Something out of the ordinary happened this week. You see I hardly get sick…
I’m pretty sure my body was saving up all the non-sick times so I could be sick so long during pregnancy. 29 weeks of morning sickness has made me a master of the porcelain throne.
But back to this week. I woke up Sunday grumpy mc grumperson. My back ached, I was sporting a headache, and was just all around tired. I figured it was a fun hangover and I would shake it after a good caffeine dose.
Flash forward to that evening.
A headache I couldn’t shake. A fever I couldn’t sweat out. And a sore throat. I did what I figured my dad would prescribe- a few Advil, a nap, and some liquids (not of the cocktail variety). But I couldn’t get rid of it…
On Monday my tonsils decided to get massively massive on me I marched myself into the doctor hoping I was being silly and it was just an upper respiratory something or rather.
Instead I have the strep.
and you know what they say. moms never get sicks days. which is definitely true, i can honestly say i have never, ever, seen my mother sick. i can’t remember a time in all my childhood where she complained about not feeling well. she put on her big girl panties and powered through. which is exactly what i attempted. but you know what makes a sick moms life easier? Support. Like two moms who offer to come over and help (just their offer made me feel warm and fuzzy. But maybe that was the temperature speaking) and a husband who comes home a precious hour early from work to save my sore throat sanity. lex has been a good sport, and her idea of helping mommy not be sick anymore involves sharing things like spoons and toothbrushes. . . she is so not scared of the germy germs.
I tried to have the pups babysit her while I napped. Zero luck- those mutts are good for nuthing. Instead we survived by chillin in the bounce house , watching more tv than I’m comfortable admitting too, hitting up story-time, and taking 3 hours naps.
i swear strep sucks. this is my first merry go round with it. and i have zero clue where i picked up this nasty virus (perhaps the gym?). but i could live the rest of my life without it and never, ever miss it.
so cheers to feeling a little more human.
and because its blasphemy to post without a picture here’s a picture of lex keeping it cla-to the-ssy and pretending to be mommy dry-heaving into the potty.
