Standing in the bathroom at Sweet Peppers, I suddenly talk to myself in the mirror saying, "If only I were normal again." I realize then that there might be someone in the stall next to me. Thankfully there wasn't as I'm sure they would have thought I had officially gone insane. In saying that, the reason why I haven't been around or blogged much in the last couple of days have resulted from me not feeling well. I'm still not up to par so to speak but I hope that at some point soon, I will regain my health and feel back to "normal" again so to speak. It all started with a fullness in my ear that I thought was an ear infection. After 2 doctor's visits, it still wasn't much better so I took myself to an ENT. He looked in my ear and did a couple of tests and surmised that he thought I was suffering from TMJ because at this point, I had pain going all the way down the left side of my neck where my ear was feeling yucky. That was about 3 days ago. The pain is still there reaching into my jaw area and even some stiffness feeling in my chest which I hope is just sinus issues and from all the antibotics. So I am functioning right now on tylenol and antibotics in the morning and anti-inflammatories and antibotics at night. I would say I'm feeling much better today but I'm not going to push my luck :) Needless to say, kids don't always realize that mommy is feeling bad so being sick with 3 is tough. Being sick when you have one child that just does not understand at all is really tough! She thinks that super mom still exists and can get up and down, up and down, up and down every second of the day. It's exhausting. But I have tried my best to smile through the pain. So you can imagine how excited I was when grandma called asking if I would like some visitors, her and my niece Chelsea. I was so thrilled and relieved, I could have done the jig pain or no pain. It has been so nice having them here and I am feeling better since the meds have kicked in. I have appreciated their extra hands more than I can express. I pride myself on being a healthy person so not feeling well has not sat well with me especially since I'm not the sit down kind of person. I love to be up and moving and going. My little man's birthday was Saturday. I am so proud of him and can't believe he's already 5! We took him out to lunch today and he had a blast. This weekend we will celebrate at the creek with cake and swimming. He is so excited. Happy Birthday little man!! I love you so much! My littlest one is very fussy, so signing off for now! Hopefully next blog will be much more informative with happy tidings!
