I survived!

All I can say is that I am so glad to be well again! The flu hit me hard about a week ago. I wore doctor's masks non-stop around Finn and did all I could to prevent him from getting sick. And it worked! He didn't get sick. It definitely helped to have Dennen and my mom around to take care of Finn so I had minimum contact with him.

I am so grateful that I don't have to take all these meds anymore.
And happy that I don't look like the unibomber (creeper) anymore.
Don't worry I didn't go out into public with the mask, just the sunglasses.
Let me just say that the flu I got was nothing, compared to what else I got. A double eye infection. Has anyone else had one of these infections straight from Hell?!? I got some antibiotic drops for them that hurt like the dickens. That was actually one of the side effects from the drops. More pain. What the?! You know that song, "I wear my sunglasses at night, so I can, so I can...?" That was me. I was wearing my sunglasses at night because my eyes hurt so bad that any bit of light burned them like a hot poker. The only thing that made them feel better was keeping them closed. So Dennen led me around like a visually impaired person. Maybe I should have rented a seeing eye dog... Can you do that?

Oh to be well again, hallelujah!!!!

On to non sick topics. Grandma Marci sent Finn some cute new clothes. Check out that little striped vest. Adorable! And apparently he really digs the cardboard box too.

Today we went on a little jaunt in the new snow we got. Finn seemed to enjoy himself. How could he not? I would love to ride around in a backpack like that!

Life is good. I'm glad I have my vision back so that I can see this little cu-tie.

You're funny! I chuckled a little reading your post. Is that bad? I'm sorry you were sick. Double eye infection sounds painful. that's amazing Finn didn't get sick.

Your eye infection sounds HORRIBLE. I hope to never experience something like that! Good work with the mask, though...I don't think I would have thought of that but it's genius! Next time I'm sick I'm totally going to sport one of those.

Oh, and Finn's sunglasses are the coolest. He looks SO awesome with them on! :)
