Well, not really. The alarm went off at 4:45 am. Which is the time that it always goes off. I normally roll over and shake Mr. Cowboy awake and then hit snooze. But this morning I woke him up and begged, "Will you please get up and get me some decongestant and some Advil?"
And like a good Mr. Cowboy, he rolled over and went back to sleep. He did end up getting up, 15 minutes later, and got me some medicine. I took it and tried to go back to sleep. Then just about 20 minutes later, I woke up with the worst stomach ache known to man kind!
I have thought, that in the past, I had had a strong tolerance for pain. I didn't even really think labor pains were that bad. But this.....this stomach ache was horrible. It was so bad that I was trembling and sweating like I had just ran a marathon!! I called to Mr. Cowboy for help!
He came in and felt my head and said, "You aren't hot, but man you are sweaty!" I had sweat dripping off my face, arms, and back! I am telling you, it was crazy! I begged Mr. Cowboy to stay home and take care of the kids because I was in NO way going to be able to get them up for school and then take care of a two year old all day.
So, he DID! Let me put this day down in the record books, Mr. Cowboy STAYED HOME FROM WORK to be with me!! He NEVER does this. I must have looked horrible! He even made me a doctor's appointment. We went where they tested me for the flu, which I didn't have.
The Doctor said I had a reaction to the Advil and decongestant medicine on an empty stomach. I will never, ever, ever, do that again! So, now I have been spoiled all day! Mr. Cowboy had made me lunch in bed and let me lay down under the warm covers and rest! It's been wonderful!! I feel a lot better too!
Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day! But Mr. Cowboy was so good to me today!! Maybe I should be ill every day.........
