Wild weekend!

Starting this past Thursday we had amazing weekend (insert sarcasm here). My mother-in-law showed up to my work about 5pm on Thursday, I get zero cell reception at the high school I've been covering for 2 weeks, and said that Mike passed out at home and had to call our Dr. friend from our ward. So I called Danessa and she said that Mike look AWFUL. Apparently Mike was checking on Isabel and was trying to get to her when he passed out in my dinning room. He came down with a temperature that day and was feeling pretty crappy when I left. So our Doc weighing all of 130lbs had to practically carry my 230+ husband to the couch. She thought he had full blown influenza. Thankfully we had some friend who came and gave him a blessing and stayed with him and brought him soup and gatorade (by the way those two men are now on their death bed also). So Friday I had to leave and go to work but Mike wasn't' completely dead yet. I came home from work and felt funny and Izzy was SOOO tired and getting a little sick. So Sat. morning I woke up at 1:30 and for the next 7 hrs ever 30 min, I got sick. Mike slept on the couch because he wasn't feeling well either, I guess Isabel was coughing (think pneumonia and TB put together) and was calling out for me in the middle of the night, I never heard her, not that I could have gotten to her either way. So Saturday Mike and I had our respective couches with Isabel miserable between us. We finally started feeling better that night and after Isabel slept for hrs Mike and her stayed home from church and I can finally say at 9pm on Sunday that other then a runny nose and funny cough of Isabel and the same cough from Mike we are back to normal. Tomorrow comes the sanitizing of the house! Hope your weekend was better!

That sucks!!! Is it bad to say that I'm kind of glad that John didn't get home from school in time to help out with the blessing. Not that I'm glad he couldn't help but I am a little glad that he didn't get sick because it sounds horrable and I don't want to get sick either. I'm glad you guys are feeling better though.

Bless your stuffy little heart! Olivia woke up last night with a slight temperature, but nothing like your fiasco. And, about your Greensboro comment, I can already predict that two people are going to either get mad at me or get their feelings hurt before I leave. Sometimes it really stinks having to teach pure doctrine!

Caroline, I have no idea what we had...I think Izzy has a sinus infection now thou so one day I'll get her to the Dr. I'll wait a couple more days and see if the humidifier works. I'm just glad that Mike is better!
