Monday I felt stuffy and tired, so Monday night I took some nyquil and fell asleep around 8. I woke up about a quarter to six feeling pretty good, so I was excited that maybe the worst was past. Ha.
Then about a half hour later I was making the girls lunches, when all of a sudden I felt like I was going to pass out. Ugh! So I sat down, put my head down, ate some breakfast, but it didn't get much better. I took the girls to school and told the office I'd need a sub for the day. I couldn't shake that light-headed, about to pass out feeling. The sub came in at the end of first period and I went home and slept until it was time to pick the girls up.
Wednesday was better-ish. Maggie had diarrhea after school and told me, "Oh, yeah, I've had diarrhea all day!" I said, "Oh, you could have told the nurse and she would have called me or grandma to take you home," but Maggie wasn't fazed by it. "Nah," she said. "I was fine. I just went to the bathroom a lot, pooped a lot, went to the bathroom a lot, pooped a lot." No big deal! Just some loose stools, after all!
By Thursday Nina was sneezing like mad. On Friday both girls stayed home, and Nina seemed to get better while Maggie started to go downhill.
Saturday was worse for everyone. Around 9 in the morning Nina felt like she couldn't breathe well, which is a symptom of one of the strands of the virus going around, but the pediatrician said to give her an NSAID to reduce the inflammation in her chest, and that plus a decongestant really helped. By lunchtime they were both doing much better. See:
