Snowing again, getting colder out,, possible single digits ..
I finally broke down and took half a pain pill along with some Coricidin BP at bedtime.. Slept great, only up twice to visit Johnny!!

After some tax paper searches this morning, I have decided to clean the kitchen up and start baking.. Cookies, muffins, cake.. chicken noodle soup too.. I love to cook and bake and it will heat the house and me, up somewhat!! Got to wear a disposable glove though, until I can get this bandage off my finger!!!! emoticon emoticon

    Snowing? Guess what...we have rain today in the evergreen state of Washington. Surprise! Actually, I don't mind the rain because we get rainbows. I always look for the rainbow in everything. I also love to cook. It makes the house smell so good and my husband very happy. LOL! I can really relate to your reluctance to take pain pills. I admire this reluctance. I had a recent bout with coughing and wheezing and refused to take the codeine cough syrup for four days.....finally I broke down and took only a few doses to see me through the coughing spell. I am 507 days sober and I do not want ever to return to addiction. I did not like the immediate dopey feeling I experienced with the cough syrup. I am praying for you today to get better. I love your SparkPage....green is a color I love....especially this dark teal hue. Have a fantastic day!!!! emoticon

Happy Slasher(I mean St. Valentine's Day!

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Obviously I have not spent enough days in the hospital this year, so only two days since my last visit there, I spent the morning in the E.R. this time for me..
I was working on a machine at work and slashed my index finger, spewing blood everywhere, making a deep gash. It is an irregular slash, so instead of stitches, I suggested they glue me back together so I do not have stitches,,
went back to work for an hour, came home,, off next three days.. so happy I wrote out all of those checks yesterday... hard to use my digits for this type of thing with the pointer wrapped in miles of gauze.

    So sorry 2013 isn't going well for you. I sure hope this is the last of the crazies for you and yours. So glad that they have that glue available...it is AWESOME!! That is what they used when they did my brain surgery and I loved it. So much better than stitches and staples.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hope if feels better soon.

I am so happy that by the time I get to work, I am not coughing or sneezing,, When I get home it all riles up and I can take medicine.
I was supposed ot meet friends for dinner at a very nice place this afternoon, but just called to decline,, the coughing jags and etc, are not conducive to that place.. I kept trying to tell them I was sick, that DD was going to E.R, but they persisted,, I am also glad I cancelled..

Dd got major steroids ordered,, 50 mg a day for five days,, the antibiotics should help her feel better by tomorrow.. she also got IM meds before leaving the hospital, so got an extra boost there.

I have learned to be more flexible with mom requiring so much of my time.
So, today I did double duty for catching up on my things,,, left work, drove to township hall to pay hers and my property taxes that are due tomorrow.. went to credit union to move some $$ around, came home started stripping beds, doing laundry( DD skin is falling off in large pieces,,) so treated bedding, bed with dust mite stuff, she vacuumed it,, will vac it again before replacing bedding, laundry is half finished, so I sat and paid mom's bills, balanced both check books,, got another call from her place,, now she needs PT from her last hospital visit and then another nurse called me to tell me that mom again has cellulitis, so home health care will be starting soon on her,,

I hope everybody out there is taking care of themselves and nursing their colds.

Last eyar we never had one cold or any flu or anything,, This year is a doozy for all, according to teh nurses and docs..

Forced myself to go to work today,, raced home to take DD to Emergency room.. When we finally got in a treatment room, the nurse told ME to put the gown on.. I was coughing and blowing my nose, sneezing, hacking,,

we finally got home after six hours.. had to stop at Krogers to get her Rx's filled, home now, doing laundry, getting something to eat and off to bed,, we are POOPED..

    Coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose belong at home - not at work. The other employees don't need to share your germs!
