[Comments] (2) Double Whammy: I haven't updated in so long, but I guess I better get back into the habit. We spent Christmas in AZ for a very long time. I was sick with something for all but the first 2 1/2 days of the trip. I lost my voice completely for 2 days and could barely talk a few days before and after. Christmas eve was very pitiful and miserable for me, lying on a blow-up mattress in the hallway upstairs b/c Lily was asleep in our room, trying to get some rest amongst the uproar of laughter coming from downstairs.

Back from AZ I think I got about 3 days in between illnesses. I guess my immune system was shot from the strep throat- or whatever it was?, because yesterday I spent praying to the porcelain god. I couldn't even keep Sprite down. However I feel better today with my Gatorade and Saltines, resting in bed. The timing for this stomach flu is bad because Aaron and I are housesitting for my mom and Ben while they attend a family reunion in Tennessee. Aaron is having to take up some slack, but Lily is being very sensitive because this morning she snuggled in bed with me and took a 2-hour nap with me. Even though I am not throwing up still, I was careful not to get too close to her.

I'll tell you what though, throwing up again like that did not make me want to think about getting pregnant anytime soon and going through all that again. I've put in my time and I really hope that my turn to get sick won't come up for another couple years.

Poor sissy. Hope you're feeling better. Thanks for being such a great hostess!

I spent Christmas sick too (puking, not strep). Not fun. But I didn't gain the weight I usually would :)
