Three Down

So when your coworkers make the sign of the cross behind you as you're staggering out the door to your car... that's a bad thing, right?

I went in this morning thinking I'd be okay; I just felt crummy because of allergies, PMS, and a relatively sleepless night.

Uh-huh. Riiiiight.

I really didn't want the children's Swine Flu Powers -- they didn't have to share.


Angel and Jenn, thanks for the kind words. The Gum Zombie seems to be following in his elder brother's footsteps with this illness and that's a good thing. This H1N1 is so frustrating because on the one hand (like Jenn said) they hype this SO much, but on the other hand you read that the majority of the cases are really mild; it's just in those few instances of folks with underlying conditions that we hear about.

And THEN you hear from your mother that one of her friends was diagnosed with H1N1 and her doctor's office told her that she must have a super mild case of it because she walked in under her own steam, and most folks were in so much pain that they weren't able to walk.

I give up. I'll never understand this thing.


So anyway, I'm down for the count.

The Elder is back at school.

The Gum Zombie's still running a fever but downed two corndogs for lunch.

Choreboy alone remains standing.

Stay tuned for the next installment of "As the Swine Turns."

I've opted not to catch the swine flu. I am perfectly content to experience it vicariously through the rest of the family. I guess Amanda decided to try it just because. Like when someone says "Aaargghh! This stinks! Smell it!" and you do. Me? I'm not above utilizing someone else's experience:)

Jenn said...

OH NO, Amanda!!! Please take care of yourself!!! Choreboy, I hope you're up to the challenge!!! And I hope you keep dousing yourself in Purell!

Angel said...

((((HUGS))))) Oh sweetie I'm so sorry!!!

JB has been praying earnestly every night, and we'll keep praying til you're all well!!!

I'm up to the challenge Jenn. I was taught to fetch, clean, and even cook when necessary. She made sure that I was well trained before she purchased me:)
