Well, I am having on of those weeks. You know the ones in which nothing goes right, but nothing goes completely wrong either. It’s just been a week requiring patience. I’ve been working some more on the yard. I’ve gotten quite a bit done,although, if the brush trimmer could make my life any easier I’d be so appreciative. I’ve replaced all the parts on it at least once since I started my Brush Crusade. It’s not working right now, I have to go back to Home Depot AGAIN, but I won’t get into all that.
Last Tuesday night I tossed and turned all night with a fever.
Wednesday I suffered through my clinical day with a nagging tickle cough.
Thursday I was diagnosed with Bronchitis. The doctor told me to call if it hadn’t gone away in 2-3 days. I was not getting better but I figured I would finish my antibiotic course before calling. I finished yesterday and today I was not feeling good at all.
In fact, I went to lecture and after 30 minutes I felt achy, hot/cold and overall crappy. So, I left. Called the doctor. He put me on an inhaler and gave me more cough medicine.
OK, now that’s what’s going on with me. Now I’ll tell you about Z. For the past week and a half he’s been lethargic. Doesn’t play outside like he normally does, decreased appetite, no fever, but he has the “sick eyes” Moms know and love (insert sarcasm). Yesterday he started complaining of a sharp pain in his tummy. This morning he has had no appetite. So, I called the doctor, we will go in today at 1530, I’ll update you then. I’m going to push for a Lyme Titer. And hopefully he’ll put him on antibiotics while we wait for the results. Although, I don’t put a lot of faith in those tests. After all, last summer B had one done, it came back negative and 3 weeks later he was in the hospital with Lyme Meningitis. So, anyway, here’s hoping the doc is generous with the antibiotics.
And last but not least. There’s B. Now, remember all the yard work I told you I’ve been doing? Well, of course, I’ve recruited the boys to help haul off the brush as I trim it all down. Well, I didn’t think there was anything yucky in the brush, but apparently, B found something.
He will be going to the doctor with Z. I’m thinking poison ivy although, there are no blisters. He developed this rash yesterday. It started off as flat red blotches, not itchy. This morning the rash is raised, but it’s still not itchy. I didn’t think it was poison ivy at first but the more time goes on the more I wonder.
So, nobody is feeling all that great here, well, except for C. He’s doing great. Let’s hope he stays healthy.
