You're next...

I'm feeling better for the most part; not 100% better, but I'm on the way.

Not so much for James; it hit him around lunch time today. I would also like to add that even though I love him very much, he's such a big baby when he's sick! I know, I know, he can't help it...

...or Drew; he also has it now and has probably shared it with the Richardson and Nichols clan. Chris needs to watch out too. I've heard reports that he's already had the virus, but he personally hasn't confirmed it yet.

It's not a pleasant virus. You may be next! Wash those hands.

It's coming to get you!

This nasty stomach virus is serious business! It's coming after you! Hide (and sanitize) while you still can. After Matthew came down with it Tuesday night, I thought I would be in the clear. I must commend my white blood cells (they're currently under attack by Adam and Niki, as well as the virus); they usually take care of me. I get exposed to so much nasty junk at work, no pun intented, that it would blow your mind and I never get sick.

That just goes to show you what kind of virus this is. If my white blood cells can't defend me from it, then no one is safe. I've lost 7.2 pounds in 28 hours.

Also worth mentioning, because of the aforementioned virus, it seems that we won't be traveling to the Relient K and Switchfoot concert in Mobile tomorrow night. Bummer. No Mommy and Daddy trip just yet.

Later... and don't forget to wash your hands and keep yourself sanitized! It really is coming after you, especially if you've been anywhere near us.

Bronchitis, that is. For those not in any kind of medical field, 466.0 is the ICD9 code for bronchitis. It seems that 466.0 is the culprit for my Matthew coughing all night long and sounding like an irate rhinoceros. At least we finally know that we're not just being paranoid and that there really was cause for concern. We'll give the antibiotic and the albuterol some time to work. I feel like he'll be fine by Monday.

Because of this 466.0, I've watched way too much tv in the last few days! Lot's of Playhouse Disney (Matthew's fav), lots of Discovery Health, lots of Noggn, lots of ABC Family, and TONS of Food Network on demand.

Anyway, believe it or not, I'll actually be glad to get back to work Monday. Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather be with my little man, but I hate going back to work after I've been out. I feel like it takes me two weeks to catch up from being out. I'd rather just get everyone's mess cleaned up from when I was gone and get it over with. Anyhow...I guess that's it for now. COA heads out for their show in Tennessee in just a few hours; I guess I need to make sure they're good to go.


Grrrr! I was almost finished and I mistakenly closed the tab before I posted it!
The summary: We're alive, we've just been busy chasing Matthew around and watching VeggieTales SingAlongs. Also, especially since I just lost everything I wrote, I will choose not to go into detail about a certain Iranian dictator and my thoughts on his visit to my country. I will also decline to comment on the Jena Six controversy, but that doesn't mean I'm not paying attention.

I'm also trying to stop saying "sucks" and "freakin'." The mom in me doesn't want those to be Matthew's first words. Something along the lines of "applesauce" or "ducky" would be more appropriate. Let's see...what else... I guess that's it for now. I've got more laundry to do before I go to bed.

PS: I think we're almost out of the Anti-Narnia, emotionally and literally speaking.
