Being thankful, and wishing I could help more.

If there’s one time of the year I dread, it’s winter. I’m the kind of gal who loves HOT Florida weather, and yet, I’m stuck here in Ohio with 3 inches of snow on the ground with whopping a whopping 19 degrees outside.

Needless to say, I’m your average Debbie-Downer this time of year.

So I usually sit inside and sulk, and clean to keep the boredom at bay.

Then I realize how blessed I am. …Continue Reading…

2009’s week from HELL.

Have you noticed something lately?

I haven’t really been around. On here, on Twitter and not really on Facebook either (besides the updates when I can). So here’s what’s been going on…

On December 13th M was diagnosed with pneumonia, which you already knew.

On December 14th, J was rushed from work in the afternoon to Miami Valley Hospital …Continue Reading…

And it keeps on gettin’ better!

Well, this morning started off a little, um, rocky.
J woke up with a nasty toothache. And now has to have an emergency root canal this afternoon. It’s one of his molars. And it’s going to cost us a lot. Bye- bye vacation money!

M woke up with crud. Lots and lots of crud. And a fever. She’s whiny and miserable. Poor kid. I’m flooding her system with oranges, orange juice, water and oatmeal.

I’m still sick, and feel worse than I did last night.
The best part of all of this though? Is that my normally-active M is cuddly because she is sick. I never get to sit and snuggle with my little girl because she’s always on the move.
It’s the little things, right?

So I leave you with this for today:

O Lord, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress. (Jeremiah 16:19)

Take THAT evil super bug!

I went to see my favorite doctor this morning. Bad news: I am still not doing very well. He gave me more meds for the pain, and gave me another round of the pro biotic (which I am thankful for, as I’ve heard really good things about it) let’s hope it’s working for me.
Take THAT evil super bug!

I am going off my Vanco on Wednesday to give my body a chance to prove itself. We will be looking for signs of the C Diff for the few days after. I do have a prescription, so at the slightest sign of C Diff rearing it’s ugly head, I can slam down some more Vanco.
Prepare to take THAT evil Super Bug!

In the mean time, I’ve found something that makes my tummy very, very happy. Green tea! I know, crazy, but I feel a lot better (about an hour) after drinking a mug of it.
Again- take THAT evil super bug!
I was told by my Medical Assistant T, to stay away from scary C Diff sites, as it just stresses me out (yeah, I know. J’s been harping at me for a long time about this) and causes more harm to my innards (okay, my words not hers, she’s much more eloquent). I’ll be taking a break from surfing the doom and gloom sites from now on.
So, take THAT evil super bug!
