Health update on the family
Friday, March 22, 2013
I know I've been mentioning how sick we all have been because of this danged cold weather. My husband finally went back in to the doctor, seeing a completely new one, and got a diagnosis! I love when doctors put a label on the problems we're having. He seems to get sick at the end of each winter and just couldn't kick this one so he now has "chronic bronchitis" and mild asthma. Things that can be handled with medication and he should be feeling better within a few days.
I am to the point of sleeping on the couch in a sitting position because when I lie down my head starts to throb. Ear infection #2 came in and opened up, but fortunately it wasn't as major of a blowout at the first one, so I still have all my hearing in that ear when it has no cotton ball in it. I'm hoping for warm weather soon!
My mom is healing well and has an appointment for a checkup on the eye. It was for some puckering and they basically drained it and blew it back up into the proper roundness. She's going to ask when they can do the cataracts, hopefully this year so she can go on this years already paid up deduction instead of having to pay the big bucks again next year.
This is the last day of school before spring breaks, so hopefully we'll have time to get the house clean and get rid of some of those cold bugs around the house. I will be putting my kids to work and teaching them how to clean since they're still feeling well. They're 6 and 8, I've let them slack long enough on helping with cleaning the house. They're capable of dishes and sweeping. I'll also show them how a bathroom is done this week, even if I don't make them clean it.
I hope everyone else is feeling better, I know many of you have been sick too. Seems to be going around still. May it get warm and we are able to play outside again!
