On top of everything else, I've got asthma and I became sick early November with a cold. Right after Thanksgiving I began to feel a little better and then relapsed. Christmas exposure to 3 others who were sick added fuel to the fire. I cannot get well and last night my mouth was covered in pinprick red spots that burned & tingled, on top of the white scaly patches I've had since just before Christmas. This morning i had zero voice, so I go to the doctor and he tells me its viral and I just have to wait it out.
Got a call from my Aunt, and my Uncle passed away this am. He'd been fighting a recurrence of cancer. He's at peace at least and not suffering. But I can't expose others to my virus by going to the funeral, and that breaks my heart.
My dad also saw a doctor this am, a cardiologist. He's got fluid around his heart and was diagnosed with copd last October. The doctor said he's extremely anemic but says its important he goes to this appt at Mayo. He's been fighting symptoms of his original cancer (1982 & 2007) for 4 months. They're sending him to Mayo clinic next week for internal scoping. They suspect the cancers in his small intestines. And I can't go around him because he needs to stay well. Nor can I go down to Mayo until I'm well. This really is tough! Send a prayer up for my Dad & Aunt...thanks!
