Shortly after I posted my last entry, Susanna got dreadfully sick and was pretty ill with tummy problems for a full day as well as aches and pains for another two days.....I was, too, but not as bad with the tummy. Then Tony woke up Monday feeling like he, too, was hit by a truck. I don't think I've ever seen him that bad...for two full days he didn't move very often from the couch. By then, I was feeling better, but I had some major head congestion going on, so bad that my tooth sockets hurt. Yesterday, I was so thankful that finally, FINALLY, it appeared we were all completely healthy again.
Then, around 10:00 p.m., I started feeling, as my mother-in-law describes it, ishy. I went to bed, but had to rush downstairs around 1:30 p.m....and spent most of the night pretty sick. Still so today.
Please pray for us. We're normally a very healthy family, especially considering we have two young children, but this has been a really rough winter for us.
I'm hoping and praying this is the seasonal flu...that we've got it, are done with it, and will be healthy for the rest of the time. We went thru a mild version of Swine Flu back in October/November that hit everyone....so hopefully, our immune systems have the necessary whatever it is to prevent us from getting the same thing twice.
Being sick isn't fun. Being sick when you're a mom is even worse.
I'm going back to bed.
