The Creeping Crud

The boys have been trying to get sick (really sick) since Thursday. It took me 42 hours to get in touch with the peds office. They have been over run with the flu, RSV and the creeping crud. I finally got some antibiotics for the boys. They have green running noses and Tiger is communicating that his head hurts. They are sneezing and coughing to beat the band and Monkey has had a slight temp.

I felt really bad yesterday and last night was worse. By this morning I was begging hubby to put a nail in my head to let off the sinus pressure (Tyneol only does so much good). He went to the pharmacy got a zpac, antibiotics, sudafed and a little yellow pill for drainage. I also have the "green stuff".

The boys and I have maintained the pajamaed look even until now from last night and I feel plain yucky!!!!!! Thank the Lord hubby is not sick. My Mom's brother owns a restaurant in town and my Mom's sister cooks for him on the weekends. She is making us her famous burritos and salads for supper. Hubby has went to pick it up.
On top of everything else my parents have the same thing and my Daddy is really bad. I called his dr and got him started on something for drainage and he is taking Tyneol. Antibiotics are a last resort for him. He is on Coumidin and the antibiotics throw it all (his heart) back out of whack. He has been in bed all day and let's just say he has to be really sick to be there.

I have no appetite and that is a good thing, only craving my Mom's chicken and dumplings. I told her on the phone when we all feel better I'll supply the chicken if she'll mak'em. She said that was a good deal.

Mimi, I will get your info to you tomorrow. I am so sorry. I am just so tired and feel so lousy.

I hope you all have a blessed weekend. Enjoy your health, church, your family and the Super Bowl.

Blessings!!!

Marva I hope that you all feel better soon! That sinus thing is so awful, we keep passing it back and forth here. James is better, but now the rest of us have it.

I hope that you get plenty of rest, big hugs to you all :)

I figured something must be wrong since we hadn't heard from you since Thursday, and I was getting a little worried. I hope that you and the boys start feeling better soon, and that your husband does NOT get it!

Marva said...

Yes, Nikki, I also am praying that hubby stays well. It is bad enough with the rest of us so sick! Blessings!!!!

Praying you all get better soon! I know how you feel about your dad and meds. My DH is on coumidin and can only take certain meds too. It makes it difficult to fix an illness ASAP. Wishing you all well. God Bless!
