Dr. Jekyll & Mrs. Sick

One day its 70 degrees out, the next its 27. No wonder I've got a cold.

Yesterday I woke after a fitful night of tossing and turning, not being able to breathe. Being freezing cold and nudging Babers to put his legs on mine to warm me, then suddenly being hot and shoving his legs off. Poor guy.

So I get up and get ready for work. Coughing, sneezing. I decide to take medicine and head to the office. It will pass. Half way there I'm fighting my eyelids. They're getting heavier and Can't I just pull over for a nap? Oops. Looks like I took the drowsy stuff.

I end up leaving work, stopping by Winn Dixie for a jug of OJ, chicken noodle soup and some non-drowsy meds. I hope in bed, pull the covers over my head and curl into a ball. Four hours later I wake up in the same position, still under the covers.

And my J, he's such a trooper. He's very much a cuddle bug and wants kisses every time he passes me. You're going to get sick! I tell him, pushing him away, to which he replies I'm going to get sick no matter what. May as well make it worth it!

Yep, he's mine ladies. Hands off. :)

And the rest of my sick evening went like this:

J: On his way home - Can I get you anything?
Me: I'd give anything for a 20 oz Sprite.
J: Okay, I'll grab one. Anything else?
Me: No, thanks babe.
J: K, see you in a bit.
Me: Can you pick up two?

Me: Its HOT. I guess I'll get up and turn the heat down.
J: I'll get it.
Me: When he doesn't jump fast enough - Ugh, I'll get it.
J jumps up to turn heat down.
Me: Thanks babe, I love you. Can you get the fan while you're at it?

*snort* I'm a mess when I'm sick.

I yank the covers over, tell him he's hogging the bed and can he Please scoot over? J puts his legs on me. I fuss and push them off. Then I'm freezing, and ask him to put his legs back on mine. In the dark I can feel him giving me a look. Then he snuggles up to me and I whine. Babe, don't get in my faceeee... I'm sick.

The man has patience yo.

Are you like this when you're sick?

I'm pretty good about toughing through a cold or modest fever, but generally once a year I'll get nasty sick and become a gigantic baby for 3-4 days. More so than usual that is.

When he gets sick, you'll do it all for him, won't you?

Hope you feel better soon.

You have such a sweet husband!

I'm also cranky when I'm sick. I haven't been in a while and hopefully it stays that way.

LOL...nope, I'm the complete opposite..when I'm sick, don't talk to me, don't look at me, don't bring me food, don't bring me drinks, STOP LOOKING at me, STOP TALKING to me, I SAID NO I don't want anything! STOP ASKING ME~!


I hope you feel better soon!

I'm with Stacie. Minus the crazy.
I like to just be left alone when sick. Gimme some good meds and the t.v. remote and I'll be ok.

I never see my husband when I'm sick, so I must be worse than you! LOL!!!

I hope you are feeling better soon! Also, he IS going to get sick and there is NOTHING worse than a sick man. Nothing. Godspeed.

awwww bless your little plugged up nose and feverish body.... i hope you feel better. but hey, it's a good time to watch mOOvies.
when i am sick, i like to sleep it off and be pampered. diane is good at that. and yes i get hot then cold then hot again and cold again... a long hot bath works wonders, specially reading a good magazine in there. i like to have liptons chicken noodle soup, the one in the box... and hot tea. i also like to get comfy on the couch and watch TV.
i usually use my heating pad on my lower back which feels soooo good. diane will rub my back and feet for the longest time. all comforting things.
