Health Update

Just thought I'd pop in with a health update and a promise to get better about blogging and posting recent pics of sweet Wes now that I'm on the mend.

I got a call this past Monday from my Doc. She let me know that I had Epstein Barr Virus, the same virus that causes mono...even though I didn't have mono. It basically just takes a really long time to get over, but it's also really common and most people have had it by the time they're 35. Also, I think I exposed Wes to it and they say that infants don't usually have any symptoms but can build up an immunity so hopefully I've spared him of getting sick in the future.

So, these days I've been taking it easy...one small outing a day is all I am allowing myself and at least one nap a day is a must. Thankfully Wes has been cooperating by being an incredible little napper.

I just love my little cutie and can't wait to feel 100% so I can truly enjoy mothering him and connecting with other people. Sorry if you've been neglected by me...I'm going to make it up to you!

And now some Wesley photos...

Glad to hear you're on the mend! I had a cold this week and that was enough to set me back, nevermind a strand of mono. Get well soon.

Glad you're getting better! I've been sick for about a week now, which is about 6 days longer than I ever get sick for.

I wonder if it's the same thing... A lot of coughing and hacking up stuff, I suppose I could find out if I didn't have a fear of doctors :)
