Bex is off for her first midwife appointment this morning. If Dante is better he will go with her, and if not, he can stay home with his Grandma, that would be me.
Me. Still coughing and feeling like shit. I'm making a Doctor's appointment first thing this morning, probably for tomorrow, when I have less on.
I want to get something more for the back ache, the cough and to help me sleep at night. I no longer take Amitriptyline, having successfully weaned myself off them, so am having heaps of trouble staying asleep at night, thanks to the bloody hot flushes hitting me on the hour.
So, fingers crossed the Dr can give me something. Tomorrow.
Another possible side effect of going off the Amitriptyline? My appetite has kinda gone. And my capacity to eat huge meals? GONE. Wishful thinking? Mind over matter? Or those pills no longer affecting me? Either way, it's a novel feeling! Long may it last.
This morning will be devoted to housework and some sewing I hope.
If Dante ends up staying here with me when Bex goes to the midwife, I shall just enjoy some quality Dante and me time. I hope he's well though, it was so quiet yesterday! He spent most of the day sleeping, poor bubba.
This country goes to the Polls next weekend, to vote for whoever we want in power. So over all the crap in the papers/tv about it all... all the major parties trying to dig up dirt on the others. Anyway, I read this on a friend's Facebook last night and it made me laugh:
Nicky Hager notes all this down then leaves.
GIVEAWAY: Be in to win this little lighthouse wall hanging... enter your name (in a comment) by Wednesday 11pm (NZ time) to be in to win.
Change of day's plans.
I'm going to the Dr first thing this morning (9.45), and I'm not going to Hospice this afternoon.
I don't feel up to 4 hours on my feet in the shop, coughing and feeling miserable.
Dante is all recovered, so he's going to the midwife with Bex, and so am I. Cos I got invited. Cool.... today we will probaby get a due date.
GrandBaby No #13 is due on May 1st, 2015. All is well with mother and peanut.
Dante: sick as a dog.
Had a midday sleep, woke and threw up all over the floor. High temperature and miserable.
Me: Felt like throwing up at lunchtime something rotten, had a fruit bun and dozed for 2 hours. I now feel much better, except for my back which is really sore. Coughing has eased for now.
BEX: needs sleep! But coping well.
Griffin: home from school, starving. Making himself 2 huge toasted sandwiches for afternoon tea!
Brylee: not home yet. Fingers crossed she's been a good little teenager at school today. *sigh*
*** I presume you who have left comments want to be in the draw to win the little wall hanging? Ya didn't say (except Christine)
OK... it's been a stressful afternoon/evening in a way. Dante's temperature has gone up and down between 38.4 - 40.4 and he's still fluctuating madly. Hopefully he improves overnight.
My cough is now making me throw up too. Gawd I hate this sort of cough that seems to get me once a year!
End of Day: hoping tomorrow sees better health for me and Dante, and Bex doesn't get morning sickness!
