Somebody Call the Wah-mbulance

I am down for the count. Can barely type. I am SO ach-ey, even my eyeballs hurt ... my bones are sore. (Great. I have cancer too.)

It's not cancer ... just the flu. I haven't felt this sick since the '98 Oscars, when I was even too ill to laugh at Gwynth Paltrows weepy acceptance speech.

And, I have been alone with the boys all weekend, Mr TC is down in Sydney. And, Mr TC is due for a round of chemo-fucking-therapy tomorrow. GREAT. Someone needs to take us out the back of the barn and put us out of our miseries. I can literally hardly get off the couch to feed Monkey, and Tiger is actually crying from boredom. I simply cannot feel like this. It's out of the question. I would usually ride it out, but I'm going to ask to go on antibiotics, because if Mr TC catches it while he's on chemo, it's really dangerous. Lucky I'm too crook to drive to the freaking doctor.


So, I will be away from my computer for a while. Thanks, thanks THANKS SO MUCH, for the utterly amazing comments I have recieved lately. I haven't even checked anyone's blog, I feel so bloody guilty ... but when I am better I will belatedly do the IComLeavWe, and also check in on my extraordinary peeps.

Thank FUCK I was just getting sick last week, and it wasn't depression.

Ah crap TC,

The flu blows.

You do know antibiotics don't help, though, right? ;)

Has Mr TC had a fluvaccine? Just a thought.

Hope you feel so much better soon,



Stacie said...

Aww, I hope you feel better soon. It sucks to be sick!

Vee said...

Oh Crap TC, that sucks!
I hope it doesn't hang around too long and no one else in the family gets it. It is bloody every where this winter!.

Get that fire going and keep warm.
Take care xx

The flu? Boo! Aren't there sick days for Mommies?

I'm so sorry you're sick, TC. I am bringing you soup and taking care of your kids and doing your laundry in spirit. Wish I could do it for real. Hang in there.

Amanda said...

I'm so sorry you're sick. :-( I hope it's over quickly. I'm with MrsSpock, where's a good sick-day-for-Mommy when you need one?

Now you know how I felt! Seriously, take good care of you. This flu is not a nice one - as you are finding out! I know this is not a good time to get sick, but use this as an excuse to put your feet up, relax as much as you can. Maybe call in some help? Your sisters sound wonderful.

Oh. And expect to be teary and emotional - I bawled for half an hour on the couch cos hubby said something the wrong way!

Thinking of you sweetie. Lots of liquids, lots of rest.

Read your post re your mother. Would really really like to slap her for you. But you know something? Living well is the best revenge :-)


Diana said...

Boo!! Hope you feel better soon!

tobacco brunette said...

I can't believe you have the flu on top of everything else. You poor woman - maybe it's time to call in a temporary nanny for help. Do they have those?

Feel better soon. You'll be missed!

Wordgirl said...

Oh TC,

Please, please take care of yourself -- I just got back into town and one of the very first things I had to do was to check in on you.

I have so much to say...I just read your earlier post --perhaps I'll put it in a real old fashioned letter!



Kristin said...

Oh no...that sucks. Why is it we get sick just when we have the most to deal with?

BTW, I read your last post and I am so sorry you have that to deal with also.

Finally, I love that you said Wah-mbulance...we use that all the time...LOL.

Feel better soon.

nancy said...


That sucks.

I'd totally come over and take care of you. Oh yeah, I forgot, I have declared a personal hatred to an entire continent due to a boy who didn't even break my heart. He just REALLY pissed me off. heh. I'll tell you the story sometime. But for now - get better!

Poor TC! The flu sucks dead bears. Can definitely make you wish you had cancer instead. I hope you are feeling better soon!

PS~ Don't worry about my blog...very boring at out house these days. Baby cries, we cry, lather, rinse repeat. Read someone interesting.
