Worst Week Ever
Ben and I were having such a great week last week...playing with cars and trucks and tractors, going to the park, and just hanging out together. Friday night I went to the movies with some friends (got a babysitter and everything!), and by the time I got home, I was not feeling so good. Saturday morning I woke up with a fever, headache and just a general yucky feeling. I called my aunt to come get Benjamin so that he would not get sick...by Saturday night I was a mess -- feeling very bad. Sunday morning I woke up, got undressed to take a shower hoping it would make me feel a little better, and guess what I saw?! Little red spots...EVERYWHERE!! I went to our family doctor (who is a friend and would see me on a Sunday), and he took one look and said, "It is definitely viral...you need to call your OB and go see a dermatologist". At this point I am an emotional mess...I miss my baby boy (who I only intended on sending away for a day or so), and I am VERY worried about baby Mary Elizabeth. Long story short (and 4 dermatologists later), I have chicken pox!!! How I got it is still a mystery. I have been quarantined for days now, because it is very contagious...and I may be losing my mind with loneliness, horrible red spots and missing my sweet baby (who I have not seen in 4 days!!!). Seth came home a day early (on his birthday) to care for me yesterday. It has been nice to finally have someone here with me, but I hate that his 30th birthday has turned out this way. Needless to say, I am hoping for an end to this week.
