I'm currently propped up with my pillows, hubby is next to me watching Transformers and I'm blogging away.
Thanks to the early gift (he said it was for St. Nick's Day, but I think he was just too excited and wanted to give it to me early) of a gorgeous pink laptop!
It was probably the best thing to a very hard week for me. His timing was perfect and I couldn't be happier.
Because, aside from me falling into one of the darkest funks I've ever been in, I also came down with a cold. The second one in probably 6 weeks. Yesterday I woke up miserable; both nostrils sealed shut, red gums and a sore throat from having to breathe through my mouth all night. Through the day my right ear started to feel funny ... the sort that feels like there is bubble in there. The kind that made me want to stick a pencil in my ear to pop it. When I started to notice some pain, too, I called my PCP. I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone, too, and try to mooch some pain drugs while I was there.
So no infection, but I was running a slight fever and when she looked up my nose with her little light thing, she said "Oh yeah....LOTS of congestion in there!". So I left with a script for an antibiotic to try to get rid of this plague and one for some very nifty pain killers.
MY PCP IS MY SAVIOR.
Seriously - while it doesn't take away all my pain, it helped me to actually get a decent night's sleep (and made me want to stay in bed all day - when I looked at the clock and realized it was almost 9am, I pulled myself from the bed). Now I've got 3 prescriptions I'm taking plus some generic Mucinex to get rid of the gunk. Not sure if it was a combination of drugs, or lack of food (I'm thinking the pretty much empty belly was the culprit), but I spent a good portion of the day feeling lightheaded and barfy. That was miserable as we had my son's family birthday party today. At one point I left the party to go upstairs to lie down.
So needless to say, it has not been a good week for me at all. But my hubby - bless his soul - did his best to try to make things look up a little for me. And it worked.
I love him and my new pretty laptop.
