Feeling Good

First, thank you to everyone for the well wishes from my last post. I'm doing great and my doctor is soooooooooooooooo sweet and nice. I adore him. I have been going to him for years and years and he always listens to me, like really listens. That's unusual for this day and age. Anyway we are trying somethings and I will go back in a month. I am sure our ugly, terrible winter has played a part in this but I truly feel it goes a little deeper. I have to say I just feel better for recongnizing it and taking action. I have a little more perk in my step LOL!

My 14 year old either has Mono or Influenza. He has been VERY ill since Tuesday. He is my healthy one! He always bounces right back. He had strep throat about 5 years ago and was nearly fully recovered in 2 days. My oldest son, my daughter and I are down for around a week. So it has really concerned me how sick he has been. I took him to the doctor Thursday morning, after having symptoms for about a day and a half. Well it was too far into the sympotms to test or treat influenza and too soon to test or treat mono. NICE. So, if he isn't better by Monday back to the dr. we go for blood tests. I hope he's better. He's with his dad today, they were going to lay low and play video games together, just guy time :-) So, I haven't talked to him yet to see how he is. Last night, still crappy. *sigh*
I am so excited! Today and Tomorrow's high is going to be in the thirties!!!!!!!!! It is like a heat wave. And after 2 plus feet of snow and below zero temps in the past 2 weeks, I am ready for a heatwave. But low and behold, winter will be back on Monday with a snow and ice storm. There is an end in sight... next weekend is MARCH. So that means only one more month of really crappy weather and it has to turn around in April. Good news!




I leave you with a picture of my oldest son and one of his best friends watching wrestling and acting as dumb and as funny as humanly possible. They make me laugh EACH AND EVERDAY! I love them.

It's always nice when you can trust your doctor. I hope that you can get things under control. I agree about the weather though. It's certainly affected me differently this year.

oh wow, I hope he doesn't have mono. My daughter had it for 3 yrs! When she first got it she missed a month of school then went half days till summer. The rest of the time she was just sleepy and sluggish a lot, and sick often. Had to drop out of sports and do the easy PE class. I kept taking her back to the doc and every time they tested for it she still had it. She gets strep at the drop of a hat too. We're yanking her tonsils next month though. Yay! No worries, she's still a smarty mouth teenager. Mono and strep didn't slow her down by much!

Glad you are feeling better! Go breathe some of that healthy stuff on your boy!

I'm glad you have more perk in your step!!! I hope your son feels better soon. I'm counting down until April also.. I am so tired of the snow, ice, and freezing cold.. Come on summer!!!

I had influenza a couple years ago. I was so sick. I waited for a week because I was too busy still trying to take care of everyone else before I started passing out because my temp was so high and had to go into the ER. They did a nose swab (ouch!!!) and told me it was influenza A and that if I had come in within the first 4 days they could have given me something to help me get better faster but since I didn't there was nothing they could do. I was sick and literally in bed for 3 weeks. It was horrible!

I've been thinking about you, so I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better.

God bless.

Yuck!!! Mono is NOOOO fun! My daughter had it when she was younger. We put her on a all protein diet and it really seemed to work! I love the picture at the end of your blog. I think children have a way of making us laugh even when no one else can. Check out my site if you get a chance, I have a funny picture of my son that no matter what kind of mood I am in I always smile looking at it!
