Well, the happiness of Sean's birthday yesterday came to a screeching hault when I found myself sick with the flu...again! I just had it a few weeks ago and never thought I would get it again in the next year. I usually only get it once a year. Anyway, I couldn't sleep last night and I felt a headache building all night until it was probably the worst migraine I had ever experienced. It was awful! I took probably 10 Ibuprofins in the course of 3 hours and the headache wasn't budging. Meanwhile, I was praying that I could keep whatever was gurgling in my stomach down. Well, my prayers were not answered...not even close. I was SO SICK all night. It was terrible! I think I slept off and on a total of about 20 or 30 minutes the entire night. Sean awoke to the noises of my getting sick (sorry Sean!) and came rushing into the living room where I was to make sure I was ok. I must have sounded pretty bad because he isn't one to get too worried. I just started crying as I layed in a heap on the floor. I really don't think I have had a worse night in my entire life! Sean had to be at the hospital by 7 for school and Tate woke up just as he was leaving. I honestly didn't know what I was going to do. I felt so weak that when I went to pick him up, he felt SO HEAVY! I fed him a bottle and prayed so hard that I could lay him down in his crib and by some miracle, he would go back to sleep so that I could too! Well, believe it or not, the little sweetie went back down and slept for almost 2 1/2 more hours! I was so happy to get some sleep and by the time he awoke, I was still VERY tired, but my nausea was gone and my headache was no longer unbearable. He was so sweet...I think he must have sensed that I was not well because he sat on my lap and cuddled in and layed his head on me as we watched 2 episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Then I put him down to play and he was a little angel and played so well while I rested on the couch until Sean got home at 11:15 and I was able to go to bed! I slept most of the day while Sean had some much needed quality Daddy and Son time! Hopefully the flu bug is out of my system for at least the next year! I am off to bed now!

I hope you are feeling better! I awoke to Ava being sick last night. She got sick all over her crib and has a rash on both sides of her cheeks. She also didn't keep the bottle down this morning. So I am at home with her today. This afternoon is her 9 month check up thankfully! She is sleeping now. I hope she gets to feeling better! I hope today is better then yesterday!

Agh! Not you too! Sounds like the same flu Jeremie and my kids had. I've luckily dodged it so far! Hopefully, I will continue to do so. Maybe my teacher immune system will fight it off..
Take care..sleep, sleep, sleep.
