State of Our Union: Viral Edition

This saga started back in March. I got prepared to go back to work. My family visited for Emma's birthday. The following week Emma entered daycare part time and we settled into our new routine. The next week we came down with the norovirus. It was the most violently sick 48 hours of our lives. We had a week or so of semi good health and then were hit with regular colds. No big deal. We headed to California for a visit - Ian got sick 2nd day, me the 3rd and Emma the 4th.
We returned to Canada on May 2nd. Over the next 3 weeks, we battled a bad virus that let strep throat take a ride. Ian came down with pneumonia. All of us got eye infections. May was a really hard month. I feel for anyone dealing with chronic illness. It's hard to see the light at the end of tunnel but I believe we have turned a corner. Ian is mostly back together. My eyes are getting better but I still have a sore throat. It's nice to be functional again. Emma was the healthiest of our party. Her appetite is back and is now just working through cutting some teeth.
We had a really good weekend of running errands and enjoying the rain. I'm looking forward to life getting back to normal. Tonight Ian did the normal thing and read to Emma after her bath. :)
