Vicky, I hope things are going better with Hero. That's rough, I'm sure it's so much harder to let her CC when she's older. Poor kid!!
Sassy, hope you're doing okay. Nato is right, all your kids need is a healthy happy mom to give them lots of loving.
Sparkly, I'm so excited about your little twinnies! It's about time this finally happening for you.
Hearty, how are things going with D? Did you try the OJ and water? My doc said to go ahead with prunes or prune/apple juice. Bryce is constipated today and I tried the juice...still waiting for it to kick in.
AFM, things have been rough here. Maddy got the flu a week ago, then I got it, then Bryce got it then Maddy got the stomach flu this past weekened. Both Bryce and I have colds still and NOBODY is getting any sleep!! I freaked out when Bryce got the flu, his fever was above 39 degrees and his breathing was fast, so we ended up at the urgent care unit on Wednesday night, turned out okay, but holy crap did it ever freak me out. On top of that hubby is still dealing with his anxiety issues and the drugs are taking a huge toll on him. I feel like we're all barely hanging on!! Oh and I got a grand total of 3 hours of sleep last night...in 40 minute intervals!!
oh round, I hope you all get over the sickness soon and can get some sleep
Yesterday, a guy I grew up with for over 20 years passed away in his sleep. He was only 29!! He left behind his high school sweetheart and 2 children (5 and 20 months). It's still so unreal that this happened. Autopsy results should be in on Wednesday, and then hopefully this gives everyone some peace. Life is just so unfair. It seems so much worse since we all grew up together, and we still live in the same town together. This is also my boss' son in law. This hasn't been a great start to the year for some.....another man's wife just passed away on Wednesday as well. He works for the same company as me, but I didn't know him personally. He got home from work to find his wife dead. How tragic. I really can't imagine how these people feel
On another note, I am still sick. I am getting worried about baby as I haven't been able to eat properly, drinking as much fluids as I can but that's not always much, coughing fits are causing me to vomit, coughing up phlegm, and continuously blowing my nose (which is still stuffed up). I just want this to end!!
Round, I'm so sorry, that sounds awful! I just looked up 39 C in F and it's 102.2...I don't think that's overly high for a baby? Definitely high and certainly sick, but not worrisomely high I don't think. He must have felt awful, though. The breathing would have freaked me out too, what did the doc say? Oh and I feel for Maddy because I got the stomach flu after the flu as well. Bleh. I hope you all feel better VERY VERY soon. What meds did your hubby get put on?
OMG Mel, that's shocking!! That's such a scary thing to happen to a 29 year old. I'm nearly that age and I just never think about things like that happening to young people, Accidents and stuff, but not just dying in your sleep. No history of illness? I hope the autopsy brings everyone some peace. I feel so bad for your coworker as well.
Oh, and I hope you feel better soon. Have you been to the doctors to see if they can give you anything?
Thanks Allie. I went to the clinic this morning, and I have bronchitis like I suspected. On antibiotics, and it's already helping lots! Thank God!
I am still in disbelief over it. He was completely fine on Saturday. The only additional things I have heard is that it was 7:30 yesterday morning. Lonnie heard Ryan making strange noises and she called 911. I believe he was dead before they got there. There is no illness, but past drug use. Wondering if that has something to do with it at all?! Some people said he has been clean for a couple years, but others say he was still using hard. I hope the autopsy comes through quickly so they can all have peace. I keep wondering too if it was an anuerysm or something like that?! I am 31 and I don't think of that stuff either. Time to get our will in place and ask my parents to be the kids' gaurdian!!!
Mel, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. That's so scary, really puts things into perspective how fragile life can be.
Allie, his fever was at 39.5 at it's highest, they say to take them to see a doctor if it gets higher than 39.3. The doc didn't say much, just that his breathing was fast and to keep an eye on it. He's totally fine now, he rebounded faster than anybody. Poor you with flu and stomach flu. It's a brutal flu season here.
My hubby is on zoloft...it's his 3rd week and still not really seeing much improvement. He's getting lots of side effects nausea, headaches, insomonia...not much relief though.
