It's been a month since I blogged. My husband was sick for over 2 weeks last months from that horrible respiratory thing, and then I caught it. I haven't been that sick in years. I just finished 2 weeks of antibiotics and while the worst is o... Read more
Just wanted to say hello.
My husband has been sick for about a week with something flu-like. I've caught a milder version of it.
