I woke up with a terrible headache this morning. My head felt like someone was hammering a hammer off of it.
I didnt go in to college. I couldnt face it. I knew I couldnt concentrate on anything with such a bad headache. I took two paracetamol and went back to bed.
I didnt get up until mom came over at 1 o’clock. Mom only came over for an hour. She wanted to cut my grass while the weather was good. I got up and had a cup of tea, my headache was gone by then.
I am feeling much better now. My PA Nuala who normally does wednesday evenings texted me to say she’s ill so she wont be coming tonight. Its too late to get cover. But thats ok, I didnt have much for her to do anyway.
I’m going to just chill for the afternoon. I might watch some tv, read and listen to some music while I catch up on my email.
That was me today in work. I barely made it through work!
I got very sleepy! I needed to just go home and go to bed!
I also had a headache and a pain in my stomach!
I went to mom and dads after work, and I went right to bed! I didnt even eat dinner!
I slept from 5 Pm until 10 Pm! So well, thats me fucked now for tonight!
Ah well. I can read and finish up my book. I am loving the new Cathy glass book!
I dont have plans for the weekend, so its kinda ok if my schedule is off.
At least my headache and tummy ache are gone!
Remember a few days ago I told you my cousin christine had a baby? And we all thought everything was fine with them? Well it wasnt.
When the baby was born he looked ok. But he didnt make any sound. He cried I think at birth but then once in the ward afterwords he never made a sound, or moved. He had tiny ears, and he wasnt feeding properly.
The doctors came that evening, and looked him over. It turns out he has downs syndrome. He is also deaf. His ear canals arent developed properly.
His heart and lungs are very weak too. He’s gone to neonatal and is in an incubator now. We dont know if he’ll make it. We’re hoping he will but literally its hour to hour. He’s very very ill.
If you pray please pray he’ll pull through.
We’re all devastated. Its awful. How something as happy as the birth of a new baby can turn into heartache within hours. Its so so sad.
Please pray he’s going to make it. I know he’s badly disabled, but my cousin can deal with that. We just want him to live.
My parents are going to visit their long time friend this morning. He’s dying. He hasn’t got long to live.
He’s been asking to see them. He’s got a tumour on his lung. Poor guy. I feel for him.
I don’t envy them having to visit him, I think it will be hard, visiting someone whose dying isn’t going to be easy.
What do you say? How do you handle it? I don’t think I could do it.
I do think though that its good they will go, before he passes on. It will be good for them to be able to say a goodbye. This may be the last time they see him.
I had a long hot soak in a bubble bath. It was bliss. I’ve decided not to go volunteering tomorrow. I think I need to try to relax as much as possible. I do have to go to college on wednesday, as its our second last class before the summer break, and we have work to hand up so I do need to go in. Thats ok though I dont mind. I am also going to go to slimming world this week. I dont want to miss that. Other than that though I am not going to do anything else this week. If I feel better by Friday I’ll go volunteering then, but if I dont I wont. I’m still at my parents but will be going back home to my own house tomorrow. I hope someone is going to call me from the pest control place tomorrow so that I can hopefully get rid of my wasp issue. The weathers picking up now and if I dont do something to get rid of them soon things could get a lot worse. I dont want that. If I hear nothing by wednesday I’ll give them another call. Mom is still out with my sister. They are at a local park, a nature park, where there are a lot of trails. My sister took her two pugs, and if I’d have gone I would have taken nitro with me too. I am glad I didnt go. There will be plenty of time for things like that when I feel better.
I slept well last night. I woke up feeling a little better today. The pain is still there but it has lessened. I took my morning antibiotic, and will take my afternoon one around 4 PM. I am not doing much today, mom and my sis went to a local nature park, I decided that I needed to stay home, to get well. I’ve been reading, and enjoying that. My tummy still hurts a little. The pain was quite bad, and its taking a while for it to go away completely. I don’t have a fever though which is good. I never had one which I am very glad about. I’m still taking pain relief but my urine has stopped burning, and overall I feel a lot better. I think the worst is over now.
I’m shutting down for tonight. I am going to go to bed and read. I need to take another antibiotic at midnight, so I’ll stay up for a while but I will go lay down. Good night everyone, talk to you all tomorrow!
