I thought it best to check in. No, I have not gone into labor.
That bug Caitlin had Tuesday night? She decided to share it with us.
Thursday I had an OB appointment. She walked in and and told me I looked pale. It is just a GI bug, so there is not much you can do other than rest and stay hydrated.
Friday morning the Irishman left for work with aches and a slight fever. By lunchtime he'd come home sick and was in bed. Of course, he neglected to take anything for his fever so by 4pm his temperature was 102.4 degrees.
I went to pick up Caitlin from day care and by the time I got home my fever had returned. We were a lovely pair.
Just before midnight the Irishman experienced the vomiting part of this bug. Now I suffer from a touch of emetophobia at the best of times. The doctor said that if I get to the point where I cannot keep down water I have to go to the ER for IV fluids to avoid dehydration. Talk about motivation not to be sick. I was avoiding Morgan for the evening for fear of his germs or reactionary gagging.
I eventually went upstairs to find my husband sprawled out in the middle of our bed, using all but two of the seven pillows on our bed. I'm pretty sure I saw his germs crawling all over the bedroom, so I took the two pillows he hadn't yet infected, changed the cases, and headed downstairs. Once I figured out how to work the pull out bed on the couch, I headed to sleep myself.
This morning before Caitlin got up I wanted to have both of us shower and change into clean PJs. While the Irishman was in the shower I changed the sheets and pillowcases and sprayed everything down with disinfectant spray. I went downstairs to put the sheets in the washer and returned to find Morgan sound asleep...in the middle of the bed on all five pillows.
Thankfully Caitlin slept in a bit this morning and gave me time to get some disinfecting taken care of. At this point we both have headaches and body aches, but no fever. Our stomachs are a bit sensitive, but okay. Since waking up though? Caitlin is running circles around us. I think she has cabin fever.
Christina and June just stopped by. They put Caitlin down for her nap and are going to the store for us. I am waiting for water to boil so I can make some Jello for later. We've had just about all the toast and chicken soup we can stand.
So, nothing fun to report. I have some pictures I'll get to eventually...once we are no longer quarantined!
