Oh my aching head.

I'm......well you know the rest of this sentence, so I'm not even going to bother saying it. LOL.

Took off yesterday to take me to the doc and to take K-man to his followup on breathing treatments.

Got up this morning and K-man felt unusually warm when I got him up. Checked his temp and sure nuff. 102 something. Can't take him to daycare with a temp over 100. So I took him with me to work while dumping Childrens motrin down him. He did good until around lunch time and while we were at lunch, he fell asleep. I got back to the office and laid him on a blanket in the floor and kept working and then a little later when he woke up he was really hot and you could TELL he didn't feel good then. Temp of 103. So I decided to just go ahead and bring him home around 2:30. Came home and laid him on one couch and he snoozed all afternoon, so I laid on the other couch and snoozed all afternoon. Figured I might need it tonight. He's burned up all afternoon though, even though I've been giving him motrin and tylenol regularly. 104 earlier and used cold cloths and a lukewarm bath to cool him down. He weren't too happy bout that bath. LOL. Bless it, he's so pitiful. We did get the fever down, but when he went to bed, it was still around 100-101, so he's still a little warm. I called the doctors office and they said if the fever continues tomorrow over 101, to call and bring him in.

Regardless of whether he runs a fever tomorrow or not, I can't take him to daycare cuz he has to be fever free for like 12 or 24 hours (can't remember which) but neither one will work, so I'm stuck with a kid tomorrow.

And my head hurts and I've kinda had a funny tummy feeling most of the day. Doctors visit yesterday sent me to the hospital. No worries though (did I freak you out?) it was just b/c the x-ray tech in the dr office is out on extended leave so they're having to send all their patients over to the hospital for any x-ray stuff. So they xrayed my neck to make sure that there isn't any kind of issues in there that are causing the brain zaps since I've had serious pain between my shoulders that has gradually gotten worse over the last two months and he doesn't know if it's connected to the meds I'm on or if it's something in my neck. WHO KNOWS. I'm really tired of not feeling good though. I haven't heard the results from that yet, hopefully it won't be much longer.

It's just a sick place around here these days though. Munchkin has a rattly cough that I gave her some of her cough medicine for tonight. She's been complaining of not feeling good, but since she's not running a fever and she only complains when she sees K-man getting the babying and being coo-ed over for being so sick, I've been shrugging it off.

I have decided though that I believe I could have discovered a niche for making money in the area. I can be a sick kid mommy for kids who can't go to their usual daycare but their parents still have to go to work. They can bring their kids over and I'll run a little hospital daycare. All I'll have to do is take my info around to all the daycares and they can stick it right in there next to the slip that says they won't take sick kids for 12 or 24 hours after fever.

The question is, do I have the nerves to deal with whiney-not feeling good-not mine-kids on a erratic and unpredictable basis. Uh. Maybe I could be the manager and hire mommies to run it. HAHA.

Anywho, nuff rambling thoughts for tonight. I'm going to bed in hopes that it makes my head feel better. *sigh*



  1. Feeling better yet? Just as a warning we are seeing LOTS of RVS and Strep Throat these days. In the past 2 months we've had maybe 2 positive flus...so that is not a concern yet. Hope you and your young'ns get better soon! Love ya girl. -j

  2. I am enjoying reading all the posts that I have missed.

    Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

    Love your new look for 08!
