two uteri, two mamas pregnant, AGAIN, with baby number two

i have the hoof and mouth thing June 30, 2008

Filed under: ttc — charlotte @ 11:00 am

Coxsackie. Including blisters on my tonsils. fun times. this is the same “rare” illness that Bri had a month ago. it is a common baby/toddler disease which adults supposedly don’t get. ridiculous. anyway, it sucks ass to be sick in a house with 2 kids and a depressed postpartum partner. yes, she is. she’s at what she calls her ‘depression class’, as i type. i try, to no avail, to get her to call it a support group, but whatev. this is a shitty week in the dosmamas household. times where we are all tired and ungenerous…where everyone needs taking care of and everyone is slightly exhausted and resentful. but Smarty did say to me last night “”mom, i’m so sorry you’re feeling bad,” yes he did, then he patted me, “do you want me to rub your feet?”  then he scratched the bottom of my feet.

    What the hell? Did we pass it around in some magical virtual contagion? I am sorry. It sucks. Wes got the spots, too, while he was in Spain. I am also very sorry that S. needs depression class. We think that name is adorable, though. We miss you guys. And love you.

    Ohhh no! I totally understand what you are going through with the coxsackie. I had it back in December and no one else in my household had it. Strange. Anyway, the narcotics they prescribed didn’t help. My mother was mad that they didn’t prescribe me an antibiotic “to prevent secondary infection”…well I guess my mom DOES know what she’s talking about because after two weeks of coxsackie ulcers, I developed a strep infection. It was NOT a fun Christmas. Hope you heal soon. Take good care of your family. It will all be ok I believe. Hope you two have spoken to a doctor about the postpartum depression… Chin up!
