Sick Sucks

Ohmygodyouguys. I am so sick. It hit me like a freight train yesterday not long after I got back from visiting the daycare place (coincidence?). I actually felt okay about the place, especially because both the teacher and the director are mothers, because the class will be small (6 children), and because there will be a little boy there who is 4 days younger than Claire. Knowing that she's at least got someone else there her age makes me feel better. We'll see how the drop off tomorrow morning goes - I'm not looking forward to handing off my baby and hearing her cry. I know I'll cry too because I cried twice yesterday just talking to the daycare people. I know, I'm an emotional wreck, but this is my baby we're talking about, plus whenever I'm sick I cry a lot.

So, I don't know if this is the head cold from hell or if it's the flu, but my whole body aches, my head feels like someone is jabbing a knife into it, I'm coughing, sneezing, congested, and have fever and chills. Luckily, Huz stayed home today, but Claire was quite needy and clingy, so I really didn't get a day off. I suppose once you're a mother you never get a day off from being a mother, even if you're sick. Oh well. It's nice to be needed, I guess. The worst part about this sickness is that I can't take any medication because I'm still breastfeeding. I've only taken Tylenol which does help with the head ache and body pains, but doesn't touch the congestion, sneezing and coughing. I just hope that Claire doesn't get sick. Please send prayers for good health her way. (It would be ironic if she got her first cold from me when part of my hesitation about sending her to daycare is fear that she'll get sick from the other kids.)
