A Difference in a Day

 From yesterday at the ER.  My face was so puffy!  I cannot believe how much I share here-especially pictures!

It was nice to sleep (mostly) through the night.  Don't get me wrong, I've still got a nasty cough!  I made sure to apply my eye drops immediately before going to bed.  When I woke up around 4 am they were sticking together a little bit but nothing like what I've woken up to the past two nights.  I was able to clean them and add more drops.  They sting because my eyes are so irritated but it only lasts a few minutes.  They blur my vision slightly but nothing too bad to complain about (I know y'all are tired of that!).  I've still got lots of green snot- Sorry!  I'm not sure when that will stop.  Let me just say that it still kills to sneeze and I avoid it at all cost.

When we stopped by Walmart on the way home yesterday I forgot that I needed to purchase a humidifier.  Boo!  My throat is irritated and probably will be for a little while longer.  I need to be breathing moister air when possible-especially at night.  I'm planning to make my outing to Walmart the only one today.  The steroid shot gives the impression that I'm all better but I still need to rest.

Much to my happiness, I've gotten on a great routine of keeping up with the laundry.  I only need to wash and dry all of the clothes we wore yesterday along with a few other things.  I had always told Brandon that I was just too tired after working and too overwhelmed on my one off day to keep with stuff like that.  Even he's been surprised at how much I can get done even when I'm sick and not feeling well.  I just needed more time!

Here I am this morning.  You may not believe it, but I'm looking better.  My face is much less swollen from being sick.  I've noticed some facial changes from the pregnancy but nothing that anyone who doesn't see me on a daily basis would notice.  My eyes are still red but nothing as scary as they have been in days past.  I'm looking forward to putting my face on tomorrow and heading to work and Church for Wednesday Night Supper.

And here's my nemesis!  I couldn't stand it.  I'm only drinking a small amount of Orange Juice and will sip and savor it.  Of course I crave what makes me the sickest.  It's probably good to get the Vitamin C since I've been so sick as well.  I'm sure that I'll be crunching tums, ice and gum for the rest of the day but it's worth it.

Thank you to my loyal readers.  I know that I've been out of it the past few days but I'm so looking forward to feeling better in the coming days.  We've got a super busy week planned and I'm now feeling much more prepared to get through it!
