Happy Valentine's Day to us!!

Valentine's Day. The most "romantic" day of the year. And what do we end up with? A nice matching set of food poisoning courtesy of a chinese food place close to our house!

We put the babe to bed, Liam was at his dad's house, and Jeff went and picked up our order. We ate and watched a movie and all was good. Actually it stayed good until the following night around midnight when it hit me. H-e-l-l is all I can describe it as. I actually thought I was having a miscarriage it hurt so bad. Sweating and freezing and all that fun stuff. The really bad part for me lasted about 7 hours. I slept on the couch that night.

Right when it started to ease up a little, it hit Jeff. Oh I have never seen this man in so much pain and agony in our time together. He definitely got hit harder than I did, he was still in the thick of it when we decided to go to the hospital at 7 in the evening. We got hooked up to matching IV's, got some nausea medication and blood tests and "other" tests. At 11 they said I was good to go but Jeff needed to stay and get an x-ray. I would have stayed with him but his mom was here taking care of the boys and I knew she had to work in the morning so off I went. I do feel a little guilty but Jeff understands (I hope). He arrived home at about 4:30 in the morning. Oh, and he got to experience a couple Royal Alex crazies lol. They had to move him because he was in an actual room and they needed it for some guy who had a police escort. And of course the regular Sunday night drunks that end up there :)

We're still feeling a little shaky over here but it's getting better. And now we have matching wrist bands!!
