Sniffles, Sneezes, Sore Throat & Fevers.....

Billy has a sinus infection I'm sure of it & maybe the beginnings of strep throat (he always gets sick around this time of year), only problem is he hasn't had a chance to get to medical yet to be looked at...he called this morning & was still feeling terrible. He practiced every day last week for the "Retirement Ceremony" for General Zilmer, he said that it went really well. He wanted to be sure to looked like a Squared Away Marine so he bought new boots & wore his brand new Cammie's and Cover, gosh I wished I could have seen him. He thinks they have pictures & he was going to check with his buddies & get them posted...we'll see!!!

I'm just a little nervous about him being sick and being so far away, I wish I could get over to Okinawa & check on him myself...they have had 7 Marines quarantined with the Swine Flu, I thought it was for all of Camp Hansen but after checking with him this morning that count was for his barracks. I told him to wash everything down with those bleach wipes, he told me to stop fussing over him, he was a big guy now!!! That just melted my heart :)

And don't you know when one gets sick they both get sooner did I get off the phone with Billy & Nikky called, she is sick too :( runny nose, fever, chills, sore throat. If I didn't know better I'd swear they were trying to make me crazy! She too gets sick this time of year, they both have pretty low immune systems and tend to always have sore throats & sniffles, it was such fun when they were little. We actually had to lay them down on the kitchen floor hold their noses and pour the cough syrup & antibiotics down their throats and then they would jump up and shake & shiver & gag...KIDS!!!!


At least I can drop in on her & I just might make sure she is taking care of herself...

Sad day here @ the Platt house the Patriots lost & we were hopping mad, oh well you win some you lose some, isn't that what they say??? I'd rather win!

Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless!


  1. Well I sure hope that Billy gets better soon!! And Nikki too!! So far we have skipped out on the sickness around here but who knows...we may have it tomorrow!!! Have a great evening!! LYLAS!!

  2. Hope he feels better! He probably hears your voice in his head coaching him on what to do to get well:) They listen when Mama talks. Nikki is lucky that you can stop by and check on her. Have a blessed day.
