Family Alive

Brian, Kristine, Analise, and Josiah Toone

Down for the count

20th May 2005

This is the blog Brian started last night:

“Let me preface this blog by saying that right now Kristine and I are competing to see who has the highest temperature and worst feeling tummy. Kristine’s temp is 100.6, but mine is at least 106. I’m sure Kristine will end up finishing this blog, since I feel far worse than she does.”

Well, I – Kristine – am finishing the blog a day later. Analise’s stomach bug found Brian and I both early Thursday morning. I got sick first, and as he was taking care of me, I was thinking, “I’m so glad Brian’s not sick…” Three hours later, he ran for the bathroom, and it was my turn to shakily wipe his brow and clean up. What a pair we were. Ag. I’ll spare you the details, except to say that it’s REALLY hard to both be sick and have a baby to take care of. Analise was a trooper, though, and she played by herself while Brian and I slept on the couch most of the day. Unfortunately for Brian, in the midst of his worst feeling moments, the secretary from the CS department at Samford called to tell him that the grades for the seniors in his class absolutely had to be submitted ASAP so that they could graduate this Saturday. So I got him settled in bed with a bucket, some juice, the laptop and a pile of pillows, and he managed to get it done.

Ok, I’m wiped out from just trying to get the house picked up and the huge pile of laundry… gonna go rest.

    My wife is so amazing. Words couldn’t possibly say enough to describe what an awesome wife, mate, and friend she is to me, and what an awesome mother she is to my baby girl so I’ll just stop right here 🙂

    I was wondering where you guys were (on the blog)!! How sad — hope you both get over it quickly! Too bad Analise can’t take care of YOU for a change…

    Yikes! Hope y’all are feelin’ better by now! Dan and Derek and I all had congested head colds at the same time and that was bad enought without the flu part of it too.

    LOVED the family pic by the way 🙂
