I'm sick

I have cedar fever. I guess if you're allergic to cedar pollen, you shouldn't live near Cedar Park. For the past few days, my allergies would kick in, I'd take some meds & I'd make it throught the day without any problem. Last night we went out for dinner. I had started coughing earlier in the day & continued to take my allergy meds. I hacked through the meal, I could barely taste anything. At home we watched a movie & I blew my nose the entire time. I had a tissue mountain by the end of the movie. I didn't sleep well, Ethan was up twice. When we got up for the day around 7:30, I was still hacking & achy. I went into work for a few hours but left after lunch, I was so miserable. I had a fever of 100.4. Ethan's fine. I took his temp, yes, rectally. I was so glad he cooperated for that.

I'm trying to get some rest, not exactly easy when Ethan depends on me. DH may work from home tomorrow to help out.

BTW, the movie we watched - " Six Pack" with Kenny Rogers, a young Diane Lane and an even younger Anthony Michael Hall. Classic!!

Edited to add: I spoke too soon. Ethan is so congested. Last night he went to bed at 10:30, woke up screaming at 12, 1:15, 2:30, 3:45. At 3:45, I brought his swing into the nursery so he could sleep upright. I slept on the the guest bed in the nursery. At 6 he woke up again. DH took over then. We read about saline drops, squirted those up his noe & fed him. He & I slept for 3 hours. It's gonna be a long day.

Sorry about the allergies, that stinks.

Andy is officially way too big. He's in the 95% for weight and height now. The bad news is that his head is to flat and he got a referral for a neurocranial something or other. Basically they will evaluate him and see if he has to wear those helmets. I'm upset, but as long as it doesn't affect him, I'm ok with it. I did some research on them and apparently you have to wear them for 23 hours a day!!! Fingers crossed that he doesn't have to.

I haven't seen that movie in so long! I live Diane Lane, she's beautiful.

I hope you start feeling better soon, it's no fun being sick :-(

Poor Andy. I hope doesn't have to wear a helmet. : (

In agreement....hope Andy doesn't have to go through that. Or Monica either.

Sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. I've been "nursing" a sick husband for days now. I think it's allergies, too....which he has never had before. He is so miserable. I feel your pain.

Get to feeling better!!
