A Sick 5 on Friday

This has been a crappy week, hopefully it will get better...
Tuesday night Tim & I were up most of the night with Mason fussing and having a temperature of 102.8 F. We were getting a little nervous, but we got that to come down with a bath and some tylenol.

He went to daycare that morning and I went to work. While in a meeting I started getting chills and not feeling well. I ended up going home at noon. I came home and took a nap. I was woken up by a call from daycare saying that Mason had a temp of 103.6 - eek {mini mommy freak moment}. I called his doctor's office and they fit him right in. She prescribed an antibiotic and told us to keep an eye on him.

This must have been how daycare knew Mason was not feeling well. He only ate "some" of his Ritz crackers. That kid would eat a sleeve of those if we let him.

This is what I had to share my bed with yesterday morning. they took over most of the middle so I had little room.
I woke up with a temp of 101.8 yesterday morning so I called my doctor and got in yesterday afternoon. Has anyone ever gotten a rapid flu test? If you have, I feel your pain! That was awful, but the doctor coming back into the room and telling me I had the flu was worse I think.

On a better note he did say that my weight loss over the last couple years was pretty impressive. I weighed in at 172 lbs on their scale {with clothes on}.
I have decided to take it easy for the next couple days and restart the transition week on Monday. I really want to work out, but I have to let my body rest.

On my way home from the doctor my throat hurt and I was a little bummed about the flu diagnosis so I went and got a vanilla milkshake. It helps make my throat feel better. I have not eaten much that last few days so this is not too bad.
I am feeling ok today so I am sitting in a car seat class all day. If you miss one class you fail the class so I could not really miss it. I did not pay for the class, the rescue squad did so I would feel bad if I dropped out.

I am hoping I can make it until midnight (when I get out of work) before feeling crappy again. Send good thoughts my way, please.
