Sick

Well, I am sick. SICK. Ugh. It was a really wonderful fall as far as weather goes but totally terrible concerning sickness. Our whole church had the nastiest flu ever and just kept passing it around and around. We just love to share! ; ) And now I have a yucky cold. Thankfully, it is just me (so far!!!) that has it. When every member of the family is sick at the same time, things can get dire in a house! But today Seth has done what he could to let me lie around in my pathetic state. I think sitting here to write this is the first significant amount of time all day that I have not been vertical. I don't usually bother to take a lot of medicine when I'm sick but today I've been popping mucinex, Motrin and sudafed all day, as much as the package says you can. I am glad to not be pregnant right now simply because I can be drugged up. It seems like every pregnancy, I get a horrible cold and can't take anything stronger than Tylenol. So although I'm sick, I'm highly medicated and that helps!!

Seth was very kind in taking Maddie out with him on visitation so that I could nap while Eden napped, and he even asked his mom if she could take them both during the youth meeting (right now). One thing I have realized is that I would have to be on my death bad to motivate Seth to do two things: 1. bathe the girls and 2. fix their hair. So I rose from the dead to do those things and he took care of rest. What a guy!

And now, I think I'll crawl back into my bed. I'm beginning to miss it already.

Hope you are feeling better soon! I've been sick too and I can't wait for some form of "normal" to return to our house!

After a terrible night last night, I stayed home from church today and then Seth took me to urgent care as soon as the service was over, leaving our girls at his parent's house. I got an antiboitic and a particular cough syrup the doctor recommended. I also did an ear candle which helped a little too. I'm on the mend now but I have a feeling it's going to take a few days to be 100%.
