Gone are the days when I could go home, take some Tylenol PM and sleep all night.
Angry Toddler was sick Wednesday night. I kept him home Thursday. He slept about half the day and then I took him to the Dr. in the afternoon. They diagnosed him with an ear infection and a cold. They gave him some antibiotics and sent us on our way, minus a $25 co-pay.
Yesterday, Angry Husband stayed home with Angry Toddler since AT was medicated. AT is not good on medications. He has asthma and when he gets breathing treatments, he goes on a steroid-al high. That's why we kept him home. Well I got to work, all was fine and dandy. About 2 hours later, my nose started running..
By the end of the day, my runny nose had turned into a full blown cold. I waited until I got home to take some cold meds. As the night went on, my cold got worse.
I woke up this morning at 5am not feeling any better. I took a shower and drugged myself with some more Tylenol Cold. Why didn't I stay home from work? Because I would be all alone with Angry Toddler. Does that sound like a fun day when you're sick? My mom watched AT on Saturdays. But sometimes, well ok most of the time, she's pretty selfish. If she knew I was staying home sick, she wouldn't have come over to watch AT.
So here I sit at work, miserable. I have to leave work at 2pm anyway, my parents are leaving for an anniversary party. Hopefully, Angry Husband will get home early and I can get some sleep. I already laid on the floor here in my office for an hour. Laying on a concrete floor, using your jacket as a pillow is not comfortable, just an FYI.
If I don't feel any better, I'm calling in sick tomorrow. Angry Husband will be home tomorrow and he can take care of AT.
I might be blogging a little or a lot today. I can't tell. I can't concrete on work right now, so Internet surfing will keep me preoccupied for now.
