This past month or two has been pretty insane with regards to illness around town.
For a few weeks, I had a killer cold/sinus/lung infection that robbed me of my voice for days at a time. I ended up going through 2 different antibiotics in an effort to kill off the secondary sinus infection for good. I don't smoke so I suspect I'd still be in a world of pain if I did. My lungs were working overtime to get the junk out. This finally cleared up midweek last week. This is also why everyone that gets prescribed antibiotics need to finish their prescription completely, even if they feel better, to prevent anti-biotic 'superbugs'. Amoxicillin wouldn't touch this infection.
Unfortunately, with two kids at public schools and a job that requires being when on site at healthcare sites/hospitals sometimes, you end up bringing home the "best" diseases.
Now, at the end of this week, Sabrina, my oldest daughter, started throwing up, after fighting off the original illness and now my wife started doing the same on Saturday. I've already had a flu shot, and I'm hoping they just have food poisoning but they haven't been eating the same things, so I suspect it isn't. So far, Juliana and I are the only healthy ones right now.
Update: As I was typing this, Sabrina just started throwing up again. The gift that keeps giving.
Why am I mentioning all of this? I'm not sure, but I try to post here a couple times per week and I haven't been able to. Family and work always comes first. I have some good OCS 2007 and Windows 7 posts almost ready, but this is why they haven't appeared yet.
