My dreams of a medicine-free pregnancy die, as Mr. Poon and I both get really, really ill. I refuse the hard stuff and only take what’s necessary to get my fever down and be able to breathe!
Mr. P got sick first and, as soon as he was symptomatic, he volunteered to sleep on the pull-out sofa bed in the office. Then, I got sick and when we went to the doctor, we found out that we had different stuff! Figuring we could still catch each other’s junk, the quarantine-style sleeping arrangement continued for several days.
Can I just say that there is no fun to be had when both spouses are sick! Usually, one can take care of the other. It’s a real bummer to both be hungry and realize there’s no one to make any food.
Luckily, one of our teammates currently lives in our guest bedroom. Even better for us, he cooks! He made us some chicken soup and definitely was a blessing during this time!
