Ok, that was scary

The 3 year old woke up this morning crying for a glass of water. She’s had a tummy bug for a few days so we’re really nervous about dehydration, especially since hub’s recent trip to the hospital. So hub takes her downstairs to get a glass of water, then runs up to brush his teeth and whatnot. When he goes back down, he finds her lying on the kitchen floor, limp and moaning. She was utterly lethargic and her eyes kept rolling back in her head, and her cheeks were bright red.

Freak out.

Rush her to the doctor who says that she’s just tired from being sick. She took something like 5 hours of nap today and seems to be a little better, although we scrapped our out of town plans for the weekend.

Anyone get migraines? I’ve had one for the last 2 days and I’m losing my mind. My doc gave me a sample of Imitrex the other day and it did nothing for me except make my nose run and give me the worst nasty ass-butt taste in the back of my mouth. I can deal with the Midrin, but it makes me soooooooooooo looooooooooooopy. Whee!

The one year old woke up with the most enormous bedhead I have ever seen in my whole entire life. She looked something like this, only with less facial hair and wrinkles.

My sleep schedule’s all awry since I joined 3 year old for a nap this afternoon. She and I slept in the big bed, and she refused to cuddle with me, the little twerp. Then when it was time for another nap, she went up and slept in our bed by herself, wanting nothing to do with her own bed. This is frightening because in the past 2 weeks we’ve had to do 2 emergency sheet changes on her bed due to various leaking bodily functions.

Luckily, our bed seems to be (mostly) unsullied. I think it’s high time I climbed into it.

    Y’know, the migraine paired with the listlessness I’ve seen you have for the past couple weeks on the blog… it seems to be something more. Just a thought.

    Well, the lethargy probably stems from that filthy time change that they foist on us yearly. It’s guaranteed to make me feel icky. The migraine, I’m guessing, is because I had a hair appointment yesterday and spent a good 30 minutes without my glasses on, squinting at a magazine.

    I feel lucky, and am therefore going to jinx myself by saying, that I have never had a migraine.

    And I *love* this time change! I love getting that extra hour back.

    I wish they wouldn’t steal it from me in the first place.
