Not Dead (Undead?)

I haven't disappeared. I've just been hiding in my house trying not to die for the past week. Noah got a cold and was home sick for three days so I was trying to take care of the little one and partially take care of him. This resulted in colds for me and the baby. Mine is on a scale of massive proportions. Sore throat for three days. That disappeared. Fully congested head and lungs took its place only to be joined by rib-bruising coughing. Yay. I'm finally on the mend and have my voice (kind of ) back. And I'll just say that having a baby with a cold while you are sick as well sucks major ass. The only good thing was that while I had a full day of fever and chills she slept the whole day and only woke up to be changed and to eat. That's my girl. Oh, and there will be knitting posted soon.


  1. Ha, "undead" *grin* So glad you're feeling better!

  2. I hope you feel better soon!

    I wanted to let you know that I'm finally reading Under the Banner of Heaven because you guys talked about it on Doubleknit - I had avoided it for years because I was afraid it would be too disturbing. It is, but it's also fascinating.

  3. I am with you on the idea that it is no fair being sick when you have a sick child. Worse time I can remember is when three of my children had the flu and so did I (...and I was 7 months pregnant). We all lay upon the bed with me patting them--except for periods when we moved to the bathroom as a group. We all survived...they are adults now. So there is hope! Feel better.

  4. I hope you are feeling better today! That sounds tough. :(
