Emily's strep came back on Monday, doctor on Tuesday, she's home until Thursday. Today I picked #2 up from school feeling poorly (I think it's just PMS, honestly) and my throat started hurting. Ugh. The Mr. started back traveling this week, too, so I'm in charge and I just wanna sleeeeeeeep. Fortunately everyone just wants soup for dinner, so I can whip that up without too much difficulty.

Because our insurance is all weird right now, I'm not going to spend $100 for the doctor to tell me what I know, but I am strong like bull and can ride it out. But if anyone wanted to just show up with tea and pho, that would be super. So sleeeeeeepy.

Because my bosses have driven away two more coworkers, one of my friends had to work a day after she got her first dose of Strep meds. I of course worked with her. My throats been sore and dry intermittently, and I've been body-tired for a few days, but I've been braining it away; "You're not sick! You're not sick." Tragically I am weak like new born miniature bunny and if it keeps up I'm hitting the doc's.
Maybe not the best day to be watching The Stand. But I can nap through it!

Ahahaha, no, I'd say this is NOT a good time to watch The Stand. And I ALWAYS end up watching it when I'm hit with the lurgy, too! Oh my god, maybe it's not strep, maybe it's Captain Tripps? If I dream about Oprah playing a banjo, we know it's true.

Right?! It's amazing how whenever I'm super sick, something like The Stand or Kingdom Hospital comes on and I watch it. Somehow knowing I'm not in fact dying makes me feel better.
On the other hand, I take great comfort in knowing that should Captain Tripps happen I'll probably be on the first tier of dead. Being weak like bunny and all. No worries about trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world! That's everyone else's problem.

Poor baby (I mean Emily, she's super adorable so she fills up the sympathy quota first).

Have you thought about trying this new miracle drug combination known as Alka Seltzer Plus and Airborne?

Get better soon, stoney household!

Hahaha, she has been MILKING this for all it's worth, too. Somehow she can manage playing with the animals, but feels sooooooo ill when it's time to feed the dog. Mmm hmm. She's on Proper Medicines, too!

And HA HA. I was just on the phone with the Mr. and he said to take the SAME THING. Lol.

FYI I had to say aloud strong like bull in Russian Accent.

Feel better soon. *tea*

Thank you for saying it in the proper manner. I hope you hit your chest in a way that Celine Dion felt it as you said, "Strong like bull."

(And thank you. Oh, that I had a pot of tea by your hand...)
May. 4th, 2011 10:48 pm (UTC)
Hah! I did, too. I couldn't help myself.
May. 4th, 2011 11:12 pm (UTC)

What kind of soup?
May. 4th, 2011 11:29 pm (UTC)
Bleh. Imma call the dr. tomorrow and see if he'll just write me a scrip - he thought I might get it, too, what with me kissing on those damn germ factories I call children.

Minestrone, mmmm.

Fortunately soup cures all.

Doodle has a stomach virus. I hope he does not give it to me because I do not want. (4 months till he's gone. I cannot wrap my mind around this.)

That's how it started with Em, turns out to be strep - in her gut. FIE!

Ooooh, mama with her empty nest soon! HUGS.

I thought you did, Im sorry :(
May. 5th, 2011 02:51 am (UTC)
No worries! And I've never put my exact town online, so it's understandable that you wouldn't know that. :)

I just got over The Plague myself (upper respiratory, it was "awesome"). I bruised my ribs with the coughing.

Hope all this streppiness passes soon for you guys. I used to get strep a lot as a child, so I know how much it sucks.
May. 5th, 2011 01:15 pm (UTC)
Oh no!! I wish I was close by so I could come with a huge pot of soup and delicious teas and entertain all the little Stonies while you get some sleep! <3333

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
