It is important for mother's to see that all their little successes through the week can become a big triumph.
However, this week I really can't say I had any small successes. I've been laid up sick in bed for 3 days!! It started overnight on Sunday, terrible stomach ache and vomiting!! I went through the day Monday in bed waiting for whatever it was to pass and it didn't, instead I started running a fever. So I got an appointment with the doctor on Tuesday morning. She has diagnosed me with pyelonephritis . She has run blood tests Tuesday, Wednesday and I have to go back tomorrow for another. I received a shot of antibiotics and have to take a round of antibiotics orally for 14 days. I'm still not 100%, but I am able to be up without feeling too fatigued.
My sister, who is an RN, told me that usually people are hospitalized with this. So... that can be my one success this week... I wasn't put into the hospital!!
This has NOT been fun! And poor Mike 5 days post surgery the poor guy was taking care of the kids and me instead of getting cared for himself.
I'm positive of one thing, next week I'm sure to have at least 3 small successes after getting my house back in order from being laid up! But.... none of them will be happening today!
