A House Full of Sick People! HELP!

Since I last checked in, my husband went to Las Vegas for work for a week so I got to play the role of single mom for a week and let me tell you, it's exhausting!!  The day after my husband got home I went to a movie with my mom and I get a text saying Dylan just puked everywhere.  He got sick 6 times that day.  Two days later, my husband was sick and hasn't stopped being sick and was diagnosed with pneumonia and fluid in his lungs.  And through out this, AJ has been sick about once every 4 days.  Like he gets sick or throws up but it's perfectly healthy the next day.  Same thing with Dylan.  I have no idea what is going on.  One day I think they have the flu, a few days later it seems like a sinus infection or bad head cold and then it cycles all over again. 

One thing I know is when I get sick, there is no mercy for me because it's likely someone else is sick and I still have to take care of everyone else and make dinner and do laundry and do dishes and get up in the middle of the night with the kids, etc.  So I was so thankful it looked like I had dodged the sickness bullet until Saturday when I woke up and my whole body ached and my throat was on fire.............and of course it was my husband's day to be on call at work so as soon as I came back from Weight Watchers at 9am, he had to go into work for 3 1/2 hours. 

However, my kids were angels!  Dylan curled up next to me on the couch and AJ even brought my empty cup of water to the kitchen sink and neither whined for anything.  As of today, everyone is sick to some degree and we are all taking medicine and I'm hoping by the weekend we will all be rested and recovered!

I'll update this weekend on weight loss but I'm down 8.8lbs since January 23rd...slow and steady....but I need to start exercising because my weight loss has slowed down a lot and I'd like to lose at least 1 pound per week!
Dylan said he wanted to go play, but he had no energy once he got over there:(

This doesn't happen much anymore, my baby boy sleeping in my arms:)

He was feeling better and I said, "Get your boots and hat on so we can go to Grandma's!"  I meant snow boots and winter hat!

  1. Awww this looks all so familiar! Eden only sleeps in my arms when she is sick too. I don't know what it is but they can be so sick and then the next day have gotten over it. Kids are so resilient.... Hope the sickness didn't linger for too long. X
