A Good Day June 9, 2012

Today was pretty good. I found out my boy has Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. What’s good is that he has not had it nearly as bad as some people get it. Although it can last up to three weeks, usually the first week is the worst. And we are at the end of the first week. I have also had a sore throat, so hopefully I am about done too.

Mr. Man was advised by his doctor to stop taking the new vitamins he bought a few weeks ago and cut back on the coffee in order to relieve his bowel distress. Today, he did that and did not need to constantly run to the bathroom. Hopefully this will continue and his meds will stay in his system long enough to fully do their job.

Crazy Boy went to his grandparents’ house for the afternoon. So Mr. Man and I each got a nice long nap. That was great, because what mother doesn’t need more sleep? And I didn’t have to deal with my husband being cranky from caffeine withdrawal.

Even the weather was nice. The sun came out and stayed out. Yeah, I was in the pediatrician’s office for the morning and in bed for the afternoon, but it was nice knowing it was there.

I leave you with this bit of advice from Crazy Boy in his 4 year old wisdom. “You should never go swimming in a thunderstorm. Lightning might poke a hole in you.”

 

This and That June 8, 2012

It has been a heck of a couple of weeks. Mr. Man’s mental health has been steadily declining. If you follow my facebook page, you know this is probably due to his bad and prolonged case of “the runs.” If his pills don’t stay in him long enough to be processed, he has little hope of maintaining any level of sanity. I finally got him to see his primary care doctor. He is having labwork done and a follow-up appointment. I hope this goes away soon. He is in a lot of discomfort, can’t go far from home and te safety of our bathroom, and is losing his marbles down the toilet.

Crazy Boy probably has strep throat and I feel like I am getting it too. He sees his new pediatrician in the morning. I switched because his old one didn’t take our insurance. I hope the new doctor is good. I also need a new doctor for the same reason. So I may have to go to the emergency room for this as I have no primary care doctor and there are no longer any walk-in clinics in my area. Hooray! Not…

My Bible reading is sporadic. I am in Psalms. I am uninspired. I am not surrounded by enemies as David was. I am surrounded by sickness. I would really like God to grant my family health. This constant illness is wearing on me.
