The Plague

Well the sickness has finally spread to everyone in the family. I held out as long as I could but finally succumb to this horrible illness on Thursday. Amy and Jack are still sick but thankfully at the tail end of it.

I have to say Jack is a total trooper, even through his congestion, coughing fits and moments of just plain not feeling well he will still give us a smile and giggle. When Amy and I are feeling our lowest we look at Jackson and remind ourselves that if this little baby can feel this crappy but still be able to enjoy the things around him we need to buck up and do the same.

There are so many moments since having Jack that I am in awe of those who are single parents. This again is one of those times. It's hard enough being sick, but being a sick parent to a sick child is extra hard. Thankfully Amy and I have each other and we can take our turn with Jack so that we can both get some rest in and hopefully start feeling better. So once again another hats off to those that are going through this amazing journey solo.

As proof, of Jack's amazing disposition here is a picture of Amy, Jack and Grandpa (Amy's Dad) when he was here last week (both Amy and Jack were sick). I LOVE this picture!! It always makes me smile.
