I have been sick. I guess after cleaning up after Brock on Saturday night... I expose myself and fell sick on Sunday night. I am not talking about just any stomach bug... I mean... I am seriously comparing this to the 14 hours I went without the epidural during my daughter's labor (I got the epidural and enjoyed 10 more hours of labor comfortably before she was delivered) - the vomiting, the cramps... it was THAT bad. Several times my stomach seized up into a tight knot and I was unable to breathe for a second or two. It was AWFUL. I stopped needing the potty around 1 am only to have such severe leg and stomach cramps that I could not sleep. I finally got to sleep about 7am on Monday morning, only to have my carpool call around 7:30 am to tell me her son was sick too. Needless to say, no one was leaving my house.
Brock was feeling better but I stayed in bed. Kiera came down with it Monday evening but again was fine this morning. I was happy that I decided to keep her home from school on Monday so she did not expose anyone in her class to it... not to mention her teacher who is expecting and due any minutes now. So we were all home again today.
It is strange because both children recovered in 12 hours, but I am still not 100%. Why is that? I am in the best shape of my life... but this stomach thing really kicked me... HARD! I finally made it down stairs today around 5pm to eat "dinner" with the family. I am extremely light headed so I am drinking tons of water and eating small amounts of food.
I am feeling better and hope to be back in the swing of things by tomorrow.
Lyle - my AWESOME husband has taken care of us all. He has been sooooo patient and so kind to us all. He even put Kiera's hair up when she was vomiting..... it was so sweet - not to mention a necessity. I am so thankful he stayed home again today so I could recover. He helped me by doing laundry... tons of it and started the SANITATION process. I just gave everything another once over with the Lysol wipes and scrubbed the bathrooms.
I do not wish this on anyone. I hope everyone is healthy and ask that you pray for Lyle - that he stays healthy. I am not sure when I will get out a run again. My plan is to walk tomorrow afternoon and see how I feel. The weather is supposed to be awesome the rest of the week and I hope I am able to get some miles in.
I miss all of my bloggy friends and promise to catch up on your posts. And thanks for all of the well wishes after my Sunday post. I guess I was just destined to get sick and we RARELY get sick in this house.
