I'm alive.


The good Lord above graciously gave me Christmas day before dropping what we now believe to be H1N1 in my stocking later that night. I was really ticked too because instead of bringing me "Edward Cullen" in my stocking, I got this garb. What - is - up - with - that???

All of you poor people who have experienced H1N1 already, you'll know what I mean when I say that my body aches all over - all the way down to my teeth. I have been in bed since Friday late afternoon with no end in sight. My fevers have ranged anywhere from 103 to 101. There is no rhyme or reason to the ups and downs. Kenidi...yeap...she is now pushing a week of fevers too. Hers is now running in the low 99's but unfortunately it is still lingering. We are soooooooooo over this. Kenidi has been back to the doctor for a 2nd time already. If her fever doesn't break and stay gone for good, we are going to have to take her back again. It's a mess over here. We. are. at. war.

War with this nasty bug that has no mercy on anyone. No remorse. No guilt. Just all out war with guns blazing. I've never experienced anything like it in my life. Never. Brent is now complaining of a scratchy throat and sluggish feelings. I think I heard him mention something about wanting to go to bed by 6pm tonight. This might be his pay backs though for looking at me as I laid in bed the other night looking like death warmed over and then muttering the words..."Ang, it's mind over matter babe." Yeah...needless to say...I told him where he could stick his "mind over matter theory" and let him know that I'd remind him of it when he was laying on his death bed here in a couple of days with the same thing Kenidi and I have. This is what happens when you are married to a man who treats daily life events like a business. As though an entrepreneur would when they embark on a new uphill battle. Just mind over matter babe. Just mind over matter. Yeah...whatEVAH!

All of this comes in the wake of me making a huge mistake by helping my mom set up a facebook account. I am ill as ill gets and have to stumble upon her page yesterday and today where she is proceeding to steal photos from me and add them to her page. "Unapproved" photos at that. know the kind. The kind we disown our friends for taking and then tagging us. Yup...that kind. I don't mind her posting pictures on her page of me but she best let me approve them first. I had to go in and delete the photo off her page twice now. I warned her that if I had to do it a third time that I was going to take "my computer" out of the Bonita house where she is staying and thus she will no longer have access to the Internet there period. LOL! See...she is using one of our old computers that has old pictures on it from things I've uploaded. Now she has some bidding war attempt going on over on facebook for those feeling the need to see the "said photographs." YAY! Even my new neighbor friend is in on it. (Hi Lorrie!) Ha ha! What a joy as I'm struggling to even muster the strength to walk to my shower let alone have to watch facebook like a hawk because my Mom is on there having a hay day with my wretched images. BLAH!

In the end, I'm just asking for prayers. Prayers to help us overcome this nasty ordeal and prayers that Brennen won't end up with it now too. So far he is still trucking along. I can't bare the thought of him having to endure this as well. I'm also just praying that Kenidi can kick this and be done with it. The fever especially due to her epilepsy. Fevers bring on seizures. We can't have any extra of those. Just can't!

In the meantime, I'm jealous of the sunshine and beautiful swaying palm trees that I can see out my bedroom windows/door. It all makes me even more sick to know I'm missing all of that outdoor beauty. Not only that but it is the kids Christmas break. They are off school and we've been cooped up since last Monday basically. So not fun. Again, please just send a few prayers our way, will ya? I hope to be back to our regular scheduled programming very soon. Figured I'd better post an update though just to let ya'll know we are breathing. :) I was beginning to get emails from some of you asking where we went. Sorry. We are still here. I promise. Hope all of you had a spectacular Christmas.

Much love, Angie

Ahhhhh, now I feel bad. I will bring you dinner and steal Brennen away, so he doesn't get sick. He is the only smart one, he has a doctor's mask. He has been playing the x-box game since Christmas Morning anyway. He has barly left the room. I don't know what to do for you honey, except stay off Facebook, so you don't have to sweat over me selling photo's of you. Do you remember that one of you on the toilet when you were about 5 years old, you don't happen to have that on the computer do you? (just kidding) Calm down, I will behave, I promise. What would you like for Dinner?

Poor thing. Get better.

I had to laugh a big belly laugh when I read your hubby's comment about mind over matter. Mine tells me the same thing and it makes me wanna kick him in the jimmie everytime! annoying! I ended up getting the flu (not sure which one, but either way it sucked) when we were in Hawaii a couple weeks ago. Spent half of the vacation in bed or wishing I was in bed. The husband kept saying stuff about how he wasn't getting sick because he wouldn't let himself. Whatever. Well, guess who ended up sick the last day of the trip and several more days after he got home??!! Yep, that's right. I should feel bad about the smirk on my face, but truth be told, I don't. Not one single bit. Mind over matter. Hogwash! And I'm so sorry but if Edward wasn't in my stocking, it would hardly be fair for Santa to bring you a slice of that sweet young thing! I am finally getting to see New Moon on Wednesday. I live in rural Alaska and it's just getting here. I am hardly able to wait. I guess I'll just have to put my mind over matter......hahahahaha!

Feel better sweetheart!

Hi Angie,

Sorry to hear you both are so sick! We had it here too a few months ago. First my 17 yo tested positive for it (and supposedly earned the title "first positive case at our high school"), then I got sick, but didn't get tested. Victoria only got the cough part and Dennis didn't get sick at all. I was very surprised when Jordan tested positive as she never had a fever that we knew of.

I know you said Kenidi was given Tamiflu, but did they give it to all of you once she tested positive? That is what they did with us. and with other families that I know. Even though I did get sick, it lessened the

Sending Get Well vibes your way!!
