Feeling Better I Am, Yes
Feeling better I am, yes
Last night wasn't much fun.  For some reason, Kevin who had been fever-free since that afternoon decided he really didn't want to go to bed.  Grig had work that he had to get up for at 3:00 a.m. and I still felt awful.  Eventually we got him to calm down and go to sleep, but it was difficult to be patient when I didn't feel good.

Grig is an awesome father, after Kevin screamed in my ear for 45 minutes, Grig came and took him out of the room and walked him around in the dark.  I still couldn't sleep (if the baby is awake it is nearly impossible for me to fall asleep), but it was really nice to have a break.  At that point I was literally crying tears of frustration.

Anyway, once Grig brought Kevin back in and changed his diaper, he went to sleep and we were able to follow suit.  I actually got quite a bit of sleep last night compared to the night before.  My fever came back, but with two blankets, I was still able to sleep through most of  it.

This morning, I woke up feeling a ton better!  I still have a slight fever, but I had the energy to get dressed and I feel well enough to care that my house is a mess. I might actually work on that today. 

Sorry to talk about being sick so much.  Really, that's all that's been happening the last two days.

Even when I was feeling my worst, I still managed to have a sense of humor.  I asked Grig to feel my forehead yesterday and he said, "Yes, you are hot."

I couldn't help but quip, "You're pretty attractive yourself."

It reminds me of when I gave birth to Kevin.  I had been pushing for three hours and the nurse said something.  I was in a lot of pain, but I quipped something at her too.  I don't remember what it was, but I do remember her saying, "Well, at least you still have a sense of humor."

Humor gets me through a lot of things.  Sometimes it gets me in trouble too, but I really think that if we can laugh at the world when it's trying to beat us down, we're the ones who end up coming out smiling in the end.

So, that's my final say.  I'm feeling better, and I'm very grateful.  It's not much fun to feel awful when your son has too much energy, but I am grateful that he recovered more quickly than I did.  We were concerned about him for a while, but he is doing great!
