I'm Still Sick! Not Good!

There is so much I want to write, but I'm nauseous 24/7 since the last couple of days. Each night I wake up to "get sick" a couple of times, with pounding headaches, but when I take tylonol or the Cold Plus, it kinda helps. David has been holding down the fort like crazy and doing very well I must say. Evan had to be picked up last minute from school, but not before Tigist bit Evan for the 4th time in 2 days and really hard this time. We put her in time out and she absolutely knows she did something wrong. It's just been her nature for so long I guess.

I see David working 24/7 keeping the house up and spending time with Tigist, keeping up with his business and taking over my job of the business, cooking and taking our cat today to have unexpected surgery that over the phone was quoted oh, maybe $150, but turned out to be $700. (She had mites in her ears and one was completely swollen full of blood) and she's on her way home right now, which is why I'm alone and get to write something (I'm really venting). One of the boys teachers needed to email me something about their behavior, so I really need to deal with that. I feel so bad not connecting enough with the kids and David, but I just feel so flat. The house is getting so messy, we have a parent meeting tonight that I think I should just miss and I'm not feeling any better. I thought maybe I had acetaminophen poisoning cause I was downing the Cold Plus and also migraine tylonol, but you really have to have 4 x that much to do damage ... so I know I didn't poison my liver. I guess I just have a bad flu. Maybe I should count myself lucky that it didn't happen while traveling. That would have been the pits.

I will post pictures and updates when I feel better ... just trying to hang in there.

p.s. Cat just got home. She has 15 stitches and 15 staples in her ear...oh my gosh. What else can happen. It's just been a trying week. Perhaps next week will be looking up!

I will be praying that you feel better quick! It sounds yucky and I'm sure feels worse. :( I'm glad David is taking care of you...and everything else!

I haven't been to your blog for awhile and wanted to say congratulations on having Tigist home! I am browsing through your Italy posts next. :)

Sherry,
My new friend who was at the Sheraton the same time as us came home and she and her husband went thru the same sickness as my husband and I. It's weird actually. Must be something about what we bring back from there to here once we reach home.
Hmmmm?

Could you have picked up Giardia? I had that after arriving home from ET with my daughter. No fun but some Cipro and Flagyl mad elife a lot better pretty quickly.

Poor Lisa! Way to go, David! It looks like both of our families are a bit swamped these days. I hope you feel much, much better very, very soon! love, Lory

Lisa and David said...

Lory,
Thanks so much. I wonder how Amelie is going? I'll call you today!
Hugs,
Lisa

Aimie,
I really don't think I have that as I do not have the main symptom. I appreciate the idea though. Thank you!

Poor baby! Don't you hate being sick? Sounds like a rough week! I pray for health and energy.

It must be hard to be sick right now. Being a mom and being sick do not go well together.
I hope you and your kitty feel better really soon!
