Sickness strikes again

Hello All,
Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was a mess. I've been terribly sick since Friday morning; fever, chills, a cough that won't stop, and exhaustion. It's been bad, but thankfully we have Gabe's family here and they helped sooooooo much with watching Maddie while I rested. It's almost like I've been out of town or something because for the past 3 days, Maddie's woken up and Gabe's taken her to his mom's and then brought her home when it's time for bed. It's been so strange. But it's also allowed me the time I needed to feel better and today I feel pretty much back to normal except for my cough. But, that's so much better than when I thought I was dying on Saturday. Gabe and I have been saying that we've never been so sick in one year as we have this year. And, of course, this is the first year either of us got the flu shot. We were strongly advised to get it because we have a little one in the house. Who knows what we'll decide next year. It's too hard to be this sick though. So, today is freezing and Maddie and I are going to lay low. We have a home alarm guy coming at 1pm; we're getting a home alarm system because of my paranoia :) and that's all we have planned. I'll write again when I feel better.

Sorry you have been so sick, again! Glad that you are on the mend! Are you getting enough sleep or super stressed lately? That always make you more susceptible (sp?) to icky stuff. What's with the paranoia, you are funny. Hopefully a house alarm will ease it a bit- I know I'd feel better with one too! Well, let's talk this week for sure, cuz it is going to get even crazier for us leading up to the closing and move! Miss you guys and can't wait to have you over to our new place in a couple weeks. Love ya, Lex

Oh Sarah, sorry you have been so sick. I am interested in why you are paranoid and need a home alarm. Not that I disagree but just interested in your thought process. Anyway hope you all feel better!

Thanks for the comments girls. Lex, I'm not stressed, but tired, yes. Not sure why we can't seem to beat any bug that we're introduced to, but that's the way it is. Let's talk soon. Lizzy, I'll talk to you and let you know why I want an alarm, but let's just say I have an active imagination :)

Thanks Siobhan. We're up and moving today, but my cough is so bad that we're not going to Gymboree. I'm thinking that tomorrow's open gym would be fun, so let me know :) I can only take so much more Elmo!!!
