Mommies aren’t supposed to get sick.

When we were little our mom was never sick. (At least that’s how I remember it.) I remember her being sick a time or two when I was older. I think the entire house stopped functioning.

This weekend, I’ve been sick. On the way back from the Atlanta Speech School on Friday, my throat started tickling on the left side, and I was hoping that it was a sore from a chip I had eaten at lunch – anything besides a *gasp* sore throat! By Friday night, my entire throat was tickling, and Saturday morning when I woke up it was on fire. Great. My first cold in almost 2 1/2 years. Not too bad. (But my mind is screaming just like last time, “HANDWASHING BREACH! HANDWASHING BREACH!”)

I knew I was careful with Blair, as always, but I couldn’t remember if she had drunk after me on Friday. Regardless, we sent her to her Grandmom and Andad’s house. I ended up with a fever, so I went to the med stop to make sure I didn’t have the flu (our shots are scheduled for Tuesday), and I didn’t. The sole reason I went was for Blair. If I had the flu, she needed meds asap. If she were to get sick, we needed to know what I had. But I think it was just a cold, and maybe a throat infection. I loaded up on Zicam and cold medicine and hung out with a lot of time on my hands this weekend. Whatever did we do with all the spare time we had before we had a kid?

I’ve been praying so hard for God to protect Blair from this because even a little cold can send us back to the hospital. Today she moved to Gigi and GT’s house for two more nights. I got to wave at her in the truck on the way. Of course, she is pleased as punch to be spending all this time at her grandparents’, but I miss her so!

oh, so sorry 'bout all that. i'll be praying for sweet blair's protection.

something natural i do for the kids to boost their immune system is this:

i give it to them if someone in the family is sick or if i think they are about to get sick. i've seen it at walgreens.

take care of yourself!!!
