I know I know, I am way way behind with things I need to talk about, but ever since we went on vacation at the beginning of November, I have been sick. And I mean SICK. I woke up on the first day home from Jekyll Island with a scratchy throat, itchy ears, and a cough that would not go away. I took the home remedies we usually take, but they didn’t help, so after about 5 days, I took myself to the doctor.
Now, this trip to the doctor was the first one after my new health insurance policy went into effect, and it was nice to be able to be treated the way the doctor wanted to treat me, without worrying about how much it would cost. I came away from that appointment with a sore behind due to a steroid shot in one butt cheek, and an antibiotic shot in the other one, and a prescription for a ten day round of antibiotic for a sinus infection.
I took my meds as directed, along with an effervescent cold relief medication, and slept for a week. At the end of the ten days of antibiotic, I was still sick, and possibly sick-ER than I was to start with. I took myself back to the doctor, who checked me over and said I now had an ear infection in addition to the sinus infection. I got two more shots, and another, different ten day antibiotic. I have slept more than a newborn baby, and finally yesterday was the first day I have felt almost alive again since November 1.
I have to apologize to several sponsors, because I am way way behind with my Holiday Gift Guide. It was supposed to start on November 1, and I have not done it yet. I will be starting it today, with at least one post that will include a giveaway.
I have also not told you about the progress we have made on our home improvements. It is so amazing how putting just a few dollars into a simple project can make your home feel more cozy, and look gorgeous. We are not finished yet, but we have installed new windows, a new front door and storm door, a new counter top and sink in the kitchen, painted, and installed the Broan Range Hood. I can not tell you how much that exhaust fan has helped the air in our house smell better.
So what’s been up with you while I have been sleeping?
