Blech. Erp. Hurl.

I am so sick right now that I don't think I'm going to make it to the end of this sentence without hurling.  Erp.  Whew, that was a dry one.  I can't remember ever feeling this bad, although I'm sure that I have.  I vaguely remember telling at least one of the imaginary people that I was hallucinating last night to shoot me in the head.  I had just finished watching the season finale of Mad Men so I think one of them was Don Draper.  Bastard has no morals but wouldn't do it.  

I'm just praying that Audrey doesn't catch this.  We are usually pretty good about staggering our illnesses, so I've never had to clean up her puke while puking myself.  But there's a first time for everything.  She doesn't understand so she keeps hanging all over me and loving me up as usual, and I'm trying to tell her that I don't want her to catch my flu...plus it really doesn't feel good to have her wrapped around my neck right now.

I have a weekly visual schedule for her, and in my stupor I'd forgotten to change it for this week so it still showed that she had Monday off.  After spending all day hoping and praying that Audrey didn't catch this so that she could go to school today, I had to talk her down from the ledge when she realized that today wasn't a holiday after all.  Audrey is the only person in the world that would actually choose to be with me today.

  8. Not fun or fair.
    When I'm that sick I don't even let the kids in my room. Mom's not home. Sitters or other parental unit has to take over. Of course when I'm well again the house is unrecognizable, but at least I got some sleep and to watch a whole season of Dexter with out a child walking in the room and being scarred for life after seeing Dex slicing another one up.
    Feel better!!!!!!

  9. Oh. No. Hope you recover quickly and that you keep those germs to yourself. Having a sick kid is definitely worse than being sick yourself.

  11. I hope your health returns soon.

    I wrote a post Feb. 20th called "Inconvenient Sick" which is what mothers get because they can't be "Real sick" or who will hold down the fort?

    Get well soon!

  12. Oh no, feel better soon! I hope Audrey doesn't catch it, or at least that she has the good timing to get it after you are well.

  13. Okay, I tried to do this from my phone yesterday. You can see that didn't work out too well. Yeah, I do not heart Don Draper either. What a prig. You know he only dropped Dr. What's Her Name because she knew his secrets. Foolish man - does he know nothing of a woman's scorn? That must have been something watching that cluster eff unfold through the fog of the flu! And dude, totally give you props for blogging through the flu, by the way. Now that's dedication. Seriously, I hope you get to feeling better soon and that Audrey doesn't get the crud.

  14. We've got the opposite issue here; Boo is hacking up a lung and the husband and I are trying very hard not to catch whatever he's got. Difficult to keep germs in their original victim when kids are hanging all over you, I admit. My hands are starting to peel from the number of times I've washed them.

    Hope the hurling stops soon, or alternatively I hope you can convince Draper to put you out of your misery. Good luck with that: no one's ever been kind enough to end me when GI bugs make me wish for death...you just can't find good help these days.

  15. Did you make your visual schedule? I thought about starting one of those for my son, to help him start to understand the concept of time.

  16. Thanks for all the good wishes! I'm still pretty down and out, but thankfully Audrey hasn't caught this yet.

    @Statia: I did make my own visual schedule. Ours is for a week at a time, and there is a dry erase board version that is sold at some Targets and office supply stores that shows Mon through Sun on it (it's a long skinny rectangular board) and then a stuck velcro on it and laminated my own icons...either pictures of the therapists or of her school, and some PECS symbols for one-off things like parties, dentist, doctor, haircuts, piano, etc.
