Yesterday was THE day.  I turned 30.  So far, thirty is no fun.  Early Wednesday morning HJ woke me up with this horrible seal like cough.  I instantly knew it was croup.  He has never had croup…but it is one of things that when you hear that cough, you know.  As for me, I had a cold.

First thing in the morning, I brought HJ to the doctor.  The doctor gave him 2 injections to help with his croup (I cried).  Throughout the day my cold was getting worse and worse…and to add to that, I was having terrible cramps.  My mom came and took HJ so I could go into work for a few hours.  My family had been planning on taking me out to dinner, but I was not in the mood.  Even the cupcakes my mom brought over made my stomach churn…so mine is still sitting in the kitchen.

We haven’t had much sleep the last few nights, and I still feel like crap.  I am hoping to be better by tomorrow because I have friends coming into town to go out and celebrate.  Eek.
