My kids have been sick for two weeks now, primarily with colds. Of course, my son always has respiratory complications so he is still sick and on breathing treatments. I knew I would end up sick, but I started thinking I may get through this unscathed when more than a week and a half passed and I still wasn't sick.
Then I woke up Sunday feeling crappy: sore throat, exhausted, sneezing. Full on cold hit today in addition to some type of stomach bug and cold sweats. Ugh. All I really want to do is crawl into bed and sleep the day away. While I am fairly confident that the kids wouldn't kill themselves or others I greatly fear what my house would look like when I finally awoke. So, for that reason I will suffer through the day, awake, and hope that for the first time in more than two months I actually can sleep through the night tonight.
Being sick sucks. Being sick and having to take care of others is downright torture. Can I get an "Amen?"
So, what do you do when you are sick and tired yet have kids to care for?
