Well not me. Not for at least a month anyways, probably a month and a half.
But school is back, and we should all be back in some kind of normal daily routine again. Right?
I hope so. This last month has taken a round out of a few of us.
My oldest son is still not better. We were in the clinic today and had to wait for hours, to see the one doc that was available. Luckily at the clinic we went to, we live close to and they let us come home while we waited. We have tests to get done tomorrow to make sure his liver is ok, and we should find out what is going on with his throat. I hope for his sake it is strep throat. At least they can give him something to make the pain go away.
I nearly lost it in the doctors today when he was getting his throat swabbed and I could see how much one little touch of a cotton swab hurt him. We all hate seeing our kid in pain. I am barely hanging on by a thread with that at this point. He has been in agony in one way or another for weeks now. I am sure it is getting old for him more so than for me, but I feel helpless. There is NOTHING I can do to make him better. It sucks.
All I can do is keep shoving yogurt down his throat and making sure he is drinking water. His temperature was 39 C today…or 102.2 F.
So I am also now shoving Advil down his too sore to swallow anything but water throat. So not only am I helpless, but I am mean too.
And I took down my tree.
So I am sad. I loved that tree.
I also got invited for steak and prawns…
By a cute boy.
But had to say no.
The turkey pie I made was good though, probably better than the smoothie I made for Dylan. Poor kid.
But we are all snuggled in here in our nice warm, though sadly undecorated house. We are together and safe, if not totally healthy.
Tomorrow we will move a step forward to making the kid feel better. I am telling you, no one better piss me off. I want the fucking doctors to actually do their jobs and make my son better, or at least reduce the pain he is feeling. That will happen tomorrow.
So thanks for listening, I needed to vent a little…I am going to snuggle up on my couch with my evil cat and watch some bad tv, and continue to harass my sick kid with water and drugs.
Tomorrow is officially the start of my new year…when I really get stuff happening. Basically if you are a dumbass, get the hell out of my way. On every level.
The direction is now officially changing. Watch me.
Happy New Year to you all :) Let’s make it an incredible year shall we?
