Health Updates

Today I am extremely grateful for antibiotics. Those things whipped Whitney right into shape. I couldn't believe how quickly she was back to her normal, happy self. Yippee! I kept Brandon home from school Monday and the three of us didn't leave the house. It was one of those LONG days when I looked at the clock around 11:30 and wondered if I was going to make it until Andrew got home at 5:45. It was close, but I survived.

On Tuesday, B went back to school, but W decided she wasn't ready yet. Despite the Dr.'s green light, she stayed home with me. She sounds great today. (Darth Vader has left the building, much to Brandon's dismay.)

Then last night Andrew came home from work and said, "I'm getting sick." He's the one that sounds bad this morning. Not quite Darth Vader-ish....yet. He's home from work and taking conference calls and answering e-mails here.

My nausea and fatigue are still bad, so we are quite the parenting duo right now. You want another cupcake? Sure. Want to watch another movie? No problem. A month of bad parenting won't have any LONG term effects, will it?

Awwww. Sucks that Andrew is sick now too. If you guys need some relief from the kids, let me know and we would be happy to take them off your hands for a while. As long as they are completely free of all illness :). Hope he starts feeling better soon.

I'm glad Whit's feeling better. It's so hard to be a parent and feel sick though. A month (or two - until the nausea is gone) of "relaxed" parenting won't have any long term effects. (-:

Any excuse you can use for watching another movie sounds good to me.

Somehow I think your children will make it through the cupcakes and movies...and probably like it:)

Boy, we go to New York and I miss five blog posts from you. Great fun for me to get back to them - Dennis watches all his tivo'd shows, and I catch up on the blogs.

Loved the another problem. My parenting skills when I was at my peak were pretty much the way you're describing yours at the height of morning sickness. I remember lying on the couch and watching the dust collect on my glass coffee table and feeling helpless to do anything about it. You'll be out of the woods soon though and then hurrah! You wake up one morning and you're back to your old self and you really do feel grateful for days and weeks on end.

Love you all - hope you're feeling better soon. Have you read about some guy's UTube about "Chad Vader" who is Darth Vader's brother who can't get a date and works at a grocery store? It sounded exactly like something Andrew would write.
