Elmo and Oral Intake

Yesterday I took the girls and their girl scout troop to Sesame Place which was very exciting. I don't know who enjoys that place more, me or the kids. Although at that point I had already been awake for some 36 hours, I still stayed on top of my toes and under the water. What made this time extra special was the fact that now Gabby's old enough to go on the "big girl slides" without riding along with me. Now if only I could get my kids to gain enough courage to go on the coasters with me too.
Needless to say, last night after coming back from the long day in the sun, I was exhausted. But yet still needed to work. Thank god nothing major happened last night, cause I was working on half a brain minus 48 hours of sleep.
Now what usually happens after those marathons? I get sick! I woke up this afternoon feeling like crap. My throat is sore as hell and I just felt, well... yucky! Tonight I wanted so bad to take advantage of my night off and finally go meet the new guy in person for some much talked about action. I don't know why, but as much as I fight it, I cant get this guy out of my mind. I don't wanna fall head first again, but I don't want to seem like I'm being too distant either. Well... tonight when he called, he asked what I as up to and I explained that I was sick in bed tonight. I was expecting the usual, the "I'm just a guy, I don't care" attitude. However, I didn't get that. Instead I got a bit of our usual talks in addition to some instructions from my new favorite medic. Advising me of what I need and what I should take orally. ;)
But seriously... He sincerely cares. Our conversation was even followed up by an email wishing me well.

So I'd like to take this opportunity to thank him very much. Since it appears he's a keeper, I'm going to spend some of my time in bed thinking of a rather cool name for him on my blog.
