2 out of 3 sick

Let me start by saying that Luis was able to make it home on Saturday morning at 3:30 am and we had a nice relaxing weekend!

This morning he took the boys to school and was off to GA again. By 7:00 am I already had a call from Joey telling me he was not feeling well. I had crucial reports that needed to be sent out today and it was nearly impossible to make an exit from the office. Luis was already on his way to GA and he needed to be there by a certain time this afternoon, so it was impossible for him to turn back as it would have put him out at least 2 hours!

Luckily my sister came to the rescue and was able to go pick him up from school. I was extremely grateful for this as she lives 30 minutes away from his school. She made him some soup and got him to bed. He seems to be coming down with the flu. Yesterday he was not feeling well and this morning I told him to stay home if he needed to. But he will not miss school for nothing! He is even worried because his first swimming match is supposed to be tomorrow and he does not want to miss it! But the truth is that he is sick and he is in not condition to go to his swim match. He told me he did not want to let his team down.

At 11:00 am I receive a call from the boys elementary school. Little Luis was in the nurse's office with a bad stomach ache. I called my sister to see where she was and she told me she was still at my house getting Joey settled in. I asked her if she could do me another favor and go pick up little Luis!

I made my way to my boss's office and she knew by the look in my face that something was wrong! I explained that 2 out of 3 of my boys where sick and that I needed to go home. THANK GOD she was able to understand. As if if was not enough that I have been getting into to work late all of last week and this week due to the fact that Luis is out of town and I am riding solo with the kids! She was very sweet about it and told me that it was OK for me to go home and not to come in tomorrow if the boys are still sick.

These past week was hard without Luis taking the boys to school. I really hope they get better and that Mickey does not catch the bug that the other two have. If not I am not sure I can survive! Hoping for the best!

I swear to you - every single time my husband goes out of town, one of the kids gets sick, or something breaks down in the house. Never fails.
btw, my husband always gets mistaken for a wrestler - I'm not kidding. It is usually Stone Cold though...
