Can I tell you my husband rocks?
Our house kinda became the sicky house these past few weeks. When the little’s would get this fever & vomiting virus they would for the most part stay here, away from the other family members who worked in the public. Fortunately it seem to happened on Fridays when Mr. Fix-it was leaving for hunting…in the end there was not a unwashed sheet, blanket, bedspread or towel in the house. My poor laundry room reeked of “o”de puke for a few days. Other than he and I fighting bad colds & living on emergent “c”and thera flu we were fine….and then last week it hit Mr. Fix It. He came home not feeling good (which I can count on one hand in 25 yrs. of marriage) ate a tiny bit and passed out in his chair. Took 3 days for him to feel “right”.
I was sliding right along counting my blessings. Sunday I had a lead ball in my stomach that would not go away and couldn’t eat. Monday I don’t remember much past noon, just being so tired I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I’d started supper & had it in the oven, canning turkey stock with a load in the canner. Next I clearly remember is yesterday morning. He’d finished the stock, and took care of me.
A few things I do remember…running a fever & being cold, bone chilling 5 blankets not enough cold, solving all kinds of world problems, from the economy to pollution, checking on the baby in the middle of the night and kinda freaked out when it was empty till I remembered that was ok…(as our baby is 26 and has babies of her own which is why the playpen was empty). I woke up yesterday sideways in the bed with half the covers on the floor and the rest in a pile in the middle.
Yesterday I felt human & puttered around the house but didn’t push it and ate a very light supper eventually.
Today, I feel wonderful!! I’m hungry… Now I realize how bad I was gradually feeling all last week. We’re still not sure if this was a virus or the “flu” but, I’ve not been that sick in a long time.
Off to strip my bed again, and clean out all these sickie germs!
Stay healthy out there!
