Not on the bright side…

My asthma and allergies flared up bad this morning, I was to work today, but decided to call out and head down to the walk in clinic.  Where I got some medication for my flare up, they put me on some prednisone, to reduce the inflammation, and I am still able to take OTC mucinex and  also do my breathing treatment as well.  I have a note that puts me off work for two days, but only going to take today off.  I will be back at work in the am.  It has been a pretty hard day.  I really do not think I could have made it at work today anyway, I am so achy, from all the coughing, I just want it all to stop.

Yesterday made it a solid month since mom has been gone, we made it, teary eyed, and full of memories, but we made it.  I made it.  I go to church every Sunday with my family, Trying to get back to God, trying to get closer to Him, and His Word. It will take time, but I am committed to doing this.

Another day, another way.  Keeping it moving forward.

 

Life…

Is precious, when major things happen, it makes you take stock.  Stock in the little things, in the big things, and in the between things. What’s really important.  My mom has been ill for over a month.  First with Gout,then something else that took over her body.  Come to find out she has leukemia.  So she has been in the Hospital since Sunday, and she will be transfered to the hospital in south Austin today., they will get her set up and take it from there.  Am I scared;yes I am.  We have to stay strong as a family unit, keep strong for her.  So much is going through my mind, but no time to process it all.  I work everyday, and my mind races.  My dad took time off to be with his wife,to which I commend,he needs that, she needs that. I know God has his hands of protection around us.  Major changes for this family unit,with God all things are possible.

Day 359:

Today I am…  Laid up!  That is right friends, and readers.  Mr.  Flu has come a knocking.  yesterday was awful, last night was terrible.  I had such a high fever,  I has to do the ice water thing to get it down, along with Tylenol.  I am still a little feverish, but nothing like last night.  So no work for me today.  Day quill severe cold and flu, hot tea, and plenty of water is on my agenda.

Today I am…  Laid up!

Day 174:

Today I am…  Congested.  That is right, today I am congested in my chest, I have been congested the past week or so, but it has gotten more so the past two days, and now today I am pained from all the coughing.  I have been also using my inhaler, because of the weather lately, it has kicked my asthma up, so I am taking mucinex and some other stuff that hopefully will help out.  It sucks when you can not breathe properly and all you do is cough.  This morning I called out of work, will not be going in today.  I really hated to do that, just for the fact that I need the money, but my health is much more important, and I feel that I would really not have made it through those 8 hours.  Today I am going to stay put, and get some rest, and take more medication.  Hope your Monday is starting a whole lot better than mine.

Today I am…  Congested.
