Illness update . . .

Well, I gave up the good fight and decided to see my doctor today. Wouldn't you know it, I have bronchitis and sinusitis. I got a good talkin to from the doc. He couldn't believe that I had let myself get so bad. But seriously, it's been tough here taking care of the two sick girls -- I haven't had a moment to think about me. I've been taking some over-the-counter meds thinking that I could wait this thing out. Apparently not! He's giving me a couple of days to try to get the swelling down in my sinuses. If that doesn't work, we'll do an x-ray and go from there. He's afraid the the infection may spread into my head near my brain. He wrote me four prescriptions. I'm to start the antibiotics today. I start a steroid tomorrow for the swelling in my sinuses (6 steroids pills tomorrow to be exact!). So, needless to say, I'm glad Hubby will be flying home tomorrow to help out with the girls. He is also on meds trying to head off the infection. And today, Baby Lulu's dr called her in some new antibiotics. Maddy1 has an appt tomorrow. Please pray that we all get well soon. We've got Maddy1's party here at the house on Saturday and I've got tons to do. Hubby has knee surgery scheduled for Tues. If his white blood cell count is low, they will cancel his surgery. We've built our whole Sept/Oct schedule around this surgery, so please pray that we can proceed as planned. I'll keep you all posted! Off to try to get some rest now.

I had no idea it had gotten so bad, illness wise! I thought you just had a cold! Yes, do rest. And drink plenty of fluids. Like cranberry pomegranate juice... and try not to FRET.
