How was the holidays, Marie? How are you feeling?
I had to reschedule my Dr appt from yesterday to Wednesday because we had a terrible blizzard all day and the roads were treacherous. My Dr is in the town just north of where I live...only 15 or so Mins away from me but to get there I habe to drive the main hwy. Both the radio and local news was announcing to avoid the hwy unless absolutely necessary. So, Wednesday it is. My honey can drive me that day as he's got the day off.
No change for me thus far. Still fevered and not sleeping much. I was in tears last night because my hips hurt so badly I could barely walk. This morning it's my ankles, toes, and shoulders. Always something aching. My sister who lives in Alberta, is an Rn...she has been my brain through all this. Exhaustion and brain fog from the mtx leave me struggling to think clearly most days...so, she is often helping me stay on track with everything. So each Dr visit I bring up what my sister has suggested...thankfully my Dr understands this so doesn't get annoyed. Lol. If I were him, I'd likely find it annoying if my patient was constantly saying "So, my sister has suggested blah blah blah" lol Maybe it helps too that after I mention her suggestions I ask him what he thinks about it. ;-)
Anyhow, other than that, just getting through this week. Sunday I will turn 40..yikes..nothing planned but to watch football to see my Seattle Seahawks win over the Vikings haha maybe my older kids will come over later. I decided not to.have a party right now because I'm feeling so sick. I'm going to though at a later date...it's a good opportunity to have friends come visit as I haven't been able to get out much or haven't had the energy or stamina. I know a gathering would help my spirit however so I will plan something soon.
Oh and I got amazing news on Christmas Eve. After months and months of stressful paperwork, waiting, and struggling to make ends meet, I got the news that my Long term disability through work was approved. Payment begins January 15. What a relief and miracle. Hooray!!!!!
