Strep Hell

Tim and I have been lethargic couch potatoes since Hillary and Anne left. Not by choice (they didn't wear us out that bad!) --but rather by a bug known as Strep Throat. Tim's is also showing up as Scarlet Fever. I don't think I've been this sick in the last 5 years!! I've had a tonne of sicknesses growing up - from Bronchitis to Pneumonia, Ear Infections to Mono.....but this one kills. I haven't eaten since Friday -- I'm starving. But everything hurts so much going down I'd rather have a growling stomach. My glands are so swollen in my neck that I can't move my head. We finally went into Emerg yesterday and got some drugs....so hopefully it will be cleared up soon!

Until then -- I'll be on the couch.......

:( sorry to hear you guys are feeling sick. kaeden has a bit of a fever today (but otherwise feeling/acting okay), and i'm hoping it's not going to develop into anything else. the stomach flu is going around the kindergarten classes at kaeden's school :(

strep throat seems to be kurt's sickness of choice.. whenever he's sick, it's strep. so painful!!! :(

Jessica, I had strep a few weeks ago and missed 3 days of work. That's not like me to miss work, Don't you just wanna curl up and die? That's how I felt. Hope you and Time are on the road to recovery
