illness revisited

Yes, some days you have the need to re-open an old entry and add to the drama. Today is one such day. See, after I wrote my last post, I started feeling icky. So I left school early and came home. Where my throat started hurting really badly. Check temp. 102. Not too bad I suppose. Time for bed. So at 1:30 on a Wednesday afternoon I was firmly planted in my bed. Not to be seen from till Saturday at around 9:00 a.m. The worst was Thursday when I ran a 103 temp all day. Let me tell you…it wipes out your memory!!!! I have no memory of those three days. Except getting up and using the bathroom every once in awhile. I didn’t eat. Barely could drink. End result when I finally dragged myself (okay Donnie forced me to go) the doctor. Strep. Antibiotics, and liquid lidocain. Btw…have you ever had to swallow lidocain? If you have never had the pleasure before….AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS! The stuff is beyond disgusting. But I am all better now. The weekend went well though. I have a surprise for everyone. I’ll reveal it tonight. Some of you will definitely be in shock. And we are now connected online at home, so you can imagine how much more I’ll be on here. And last but not least pictures….I know it’s been forever, but I am working on getting some pictures up soon. Be on the look out!

illness running rampant

We have an outbreak of strep. Yep. Strep. Fun. Kenzie so loving decided to pass this through the house. I have now started with it, Donnie is feeling icky, and we are just waiting for the boys to get it. The girls are missing valentine’s stuff at school since they are uber contagious. Debi….if Sarah gets it, blame Kenzie! Just kidding.

We had Kenzie’s science fair last night, and yes I took her. She was so sad thinking she wouldn’t be able to attend. She didn’t win, but that’s okay. She knows that it isn’t the winning that counts but whether you have fun or not doing it. And reminded me of this. She got a certificate for participating, and a ribbon, which she wants to hang in her room. And she is already thinking about next year. My darling child!

Savanna’s evaluation went okay. They feel she is academically okay right now, but want her to see someone outside the school for her behavior at home. The zoning out in front of the t.v. one minute and then bouncing off the walls the next. And the immaturity. While I am on the topic of evaluations, might as well update Kenzie’s. We found a nuerologist who would see her. Normally she doesn’t she anyone younger than 10, but made an exception for Kenz. Dr. Carta has ordered an MRI (scheduled for the 5th of March) with sedation (which means tests at the hospital on the 2nd of March). Just to be safe. She also put Kenzie on a daily med to try and control the migraines. Helping a little. My u/s went good. The results were “very clear”. Which means I am now on the pill. WTF? Why in the world did I get my tubes tied, endure this crap that started afterwards, just to end up on the pill?! Oh, well. Better the pill than something else. We are still working on getting Braden seen. UGH! Soon. Hopefully soon.
