Under the weather

Friday I seemed to have had a cold of some sort. Nothing bad, just a runny nose and an occassional cough. Saturday I woke up with very little voice and a very deep cough. I still felt pretty good though. By Saturday evening I had the body aches, my throat hurt, I was still hoarse and the cough and runny nose just got worse. I couldn't sleep Saturday night from the aching and when I got up on Sunday my throat hurt so bad I could hardly swallow. My dad and Mike went to Mike's dads to do the brakes on his car and I laid around while the girls played nicely (thank goodness!)

When Mike got home we decided it was a good idea for me to go to Immediate Care because at this point I couldn't get off the couch and I knew I had to go to work on Monday. I went and they told me I had an upper respiratory infection. This was good because the way my throat hurt I thought maybe I had strep. I went home and showered. I wanted to get lots of rest Sunday night, but I once again couldn't sleep because of the aching and burning. I went to work for half a day on Monday and then went home and took a nap. Taylor watched TV in my room while Callee and I napped.

Today I feel much better. I still have the cough, runny nose, sore throat, and occassional ear ache, but I don't ache all over. I can handle being sick, but I absolutely hate having the body aches especially when I have to work! I must say in all of this Mike has been as wonderful as always. He took care of the girls, the house, and food. He is so good to me especially when I'm sick.

Enough of the blah stuff...

Shana has been so kind as to pass two awards on to me so I must tell her thank you! I also need to tell her she's crazy. I have gone back and read some entries from before and she gave me the You Cheer Me Up Award, but I complain a lot. I am not sure how I cheer anyone up, but I will take the award, accept it and be grateful.

I am going to pass these awards to two people. Kathy and HRH you get the spread the love award. And as for the You Cheer Me Up Award that goes to Girlymom and Simple Pleasures. I'm not sure how Girlymom can be so positive all the time, but I would love to be like that. Keep on doing it, you cheer me up daily!

Kathy said...

Courtney! Thanks for the Spread the Love Award! You are so sweet. I confess that I have no idea of what to do with it, so please someone educate me on blog award behavior. How do I post the award on my blog? Am I supposed to keep passing it on? And the tag? Do I answer those groups of 4 questions? I'm glad to have you to teach me these things
It is awful you felt so sick. Especially difficult when you have work to do and little ones to tend to. Take care of yourself.

It is no fun being sick, but isn't it great when your kids are being angels
