The Life and Brief Death of laura b.

Oh my.  What a week it has been.  Last Tuesday, I was sick.  Wednesday and Thursday,  I felt fine.  Friday, I awoke in pain about 6am and spent the next 24 hours thinking I might die.  Seriously.  It is probably better left unshared, but I was hovering between feeling nearly unconscious and in excrutiating pain.  By Saturday, when I was supposed to work again, I felt somewhat better, but knew I couldn't work.  And let me tell you, calling in on a Saturday is a MAJOR production.  But I stayed semi-comatose for another day.  By Sunday morning I felt okay, got up and about, even ATE a little...that was exciting and frightening.  Today I am back at work and feeling tired, but basically fine. 

Not to make a big deal of my virus or whatever, but I just seldom get sick and this was soooo awful!  Join me in hoping that it is gone forever.  Or at least for a very long time.

As a bonus for coming back to work today, at lunchtime I went to join the family party at Chuck E. Cheese for Love Bug's 3rd birthday (which is actually tomorrow).  Why they had a party on a Monday afternoon, and why so many people in the family could show up, remains a mystery :-) 
Here us a blurry action shot. You can see the back of Miss Personality, as she "helps" Love Bug with her gifts.
You can see Love Bug sporting some classy specs and hugging a box that has something Dora in it.
And you can see a bit of Little Prince sucking frosting off of his fingers. Awesome party, right?

Anyway, I am glad to be back amongst the living and promise to whip around to everyone's blog to make sure I haven't missed anything.  Onward!

Sounds like the bug that's been floating around out here too. Maybe even the one I had a couple weeks ago. Boy does it suck! Super glad you're feeling better!

I hope you're feeling better and the badness never comes back.

Happy Birthday, Love Bug!

Thanks, all of you. I am feeling almost 100%.
Thank you for the b-day wishes for Love Bug too. She has been very excited the past couple of days about being the birthday girl.

being sick is the worst, especially when it's not just fatigue but pain. Seems like you are back up and running, thank goodness!!!!
