The day after we got back from our vacation, Ammon did the throwing up thing again. All over me and my Activity Days bag. Weird. Nate and I both really thought it was the elevation sickness thing again. But the next day, he was burning up with a fever, and had diarrhea. Of course, I happened to be at work. I cuddled with him all day Friday. Then I had to work Saturday, July 9th. Again, he was fevering! I felt terrible.
I got up Sunday after sleeping all day, and when I got in the shower, my stomach felt weird. I decided to wait, wait, wait. Just a few more minutes. Maybe I'll feel better. Ugh! When I finally called in, it was almost 3 PM, and I knew they were short staffed. I felt so guilty! But why did I feel guilty? I was actually sick! Not faking it! About an hour after I called my work, I burned up with the WORST fever ever! I had the aches and chills and everything. Absolutely miserable. I never threw up, but I felt very nauseous and zero appetite. I literally laid in bed all night. The next day, I laid in bed until late afternoon. Then I took some tylenol, got up and started cleaning and painting furniture (I wanted the dresser in the girls' room to be white). I was feeling pretty good! The next morning my BFF Kami, Sophie, and cute little baby Reese came for a visit. Kami had a hair appointment, so Sophie stayed and played with my girls, which they loved!
Later that evening, I started to feel achy again, so I laid down for a nap. When I woke up, I was burning up again!! I could not believe it! I was supposed to be up early the next morning for Activity Days 'Day Camp.' I called Christy Sparrow to tell her at 8 PM that I wouldn't be there...I felt SO guilty! I felt like the biggest flake! Seriously, how could I still be sick?
The next day I was still a dead beat. I laid on the couch and turned on movies for the kids. I called Allison to vent, and she became so concerned she immediately came to my rescue! She brought me a huge sprite and took my girls for a sleepover. It was a blessing from heaven! Ammon and I took such a good nap!
The next day I was supposed to work, and what do you know, I got better just in time. Allison was sweet enought to keep the girls ANOTHER night! Oh my heck, they had a ball! They jumped on the tramp, watched movies, ate popcorn and treats, played with uncle Darin, and pretty much had the time of their lives! I loved that Allison did that for me. She's exactly the kind of sister every woman needs. She is ALWAYS there when I need her. ALWAYS.
