Christmas didn't go as planned

December 30, 2017

I’m writing this for when anyone asks “how was your holiday break?”

Christmas eve: Got a stomach bug which caused me to have bodily fluids come out of both ends. Was taken to urgent care.

Christmas day: Stayed in bed all day and missed my daughter’s first Christmas.

1 day after Christmas: I celebrate late Christmas with my daughter in the morning by making pancakes for her and opening presents by the Christmas tree. Later that night, daughter gets fever.

2 days after Christmas: Wife and I learn, from a pediatrics appointment, that it’s a minor ear infection. I stay in a 1.5 hour line at CVS to pick up her medicine.

3 days after Christmas: Wife catches a cold and stays in bed all day. Daughter feels better though :)

4 days after Christmas: I catch the cold as well, but fighting it as best I can. Wife and daughter are feeling better.  

How was your Christmas break?
