Thank God It's Friday!

This was the week from hell. Leo, both boys and I got sick on Sunday. Thankfully, on Sunday I felt well enough to make us all a pot of my wonderful chicken soup with rice. Monday and Tuesday I called out sick from work. I felt horrible. The boys felt horrible. Monday Leo was starting to feel better. Thankfully Nicki (SIL) and Phoebe were feeling fine.

We avoided taking the boys to the doctor until Tuesday. I decided when Monday night Tommy slept barely at all and every time we laid him on his back he thrashed and woke up. Turns out he couldn't breathe. The cold settled in his chest. So I decided to take them both in and this is what the doctor let us know and put them both on nebulizer treatments 4 times a day.

Wednesday and Thursday I worked from home to help with treatments for both boys (if they were in day care I'd have to do them both myself). I thank my lucky stars for Nicki! We went back to the doctor on Thursday and she said they are a little better, but she can hear that their lungs are getting better and to keep going with the treatments on Tommy, but Liam doesn't need them more than morning and bedtime, and she wants to see them next week.

Today (Friday) was my first day back at work and it was horrible. I should have put a deli number system for the people at my cube, the phone ringing and the IM messages I was getting all day - and I feel like nothing productive was accomplished. A few doors closed to possibilities and some things just went no where. I should have read my horoscope for today. I'm sure it was bad.

I now want to go home, snuggle my babies, order take-out comfort food, watch mindless TV shows I've recorded and haven't watched all week and enjoy that I just found out we have Monday off work and I had no idea!

Have a great weekend everyone!

BTW, I just almost thought Blogger ate this post with the error I got, but I was able to retrieve it in tact. That would've been the icing on the cake if it was lost....

I'm sorry you had such a rough week! I had a day yesterday that felt like 3 days in one; it was that hectic. Thank God it's weekend!!!

Oh no! I'm sorry you had a bad week. I hope your weekend gets better. Enjoy those babies!

I'm sorry for your hard week. It reminds me situation in our family one week ago. We had been sick, a lot of cough, runny nose and so on. However, none of us went to a doctor. We drank a lot of tea with honey and lemon and also syrup cough. And fortunately that helped. Hope your next week will be fine.

Take care,

I know that your life is hectic. I had a friend who had twins about the same time we had our first son. I don't know how they survived. Still, I'm starting to worry about you. Hope you find time to post, even a short one, soon.
