    G'day people.

    I spent most of the day at the hospital again. There was cancellation at my GPs, she sent me to the hospital to be admitted and given i.v. antibiotics. She said I needed to be admitted; if they discharged me, she wants to see me on Wednesday so she can keep an eye on me. The hospital ER was packed, I waited for four hours. The doctor who saw me put me on a drip and gave me more antibiotics, said he would admit me but when it came down to it, there were no beds. Then he had my file seen by a respiratory specialist who said that with my results, there was no need for antibiotics and I could go home. I'm still running a high fever and still not sure what is going on. But tomorrow I will be calling another of my doctors, who may send me back to the hospital.

    I just wish they'd make up their minds! I would have preferred to not go out today, I could have stayed home in bed and not sat in the ER for hours.

    I'm scheduled to see my GP again on Wednesday. I cancelled all tomorrow's appointments. I missed seeing easy child 2/difficult child 2 today as well. She and SIL2 came over to visit, but I was out at the hospital. Very frustrating!

    Anyway, I'm back resting, feeling useless. My brain feels like cotton wool and I need to have it functioning, I'm expecting phone calls from difficult child 3's teachers over the next dew days.

    Oh, well... enjoy your Monday. It's got to be better than mine was.

    Marge, I'm sure it is frustrating. I hope your doctors figure out what's going on. Hugs. Rest and don't worry about all the other stuff for another 24hrs.

    Good morning all. Nothing exciting today. Normal housework, paperwork etc.
    difficult child will be returning from his weekend with his buddies. No news from the very positive interview. Sigh. So we continue to wait.

    Hope you all have a wonderful summer(winter for the other hemisphere) day.

    Good Morning Marg,

    I'm sorry you are still feeling so ill:sick: If you start feeling worse, don't wait to go back to ER. I'm also sorry you had to wait there for so long. I know how frustrating that can be. Feel better soon. Hugs.

    It's a beautiful sunny day here in Madison. Later we are to get storms but for now it's great. husband and I did boot camp this morning. It was especially a hard workout. We did lots of running on a huge hill and quite a bit of other leg work. I have so far to go in building up muscle strength!!

    In a bit I will take difficult child to his therapist appointment and then drop him at camp. No real plans for the rest of the day; maybe some cleaning, definitely a nap!

    Wishing everyone a peaceful day:peaceful:

    {{{Marg}}} I'm so sorry for all that wasted time you could have been home resting. I hope today you get to do just that! Your body needs you to be bored and feeling useless for a while it seems. Allow it the time it needs to heal now. Hugs~

    It's a work day today. I am draaaaaaggggggiiiiinnnnnggggg, can't seem to wake up. I've been crashing at 8:30 every night but then I wake up at 1-ish and can't get back to sleep! Very frustrating. And for some reason, H thinks it's just hysterical to wake me once I'm down by closing doors too loudly and starting conversations as if it's 3 in the afternoon. If I can keep my eyeballs open tonight I think I may return the favor by vacuuming once he's down. See how he likes that. Only a sleep deprived woman would think in such evil ways!

    Saw my Dr about that strange bladder pain and she called it something, but basically it's like an internal bladder/Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). She put me on powerful antibiotics (that are not being nice to my GI) but hopes to knock it out by tomorrow. Also, she is sending me for an ultrasound of the area to make sure there aren't any cysts, or whatever. And my Lymes symptoms are kicking in big time but Dr refuses to re-treat which is really annoying me. I'm so tired of being tired.

    Wish I was home by the's the bright spot of my life these days!

    Have a great day everyone and stay cool.

    Good Morning Ladies!

    Marg, sorry to hear about the "wasted" ER time - that's frustrating. Hope you get some good rest tonight - take is easy and let the others do for you.

    Fran, our Mondays always sound the same - it's always chores around the house! I do enjoy getting the week laid out and tying up all the loose ends at the beginning of the week! Positive thoughts for that job (and fingers crossed).

    Sharon, glad you are having lovely weather - we are having hot and humid - but we did have a nice much-needed rain last night! Enjoy that nap girl.

    Jo, I love the idea of running the vacuum! Hope you begin to feel better soon and get a good solid night's sleep - that can really factor in to how you are feeling.

    As I said to Fran, typical Monday here. Though difficult child and I will continue our Moon Light marathon (a great show that was on CBS a couple years ago - got wonderful reviews and even a Peoples Choice award but was not renewed - my cousin told me about it and lent me the season set). difficult child loved the show and the music. Yesterday he and I watched the second and third disk (of a four disk set). He and easy child postponed their "broski" time (easy child calls him little broski) until later in the week. She ended up on a shopping spree yesterday afternoon with cash from two very lucrative babysitting jobs! They are getting together tomorrow instead. difficult child actually spent hours with me yesterday! We ended up watching True Blood together last night! It was nice spending the majority of the day with him rather than just coexisting in different areas of the house. Love that boy of mine!

    Hope your Monday is a great one!
