Red-Eyed Monster

If you hadn’t heard (or read, to be more specific) from me this recent week, it’s because I hadn’t been blogging. Well, no secret there, he he. What is not secret is I got sent home as I was beginning to turn into a red-eyed monster….

sore-eyes

But don’t you worry, that’s nothing violent or controversial, definitely not mutating. Just means I got conjunctivitis, the pink eye, sore eyes. Total bummer, folks, and another level of eeeww-ness whenever I wake up from long sleep. Well, if you ever suffered from pink eye even once in your life, you’d know what I mean.  Getting better, though, 90% there.

Mind you, it’s not just me, but it’s currently “doing the rounds.” I got my “pink” (well, red) ones from the youngest in the house. The older boy got it from him as well, but I got it the worst. Husband’s oh-so-lucky he doesn’t have it. Well, so far.

I have stayed home for the rest of the week. But I, thinking this would be a great time to catch up on my writing, assumed wrong. Had to deal with other matters that got me physically and mentally tired, there’s no time to write. Priorities. Pfft. You grow up then you got priorities. Boo! Down with priorities! So not fair >p

Currently, I am still feeling that tiredness, but I didn’t want to not say hello to my pals here and bloggerize with you a bit. Hope to be 100% back in the next two days. Meanwhile, I’ve got other posts just waiting to be published.

Blog and Roll, guys!!!

Fever All Through the Night #atozchallenge2015

F of A to ZApologies for not posting for days. I’m going through more rough times so please bear wth me. As you can probably already guess from the title, I had FEVER. I wanted to write about something else for my F-post, something I’ve been meaning to talk about but I was not able to that day. Thought I could still make up for it as the day just begun elsewhere but some other priorities came up.

Long story short, Thursday afternoon, I noticed some swelling that got worse and scary by the evening and then I got high fever that made my husband really worry. Surprisingly I still did not feel like it was that high, though, I took my own temperature — 39.2 Celsius, then 39.4… Fortunately, it went back to 39.2 and lower, thanks to my patient but very worried caregiver.

Friday morning, we went to an OB (a new one because my former OB’s clinic schedule was still in the afternoon and we couldn’t wait any longer). We had to know if it had to do with my recent pregnancy. The doc wasn’t exactly sure but gave me prescription. We will have to observe first if the swelling will stop, otherwise, she might declare the need for surgery to drain and stop the swelling…YIPES.

Okay, to be perfectly honest, I’m not that scared about the surgery part, though I can’t promise I can say the same if the time really comes. I’m more worried about the expenses. We’ve basically used up what we had and got paying for my recent hospital bills, other loans and other important stuff.

So please, please, please, once you have the time, and I know you’ll have the time, even right after reading this, pray or wish that things will get better for me, for us. Please pray or wish for the swelling to stop and to go back to normal, to never happen again, and to not cause any further trouble in the future.

That said, please bear with me if I can’t regularly post. It won’t be easy to catch up at the moment.
