It has been a long week, and it's going to be another long couple of days, and hopefully things will be back to normal.
Last week, dh started getting his usual allergy issue. Sent him to the doc for his allergy shot since he was going to be working lots of OT for the next 2 weeks. By Saturday night, both of us started having a fever, chills, body ached and coughing like crazy. Sick all day Easter Sunday. Sent dh back to doc on Monday, and he's been put on steroids and antibiotics. I am finally starting to be able to move. lol Still weak and get tired, but I'm at least able to function for the most part. Now both the kids are sick. I have my 3 year old ds playing the role of human space heater while lying on the couch and my 10 year old dd is napping in her room.
Hopefully this will pass sooner rather that later. It's no fun seeing the kids feeling so miserable. They were so sweet trying to take care of both my dh and myself this past weekend. They were very patient and understanding. My dd even tucked me in the past couple of nights. :)
I will say that even while sick I have been sure to track everything I've been eating. I've also made sure to still get my 8 glasses of water a day. I stepped on the scale this morning, and I'm down 4 more pounds. A fever must really burn calories. lol I'm not going to count it, because I'm sure it's not going to remain that way. I'll probably go back up a couple of pounds once I'm back to normal. It sure did give me a nice pick me up this morning though. Needed a good mood boost since all this has started.
