me and my pearl izumi's went up mt timpanogos via aspen grove in the morning. it was quite fabulous. when i got home and cleaned up, i got food ready and the cutie pies showed up! only they had boogery noses and jules was sick. and she got sicker. we played and had ice cream cones and did fireworks. and jules got sicker and spent all day on saturday in bed. i made her smoothies and tea and oatmeal. lehua and the kids and i went got lots of fruits and veggies to snack on and a plastic pool and spent the entire day in my backyard. micah and noble have this really fun sprinkler attachment that was a total hit. then they left before the sun came up on sunday morning:(
after church i went up alexander basin in millcreek canyon and i felt like i had zero energy and like i was trying way harder than i should have to. i came home and then...
gus got stung by a wasp and almost died and i got julee's sickness.
we had to do an epi pen on him. o took him to an emergency vet in the middle of the night and she didn't know anything about bulldogs and wouldn't listen to owen. so he continued to be swollen, have breathing problems and vomit literally all night long and most of the morning until we could get him to bulldog vet who filled him up with steroids and took care of him. we had to keep a really close eye on him, but he is out of the woods now and eating again. i have washed nine thousand barf covered rags and towels. seriously, nine thousand.
in the meantime i have fever, massive headache, eye pain, light sensitivity, joint pain, sore throat, neck and back pain, swollen lymph nodes, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite...not pretty my friends. still in my bed. went to the doctor today. i hate this. poor jules had to travel feeling like this. boo. is it strep or mono? i will find out in the next couple of days from my blood work. in the mean time, i can't swallow so no worries.
the second race of the solitude series is this saturday. i am sad. i doubt i can race? and my paid time off bank that i have slowly built back up at work is dwindling away as we speak. i really really really hope o doesn't get sick. cross your fingers.
keep on keepin on is what i always say!
ps mount timpanogos is totally amazing isn't it?!
