Whine with permission

I can handle pain.  I went on to have three children…clearly I can handle pain.  I don’t easily stay home from work.  I just don’t.  I don’t see what difference it makes to feel sick at home or sick at works.  Still going to feel sick either way.

Today however I stayed home from work.  I have had flu like symptoms since Christmas.  Friday night I often woke up with a sore throat but since I was handling Zander and his horrible earache I didn’t have much energy left over to give myself much attention.

Yesterday I couldn’t swallow.  Could hardly talk.  Not because I didn’t have a voice but because it just hurt too much.  I actually went to the doctor this morning (another thing I don’t easily do) and according to him I have reason to complain lol ….. so see, I can whine with permission.

I have a throat infection that has left my uvula so swollen that at times it feels as though I cannot breath at all and talking is just painful and I have blister like sores in my throat.  Add to that middle ear infection in both ears and I’m set for a lot of pain….no … wait… my body wanted to put me through more and I started vomiting (no I suppose you didn’t want to know that) but do you know how much THAT hurts a throat!?

So poor Zander hasn’t had much of a birthday with a quiet, sick mother.  I haven’t even had a taste of his cake!  I suppose this is one way to start a diet ….

    Oh no way, how truly awful. Zander looked like he had a fab time anyway. Don’t stress about work, no one engraves, *she never took a day off sick* on their tombstone ;). Get better soon!

  8. And then we go and pitch up for a visit and drag you out of bed. Sorry about that, I could immediately see how bad you felt. Hoping yesterday was the worst of it and that you’re feeling loads better today.
