Daddy's been sent to the basement

I started feeling like I had a cold last Thursday night and promptly isolated myself from Sarah and Vanessa. I then got an ear infection, a sinus infection, and conjuctivitis on top of a bad cold. Plus the Skins lost again, but that's another story.

A throat culture finally revealed yesterday that I have something called h flu, which is a misnomer since it's symptoms are similar to the real flu but it isn't really the flu. I'm finally on the right antibiotic now to fight it so I should be able to resume parenting duties in 2-3 days. Poor Sarah has had to tend to Vanessa by herself for a week while checking up on daddy as well. Hopefully I'll be able to give her a break on that front soon.

In better news, Sarah tried out her breast milk pump for the first time this week and was able to pump without a problem. Vanessa didn't want anything to do with the bottle the first time, but a second try yield some results. It'll be nice when Sarah isn't the only person who can feed Vanessa. We may give it a try for real this Saturday as Nana (my mom) is going to watch Vanessa as Sarah goes into teach. It's so nice to have such eager help so close by!
