Well, when it rains, it pours! D is sick with a massive bacterial sinus infection. Her face feels like someone punched her, it’s swollen, her head aches, and she has a red mark under her left eye. Poor little pumpkin 😦
It started Friday night and we got her into the doctor yesterday. She’s on an antibiotic and I really hope she feels better soon. She’s a tough cookie and normally doesn’t complain, so when I asked her what her pain was on a scale of 1 to 10, and she replied “35”, I knew it was BAD. She also stayed in bed all weekend, which is SO not like her.
While she was in bed, I spent time consulting Dr. Google, and let me just say that people are right when they tell you to NEVER do that! Oh. my. goodness. I found everything from “she’ll be fine”, to “holy crap! she’s going to DIE!” When she would emerge from the bedroom periodically, the conversation went like this:
Me: Do you have body aches and a fever?
D: No fever, but I do have body aches.
M: Is your headache pain all on one side?
M: Great! You have a flesh eating infection and it’s in your brain. Let’s go to the ER!
Me: Do you have the worst headache in your life?
D: It’s pretty bad.
Me: Great! You are having a brain aneurism, get in the car!
We did not end up going to the ER. She HATES the ER. I can’t blame her, but I was getting pretty scared there for a while.
In the meantime, it was Easter, so Big D and I went down to my parents for dinner on Sunday and left her home. We actually had a fun time! When I made a comment about Big D leaving the nest, my brother asked me what I was going to do when he’s gone, and I replied with “have fun with my wife”. Big D started laughing and I thought, “oh shit, he knows what I’m saying”, but then he said, “Yeah, they’re going to get in their pj’s by 2:30 instead of 5:00!” (Haha! If he only knew how little pj’s we will be wearing when he leaves!) But I responded with, “Yup! I’m going to put them on before I even leave work!”
So that was our weekend in a nutshell. I should have taken the time to write the things I need to catch up on here (Mel’s challenge and Liz’s award) but as you can see, I was a little busy.
Hope your weekend was better than mine!
P.S. The strike is still ongoing. We will find out late Wednesday night or Thursday morning if they have to a resolution. Let’s hope they do soon!
