Unintentional "Right" Way to Taper

I have this little problem not relaxing or letting myself take time off, really? Pretty sure all of my readers have figured this out as well. Thank you strange virus for making us all take a break from life!

It all started on Monday morning when O woke with a slight cough, she just finished 10 days of antibiotics for an ear infection and respiratory crud but was better. It wasn't bad so I ignored it figuring it would improve, even sent her gymnastics on Tuesday morning where she seemed fine until she got home and only wanted to cuddle on the couch. My little girl was a ball of fire: yep I was right 104 fever, ugh, and refused to eat lunch. Called the clinic and got in the car only to gain my first car vs. child vomit experience :(

Even when sick she has to be silly! Look at those tired eyes.

Poor kid got many first that day: negative strep culture, a chest x-ray (we had bet on her needing an arm or leg film first!) thanks to a nasty cough and lower then normal O2 sats. We eventually left with the words we all hate "it's a virus" so in other words go home and relax.

My running buddy...
Now on to Wednesday, I headed out with Morgan for a run. We ran 4 mile and I planned to do more on my own, but was dragging and almost decided against it. Instead headed back out blaming my lack of energy on lifting on Tuesday and 7.5 hilly miles. I ended up cutting things short only to spend my afternoon on the couch realizing what my child was going through. I was quickly transported back to working overnights and that wonderful mixed feeling of fatigue, dizziness, headaches and mild nausea.
Spring finally...I hope!
So here I sit, sleeping in and taking it easy during a taper like I should. Plenty of cuddles on the couch with O who still remains sick this morning, fever and lack of appetite continue for her. I'm still just slightly not great but enough to know I'm not great. 70s in the forecast starting tomorrow so I just need to be better by then, at least enough to sit outside and soak up the sun.

  4. I hope you both kick this soon. O does look a little tired but it amazes me how she still found it in her to play a little. Kids are so resilient.
