When it Rains, it Pours

Ah, the old cliche saying. I normally just say it, without any regard to what it truly means. That is, until last night. And I am not even talking about the downpour and subsequent flash flooding in our area. I am talking about my life. Let me see if I can recount the illnesses we've had lately (as in the past month):

-hand, foot and mouth disease. check.
-double ear infection. check.
-double eye infection. check.
-double eye infection that would not clear with oral antibiotics and so had to get the $70 drops. check.
-sore throat, post-nasal drip, stuffy nose, runny nose, itchy watery eyes. and hardly any drugs you can take because you're pregnant. check.
And last but definitely not least: pregnant with pink eye. check. 

When I woke up at 3am last night for my nightly pee session (and let's be honest, at this point in my pregnancy I might as well sleep on the toilet I have to wake up so often to pee), my eye was sealed shut, laden with the nasty green goop that pink eye brings along. Sure enough, my eye resembled Bob the Tomato more than an eyeball. I sighed heavily, dosed a rag with warm water to clean it out, and trudged begrudgingly back to bed to lay said warm towel on my eye. Then I couldn't sleep. I was so mad. We seriously hardly ever get sick, and I feel like in the past month the sickness bug will not leave us alone. Thankfully I am friends with my eye doctor, and she gave me a few tips to try and kick this puppy naturally before I go on antibiotic drops. No walk-in clinic for me today (even if I had wanted to I am not sure Drew would've let me go after the incident on Tuesday. So, instead of enjoying an afternoon at the pool, I sit at home, flushing my eye out with artificial tears every 20 minutes in hopes that I don't have to medicate myself once again. Such a waste of a weekend I tell you. I am ready to be well for once, and I know that Little Mister and Drew would agree.
