And we all fall down

This week has been a peach. I started the week out by starting up some medication that I had been prescribed a few weeks back - but just kept putting off. WELL, what do you know - I have a reaction to the stuff - nauseous beyond belief, dizzy, slurred speech, burning sensation in my head and veins. Yucky, yucky stuff. Called the doctors office and they have me needlessly go into the ER because, they tell me, these were not listed side effects! Listed or not - the only thing that had changed in my world was this prescription. I have never taken anything on a regular basis and was willing to try this out to deal with...well let's just say some personal issues...and well that will teach me won't it?

So after about 3 days of feeling really bad, waiting for the stuff to leave my system. Hubby has a sleepness night of - some nasty stomach bug - meaning so did I, and in the wee hours of the morning I start feeling the same. Except, of course, I'm a woman - so I don't stay home to ride it out, I GO TO WORK! Yes, I'm insane.

About 3 hours in - and it's just worse, so I head home and thank goodness because then it got really bad.

Girlie 1 started her awful experience with this bug last night. Very messy, and mom and dad still not fully recovered made it all the more horrible for us all.

Baby boy has had a mild version of it all week - but he had a rough night too - kept waking up abruptly crying. Poor boy.

The last one standing is Girlie 2. Let's all say a prayer for Girlie 2. Maybe she'll be the one to escape it.

  1. 2 girls and 1 boy? Same here.

    Add that one to the list, too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, because through that I've found yours. I'll be back!
