the kidney pain is back. It started the day before Thanksgiving. It doesn't hurt in the front like before though so I guess I should be thankful. It just hurts in the back like someone kicked me with a steel toed boot. I don't want to go back to the horrible specialist. He's the best around here and that's not saying much. I guess should also be thankful that I can manage during the day with a heating pad on it but gosh it hurts so much to turn over at night that I wake up. Not a happy girl right now!
The oldest kiddo got sick yet again on Friday. I heard him making noises like he was going to vomit and I was already so queasy myself. I tried to get him up put the stinker puked and then laid right in it trying to go back to sleep. By the time I got him in the tub he was upset but still trying to go to sleep. I put like 1/2 inch of water in the tub and washed him quickly and ran to clean it all up because it smelled so horrible. By the time I was done puking myself he was laying down alseep in the tub. Yes I freaked and screamed, he tossed the towel in the tub and tried to get dressed soaking wet. I was screaming some more (not my finest moment!) and he got scared and ran down the hall telling me to quit being the boss of him.
I finally got him settled and myself calmed down but by then dh had sprayed some stupid air freshener all over the room and that just made me more queasy and I started having an asthma attack. So I sat out in the living room with J while we waited for the smell from the air freshener to die down. Now J has a cough that he woke up with today and K has it too. She tells me her nose hurts s I need to call the Dr. to have her checked for a sinus infection. She's had 3 back to back colds since the second week of October.

the 3rd full day of the oldest being home. The boys were fever free this morning. Crossing my fingers the fevers stay away. The school likes them to be fever free 24 hours before returning. I don't know how many parents follow that though. I've been there when kids were seeming to cough up lungs and dragging around. If a kid is that sick they should be home resting so they can get better instead of worse. I guess it hits us harder because of our lung issues. I hate this time of year. At least this is the first illness the school season and it didn't happen the second week of school.

Poor little guy is so sick right now. I was in the middle of making his birthday cake when the school nurse called. So I had to drop it all and go get him. He was so upset and crying and just looks like he feels like crap. I think he's more upset about missing his birthday. I almost cried in the school office with him. I did promise him he will still get his cake and his presents.
He slept for almost 2 hours after I gave him some Motrin. Then he came running when I turned on the Scooba. He for some reason thought I was vacuuming up his toys, lol. Maybe he should keep them picked up, hahahaha! He tried to play games on his computer but didn't have it in him. Within 5 minutes he was laying his head down so I picked him up and laid him down on the couch and turned on some cartoons for him to watch. Poor kiddo! He still has a headache but his fever is down to 99F now. I just hope it doesn't spike really high. He has a tendency to do that. Especially if if has an ear infection or sinus infection.
Sorry your birthday is filled with germs big boy!

Hubby is home today, they get every other Friday off but he usually has to go to work anyway. Any how, I'm going to sneak out and go birthday shopping for my oldest. I don't want to over do. I'm thinking ONE gift from each of us will do. One from Mom, one from Dad, one from baby brother and one from baby sister. He's got so much junk in the form of toys he really doesn't need any more. I don't want to spend a ton either with Christmas coming up so soon.
