Sickness of 2011

Well the 2011 year has started of with....well sickness.

Thanks bloggy friends for all of the well wishes yesterday. I appreciated it very much.

I woke up Monday morning still convinced I had croup and I also had this weight in my chest, and was certain it was from all the mucus. And after having pneumonia and bronchitis before I decided I really didn't want any of that to linger.

So off to the doctors office I went. I found out after stepping on the scale. Which by the way, you are sick and there for some good medicine and hopefully a shot why do they feel the need to take your weight. I look at it like you already feel like crap why do they want you to feel worse by stepping on the scale.

Any way I stepped on the scale and realized I had lost another 2 lbs. and that was with a sweater on. So we will see come Thursday.

The nurse does her usual...why are you here? Really can't you hear me trying to talk? What have you been taking? OK just walk up the cold/sinus/phlegm isle at HEB and I have probably taken any and all of them since Saturday. Do you need a refill on any prescriptions? Nope just some new ones that will hopefully knock this crap out of my chest, head, and the rest of my body.

The nurse also does a strep test and says the doctor will be in to see you in a minute.

I love my doctors office when they a minute they mean a minute. When they say a moment they mean about 10 minutes.

In walks Gina. Yes I call my doctor by her first name. I like to think we are the best of friends that only see each other twice maybe three times a year but yet we always pick up where we left off.

Really I had just seen her a few weeks before when Hubs had some tests run and I went with him. But I really do think of her as a friend.

I also really want to put something about drugs and fix but who knows what kind of people that would attract and well lets just drop it and move on.

Bottom line. No strep. No croup. Just one nasty throat infection. And a mild sinus infection. Oh and VERY STRICT instructions on NO TALKING!

Ummmmm, HELLO... does she forget I have family, boys I might add. And I have job where I do have to talk, not all day but it is a necessity every now and then. Maybe this is why this post is so long. I can't talk and I have sooooo much to say, but can't.

So two shots and two prescriptions later I was on my way to Walgreen's. 10 minutes later I was on my way home and 10 minutes after that I was asleep in the recliner.

And on the agenda for tomorrow more of the same. Can't go back till Wednesday. I guess this throat thing has its perks.

And the boys are loving it. All three of them. No talking means no arguing, yelling, and giving orders.

Ahhh yes this throat thing does have it's perks, no warnings just a good old fashion paddling when they don't do what they are supposed to.

Y'all have a great day I'm off for my nap!

SO not fun! I'm sorry it hasn't gotten better yet! I took a Nyquil Cold & Flu last night and actually slept until a few minutes before my alarm went off! But I can't breathe with my mouth closed. I think I'll be napping today, too!

Oh no! I am so sad you are so sick! I hope you are feeling much better today! Kaish and I are from school and work today because of an ice storm. This is Kaishon's second day off in a row and he is so excited : )
