After This, I am Sanitizing my Entire House from TOP to BOTTOM!

I feel bad for my mother who had two very sick children much of the time for several years.   My brother was almost always sick as a child (severe asthma).   I have no idea how she did it.   I officially tip my hat to you, mother.   I had no idea how hard it was on mama to have sick babies!
