 Sometimes we do get sick days

Okay - because I got a little bit whiny, a couple of posts ago, about moms not getting sick days - I thought I should go on record as saying that there are rare occasions where they do.

Forgive me if this is short and slightly muddled. My brain function right now is... short and slightly muddled.

I've had a fever for 4 days.

I'm glad this isn't a vlog.

The sight on the other side of the screen right now? - Not attractive.

My skin tone is a really off shade of pale-ish green.

I've lost a few pounds since Sunday - and although I could never be described as "robust" - I do believe I have now taken "wimpy" to a new level.

I went to the doctor yesterday and they ordered two vials of blood to test.

Everything is normal.

Fine, so my blood says that, but my body is not saying that.

So - for the record. If a momma is sick enough, her mother in law and husband will see to it that she gets hours of quiet in her bed to rest.

And that is a huge blessing!

Excuse me while I try to get all of my strength back while taking care of my husband who only lasted 2 hours at work today.

Here we go again...

I hope you get better soon. I am feeling pretty yucky, too. Dragging myself into work is no fun -- sharing what I have will be no fun for others. I get sick days but not when there are certain mandatory meetings. Yuck!

Oh no :( I am so sorry you're still feeling so bad. The crummy thing about mommy sick days is that unfortunately by the time you actually get a "sick day" you are feeling WAY too sick to enjoy it!!! HA! I hope you get feeling better really soon, Wendi.

Thanks, Rachel. I am feeling a little better now but not completely out of the woods. I hope you are doing better, too.
