Happy Valentine's Day
It's been a rough day for the Wheawills. I had a really bad night. I was awake from 1am until about 4:15. Theres not much to do at that hour as I watched tv on the couch. I still didn't sleep good and woke up about 5:15 and got up from the couch to move back upstairs and slept until 6. Then on my way to work, I spilled my water all over me and my car. Wonderful!! I don't know why I'm not sleeping. I think it may be a combination of things: pregnancy symptoms and then it feels like I've recently had a lot on my mind right before bed and had trouble turning off my brain.
As it turns out, Matt's "little cold" that I referred to in my last blog is really doing a number on my sweet husband. He was feeling much worse today so had to leave work early. :-( I told him to take some cough syrup and a claritin. I became more concerned when told me that he was having chills and then hot the next minute but didn't think he was running a fever. I told him it sure did sound like he was. Sure enough, he definitely had a fever when I got home. He was burning up. He sounds pretty bad with a cough and congestion. I don't think it's the flu but we'll see. So, being the pharmacist, I gave him some tylenol and told him to take more of the cough syrup.
We are both calling it a day and going to bed early. Since I really don't want to take any chances and have already been sick once this year, I'm in the guest room tonight and he will sleep in the bedroom. It's been a rough Valentine's Day, but we hope that tomorrow will be much better!
On the up side: I did run by the hospital tonight and got to see my friend Christie and her sweet little baby girl, Madeline. Madeline has a head full of hair and is a very cute baby. They both seem to be doing really well! :-)
