So it's been a few days since the last time I blogged and I feel like it's time to catch up. I'm trying to have a successful day in accomplishing things around the house, though I don't have much motivation for it. Wish me the best with it, lol.
Aaron is finally feeling better. He went to the walk-in doctor and was sitting there for 2 hours before they saw him. Then they sent him for x-rays. "X-rays for the flu?!" , I asked him. "No", he said.
Apparently it wasn't the flu at all ~ which is why it happened twice in a 4 week period of time. Instead he had an intestinal blockage. He didn't need surgery at that point, but did sent him home on some really heavy duty laxative to try to clear the problem out. It sounds funny but really it isn't. If that blockage had ruptured his intestines it most likely would have killed him. Amazingly he's feeling a lot better now and it seems that the medicine worked, keeping him from having to endure surgery.
How on earth would you ever guess that flu-like symptoms could mean THAT?!! Even down to the high fever his symptoms all matched the handout they gave him at the appointment.
What's really strange looking back is that when we arrived at the resort and got into our room I started feeling that something was VERY wrong and I couldn't figure out why… I almost had us leave and go home within the first hour of being there because of it. It was a feeling of danger to a loved one. I know that may sound nuts but I've always had that particular gift, if you will.Sometimes I know things before they happen, or know something is wrong. Sadly it doesn't do me any good except make me wary of anything that might be amiss. It be so much better if it was like someone telling me out loud what exactly was the problem.
I'm still feeling low and I don't want to do anything. I need to go change the laundry over and take my meds. I've been having a lot of trouble remembering to take my morning meds because I start thinking about all the other things I need to do that day and my meds just don't even register in my brain. See? Even my brain is commiting mutiny! It doesn't want me to take them either! 😉
It's so strange how quiet it is in the house right now. Zach's at school, Aaron and Mom are at work, and all the animals, (especially the birds!) are quiet and peaceful. I don't know what I'd do without my animals. It sounds silly, but they keep me going during the day when the house is empty. Knowing that they depend on me for food and water and affection is what makes me stay up after I get back from dropping Zachary at school. Otherwise I'd just crawl back into bed and spend most of the day there.
Completely different subject here ~ we have a contractor who is working on the house still and I have to be home while he's here. He's a nice enough guy, but I don't want him here or the responsibility of watching over him all day, every day. I guess to Mom that makes me useful in some manner. (sigh) Hopefully he'll be finished soon. At least I have the porch back now. He's going to be working on the west-end porch from now until he finishes.
My final bit is about sleeping arrangements. I've been sleeping on the couch now for 3 nights and honestly as much as it aggravates me I sleep so much better and so does Aaron. On the 26th I go see a doctor about the snoring issue, but until then I'm on the couch. That's okay. I used to go sleep on the couch as an escape from my bed anyhow, so now I'm just on a vacation instead.
I hope you all have a very beautiful day and find a piece of happiness within you!
