Bring out your dead

I have an aversion to doctors of any sort, so I must be feeling really horrible if I'm considering schleping myself to my primary care doctor. This sickness, it's kicking my heiny, so I think it's time to consult with a professional.

Mr. C was nice enough to come home early on Monday to care for me and Chicky and he had already scheduled to have yesterday off, but today he went back to work. We're feeling his absence today. I'm not physically ready to deal with a demanding toddler. Chicky has watched far too much television over the past few days and eaten way too many Cheerios (Straight out of the box. I'm Mother of the Year!) but we're doing what we can to get through this.

Good lord, I sound all doom and gloom, don't I? Well believe me, I'm worse in person. So far I've diagnosed myself with meningitis, tuberculosis, and the bubonic plague. I'm still leaning toward tuberculosis but I'm not counting out the plague just yet.

Being sick sucks. 'Nuff said.

Oh, but I have found something to love through all this. My newest review is up at my other site. Go. Enjoy.

And for crying out loud, keep that mask over your nose and mouth when you're around here. Jeez. I don't want everyone getting sick.

I don't think TV hours count when a parent is sick, do they?

Tori said...

Cheerios and tv is Chicky's prescription...

Now get to the doctor and get yours silly! I am a huge fan of pills, get some and take them NOW...

Feel better soon...

Jennifer said...

Feel better soon!

Oh, The Joys said...

Get well soon!

Kerry said...

Ugh, I hope it's not the plague. I thought I had that last year. As it turned out...I had.....whooping cough! Who gets that?? Me and the pilgrims, that's who.
Take care and feel better.

i'm sending you a bowl for vitural chix noodle soup.

as for the cheerios and tv, doesn't the packaging say 'relief for sick parents?'

Christina said...

TV doesn't count when you're sick. But if you've been feeling bad for several days, it's time to go to the doctor, I think.

Take care!

agh. it's been like that round here too. lots of green thick snot and hacking coughs. i feel like we've been like this for months now, on and off.

your daughter--GORGEOUS!

Damselfly said...

Sheesh, I hope you feel better. I hate going to the doctor too. Going to check out your review...

I just had to go to the doctor yesterday. My alergies are so bad it have chest congestion and haven't been able to breath well enough to go to the gym, it sucks. He put me on some good allergy meds so hopefully we'll both be feeling better soon.

Did you find an outfit to wear to Phoenix? Yee-haw.

If you've got what I've got, I'm pretty sure it's bubonic plague. I really hope you feel better soon and feel no guilt about the TV, we've been stuck on Treehouse for days (I have no energy, not a bit to even try to entertain a toddler).

FENICLE said...

Um I'm pretty sure watching tv hours on end & eating food out of the box is cancelled out when mom is sick!

Feel better soon. What did the dr say?

blackbeltmama said...

Cheerios out of the box taste way better! Feel better and stop diagnosing yourself already. If I get a zit, I convince myself I have 16 different maladies. I think the plague may have been one of them at some point.

crazymumma said...

I learned a long time ago that the stay at home parent is not allowed to get sick. It is so hard with an active child around. TV and cheerios are very good for them though so do not depair, much better than lovingly cooked meals and reading....


hope you get better very soon.

Can you call in a teemager to entertain her while you take a nap?

Mom101 said...

I'm crossing my fingers that it's the plague. Think how great it would be to blog about!

(Get well dahlink)

*santizes hands and runs away*

I really do hope you feel better soon

jen said...

the horror of accompanied sick time. it's preposterous. i simply fall apart in pity when that happens. there should be rules against this...instant help delivered to our doors. god knows, it's only fair.

hang in there.

Hi there - just found your blog through someone elses and wanted to let you know that not only is your daughter toooo cute (I have three of my own so I know cute when I see it!) I am enjoying your blog immensly.

Come by and visit my blog sometime if you get the chance :)

Heather Bea said...

I agree with everyone when you are sick tv and cheerios are perfectly fine. Would you rather make yourself even more sick? Hope you feel better soon.

PunditMom said...

Yup, I agree -- no worries about TV and Cheerios until you're feeling MUCH better.

Kristina said...

I'm coming out of lurkdom because I am sick too and I feel your pain. I have strep throat, but before going to the doctor I diagnosed myself with meningitis too. And the African flu.

Feel better.

Kyla said...

Go to the doctor...and my money is on it being strep. Can I win something if I'm right? *lol*

Nancy said...

Hope you are feeling better soon, and that it's nothing serious.

Ruth Dynamite said...

Sounds like bird flu.

(Sorry. Not funny.)

I hope you feel better very soon!

Kristin said...

Next time, call me... I'm not a doctor, but I play one on the Internet.
