Sore and Sick

This might the the weirdest last few days I have ever had...well, you could even include the last week.  Last weekend I felt like I had a cold, I had a runny nose and had chills but then also had a fever and ended up with mastitis.  I've been on antibiotics all week...then on Friday morning I slipped at the bottom of the stairs and fell.  I'm really thankful I only hurt my MCL, which is the ligament on the inside of my knee...but I did still hurt my knee and walking, sitting down, standing up is not fun right now.  My shoulder hurts form the fall, too.  Saturday night I got a little tickle in my throat and then woke up to another runny nose and sore throat.  Here's the best part though, this morning I decided to stay home just to really let myself get better.  The second I made the decision, Jordan came downstairs and threw up at my feet.  Great.  I thought maybe he was just sick and would feel better after he got it out of his system, but no such luck.  He's been throwing up on and off all morning.  He's sleeping now.  He's definitely sick...he's sleeping during the day. My poor baby.
It's not fun being sick, but I feel good knowing I'm home with him and comforting him while he's sick.  I know when I'm sick the only thing I want is someone to sit with me and hug me.  I've definitely been able to get lots of snuggles in with Jordan today.  Poor baby.  He's so sweet.
I've been working some on a new eehee (blanket) for him, too.  My mom has made most of his eehees, except for one.  He wanted a blue one and I wanted to try to crochet something more than a coaster so I'm working on it for him.  I can't wait for it to be done...although it's kind of slow going!  What makes you feel better when you are sick?

Awww I'm sorry to hear you're both so under the weather! :( I'm glad you got to take some time off and get better yourself and look after him too. I remember when I was little and home sick I always wished my parents could stay home too. When I'm sick, bundling in a big duvet on the couch helps, and either reading or watching mindless TV shows like "Say Yes to the Dress" marathons. And tea!

Feel better soon! <3

Mastitis is the worst. THE WORST!!!! I think having mastitis is worse than going through labor. No joke.

It sounds like you've been through the ringer! I'm so sorry. I hope you all get feeling better NOW!

I love how you use your time at home still being so productive.

When I was little and sick I just wanted my mom to take care of me, now I just want Mike to. Doesn't so much happen. :(

Stumbled upon your blog via someone else's and I enjoy reading a long. Thought I'd comment today. This time of the year is so tough with getting sick :( It seems like you are finding a way to at least not think about it as much--cheers to that. I always love to snuggle up to a good movie and a cup of warm anything (Coffee-tea) anything, just to keep myself relaxed. The blanket making sounds like a good choice though too. Feel better there.

Aww Poor Jordie :( I hope you two are feeling better. Aww, not fun throwing up :/ that's the first time he has thrown up, right? Get well soon!

I hope you are both feeling better VERY soon. Liam was sick with a high fever last week. The only thing that helped was having me hold him. All day long. I felt like I had a newborn again. (Well, a very large 30 lb newborn...) Get well soon!

So sorry you are all so sick! I can't believe you fell and hurt yourself too on top of all this. When I am sick I just like to sit and watch TV. And read.
