So we were supposed to be throwing a first birthday party for Jadzia today, but instead we are sitting at the clinic waiting to see the doctor. Not for Jadzia though, for Ezri. She’s been sick for two and a half weeks, and after another horrible night last night, we figured it was time to have her checked out. She has a persistent cough that seems to be getting worse rather than better.
Honestly, I don’t feel too bad for cancelling Jadzia’s party. We made a household decision this morning and it was pretty unanimous, no one wanted to have the party today. I can’t blame anyone because Ezri is not the only one sick in the house. Our house guests (2 adults, 1 chid) are all sick too. Peter is finally getting over his cold as well. I seem to be alright so far (KNOCK WOOD!!!) and Jadzia is okay. Although, I have heard her cough a tiny bit today and so, of course, I am thinking the worst. It would not have been fair to invite people into the house with so many sick people.
We still have all the food and cake and everything, so we will have a small get together tonight with our immediate family and house guests to celebrate. Really though, she’s one, so she doesn’t know any better. The only thing I want is to be able to do is to give her her own cupcake, sing happy birthday and see her dive into it. Cake smash family style. I’ll be happy with that and I know Jadzia will be thrilled.
I really hope our luck starts turning around soon because I’m getting worn out from so much bad luck around here. We need to get healthy and happier for our vacation that we leave for on December 4th!
