It all began last Sunday night. Lucy got up several times, coughing, complaining that her throat REALLY hurt, feverish, sweating. She ended up in bed with me while Len was booted to the guest room. He ended up getting Kate to school on the train while I stayed home with Lucy who was just as miserable as she could be.
Kate managed to amuse herself with Legos for most of the morning but by the afternoon, she started complaining about not feeling good. Uh oh.
And no kidding, not more than an hour later, I felt like crap. I went to bed not long after the girls and didn't get up until Thursday! Len stayed home Wednesday and Thursday, plying us all with liquids and trying to avoid the germs.
To tell you just how bad it was, Kate willingly went in for a nap on Thursday at 2:30pm and didn't wake up until 7 when Lucy was getting back into bed for the night.
Len needed to get back to work on Friday so we muddled through the day and I collapsed again last night quite early. So a full week of school was missed and I got nothing done in preparation for Thanksgiving or Lucy's birthday. We all seem to be on the mend now with no fevers but we still have coughing and runny noses to contend with. I'm not back to full speed at all and am actually headed for another nap right about...NOW.
