sick days

yuck...for the last week, the van voorsts have been taken down by the crud.

i started feeling yucky last wednesday, had some serious flu on tuesday, and spent wednesday recovering. on thursday atticus woke up with a cough, on friday he woke up with a runny nose and a fever. by the weekend, whatever he has was in full swing; he spent saturday vegging on the couch watching march madness.

(please ignore the hairdo - i was going for 'the geraldo' but until my mustache comes in, that doesn't really come across.)

he is still cruddy. he's got a major cough, gross nasal congestion, and he can hardly breathe when he sleeps...meaning he doesn't sleep. at 5:30 this morning i brought him into our bed and he (thankfully) slept another 2 hours, otherwise it would've been an early morning.

so here's to hoping that a) it's not RSV like i suspect; b) even if it is, he starts feeling better and we can come out of quarantine; and c) todd doesn't come down with something next.

and in pregnancy news:

1) i have an ultrasound thursday morning
2) i just caught myself putting a mug full of pens in the microwave and hitting the start button.

So sorry you guys have had the crud but LOVE the pens in the microwave story! LOL! Pregnancy makes you do weird things. One afternoon I found a bag of (used to be) frozen berries in our kitchen junk drawer. I had put them in there after making a smoothie that morning... weird
