Still sick

There is an advantage to having sick kids. You suddenly have very cuddly kids.

This was how I spent my evening yesterday. Turner was asleep, and Guthrie fell asleep rather quickly. Excuse my exposed belly - at home I nurse and half the time I forget to cover myself back up.

Somehow, I've managed not to get sick. Eric came down with the stomach bug in the middle of the night last night, but is starting to feel better now - and managed to go into work today! Guthrie never got the stomach ickies. He was running a 103 degree fever off and on, had a runny nose, and just generally was tired and feeling bad, but no major symptoms. He's had this happen once before - high fever, no other real symptoms, over it in a few days.

He spent most of the day on the couch today, watching the Thomas and Friends movies Daddy bought him yesterday at the store.


He's feeling better now, I think. His fever seems to be gone, and he got off the couch to play with his toys for the first time today. The adventure will be getting him to sleep.

At least we got sick before our trip. And maybe I can get some sleep before we leave - with two sick kids, I haven't gotten much at all.

Are you under that pile of kids, Judy? LOL

Hope you get some rest and avoid the crud.

Ha! Yeah, I think I'm in there somewhere.

Somehow I managed not to get sick. Tired - very, very, very tired - but not sick. Everyone else got it, but I'm fine.
