A Quickie

DUDES.

So, you know how neurotic I am about posting. But get this: kids get sick! I know, right? My champ, Plus One, aged 2 point 5, has become infected for the first time. And if viruses were actually visible with the naked eye, I'd totally get violent on that little bastard. The virus, that is. I don't even CARE if it were "not my size." Though, I am quite small. In the beautiful, skinny sense.

But the KIDS!

:(

People, bloggers, friends. I'll have you know that when I saw that thermometer read 104.7, I did what I always knew I'd do when it counted: I completely choked. Stay calm? Sure, try START SOBBING.

Good news is that some drugs are in fact, good! Wish me the kids luck this weekend. I'll be back (maybe? hopefully!) Monday with this amazing post where I ramble about a dream and turn it into a blockbuster reality show featuring YOU! Well, some of you.

  3. Wow! that is a very high fever. You are well within the acceptable range to legitimately freak the fuck out.
    Hope your youngen gets feeling better.

  4. Good luck honey. I'm sure it'll all be fine - but you're totally entitled to the freak out, I know I would have.

  5. We just went through this. I had to take my wife to the ER because she was running a 103.5 (and rising, she likes to point out) temperature. They gave her some Tylenol, a slap on the ass, and discharge papers.

    First it was Tank who was sick, then me, then the wife, then Cookie. We all had it. It was miserable.

    Now, the fun thing is, whenever one of them coughs in public, you can remind them to cover their mouths so they don't get their swine flu all over the place. Do this a couple of times, and you'll have a full half of the restaurant all to yourself!

  6. UGH! I hate when my kids get sick! HATE IT! I am seriously feeling for you right now. My girls were sick over and over again this winter. Rose had strep throat three times! And a stomach bug and that horrible high fever flu. I seriously thought there was something wrong with her, but the Doc said it was common for some kids. Common my ass! FIX HER!

  7. Beeker: Thanks :) It is pretty much the worst thing I've ever encountered. Once it happens, though, he's immune forever right?!

    Mr. C: Um, no. Robitussin is devil's juice and soda is the gateway drug to beer.

    Jerrod: He's back to screaming at me, so if that's what you meant, he's cured!

    Frankenfinger: Right?! Holy shit, I was pacing like a madwoman, shoving that thermometer in his ear every five minutes.

    Anna: He's getting better already. Talk about feeling helpless. Good thing I breed 'em hardcore.

    TIM: I'd probably be a blob of death, children dueling it out for the cats' food if we'd all been sick. So far (knock on computer?) it's just the one.

    erin: That sounds like hell on earth. I'll be asking for a transfer if that same occurs at my house.
