Tired? Ha!

Yesterday, I thought I was just tired from the lack of sleep. I chalked the achy muscles up to the stress from the night before. My headache, also from lack of sleep.

Emmi stayed home from school yesterday, as she finally drifted off to sleep around the time she would have to get up for school. She slept until halfway through her school day. When she finally did get up, she was cranky and didn't feel like doing much. I figured I would distract her by taking her to Target, and letting her pick out a toy or game (which by the way, we found a neighborhood sounds bingo game...perfect! Any listening activity is great for her.). Afterwards, I went to get some desserts from the tea room that my friend works at. She casually mentioned that I didn't look so good.

It wasn't until then that I realized maybe I felt a little feverish. When I got home, I discovered I had 102 fever! Within an hour it hit 103. Kenny was on the other side of town, and it took a good hour for him to get home. Luckily, Jill came home from school an dutifully played with Emmi while I camped out in the bed. I could barely move. The fever made me nauseous. I was shaking uncontrollably. It was not pretty.

This morning, my fever is down around 99.5, and I feel wonderful in comparison. I am hoping that my temperature will stay down today. I don't think I can handle two days in a row of being that sick.

Oh it sucks doesn't it! I had this as well (as did everyone in my extended family) and it feels like the worst flu any of us has ever had.

Hope you are on the mend, and thanks for the toy tip, we could use more items like that in the toy aresenal.

Hope you feel better, don't you love it when they are being angels when you aren't feeling well? Why can't they be so good when you're well enough to enjoy it?

It's from me! You know... via phone. I feel much better. It only lasted five days, haha! Hope you feel better!

Tiff, I totally was going to blame you. I already had planned to call you (on Monday of course!) to tell you how it was your damn fault!

I hope you feel better soon! You've been getting sick a lot lately, haven't you? I hope Emmi's thumb is getting better. I can't even imagine. OMG!
