10-Day Update

I'm trying to find my way back....after

  • one 24-hr stomach virus
  • immediately followed by fever, chills, aches, pains, etc.
  • one trip to Immediate Care Center where they tell me it's something "viral"
  • in the meantime, 7 yr. old comes down with same symptoms, goes to the dr., it's the flu
  • 14 yr. old also sees dr, he has ear infection
  • my "viral" thing worsens, I drive myself to the dr. when I had no business driving, almost blacking out several times
  • diagnosis: bronchitis and double ear infections causing me major temporary hearing loss (thank goodness for closed captioned tv)
  • Now, 3 dr. visits, one shot, 7 prescriptions @ $130, $110 in c0-pays, and many days in bed, we are finally feeling a few signs of life
  • and, you don't even want to know how bad my laundry is or how bad my house looks!

Oh, that list is just six ways of wrong, sister. Glad you're all feeling better. Stay well!

Now that Spring seems to be here I hope that all your ills will be cured. No fun being sick when the sun shines.

Oh girl, I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better. Being sick is one thing, but being sick with 2 sick kids is a whole new ballgame. I hope the kids are feeling better as well. And, unlike most, at least you have an excuse for piles of laundry and a mess of a house.

I'm glad you're feeling better :)

If someone comes by, I may use the "I've been sick" line to excuse the messy house and piles of laundry.

Oh my - so sorry to hear that you all were sick. Glad you're feeling better! You were missed.
