48+ Hour Flu

I've got a nasty flu bug.

It started Saturday with this little annoying cough. By Saturday night I knew I was in for it. I've got a fever, chills, body aches and pains, sore throat, cough with sputum (ewwwwww), nausea and occasional vomitting (mostly in the middle of the night).

I stayed in bed from 7 pm Saturday until 9:30 am today at which time Gaupo had to go to work. Vanessa doesn't work on Mondays, so it's been a little rough around here today. Especially since Guapo had to travel this afternoon. I really don't think it's fair that moms get sick.

But, the kids are in bed now and that's where I'm headed.

I'll be back hopefully in a couple of days.

Tchau.

Get well soon Gabby! Puking stinks!

Ella said...

Yes, Gabby get well soon:) You know the drill with illness I'm sure. I hope your kids play nice and quite so you don't get sicker. It's so sad when you don't feel well. Eat some chicken soup, that will help.

Best Wishes,

Ella

Ugh! So true and unfair, moms are not allowed to just lay in bed when they are sick! (But here's some unsolicited advice: DO IT ANYWAY... :) )

You're awesome. Get better quick!

Moms should get a special pass from illnesses. It is just torture being sick and trying to keep up with the kids. I'm glad you were able to rest during the weekend. Get better soon!

utmommy said...

So sorry. I hate being sick.

Being a mom and being sick, don't work well together. Hope you get better soon.

Dear Gabs,

I hope you are feeling better and the kids didn´t catch this bug that is going around here. I got it last week and I have a few co-workers at home, feeling really bad (and it is not dengue).

Oh, how awful! I assume you are feeling much better now. I agree--it's the worst when mom gets sick.

Gabs,

I just read your list of things to buy in US. About the brown sugar, you can find it here. Look for a├žucar mascavo at the supermarket. It is the same.
