Light At The End Of The Tunnel. & Update

I cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. This flu/virus is horrible. It attached itself to me last night and around 12a.m. I found myself on my knees in front of the toilet throwing up what felt like my stomach.

Ever since I've been struggling just to sit upright. Any change in position has me feeling nauseous and ready to pass out. Standing is out of the question. 

For the first time in my five years of marriage I've done something I've never done before. I asked for help. And help came in the wonderful, loving, caring, and helpful form of my mother-in-law. She has cooked, cleaned,  and watched the boy's the whole day so far. Allowing me to get some much needed rest and peace of mind that someone is watching and taking care of my boys.

Now I understand why so many mothers and fathers have a whole support system in place. It allows the parents the comforting knowledge that should they need help its available at any time.

I would love to have on hand such a support know that I know just how great it is. Unfortunately, there's no one available.


As of today (9/17) I am doing much better still having some mild symptoms of the flu but I am able to take care of the boys and hubby again. Of course that includes cleaning and cooking. Thank God for naptime it gives me time to recharge my batteries so that I can be on the go the moment the boys open their eyes.

Unfortunately, both the boys have come down sick. Baby VP started showing signs of the flu yesterday morning and by yesterday evening he was fully under it. Baby J. also was showing a mild case of the flu yesterday evening but we thought he might get skipped over , sadly that was not the case. He too, has joined his brother in the misery of being sick. 

But they're both troopers and brave little boys. 

And the extra cuddles...ah those are the best. Even if there is a lot of runny noses, fevers, and vomiting involved. That's what the bucket is for.
