Man, have I been sick! It started Wednesday night, I went to be feeling a little more tired than usual, that aching kind of tired, but I slept well enough. In the morning, I had a low grade fever and body aches. It was still manageable with a little ibuprofen and coffee, though. By Thursday evening, I was in pain and my fever was rising, so once the kids were in bed, so was I. I shivered and shook all night, terrible muscle and joint aches, a massive headache, night sweats and chills. It was awful. When Josh's alarm when off on Friday morning I asked him to take the day off (which I don't think I've ever done). He stayed home and took care of the kids and I spent the entire day in an unconscious, feverish haze. I was really incapacitated and I can't remember the last time I was this kind of sick. I lost an entire day! By Saturday, I finally felt well enough to get out of bed for small periods of time and this morning I feel ALMOST back to normal. Whatever it was, I do not recommend trying it! I really had no other symptoms, no runny nose or congestion, no cough, no GI symptoms, no sore throat...just the fever and pain. I'd take a round of strep over that any day.
Of course, KayTar started running fever yesterday, so I'm really hoping that if it is the same thing, it doesn't hit her as hard as it hit me. It was rough! She and I will be sitting out of the Easter festivities today, but the boys will bring up lots of goodies to ease our pain.
Hope you are all having a very happy (and healthy) Easter today!
