    Woke up this morning to a child with a fever. She didnt have one for 24 hours and now its back? I am truly at a loss. Not only is this the worse time imaginable for me to miss work financially, but also because of the "corporate restructuring".

    And poor Bean! She just cried and cried when I woke her up. I want to hit something. :mad:

    Oh, no. I'm sorry, M. :(

    I think I am on the verge of coming down with something. You know how you can be just on the edge, not really sick yet but starting to get symptoms? It's like your body is seeing if it can fight it off or not.

    Try and let yourself rest more, I think you drive yourself too hard, T. Sometimes that tickle in the throat is our bodies way of saying, "Let me lie on the couch for 12 hours!" and sometimes we should listen.

    The tylenol took mini monsters fever away, but I cant chance taking her to school and having it return so my brother will work from home and watch her. We are packing a care basket with pillow, blanket, toys and snacks. Most of her day will probably be watching ridiculous stop/go animation with her 12 year old cousin. o_O

    Aw, poor Bean! I hope she feels better. And I hope your work is understanding for you.... [:D]

    I'm finally beginning to feel better, but I'm still grumpy about everything. I would like my body to only malfunction one way at a time. :mad:

    Day two of stomach flu: Weak as kitten, shaky...able to choke down food a bit, but still have a fairly upset GI tract. Need to get this house fumigated. It smells like sick person in here.

    I've had a headache for three straight days. It went migraine on me late yesterday afternoon and all I did was sleep all evening. I'm still in a lot of pain. Now I'm trying to decide if I should do half a day at work or forget the whole thing.

    Sorry you're not feeling well, I know how migraines are, if you?re not puking your guts out I say go to work. Sometimes just change of scenery and something to do other then thinking of how miserable I am help for a little bit. Oh & drugs, lots of drugs :D

    I couldn't do it. Light was hurting too much. I just woke up again, so we'll see how this evening goes....

    Bean is still sick! Grrrrr. I already took her to the doc yesterday and he said it was an allergen induced irritation of her upper respiratory tract. HOWEVER, today she is crying that her throat hurts and she "lost" the flashlight, so I have no way of looking in there. I had better go and look for it.


    I hate it when my baby is sick!! :_|

    I started getting a sore throat yesterday, and it hurt enough even with those numb-your-throat lozenges that I was semi-aware of it all night. Bah. I don't want to get sick. :( Hopefully it's just a cold that I can fight off quickly.

    My ringing ears have moved from the center back of my brain to the right ear, back to the left, then both now it's at the top of my brain, kind of like a tickle. Just won't GO AWAY!!!!!
