The other great sickness of 2009

I'm sorry for posting this so late but I was short on time last night and this morning wasn't much better.

We got over the great stomach virus of 09 but now we have another visitor to our household and I don't want this one at all!


R1 went to the nurse yesterday and complained that his head and stomach hurt. The nurse called Hubs and he went to check on him. They gave him a peppermint and talked him into staying for the rest of the day.

Hubs also had football last night and after I got off of work, I went to meet him at the game.

I found R1 in the press box, where it was air conditioned, thank you very much. But he was asleep with his head on the counter. And when I touched his face he was on fire.

So we promptly left the game and got home and took his temperature.

102.00 was what the thermometer said. And just for good measure I took it again and it read 101.8 so I knew it was right. And he was complaining that his bones hurt too.

One dose of Motrin coming up.

Then R1 went and got on the couch for the rest of the night. R2 was so sweet, he kept checking on him and asking if he needed anything.

So today he has a doctors appointment and hopefully he will get a hefty dose of Tamiflu and we can get past the sickness.

And in the mean time, I have once again donned my hazmat suit and hosed the house down in Lysol.

Now if we can just keep the rest of us from getting it.

So this weekend when y'all are playing and having fun, think of me walking around my house in my bright white attire and packing a can of Lysol.

And it's OK if you laugh at the thought, because hopefully, I will be laughing to, hopefully!

Oh no... I hope he feels better soon! Something is definitely going around! I was sick last week, too.
