Swine Flu BOOOOOOOOOOOO
Cody called me yesterday from work informing me that he thought he had the swine flu! GREAT! I was upset because I was worried about missing our Utah trip. Obviously we couldn't get on a plane and fly to Utah Saturday if we were sick. SO I was upset but whatever. THEN I had a million things I needed to do and Cody being sick and needing me to go get him medicine and what not, just added to it. I ran and got us all lunch and then took the kids to Walmart to pick up a few things. I go to the pharmacy to drop off the prescription and it is closed until 2 for lunch. PERFECT! I wanted to be back by two to get the kids down for naps. Kayla was already fussy and tired. She has FIVE teeth coming in all at once and her mouth hurts. When I found out we might all be sick I decided not to give her any medicine for her teeth just to make sure she wasn't getting a fever. It was NOT fun. I got home and remembered I forgot to get Cody something to eat. I put the kids down for naps went to the store to drop off his prescription ( at another store ) and then got him Mcdonald's and came home. Tyler had pooped...Fantastic! I change him leave again to go get me something to drink because my throat was bothering me a little and then go pick up his medicine. I am informed that his drugs cost 40 dollars! OUCH! And that is just for 10 pills. THEN I hear that Fort Hood is on lock down because some crazy person is running around shooting people! WHAT? What is wrong with people. You don't want to live any more then kill yourself but do the world a favor and don't go around killing innocent people. So on my way BACK into the house from getting Cody's drugs I hear Kayla start to scream. NO BREAK AT ALL FOR ME TODAY! In fact, it was more work then usual. The crazy thing about it, I was thankful Cody had gotten the swine flu and was at home safe in our bed and not on Fort Hood where he had been right before the shooting and should have been when the shooting occurred. Would he have been killed, not likely. Would he have been injured or shot at?....not likely. But I didn't have to worry about it and he didn't have to be stuck there until 8 that night while the police sorted everything out. You count your blessing where ever they come and for me yesterday, I was thankful for the swine flu for keeping Cody "Safe"
