Sick, sick, sick.....DOUBLE UPDATED!!!

Stupid Blogger won't allow me to add a picture, so we're just going to have to forge ahead without one.

I'm sick.

I think I caught strep throat from Aaron. Yesterday I had chills, and a slight fever, and my throat was killing me. I stopped by Walgreen's and loaded up on Tylenol, cold medicine, and throat lozenges. I kept waking up last night because I would swallow and it would hurt. This morning, no chills, no fever, no headache...but my throat still hurts.

I am taking Daniel to his first dermatologist appointment at 9:15 (this was a long-standing appointment), and then I am heading off to my doctor, hopefully for a shot.

For now I'm going back to bed. I'll let you all know how it goes.

UPDATE: I got Daniel taken care of and back to school. Still just a little tired, but the throat still hurts. I can't see my doctor until 2:50 so I guess I'm just going to lay around and rest. Maybe watch "The View"? (grin) Ahhhhhhh, a day to myself, even with a sore throat. I must resist the urge to clean.

UPDATE #2: I do have strep. I had to get a shot in the backside (which sparked an interesting conversation with the nurse about my tattoo). I have to stay home again tomorrow because I am still contagious until 24 hours after the shot. My assistant (and I'm sure half the people on staff at my school) is ready to murder me. And yes, this morning when I was feeling "perkier", I DID clean...but it was good because then when I drooped in the afternoon, things were done. My parents made dinner for me and my kids, and my dad even went to the grocery for me.
Thanks for all the kind words. I will be back to "normal" (whatever that is) on Thursday.

Crap! Get well soon. However, if you went to school and breathed on a couple of select kids, coming back could be easier. *evil laugh*

Get plenty of rest and and take it easy. And ice cream! Ice cream is the key to strep!! ;-)

Get better soon!!!

Anyone with a gorgeous haircut like yours can't possibly be sick for long.

Strep is really going around- yuck!
I hope you did resist the urge to clean- I know I'd have to fight that too, unless I felt really crappy.

I hope you enjoyed your day and feel better soon.

Taking a shot in the bum is always fun. Just don't over do it. Get lots of rest and relaxation.
