Being Sick Sucks!!

Considering how lame that post title is that should tell you just how sick I am. LOL. What started out as a simple cold over two weeks ago has now turned into a barking cough that Hubby swears is pertussis, a sinus infection over my right eye, a throat that feels like I've spent the last week eating shards of glass, and a feeling in my chest like I've been punched repeatedly by the Incredible Hulk. Sounds lovely doesn't it? Dammit.

Big B and Hubby caught the cold and then got over it, Sis was the one lucky family member who didn't get it at all, and MonkeyBoy still has it holding on to him a little bit as well. I feel worse for him than I do for myself because he's such an active little bug that being sick is driving him bananas!

I'm afraid this post won't be very long or very exciting either and I apologize. I just wanted to make sure I posted something so that the few people who are left reading this blog will actually still read. *laughing* We all know how flaky I can be when it comes to posting but this time you can at least know that it's only because I'm a sickly gal. *wink*

So I'm afraid that is it for tonight and I will try to post something exciting tomorrow if the Hubby and heathens allow me online. I keep getting yelled at to go back to bed and I'm not a stay in bed all day kinda gal so I'm about to go postal on all of them.

In good news, my adorable friend Katie will be here in one week from England! YAY!! She will be here for a little over a month and I can't wait to spend time with her. Most importantly though I hope that the treatment she receives here in the states will ease her pain and give her the life she is use to back.

I feel for you. I'm not as bad off, but I had a sore throat on Dec. 21 and I'm still fighting the last of the drainage.

The shards of glass in the throat sounds awfully familiar. I hope you get better fast, and that you have a blast with your friend!

Amanda said...

I'm sick, too.

My kids got sick the last two weeks and I thought I'd managed to avoid it , but lo and behold! Monday I came down with fever and body aches.

The only thing worse than being sick with the flu is being sick with the flu while you have kids to take care of.

Sorry to hear you got this gunk that is going around. Everyone in my house has had it for the last 2 weeks.

I will be thinking postive thoughts for you.

Hey, punk. Just wishing you a very Happy Valentine's Day. Yeah, that's right. I'm getting all mushy on you. What are you gonna do about it? Be sick? Feh.

Oh, and I like the cleanup you've done on the blog too! Those links in the upper left make it sooo much easier to stalk, er, follow you around the internet!

Kids here are sick as well. One school had to be closed because of flu. Just be careful and get well soon.

I hope you are well now. It's my first time here but I really like your blog, and what you call your kids sounds interesting too!

I am so sorry you are sick. We have had 4 out of 5 of us sick, too. My son and I cannot let it go either.

It sucks. You're right.

Feel better soon! Have fun with your friend!

Feel better!
Yep, three weeks ago I had bronchitis, then last week had the norvovirus/gastroenteritis... so I know from sick.

I added you as a fave on Entrecard!

Get some rest, drink lots of fluids, lock the heathens in their bedroom, all the normal advice...
