Well, after five days of non-stop illness and genuine drama, I can say – with absolute certainty – that I DETEST winter and everything to do with winter. There is nothing like trying to drag your child, who has been out of commission for nearly a week, over mountains of snow and ice. She is complaining about being tired and that she needs to lie down. I am disabled. I walk with a cane. I cannot carry someone who is nearly as tall as I am. I can’t even lift a baby anymore. Ugh.
We sit in this doctor’s office, she tells us that it’s likely a virus – or maybe the flu! Yippee!! – but they end up testing for flu and it’s negative. Thank God!!!! I am sooo done with sick. I am sooo done with winter. Where the heck is spring???
I know that she is feeling better because her sense of humor is returning. She is exactly like my husband. It’s like being double-teamed by the same person. Help!!! Anyway, she was laughing a little and making some jokes of her own.
Perhaps that is all the spring I need………
Peace & painlessness,
