Trust me, you don't want any pix of this...
I have been so, so sick. It actually started on 12/28 but by the 1/1/09 I was pretty much non functioning. The next 4 days are a blur. I went from bed to couch to bed and that was about it. Finally, yesterday my mom took me to the local ER. You have to understand, I don't DO doctor's, ever. The last time I went to a doctor that wasn't adoption-physical related was about 12 yrs ago when I fell and sprained my foot so bad that the entire thing from toe to ankle, sole to top turned black from bruising --and that was after 3 days and because Bobby convinced me it must be broken. BTW, it wasn't, I would have been fine without the trip to the doctor, right? Before that it was when my kids were born, before that it was when I was 8. I always took my kids to the doctor when they needed to go but I just didn't need to go. I'd get sick then I'd get better. Not this time.
When I went to the ER I figured they'd say, "You're sick, rest, drink fluids." Ummm, no. "Pneumonia and a sinus infection" is what they said. Not nice. But, after a big bag of IV fluids and a littler bag of IV antibiotics, I feel almost like a human being! I'm looking at a computer screen and typing, those are two things I wasn't even remotely capable of doing yesterday.
On to better news, Georgie is turning 1 tomorrow!!!! Hopefully I'll feel able to go out tomorrow--I'm planning on it.
