Sick day

I have been really sick. Apparently when I got the flu last month I never took the time to really get over it, which results in the original flu making way for a mean and nasty bacteria called "second sickness flu" which is what I have. Apparently the best way to get over this is to sleep, for like 36 hours. All according to my doctor who sent me home yesterday with a cough syrup with a sedative in it that I wasn't to take unless I could sleep at least 8 hours. Hard to do with a baby right?

Not if you have an awesome husband and wonderful neighbors. Trev has cared for Ivie the last three nights, so I could sleep - lucky dog, she has actually slept through the last two nights completely from 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM

Then this morning at 9:00 AM my wonderful neighbor, an adopted grandma of sorts for Ivie, came and picked up the baby and kept her until Trevor came home at 7:00 tonight. She brought Ivie home bathed, with a hair cut and also brought some delicious chicken noodle soup.

I spent the day sleeping. I woke up at 6:00 and missed my family so much! I was so grateful for the day off, and I do feel better tonight. But I was so happy to have everyone come home, even if it was just in time for stories and bed. The best part of my sick day was listening to a happy baby goo as her daddy read "Ten Apples Up On Top."
I am so grateful for good neighbors, good husbands, and hopefully the soon-to-return good health.

I hope you feel great soon! Inquiring minds must ask- was Ivie's haircut solicited or a surprise?

Oh my heavens I was wondering the same thing about the haircut! My MIL cut Meg's hair once without asking and I was SO mad! :)

I'm glad you're on the mend and that you were able to take it easy for a day or 2 to recover!

Haircut wasn't solicited, but it doesn't bother me. :) The one time Trev and I tried to cut Ivie's hair to keep her bangs out of her eyes it was AWFUL! I have no idea how Darci gets her to hold still, but she does a much better job and I figure the kid has a lot of hair. It will always grow back :) She mostly just trims it up out of her eyes and evens it out in the back. This woman is such a blessing in our lives, I am just so grateful for all she does.

Feel Better Soon! We've had a nasty bug here too.. but I think we are getting over it, hopefully we don't keep it! I will make sure to use that excuse and get some extra naps!!

Hope you are feeling better. I am glad that you are getting taken care of! Ivie is so cute peeking out behind the book!
