Calgone, take me away...

No really, stop the madness.

Jaxon is still running a fever, waking himself up with crazy bark-coughing, cranky from lack of sleep, and now complaining his head hurts, which is either residual pain from where his cousin Hailey drilled him in the head with a golf club last week ( I guess girls DO know how to play rough) or more likely- his ear infections are coming full bloom.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

I've been up this morning with Dave from a little before 5 because he is burning with fever, but couldn't stop shivering to save his life. We got pajama's on him, piled him with blankets, and I wrapped myself around him (sorry for that visual if it is disturbing to anyone) but he was shaking like I've never seen, teeth chattering, the whole nine yards. Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep after that.

Now I have a cough, my ears are killing me, and I would love nothing more than a whole day to stay in bed to sleep it off, but the last one sick is outta luck- I have two sick boys to take care of and no one to take care of me. Sorry about that pity party, but it's the only partying that will get done around here in the next few days.

oh know! That is the worst ever! I am so sorry! I know whenever I am sick I always want my mommy, even if she doesn't really do anything just knowing she is there is enough. WE've been feeling kinda yucky over here as well, and to make matters worse Kelsey is leaving for Cali tomorrow morning till sun night for a conference. Grr. But sorry to turn the tables onto me, I really feel sad for you guys!

Man...that is NO fun. Just remember, you will all be back to yourselves soon! Get lots of REST and drink fluids. Let me know if you need anything, I am just around the corner!

Oh, Ash.
It's so miserable to be sick. Especially when you have others you're responsible for that are sick, too.
I wish I could come help take care of all of you.
The best I got for you right now is to suggest you all try and get as much rest as possible.
That, and get some sweet over-the-counter drugs to help alleviate the symptoms you have until the bug you've got has run its course.
I'll pray for you all, too.
Love you.
