I was soo looking forward to getting Kevin for a long weekend!!! He even got his homework done so that we can spend the whole weekend with eachother! And that we did!!!
Kevin was sick during the week with the flu/head cold. Then on Friday I got it! But we still went out to Wendy's for a family date and noticed that Indee had a fever blister on her top lip. She also wouldnt eat anything but a vanilla frosty. The next morning we woke up and Indee had more of a rash. She also has eczema so we just thought it was that and lotioned her up.
But on Sunday the rash turned into blisters. We took her to Urgent care and the Dr acted as if he knew what it wasnt but you could totally tell that he didnt. He even said he didnt think it was contagious. He did send her to the hospital to do blood work and gave her an antiviral medicine.
But on Monday it was worse. So we took her back in and luckily her Dr was in that day! He said that he thinks it is Chicken pox and Shingles together but that he had never seen such a bad case so he decided to bring in another dr so that he could assess the situation as well. They both agreed with our dr's diagnoses and both said that they had never seen it so bad. Usually shingles only attacks one side of the body but in Indee's case it attacked both sides of her nervous system. It got so bad that she couldnt walk so he prescribed her a really strong pain killer. Luckily she hasnt itched any but they are scabbed over so I think she is over the contagious part but I am keeping her in today just to make sure. It was such a horrible thing to see and brought me to tears many times! She had it all over her mouth and down her throat so for two whole days she ate literally nothing, but luckily she would still sip a little bit of liquids.
And then to top it off Monday night Kevin got horribly sick! I thought it was the flu but it turns out it was food poisoning from my cooking him food. It was sooo awful! I have never seen anyone be so sick! Luckily he doesnt hold it against me and is still eating what I cook.
It was definately an emotional week for me to watch the ones I love most get so sick and to be so helpless in making them better!
Here are a few pictures of Indee. She wouldnt let us take very good ones because it was soo painful for her to even move...
We were so taken care of by our friends!!! Thank you all.... We got meals dropped off on our door steps... clorox wipes to make sanitizing easier and errands run for me!!! It was very touching seeing how much people cared for us and it helped me soooooo much!!!
