Celebrations No More...

Unfortunately our celebrating stopped around 10pm last night when Mark first started showing sings of the "Winter Vomiting Disease." Frankly, I think the term "stomach flu" is a little less gruesome, then again, Mark would probably say it was gruesome. Neither of us slept much until after 5am when he finally was able to get some rest. Of course, it was around that time that I first started feeling the pangs of "uh-oh." Thankfully, thus far mine has just been the Big D, with aches and pains...hope we can keep the vomiting part out of this round. We have also found out that 2 of our other friends who we hung out with Friday night are sick. Guess someone had this and didn't realize....

Really we have been fortunate because in 5 and a half (plus) years of marriage, neither of us has had this mess before. I'm so glad! I hope we can go another 5 and a half! Mark said at least we are going through this together. I told him this is one thing I could have gone through with him without actually going through it with him!

Anyways, we won't be going anywhere tomorrow, unless I am feeling quite a bit better and decide to keep my x-ray appointment. I'd really hate to miss that, though I'd also hate to spread this nastiness.

Well I hope Mark (and possibly you) go through this quick!! We had the "stomach virus" twice last winter and already had our first bout this winter during Christmas!!

The only thing to be thankful for during your sickness (besides the sink being unclogged) is that you don't have sick kids, too. THAT is the worst way to have the stomach virus..... when the kids are sick as well!!! Double and triple YUCK!! And at least Mark is bucket trained.

We love you guys and hope this is fast and that you can keep your appointment tomorrow...I'd hate to think how long your next wait would be.

Yesterday I definitely thought, "oh, I'm so glad we don't have kids that this will cycle thru as well." Yes, very grateful for that unclogged drain and a working washing machine. If only I had strength to do all those dishes that are piled up! Just waiting for my sheet to dry so I can change the bed linens....maybe by tonight?!

Hoping to make the appointment today since while I'm not 100%, I'm not too bad. Just tired, so that's why I'm gonna go take a nap soon!

And at least today the weather is sunny (though cold). Got to open the window and air out the place a little. Fresh air is always good!

I'm sorry you all have been sick...Stomach flus are the worst, they take so much energy..I pray that God would heal you guys and allow you to make it to your x-ray appointment tomorrow...I'm also looking foward to seeing pictures of your new flat...I hope the move is a smooth one...We miss you guys!
