Long Week

Oct 21, 2015 9:58 PM

Its been a long week, to start it off my hubby and daughter get sick and we have no primary care doctor anymore because she move and gave us last min notice. So I kept her home. Yesterday my aunt had 2 hour testing appointment to see about her heart valve replacement surgery, that will now turn into another visit and more testing they are doing ALL in one day starting at 6am and ending at 2pm! Then today daughter got worse and started coughing like a seal so I took her to the er and she has phyartengitis(spelling) so they gave her 500mlg of Amoxasillian to which we are now rushing back to the er with her with a sever allergic reaction to, rash everywhere, throat closing up. So I sprung into action with some benadryl and a couple puffs of her inhailer and put her in the car and off we went! I would gladly take higher pain levels if it ment my kids would be okay. Sorry for the rant but I panic less when I can write it down. Thanks for listening.

Thank you Flappys and safety it really is! I wish I could say today is my down time day but tiss not, son has 2 football games and we never miss them, we have only missed one game and that was when aunt was having an outpatient procedure to find out about the 2 valves. I woke up at 2-3 am with a throat so sore that I couldn't even drink water. So here is to another long day and praying for Friday to hurry and get !😁 lol!!! Praying you ladies have a pain free day as possible! Sending my love and gentle soft hugs! πŸ™πŸ˜˜πŸ’•

MoparMom, sounds like you've certainly been through the mill this week. I am sorry to hear of your Aunt's heart issues and your child getting sick. Thank God you were clear headed and gave the Benedryl!!! It's scary when a child gets sick and then sicker because of the medication. I understand what you said about taking on more pain if your child was ok. Sending love, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and my prayers that things go better for you.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Thank You Alwayz, taking care of 5 people plus myself has given me my level head and some of my natural reaction to things. The doctor at the er prescribed a new antibiotic and went to fill it and the pharmacist that we use and knows my family told me that the er doctor prescribed to large a dose of the new antibiotic so he asked if he could adjust the dosage so she doesn't get even sicker again. So I said yes because and she is doing very well on this new antibiotic. I'll be glad when this week is over and my daughters and my throat stops hurting, lol soup is our best friendπŸ˜…. Prayers to you for a very light pain day or pain free if possible and gental soft hugs! πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ˜˜

Moparmom, I'm glad the new antibiotic is helpful. I am now dealing with the second round of colds in the house as my Father has it, my Mother is getting it and I'm getting it too. Got up this morning with sore throat and stuffy and achy (more than normal, although it's hard to tell.. LOL!!) I hate getting sick because then I end up in a flare. Sending gentle {{{{Hugs}}}} your way and you'll all be in my prayers.πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Thank You Alwayz I'm with you, I hate getting sick too! It's the worst! My son woke up this morning feeling cruddy. So it's defiantly going through our house as well! Only 2 people has not had it and I pray they don't get it. Praying for you Alwayz! Hope you get to feeling better soon! Sending love and soft gental hugs! πŸ™πŸ˜˜πŸ’•
