I have finally surfaced after 5 days snuggled under all my covers in my bedroom. The TV was on Marathon episodes of Blue Bloods, and I slept. Long sleeps, sometimes, filled with coughing, but in a way, also determined to kick this case of the flu.
Thankfully, today I rose, feeling somewhat better, fever finally gone, and the recovery begins.
Of course I am royally ticked off about being sick. Being sick when there is a new baby in the family really stinks. It means you are quite literally, the last person anyone wants to see. And truth be told, I wouldn’t want to get my grandchildren or their parents ill.
The most wonderful of news is that my daughter is feeling so much better and Quinn is just a joy. Savannah adores her brother and Mandy, Matt and their children have enjoyed the bonding time.
They are the center of their universe. As it should be, quite happily so.
