The Good, The Bad, And The Very Ugly

Way back in October, we set out on a trip to Greensboro, North Carolina to visit my cousin Krista with some other friends. 
That was good.
On Saturday morning, we went to Hunter's football game. Parker and Claire danced with the cheerleaders out on the field.  That was also good.

Sometime during the ballgame I started to feel a little queasy.  That was bad.  Then we went to McDonald's for lunch and went back to Krista's house.  As the day went on, I just felt awful.  That was very, very bad.  By dinner, I was downright sick.

At some point I ceased taking pictures because I was sick as a dog and went to bed.  You might think it couldn't get much worse than that, but you would be wrong.  Dead wrong.  Right after Parker went to bed, he got sick.  VERY, VERY SICK.  That is where the ugly came into the picture.  I am here to tell you that there in nothing worse than being sick at SOMEONE ELSE'S house while also taking care of a VERY sick child at SOMEONE ELSE'S house (without any help because Brian wasn't with us on the trip).  Needless to say, we were up all night. 

Thank goodness there are no pictures of me because speaking of ugly....

I felt so bad that I didn't get to visit with them that much and we spread germs all over the house! While there's no way you could have convinced me at 4:30 am that night/morning that survival was a possibility, we did in fact survive.  And that my friends, was good.

Until the following Wednesday when Claire got sick.

The End
