I should have known it was inevitable, but I caught the virus HJ had.  It started Monday night.  I was feeling decent, and all of a sudden I felt like I was getting something.  Within an hour, I had a fever.  My fever has stayed between 100-101 since Monday night.  I also have a body shaking cough, and no appetite what-so-ever.

Monday night, I was unable to throw dinner together since I felt so horrible.  HJ made himself a peanut butter sandwich and washed an apple, while I laid on the couch.  Around 7:45, I told him I needed to go to bed.  I got him ready for bed, turned the sleep timer on my tv and said, “when the tv turns off, it’s time for bed”.

Last night was a repeat.

HJ has put himself to bed for 2 nights in a row.  The poor kid is taking care of his mama.  I have been too exhausted to do much of anything, so I am so relieved my baby has been able to take care of himself.  Now, I just need to get better!

3 Thoughts on “When Mom’s Get Sick

  1. Yes, feel better!! HJ is such a great helper!

  2. Awww feel better! Yup single moms don’t get sick days lol. Last time I was sick I rested in bed and Emma was so cute she was like “can I bring you orange juice mama?”

  3. I have been sick for over 4 weeks now and ended up super sick Christmas Eve through Christmas day with a fever, as well. My kiddo had to do the same thing-practically run the whole show. Luckily, I had some friends pick her up in the early afternoon on Christmas day for a trail ride and some fun. It was rough! I hope you are well now and had a wonderful holiday regardless. Best wishes for 2015! XOXO-Kasey
