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.
