the flu

I AM sick!  I have a fever (101.5) and everything.  Chills, headache, achey body, listlesness.  Sigh.  I am really nervous about Ezekiel because Daniel is going out of town early in the morning and I will be all by myself.  I don't know what to do!  Should I take Ezekiel to the doctors to get started on antivirals so he doesn't get sick??  I don't know.  :(  Suggestions please!!!  Thanks guys.

I would say to call your pediatrician and ask them what they think. How old is he again? I'm sure you'll be fine... Lots of fluids, ibuprofen alternated with tylenol, and chicken soup are my presciption! Get well!

yah you can call the doctor but just cover your mouth with a bandana or burp cloth or something! ha. wash your hands a lot and try not to kiss on him too much. it will be ok.
saylor was just sick and gave it to me and colin! we are fighting it. blah!

Oh I hope you get better soon! Have you thought about calling a friend to help out with Ezekiel? I know you don't really send him anywhere without you, but if I was sick and Nathan were out of town, I would be calling in the reinforcements. Sometimes when I get sick and Nathan is at work I pack a basket with everything I might possibly need in it to keep right beside me so that I only have to get up to go to the bathroom. I take about 5 minutes and gathter up sancks for the kids, a pitcher of water or tea and a cup and diapers and wipes and toys and anything else anyone will need so I can just rest without having to get up to constantly to get stuff. Drag the swing and the walker and a blanket over to the couch, get some books, the phone, some fruit...you get the idea. I love you! Feel better soon! Aimee

I just talked to your hubby (you are asleep at 8pm, good!) and told him we will be bugging you tomorrow so you MUST let us help you! If you check this before I call you in the morning, get a list ready for me!
Love, Rachel

I don't have any advice. But I wanted to say that I hope you feel better soon! I think Ezekiel might be protected by the antibodies in breakstmilk still, but I'm not sure when that ends. Good luck!

Thanks guys! It's thursday morning now and after a looong nights sleep I feel mostly better. Still a little weak and achey, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. I think if i rest a lot today I will be %100 by tomorrow. And so far... Ezekiel doesn't have a fever and isn't acting sick.
