I have been really, really sick the past 4 days. DH drove me to the emergency room on Friday night and I spent the night there. Poor DH and DD stayed up all night waiting for me in the waiting room. Early Saturday morning, I was released from the hospital. I slept probably 80% of the weekend away. I could not move because I was in a lot of pain, so DH took care of me and DD the whole weekend. He actually ended up taking Monday off so that he can drive DD to school, pick her up, and also take me to the hospital for a follow up doctor's appointment. While I was so sick, I came to a few conclusions.
1. When we are old, I hope to be healthier than DH. Don't get me wrong, he did a great job taking care of me & DD. I just think I am better at it than he is. That's why I am the mom, right?!
2. DD really is an awesome kid! She was being unbelievably good the entire time I was in bed with pain. DH had to go back to work today, and I still haven't fully recovered, so poor DD has been stuck at home all day. She spent the better part of morning playing with her doll house all by herself. And how she is watching tv in her room while I lay in bed trying to get better.
3. I actally like being the person taking care of my family. While I try to recover, I actually miss doing things for them-- this really surprised me!
4. I need to be nicer to myself. As much as I love spending money on DD, I need to spend a little time and money on myself too.
I hope to never get this sick again & I can't wait to be all better so I can take DD places! My Tarina Tarantiano skull necklace came last night. I can't wait to wear it out!
