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..
