I don't think I'll get that luxury of sleeping my sickness off and having food brought to me with no other interruptions until our kids are grown and out of the house, HA!
I have been extremely lucky to say I've been so sick that I just needed to lay around all day, twice, since Mia was born. Or I can only remember 2 times at the moment :) The first time Mia was just a few months old so she just played on the floor while I watched her from the couch, then she took the longest nap ever, which meant I took the longest nap ever! She was such an angel baby until Eric could come home from work and take over.
The second time was only a few months ago. I tried making breakfast for Mia and barely got the food on her plate. After that I literally turned on the TV, prayed Mia wouldn't get into too much trouble, and fell asleep on the couch. HA! Mia was, once again, an angel! She stayed right next to the couch playing with toys and watching TV. She went down for her nap and I got to sleep some more! To Eric's credit, he came home as soon as he could and took over dinner and bedtime! But really, no sick days to cover when the mom is sick? Someone really should make that a thing. To save the sanity of the sick spouse at home, to save the paycheck of the hard working spouse who can't afford to take a random day off, and to probably save the life of the child who is left to fend for him/herself, HA!
Obviously I am no help today because other than TV and prayer, I got nothin'!
