I felt that on Monday...ended up taking Claritin on Tuesday, just in case it was allergies (that's what my boy's problem was)...and wouldn't you know it, I felt a ton better on Wednesday! I hope you feel better soon!

AW Joanne, I am so sorry!! Praying for you to get well quickly.
With love,


Yuck. Hugs to help you feel better!
Russell has it and it was the same minute he felt fine, the next he turned to me and said, "uh oh" and was up most of the night trying to breathe, not cough, blow his nose, etc.
Feel better...


Awww... I am sorry Joanne. I hope and pray that you feel better soon. Loads of good luck for Audrey's Play. Do let us know how it goes.

Sending you Smiles and Wishes

I am so sorry you've caught the creeping crud. To me, it always feels worse to catch something like this in the spring than it would have back in the cold, winter months. I'm glad things went well for your MOPS talk despite not feeling well.

Lay low (if possible) for the next few days and I pray you'll be well soon!

Blessings! Dawn

You are in my prayers. Have fun with your family tonight at your daughter's play!!


Ugh, so sorry you're not feeling well. It hit me Sunday afternoon, and I spent all day Monday in bed. Thankfully, it was short-lived and I felt well enough to do all the stuff I had to do on Tuesday. It's so hard this time of year because we're SO busy, and because you just don't expect to get sick in M-a-y! Hang in there. I'll pray you feel like yourself again soon.


You poor thing! I hope it's all better soon.

Good luck to Audrey!



I hope the crud leaves you as quickly as it arrived...sometimes it feels like we moms are magnets for the bugs that float around...I felt this way a lot this year prayers are upon you!

I pray that your Mother's Day will be a day filled with rest and pampering...

Get well soon! Being sick stinks!

Have fun at the play! I hope you feel better soon! Prayed for you just now.
