I was sick last Sunday and Monday. Then I started to get a killer cold Tuesday, about 36 minutes after I arrived at work for the day. I finally started feeling human on Thursday, but then got a last ditch "let's see how cruddy we can make our owner feel" from my body and couldn't breathe until this morning. I was able to sleep with my mouth closed for the first time in about 3 nights last night. My nose is disgusting looking - all dried out and red.
Then yesterday, Elizabeth was supposed to spend the night at a friend's house.....until she complained about feeling really cold (when it was quite comfortable in the house) and I took her temperature, which turned out to be almost 102. By the end of the day, her slight cough had turned into something a bit more yuckky sounding, and today, she's getting the "I've been smoking for 42 years" sound about her. She still has a fever. Oh, she also broke out in hives today too. Not sure where those came from?
So......I will be staying home with her tomorrow and taking her to the doctor.
I really really really hope this is it and no one else catches whatever it is that we've had (hint hint Alexandra). Of course, I don't want Greg to get sick either, but you know......it's a lot easier on me if he's sick and not one of the kids.
Gotta be as selfish as possible, you know.
Meanwhile, I PROMISE that I'll have some more interesting stuff to post one of these days.
I can't wait until spring.
