Sicker than a dog

I spent a good 4 hours in the ER this morning. Last week my children had fevers ranging from 102- 104. I cuddled them and reassured them with, "I know, I know. You'll get better soon," and regular doses of Tylenol and Motrin.

Last night, or rather this morning, I woke up at 3:30 a.m. with a fever of 104.5. I thought I was going to die- my whole body ached so bad. I hacked and coughed and tried not to pee my pants. (These things happen you know when you're carrying twins and have had four previous deliveries.)

Anyways, not to bore you with another looooong less-than-exciting post, the ER results: Influenza and Bronchitis.

My cute friend Jen just called to inform me that the sister watching my three youngest kids called and said, "Ham just woke up from his nap with a high fever and threw up." Poor Ham. I bet he has Influenza on top of a double ear infection.

One day I'll actually post my cloth diaper post. But it won't be today or tomorrow. I need a nap.

I don't usually comment... but I had to say I will be praying for you today!!!

You poor thing. I'm sorry. I hope you get feeling better soon.

Ohhhhh Nikki! Many (((Hugs))) and prayers for you all. I'm so glad you've got someone to watch the kids, germs and all.

Nikki! I am sooooo sorry this is happening. Once when my 3rd was a newborn, my husband went out of town and I got super sick with a bad sinus infection. It was the pits!

I hope your husband will pamper you when he gets home. I wish I could fix you a big ol' pot of chicken and dumplin's!

Take care of yourself as best you can.

Oh dear.There's a phrase in Portuguese that comes to mind - "ninguem merece." It means "no one deserves this."

And you certainly don't!
