Ooooo it STINGS!!!!

I feel like I've either a: swallowed a gallon of acid b: grown fever blisters in my throat or c: both. I've tried everything except straight tequila to ease the pain, to no avail... *sigh*

Well, Ally still hasn't gone to school. I don't know whether I should send her tomorrow or not, either. She still looks weird in her eyeballs, and just lays around on the couch or in my bed the entire day and won't eat, and barely drinks. She didn't seem to be running a fever today, so that is an improvement. I just hate her missing a whole week of school.

As for Trey - if he isn't better by tomorrow I guess I'll call the pediatrician and see if there is anything we should be doing besides feeding him Ibuprofen and trying to force liquids. He hasn't eaten a meal since Saturday, but he's finally started ASKING for drinks today, which is either a good sign, or an indicator that he's dehydrated. He has diarrhea but its not often or anything - just 1-2x/day. (He'd love to know I'm discussing his poop online HAHA!!) He just is so lifeless, and not himself. He was still running a 100-101 fever today on and off. He did eat some rice for lunch, so that was definitely an improvement.

Syd went to school today and happily brought home Ally's Valentine's Day goody bag.

I'm FEELING better, but my lungs are heavy and I sound like I swallowed a St. Bernard (probably the same time I swallowed the acid I previously mentioned.) I went and bought myself some Robitussin though - not the cough kind, but the expectorant/chest/nasal decongestant. It tastes worse than crap, and I can't tell if it's working, but I'm gonna pretend like it is. (It tastes so bad that, in fact, that I gave Ally some and she gagged three times, then threw up about 6 min later.)

I got a comment on the lyrics in my header, and thought I would share the song with you all... you know, to end on a happy note and stuff. :-)

(Oh, and hey Dawn, I found this post from back in September where I mentioned a bunch of songs I remembered from High School... lol)

Anyway, get to the music already, JEEEEZ!!!! (and yes, this song IS my ringtone on my phone lol... oh oh oh and when people call me they hear "Ring of Fire" while waiting for me to answer - cuz I'm cool like that hehehe)

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence


Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Cant you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence
