I've been very sick!

Just wanted to give a quick update on what's been going on around here. On Friday morning after I returned from the YMCA I started feeling a little yucky. I took my temp and it was just barely 99 degrees so I thought I would be fine. Within 2 hours my throat hurt, my body ached and my fever was almost 103 degrees. I could not even get out of my bed to take care of my boys. My Visiting Teacher (thanks Sarah!) came over to pick up Andrew for school and also get Brayden out of his crib and set him in his high chair for lunch. I don't know how I managed until Bryan got home but I made it. I thought that it was just the flu that everyone around here seems to have had. At 10:30 pm on Friday night Brayden started majorly throwing up and that lasted for 3 hours! I finally fell asleep at 2:30am and woke up at 3:30am in so much pain I could hardly stand it. I decided to drive myself to the ER and get tested for strep. I tested positive and got on the antibiotics by 5:00am on Saturday. I've been on the antibiotics for 32 hours now and I am still in extreme pain. My throat looks like something you would see in a horror film, just totally disgusting!!! I still can hardly swallow and I sound so funny when I talk. So funny, in fact, that Bryan thinks he has to repeat what I say dramatically and laugh. What a husband I have. He can find the humor in the weirest situations. I'm glad somebody can laugh at this!!

Anyway, didn't mean for this to be a downer post but I just feel terrible. Hopefully I will be feeling better by tomorrow. I'm not holding my breath but am hoping. I have so much to do around here!!

Oh, being sick is no fun and strep is definitely the worst. Get lots of sleep and tell your husband to quit laughing =)
