Sleep? What's that?

The sickies have officially made their way into the EyeCanSee house.
Thursday night while getting my hair done my phone rings.
It's the hubs.  Jamie has a 103 degree fever.
Joy.
So Friday I took the day off and spent it with my sick lil man.
Clingy doesn't even begin to describe him.
If I even think about putting him down, he's crying.
Makes sleep interesting for all involved.
Needless to say there hasn't been much of it going on.
Poor guy.
At least we've gotten in some extra mama snuggles this weekend.
But now, just as Jamie seems to be on the mend...I have that faint tickle in my throat.
You know the one.
The one that's going to linger for a few days before turning into a full nightmare leaving me on death's door just in time for our 12 hour trip to Ohio.
Yep.  That one.
I'm loading up on the vitamin C and zinc in a vein attempt to avoid what's inevitably going to happen.
Fingers crossed it works!
Mama can NOT be sick for Christmas.

Oh no! Hope Jamie feels better soon! And I hope you do not get sick! We will be heading down 70 to KY, so hopefully we will both have good travel weather as well!

OH! I'm so sorry to hear that Jamie got sick!!! My brother has a cold too. We've been giving him Vitamin C pills and Echinicea pills along with his multi-vitamin every morning.
I also have that faint tickle in my throat. I've been taking those pills I listed above too. Hopefully my cold won't get too bad.

Praying for you and your family!

Poor Jamie (and mommy)! I hope you don't get sick for Christmas. Definitely load up on Vitamin C and drink lots and I mean lots of hot tea.

Brigs had the sickies too! Very clingy but I appreciated the extra snuggles as well! Hope you both feel better soon.

I always hear people saying to take Airborne if you feel like you might be getting sick, I've never tried it but people swear by it! Good luck girl, hope you survive the trip! And Merry Christmas!
