It's been a while.... SORRY!!

Well, it's been a while, sorry about that guys!! MacKenzie's surgery went great the Friday before last... my crazy mom took lots of pictures, I'll have to post some soon. The day after the surgery (Saturday before last), I woke up feeling HORRible! My throat felt like I had strep and my uvula was so swollen that it was touching my tongue and gagging me... gross, I know! So I went to our local hospital, I knew better but was feeling too bad to drive into Austin and since I had already been all up in my mouth with a flashlight and figured anyone could detect the strep I saw, I wouldn't have too much of a problem. WRONG-O!!! The doc at the ER told me all I had was a sore throat (didn't even mention the uvula that was gagging me!) and told me to gargle with saltwater and eat ice cream! I was in tears as I left to go home bc I felt so yucky and knew something was wrong. So I had to wait out the weekend barely able to swallow. Finally, I got an appointment with my doctor Monday morning... went in, had obvious strep throat and a badly infected uvula! He gave me some antibiotics and Vicodin (oh yea!) to get me well. Well, by Wednesday I was still barely able to swallow and my chest was starting to get congested so called the doc again and he called me in some more meds... cough syrup with Codine! By Friday, I was having a hard time taking deep breaths and could barely sleep bc my chest did nothing but wheeze and whistle! My mom took me to an Austin hospital Friday morning and I was SO afraid I had pneumonia and that they were going to admit me but luckily, they gave me pain meds, 2 breathing treatments, an inhaler and steroids and I got to feeling a lot better by the weekend. I've still got the cough and am a little weak but getting much better! I slept so much last week, it should last me for the rest of the year!!!

On to the kiddos... MacKenzie was invited to play her violin in a children's orchestra, which I am so proud of!! She had her first rehearsal with them this past Saturday and it sounded soooo good! I was tickled pink!! Earlier that morning, my son, Mekhi had his first soccer game of the spring season and did oh so well! He scored 6 goals then started getting the ball down the field and handing it off to a teammate so they could get some goals in too! He did such a great job!!!

Yesterday was a real "lovely" day! Got home yesterday evening, not feeling too well after my first day back at work... felt a little weak. My brother immediately asked me for a ride to work (his truck is broken down... AGAIN!) so instead of driving him, I allowed him to take my car with my last words being "Don't wreck my car!". The reason for those words are because last weekend he used my mom's Tahoe and a motorcycle hit him from behind and now she's without a car until her's is fixed. So, about 20 minutes later, my brother calls my mom to let her know he had just rear-ended someone in MY CAR!!!! I was so mad, and still am!!! So, I then had to take Mekhi to soccer practice... so I told Mac she had to stay home because she had homework to finish, this of course pissed her off so she throws a massive fit and I leave her there with my mom. When I get home last night, I realize as I'm covering up with my feather comforter, feathers are flying all over the room like we had just mangled a bird! Come to find out, Mac cut a hole in my comforter while I was gone!! Thank God the doctor gave me those Vicodin!! LOL

So there's another day in my crazy life!!! Til next time........
