The Sick Room

I heard David moving about the room so I jumped up and apologized for not packing his lunch before I went back to bed.  Confused, he looked at me and let me know that it was 3 am and he was just getting home from work not leaving.  Yup, it was one of those nights.


Yesterday I kept Ant home from school because of his very bad cough.  The same cough he had so graciously shared with Lex and I.  The same cough I was praying would just go away.  No such luck.  I had the boys in bed with me watching a movie early in the afternoon.  They both fell asleep so I let them sleep.  Come bed time, thankfully Anthony went straight to sleep but Alex was up well into the morning.  

He fell asleep around one.  By 2 he was crying because his legs were hurting and he was burning up.  So I gave him some medicine and we went back to sleep.  At three I woke up and freaked out about Davids lunch.  Around 4 the vomiting started.  Another hour of sleep before round two.  At 5:55 he had to go to the bathroom so I figured I would just stay up.  When I went to wake up Anthony.....he was burning up.  So while his brother was finally sleeping I got him all medicated and hydrated and sent him back to bed.  

Alex only slept for a little while and David was still tossing and turning, so we went and camped out on the couch for a little bit.  But then the couch was uncomfortable and Alex was sweaty and getting stuck to the leather.  So we went and camped out in the boys room.  Me, Alex, Anthony and Poncho all snuggled up on the bed.  If only I could have gotten a picture.  P-Dog takes up more space than I do.  And between the 3 boys, I was sweating up a storm.  

Before he left again for work at noon, David came in and declared the room the sick room.  He said goodbye to us and was on his way.  I honestly think he was running away,  its like the plague in here.  Alex and I moved back to my room.  Its much more comfy in here.  And he is currently sleeping like a rock.  I give him a few more minuets before he starts crying because on top of it all, he has major growing pains.  And will scream out in pain until I massage his legs.  Breaks my heart to hear him cry like that.  

Tonight, its chicken noodle soup for dinner.  I'm going to give this recipe a try.  Heart carrots and all.  Aren't they the cutest carrots you ever seen!  Click on the picture to hop over to Sophistimom to get the recipe and see how she shaped the carrots.

Sophistimom: Chicken Soup and heart shaped carrots

The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend.  Plus its a long weekend.  But my chances of going to the Zoo like I planned aren't looking to hot right about now.  Although some fresh air might do us all a whole lot of good! Anyone have fun plans for the weekend?  Hopefully we will all be better and I will have stories and photos to share.  I LOVE the San Antonio Zoo.

Kids are crying, that's my cue!  Have a great weekend!

  1. Hi! This is my first time here. I am dropping by from Our Everyday Harvest's blog hop. The soup looks delightful. I'm sorry that you and your babies are sick. Your children may not be old enough yet, but one of my friends suggested Horehound tea (yeps weird name) for coughs. I picked some up at the health good store and no joke, the cough was gone in three days. She uses it with her daughter who is four and has asthma. Even if you can't use it now, maybe in the future. I am anew follower. I hope you can stop by and say hello: http://heresmytakeonit.blogspot.com/

We spent sunday and monday in the hospital for my dad so I guess my sister picked something up there and by wednesday she was sick and by this morning my munchkin woke up sick. Now its me! My munchkin woke up crying so bad because he couldnt talk with how bad his throat hurt so I broke out crying because I hate hate cant stand it at all to see him in pain. So there we were at 6am crying like crazy this morning. It hasnt been the best of days but hopefully we will be better soon. Hope all you guys are on the road to recovery as well!

    1. It is so hard to see them sick. My oldest brings it all home from school and shares it here. My little one got it the worst this time around and was just a mess. And only mom will do for him. My poor husband tries to help, but I think he just ends up getting his feelings hurt because Alex only wants me! I hope you guys are feeling better today! HUGS!

    1. Thank You. The soup was good. The boys and I both had some late last night and after they were done, they were both out like a light! Must have hit the spot for them! Of course once they were sleeping I had to catch up on things, but I did feel better!

  7. Kim, I'm exhausted just reading your post.

    Prayers and positive thoughts are headed your way for a very speedy recovery for "the sick room" patients.

    And the fact that you have energy to make that delicious looking soup? You're amazing.

  9. So sorry you have sick kiddos! That soup looks good. My hubby makes soup when everyone is sick and almost always puts green chilis in it, or something equally sinus clearing. I really believe it clears out the sick!

    Get well soon!
