Sick Weekend

Nicole woke up with a cough on Saturday morning, but we all hoped that it was just a passing thing. Then, Matt started feeling bad on Saturday night and I knew it was spreading.

This sickness was really weird. It started with a cough, then it consisted of aches, fever, and excessive tiredness. No sore throat, no head congestion... weird. Matt was so exhausted Saturday night that he went to take a nap at 6pm and then just didn't wake up until the next morning. He has never done that before. It was weird.

On Sunday, we all woke up with coughs and all hope was lost. Dan and Nicole were grumpous, Matt and I were grumpous and it was unfun. Nicole had a fever of 102.5 degrees and it got kinda scary there for a little while, but by Monday, we were feeling... betterish.

I worked from home on Monday to help out Matt with the kids since I was feeling better and he was not. Which turned out to be a good thing because the kids' coughs were breaking up and kids don't know how to handle that very well. Babies and little kids don't know how to spit or clear their throat, so... Dan and Nicole were throwing up when their coughs started breaking up. It was good to have both Matt and I there. One parent to clean the kid, one parent to clean the mess.

Hopefully, Matt and the kids are feeling a little better today and we are past the gross and the crying and the whining.
