alive.

after my brief life as a mute on wednesday, i woke up on friday feeling like a frieght train had run over me, backed up, and then did it again. i was oozing out of various orifices, coughing, holding my head as to keep my brain from leaving due to its throbbing pain.

i got the kiddo ready to go, and went off to work. and then i was promptly told to call a doctor, for i was sick.

i luckily just had the flu, but the doc told me that jonas needed to be as far away as possible until i was feeling better since he's still so young. so he had a rousing weekend at his grammy and gramps house. i ended up crashing there saturday night because my mom didn't want me to be alone while i was sick and john was at work.

i woke up sunday feeling like a new person. i think it helped that i slept all of friday and saturday, waking up for 30 minutes here and there.

and what did i find on sunday? one congested baby who was sporting a newly sprouted (and FREAKING RAZOR SHARP) toofer. i've never been happier that i weaned him when i did.

i then died a thousand deaths because he's getting so old.

ugh. motherhood.

oh, I'm so glad you are feeling better!!! So you can be with Jonas? We heard that you had to be quarantined for 7 days or something crazy like that.

I am familiar with that freight train.

Wendy, i hope Jonas doesn't need the tamiflu. I've heard that in children it can have some pretty nasty side effects ...like TRIPPING halucinations : ) I wonder what Jonas would be posting on his facebook page then?!
