Are ill Sad

yesterday I had really horrible flu-like symptoms.. I felt weak and drained, I had a cough and a sore throat, I had achey pains in my legs and my stomach and I kept feeling cold, then hot, then cold, then hot... It was really bad Sad

.Jenny wasn't quite as bad I don't think, because she was still eating and sleeping a lot. Today i'm feeling a lil better, it's now just a bad cold. Jen's fast asleep on me.. She won't settle anywhere else. Her breathing sounds clear and everything so I think she's getting better too.

Neither of us has been well for a while now.. Over christmas and new year I had a cold which she then caught.. And then I got a stomach bug, and then she got *another* cold, which made her vomit every night coz she couldn't get rid of all the nasty mucusy stuff.. And then last week I got yet another bug, which thankfully she didn't catch.. But now we both have this, and this is by far the worst of the lot.

I was so worried i'd have to take .Jenny to hospital, but she's a tough little girl.. And none of these bugs has affected her eating or sleeping, so i'm very relieved.

It sucks being ill though Sad
