Remember how I complained in my last post about not getting fresh air for 3 days? Well, I guess I should've kept my mouth shut.
Today will be 6 days.
Yes, SIX days trapped inside with not even a hint of fresh air.
I woke up Monday morning with a splitting headache, chills, body aches and a cough. By Monday night I was throwing up. I hate throwing up. (Although with my last 2 pregnancies I threw up nonstop my first trimester - you'd think I'd grown accustomed to it.) So my loving husband was gracious enough to get a substitute for Tuesday so he could stay home and take care of me and the kids (although it meant he had to go into his classroom late that night getting stuff ready and not come home 'til midnight! What a man). By last night I was running a fever of 102.2!
I knew I had a high fever because my eyeballs were hot. Not kidding. It was either my eyeballs or my inner eyelids because every time I closed my eyes, I felt like they were burning up. It wasn't painful, just hot. Have any of you ever had that? I had never felt that before and was certain it was sign of impending death.
However, I woke up this morning - still alive. Although I was drenched in sweat. My fever must've broke last night because this morning I was back to normal. Thank God! Seriously, I prayed a lot last night that I would wake up feeling better because Chad couldn't take another day off of school and I knew I couldn't take care of 3 kids the way I was feeling. So God took pity on me and answered my prayers.
So today is recovery day. After a diet of Saltines and Sprite, my body isn't quite up to par. I feel weak, but SO much better than the past few days.
On a side note, I've been doing some thinking... since my blog name is French, shouldn't my blog have something frenchy about it? So I'm going to add a new addition. Every Friday will be deemed "French Friday" and I will teach my inquisitive, well-rounded audience something "frenchy" so you can go out into the world armed with extremely important French knowledge. Okay, so maybe it won't be very important or useful knowledge, but fun nonetheless.
Are you up for it?
