Yet again I slept like crap last night…seems to be the story of my life these days. Then this morning my son really didn’t want to get out of bed…I mean he really didn’t want to!! Usually he gets up fairly easily, well not today. He basically refused to move!! He’s generally downstairs by 7:45 – 7:50, well today he wasn’t even dressed at 8:05!! He just wasn’t having it!! Silly boy! Finally, he got up, but he was not happy about it!! I said goodbye to him and my daughter and stayed in bed until 10:00. Then I called my oldest daughter downstairs in her room. Good thing too, because her alarm didn’t go off and we had to get up for her dr’s appointment! We needed to leave by about 10:30. My tummy felt both nauseous and a bit hungry…which was new. We got Timmy’s on the way to the dr’s office, I had my usual order (earl grey tea – 2 milks, 1 honey and a muffin). The dr said that they found a cyst in my daughter’s brain in the MRI. It’s nothing for us to be concerned about, she said. She told us that they are found often and that my daughter was likely born with it. It only becomes a problem if it starts to block the passages of cerebral spinal fluid in the brain. Because the cyst in my daughter’s brain is rather large, the neurologist did speak with a neurosurgeon about it and they recommended doing a follow up MRI next year to see if the cyst has grown or if it has remained the same size. They will only be concerned if it has grown. However, in the meantime she told us not to worry about it. She put a note in her file to do another MRI next year and I guess that for now we don’t worry about it… When the appointment was over, we went to Winners on the way home. My daughter needed to try on some dark blue jeans for work. She only had one pair and it’s been driving her crazy doing laundry like mad trying to keep them clean, especially when she works 6 days in a row!! We found 4 pairs of jeans for her to try on, 3 of which would work for work and all 4 actually fit her really well!! Yay! That hardly ever happens!! She actually ended up buying all 4 pairs, because she desperately needed new jeans and they were all priced really well! She also found another white shirt that she can wear to work and she bought that as well! I needed eye cream and found some, I find Winners is a great place for face creams and stuff like that, such great prices!! Once we were finished at Winners, we drove home. I was feeling really sick again. I had an hour until I had to drive my daughter to dance, so I just laid on my bed until we had to go. Then I dropped her off at dance. I went to my parent’s house while she was dancing. Then I picked her up when she was finished!! On the way home, my daughter and I stopped at the Walmart to buy her a new charge cord and base, hers finally stopped working…she was using the base from the original iPad that we bought years ago!! Then we came home. While I was at my parent’s house I brought something small with me to eat, well, of course it didn’t sit right, so by the time that we got home I was feeling like I was going to yack!!! So was not feeling good… at all!! I went directly upstairs and put on my pjs and laid down. My son went on my phone beside me and my daughter came in and we talked about her english project. Then my daughter had a shower and my son went downstairs. I stayed in bed until my son came upstairs for bed. I got him into bed. Then I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to get ready for bed. I’m still feeling sick and I have a head cold and the damn diarrhea hasn’t stopped yet. I’m thinking that it really should any day now…Yuck!! I just want to feel normal!!!!
Night All! 💤😴
