We all stayed home on Tuesday and really started to feel better by that night. But, this sickness would not let go. I tried going to work on Wednesday, my fever was long gone, but I was so hot and couldn't stop sweating! My manager ended up mentioning how flush I looked and told me it might be best just to go home and rest. I took a 4 hour nap that afternoon, so I was still fighting something! Finally by Thursday I was feeling operational! It has been years and years since something has taken me out for 3 days. Hopefully we got it out of the way and can enjoy the rest of the fall!

Down and Out!
Last Sunday I went to bed with what I thought was just a bad cold. Then I woke up at 1 am hot, nauseous and in bad shape! I actually texted my mom to see if she would be able to watch Parker on Monday since Jimmy had to work. She was at my house that morning before I was even awake to give her an update. I was achey and still had a fever, but Parker seemed to be fine. I slept most of the day trying to fight off whatever fluish thing I had. About 11:30 that morning Parker just laid down on my parents couch so they knew something was up with him as well. He also had a fever and didn't want to eat lunch. She brought him back after a LONG nap and we lounged and commiserated together. The rare snuggles are the only good thing about a sick kiddo!
