You make me sick...

Oh this weekend has been rough! Q tested positive for swine flu...yep, my baby is absolutely sick...and mommy isn't much better. Well I don't think I have swine flu, but I have a orris cough that has pretty much taken my voice and a nose that won't stop running...but Q has it much worse. She is so lethargic, tired all the time-yet can't sleep more than a couple hours at a time. Can barely breath through the crap congesting her nose and throat, extraordinarily high fevers, only helped by nakedness or a soothing bath, and a wicked cough that must be pretty painful since she cries everytime. I try to get her to eat and drink a little bit, but I don't think she's getting enough food or water. My poor baby. She is miserable, and there isn't much I can do...I hate this feeling.
Emily has been a champ roommate taking care of us both when she can, which has been great...hopefully she doesn't get sick too!

Keep your head up! I know it's been a rough weekend, and I'm sorry about that. Love you both...and Emily for being so great as well.

I hope it is passing now! Sick babies can be so frightening, especially when it feels like they aren't getting what they need, air, food and water. Poor Q, and poor you! Thank goodness for Emily!

Man, it's seems like everyone is getting sick lately. Kaiya has had only 5 kids at preschool lately and today preschool was canceled because her teacher's family got the swine flu.

I hope you are both feeling better.
