This Mama Is Sick

05 November 2008
Yesterday around noon, I started getting chills and my stomach felt like it was full of lead. I had a 102.3 temperature. I took some Motrin and napped until the kids came home from school. I stayed up and tried to be coherent until Dan came home. The kids sat in our bedroom floor and did their homework while I lay down and supervised. After he came home, my night is somewhat a blur. I slept int hat weird, thick, fever induced sleep for awhile. My fever broke around 11 and I thought I'd be okay, but by 1:30 it was over 105! Yuck!

So today my tummy feels better, but my temp goes up every three hours, I guess when the medicine wears off. It's going to make today fun. I am going to try to get a few things done, then lay about the rest of the day. I hope I feel better soon.

Does your whole house fall apart when you feel unwell? It seems that I'm the only person capable of doing anything around here. Me asking for a bowl of soup last night was a major ordeal. It amuses me that if anyone else in this house was ill they'd have a cold wash cloth for their head, something cool to drink on the night stand, and be basically waited on hand and foot. I guess us Mamas are a rare breed. Thankfully, I have a wonderful friend who I know will come help me if I really need anything. It's nice to know someone cares.

Since this is turning into a long babbling post and I'm getting chilled, I think I'll sign off now. I'm going to curl up under the covers and watch To Sir With Love and try to feel better.

Y'all have a good day!

I'm sorry you're sick. My husband and I had strep throat this past weekend. I can totally relate to no one knowing how to do anything around the house. Men just don't get it. I hope you feel better soon. It's always a bummer when mom gets sick because we don't get a day off.
