Home Sick

I'm home sick today... It started yesterday with a sore throat, last night I tossed and turned all night, Raisin woke me at 3am, son3 woke me at 3:30am, the alarm woke me at 5:30am... I got up for work, was taking a shower and thought you know, I really am sick, I should stay home today cause after this weekend, we are going to be lucky to get a day off til Christmas... My throats not sore anymore, but my head hurts, my nose is stuffy, my teeth hurt, my back hurts, my ribs hurt, I'm starting to cough... and I'm so tired.....
So I got son2 off to school, called into work, someone answered by the third time I called, hubby got son3 off to work and then himself off to work... I have had hot chocolate, lots of orange pineapple banana juice, cola, and chicken soup... I got all the ecards for December bdays ready to send... I did a bit of Christmas shopping for hubby online... And two loads of laundry... all from the comfort of my computer, lol... Next I'm hoping to get caught up a bit on blog reading, I am so far behind.... then when the boys get home from school, I can do a bit of paperwork and such while they do homework... then make some ham and cheese omelets for dinner... I think Smallville and Supernatural are repeats tonight, not sure, but if they are we can watch some more Alien Nation, I've got the whole family hooked on it now, lol...
Last night hubby came home from his appointment for his colonopscopy and boy was he all worked up, in more ways then one, lol... ok, poor thing, I'll be nice... His appointment was at 2:15pm, he finally got in the office at 3pm and finally was with the doctor at 3:30pm... By time he got home it was after 5pm and no chicken... He was all mad cause everyone kept reassuring him that it would be a piece of cake and he believed them... and no one told him that the doctor filled you with air so he could see what he needed to see.... so he comes home all bloated and uncomfortable, trying to tell me what the doctor said but all agitated and yelling at me, so I yelled at him, got him calmed down and let's start at the beginning of the story and not the end... he kept trying to tell me that everyone has what the doctor found and it's no big deal and the doctor took a biopsy just in case on the polyp he found and he was sure it would come back benign.... and I'm like what the heck???!!! Why is it every time hubby goes to the doctor they have to put thoughts in his head... can't they just do the test and send him the results without all the what ifs... Sheesh when I go to the doctor, I get nothing and then the results come saying all is fine... And then they gave hubby a pamphlet in Spanish all about Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis, which is what the doctor told him everyone has to some degree... Whatever........ I asked hubby do you ever have any pain when you eat nuts, he said no, the doctor said nuts is an irritant... I said OK then, you don't have it... Hubby told me that when I get my back pain from eating popcorn, that I have it... I said no, I had my gall bladder out and I shouldn't eat popcorn cause it can't travel through as well now, and that is what causes my pain... So anyway after hubby calmed down a bit, he decided that he would take son2 to Carl's Jr to get dinner since he could go through the drive thru and not have to get out of the car, lol.... By 8:30pm his air had cleared and he was feeling much better, lol... We watched Bones, so funny, Criminal Minds, hubby is getting into this show now and we both fell asleep at the beginning of CSI NY... the boys were asleep early at 9pm... This morning hubby did say he was up at midnight with heartburn but this morning he was feeling better and glad his ordeal was all over, for five years anyway....
Happy Journaling...

Sorry you aren't feeling well! Hope you're all better soon.I'm glad you decided to stay home and rest up before the holiday rush. Glad your hubby's ordeal is over too, poor guy.

I hope your day off did some good and you are feeling better. Lots of colds and flu going around right now. It sounds like you are getting lots done though. Glad hubby is ok and calmed down. I've never had that test even though they say everyone over 50 should have it. It just sounds terrible.

Hugs to you hope you get well soon too. Your the mom you can't be sick remember. So exciting knowing you won't have a day off until after Christmas...geez.
Get some rest and glad you decided to take the day off.

your poor hubby! seems like they didn't educate him enough of what to expect and I think its awful how long he had to wait especially since he was probably hungry and feeling a bit weak from being hungry from the prep for the test

I think it was wise you took the day off work; you are right it would just get busier and busier between now and Christmas; hoping you are feeling better and asleep by now although it is only 10 p.m. as I type this
