misery is mine.

it started wednesday night with an achy throat. i had drainage running, and figured it was just an allergy thing. thursday things were about the same. friday, they kicked it up a notch to full-blown sinus pressure, painful glands, watering eyes, really hurting throat, rapid, violent sneezing and a dripping-while-also-stuffy nose.

i thought yesterday was unbearable.

but now it's today.

i feel like i've been hit by a truck, and my chest is all tight and wheezy now too. i got up at 4 a.m. to sit in the shower for 30 minutes because i felt like i was drowning. after setting up the vaporizer and slathering my raw nose and lips with vaseline, i did manage to sleep for a few hours.

no tylenol, sudafed, benadryl or vicks has made much of a dent.

i'm going to call the doctor tomorrow so i can go see if it's a sinus infection. that's sorta my hunch. i guess we'll see.

grayson doesn't seem to be bothered a bit. as i was laying awake all through the night last night, he never stopped kicking. i hope he realizes there will be time for sleeping when he arrives into the henry household.

it was nice to have a little company though.

OK, the drips of snot on the keyboard are too many to ignore now.

must stop typing to wipe.

You are cracking me up!

I can totally understand little G kicking and helping to keep you awake in your misery. :) Owen is doing the same thing. This whole bedrest thing ... he's not taking to it by resting, that's for sure.

I had a very vivid image of your nose dripping onto the keyboard...and LOL, not supposed to laugh that hard...makes keeping myself "dry" very difficult. :)

Hope you feel better soon!
