My week as a single mom has been very trying!!
Last week I ended up with this crud that's going around. My symptoms have mostly been a horrible cough and general exhaustion.
So, Jay left Sunday morning. I had to both teach Sunday School and play piano for church. Alex did pretty good. We then went out to eat after church, Alex slept on the way home and then decided to not finish his nap.
Monday - around 7:00 that evening Alex came over and crawled in my lap. He had a fever - 102. I gave him Motrin, but we had a rough night. Between Alex being restless, the cat wanting in and out, and my coughing, I didn't get to sleep until 3:30 am - and then was up at 5:30!!
Tuesday morning - Alex still had a fever but wasn't showing any other symptoms of anything. I was a bad mommy. I gave him some Motrin and sent him to daycare. I got a phone call at 1:45 that he had a 102 fever. By the time I got to daycare it had gone up to 104. I was able to get into the doctor right away. Ear infection in one ear.
Today - I debated and debated this morning about sending him to daycare so I could go to work. I just couldn't do it! So, I was home again today.
Alex is doing better. In fact, I didn't even have to give him any Motrin before putting him to bed. I hate it when he is sick. He's just not himself!! I wish I could say the same thing about myself. I need to sleep - and I need to take my cough medicine - but I can't do that until Jay gets home. (my cough medicine knocks me out and makes me loopy!!)
Jay is home tomorrow night - and I can't wait!!!
