good stuff.

I buy the frozen packets (also check out the anitoxidant-loaded acai fruit, a bit more of an acquired taste that I also love) at Yes, the local health food store. The kids and I dump them in smoothies with yogurt, oj, and cinnamon, and we've managed to dodge a lot of viruses going around DC right now.
