Title of this post.... UGH

Some good things about this week:

  • Brok is completely cruising FAST along the furniture & is getting into EVERYTHING
  • I dyed my hair darker... now I just need a haircut
  • I had my 6wk post partum appt on Thursday & I found out I weigh less than I did before I got pregnant (why is that? I eat 10x as much) which was nice. Kevin was not feeling well but wasn't too bad yet... I was fine & so were the kids!
  • I found so many of my friends from high school in the blogging world! Yay for catching up!
  • I have only had 2 cans of soda in the last 2 wks! (maybe that's why I was smaller)
  • Lukas's thrush is GONE!

The theme of the rest of this post... SICK, SICKER, SICKEST...

Little did I know... It all started on Friday...

Brok, Lukas & I had a playdate with kids from early intervention (one of Brok's therapies) well really only one kid. It was a lot of fun for Brok, he got out of the house, got to interact with kids his age & ones who have been through what he is going through. It was really good for me to meet this mom because her son will be 2 next month & just started walking & still doesn't talk either... She gave me encouragement in saying that her son went through the same steps as Brok & that cruising was a close step to when he first started walking. I felt great & looked great (I actually got ready for the day) Then about 2pm, I started feeling stuffed up, my nose was "leaking" but I was still feeling good. Then it came to about 330, Kevin was leaving for work & I started to feel dizzy & had the worst sinus headache. NO FUN! But I chugged through it until Brok went to sleep at 9 & i followed with Lukas. Kevin was still at work & didn't get home til midnight. When he got home, I was so stuffed up, had a horrible headache & couldn't barely move but still had to feed Lukas... After I did that I went into the hot shower thinking that would help... nope... Since I am breastfeeding I can't take anything but it got so bad that I couldn't even sleep... it was 2am & I hadn't slept at all. So I tried to find a tylenol, nope don't have any... but after I had given birth the doc gave me vicadin so I ended up taking one of them & sleeping a little bit til at 4 Lukas was up again & up til 630. Then Brok woke up at 7 & well that was the start of an awful week. I am so SICK!

Brok & Lukas both got somewhat of a cold but since they are littler, they are SICKER than me...
I still haven't gotten better & I still don't get any sleep. I am stuffed up, Have a horrible persistent headache & feel like death... But that's the least of it!

Yesterday Kevin woke up with a migraine... which is not a normal thing for him... & this is a migraine to end them all. I have NEVER seen him in so much pain. He was crying for me to call the doctor or to go to the ER. He was seriously debilitated. So besides that I am still sick, I now have a hubby who is the SICKEST of all! He went to the doctor who said because he never had one before it was a concern & is sending him back today to check because it is still not gone away.

So as you can see, not a fun week... How is it that when I get sick, someone gets sicker? Why can't I for once actually be sick? I would love nothing more than to just curl up in bed & sleep.

Hopefully this next week will be better...

Sorry Ash! Being sick is the worst! (it's even worse when you have others to care for.) I am always getting sick, so my adivce: Drink lots of fluids and take Vitamin C!

Ashley & Kevin said...

Haha I would but I was told by the doc that Vitamin C decreases the effectiveness of Birth Control & I sure as heck don't need me another baby anytime soon!
