Let's first address my lack of attention to this little old space of mine. The sad and honest truth is this...for the last 3.5 weeks, we have been up to our ears in sickness....and snow! Two of my most favorite things...said no one ever.
It all began early February when Hadley just wasn't acting herself. A fever and a grouch when she finally exclaimed, "ear huwt".
Off to our first doctor's appointment...ear infection...no big real right?
Five days later....this one crashes and complains of ear pain.
We couldn't even make it to the doctor on this particular day...why you ask? Oh just a snowpocalypse. So we had tons of snow on the ground, and this guy couldn't even go out and enjoy. Bum deal, but we improvised and brought a little snow inside for some ice cream! This began a week of school cancellations.
A couple of days later, I get a call from Hadley's MMO program saying she was crying and saying her tummy hurt. NOOOO! So I go get her and this is what we saw for the next 5 days....yes 5...full days of sick.
She was a sad pitiful mess who only wanted to sleep and cover up her head.
Until the horrific stomach cramps and diarrhea started on day 2....then there was that.
Oh and if this wasn't enough, we spent our Friday night at after hours for a bacterial eye infection. Fun times.
So a week goes by...Monday morning...all is well....school is back in and we are ready!!!
....and then we're not.
He made it through school that day, but fell asleep on the counter eating lunch, which is absurd for him...like the craziest thing I've ever seen. This boy has never fallen asleep anywhere but his bed, couch or carseat. Soon after...the puking started....all the puking...and he missed.
The same intense stomach cramps were soon to follow and lasted another complete 5 days!
This was the craziest sickness. He would wake up feeling fine, eat breakfast, play and then about noon each and every day....BAM. Puke and down!
...and not to worry, at the tail end of Meyer's sickness....I was hit with the plaque. Thankfully, mine was shorter and less severe, but still not fun.
Almost a month later and everyone was finally good to go. Both kids were back on schedule all this week....AND THEN THIS....
Wait. Stop. Is this a mistake? Why did I just get a call that school is canceled? Rain delay? Are those real things?
I need a drink.
