No Good Title

Thanks for all the well wish about the kids and their illnesses. Lizzie finished her meds today (I LOVE Zithromax, it is so easy to remember to give it once a day for 5 days instead of 3 times a day for 10 days like other meds) and has felt better since her first dose. C finally, FINALLY seems to have gotten over his as well. He is eating more and has had no more accidents.

In worse news, I managed to pick it up from him. Yesterday was the worst. I felt like death and of course the kids had to be at their worst because I was in no condition to deal with them. Mostly, I layed around on the couch and dosed most of the day. Except for a while when I coerced Lizzie into the bedroom to watch Little Bear and I was able to nap, for real. Of course, yesterday was the first time in months dh has worked overtime so he wasn't even home to help out.

I feel better today, although still a little icky and not eating much. For the last 2 days, I've eaten a bowl of soup, 3 bowls of white rice and 3/4 of an apple. Plus some iced tea. I imagine I've lost some weight and hopefully I'll keep a bit of it off, although feeling like this is not the recommended way to go about weight loss. I think I might go have another part of an apple though because that is about the only thing that sounds good. If I didn't know better (and I do because it isn't physically possible anymore since I had a hystorectomy when Lizzie was born), I would say I was pregnant because this is exactly how I felt when I was pg with Liz. I craved fruit all the time and that was about the only thing I could eat that didn't make my want to hurl. It is also the reason I LOST 25lbs in my first trimester, resulting in a net gain of like 2 lbs for the whole pregnancy.

In fact, I feel better enough to be disgusted by my house but not yet better enough to actually do anything about it. It looks like a dirty dish and cloths bomb exploded in this place. Hopefully tomorrow, although I'm not particularly interested in spending my whole day cleaning to make up for a couple of missed days. :(
