Jacob's Sick, Too

Jacob has been sick since Friday. He woke up stuffy and coughing and phlegmy. (Blogger does not think "phlegmy" is a word, but I say it is.) He has been just miserable ever since. He's so sad and clingy - well, more clingy than normal. He looks at me with his red, weepy eyes, as if saying, "Mama, DO something!"

Which coincidentally is exactly what I said to Ryan during contractions when I was in labor for like three days with Lily.

I hope he gets better soon because all the hacking and sneezing and gagging keeps him awake and keeps him very unhappy. Poor little boy.

I had another gall stone related "incident" yesterday. It took a while to pass, but was not nearly as bad as it could be. I'm not sure if that's because I know what it is now and don't freak out, or if it's because I'm getting used to it, or if it just really wasn't as bad. I'm not sure why it happens when it does. It's not like I had three wonderful slizes of Domino's pepperoni pizza the night before...

Yeah. I totally had four.

My appointment with the general surgeon to discuss the next steps is January 5th. I kinda wish it was sooner, because that means any action taken to correct this problem will be later still. Here's to hoping I don't have a lot of problems from now until then!
