What's worse than a sick child?
TWO sick children.
What's worse than TWO VERY sick children?
Two sick children AND a sick mommy.
What's worse than two sick children and a sick mommy?
A sick mommy who can't even think about resting or taking care of herself.
Notice there is no adult medicine in the picture above?
Notice the beautiful Tupperware container full of medicine? That's because the BRAND NEW EXPENSIVE bottle of medicine had a hole in the bottom of it and was leaking from the bottle at 100 MPH.
Nathan can't stop coughing.
Austin needs to cough but can't. He sounds horrible and VERY VERY wheezy.
Both have fevers.
I am weak with a fever and a raw sore throat.
Nathan won't be going to school tomorrow. I won't be able to work out. Their regular doctor is out of town this week and they will be seeing an older Asian male doctor instead. I know my son. Nathan is totally going to FREAK OUT! They both have doctor appointment's in the morning. I will wait and see what happens with me before I pay another co pay and get to the doctor myself.
I forgot to mention two things that made my day even better!
1. I was counting down the hours until nap time today so I could rest and get a MUCH NEEDED break from two sick kids but Austin who is very sick and very tired hasn't slept all day.
2. Austin puked on me while I was trying to help him go to sleep. I wasn't able to change my shirt until I KNEW Austin wasn't going to nap at all today. I now stink like puke.
I WILL be taking a long hot shower tonight and eating PIZZA for supper. And ice cream for desert if I can get my hands on it.
If I am really lucky I will get some sleep tonight. Lots of sleep.
Be back once the three of us are feeling better! Will keep you posted on all three of us!
