I have been so sick lately. About a month or so ago I had a sinus infection with tonsillitis, and it seriously took me about a month to get over. Then I awoke in the middle of Friday night with a sore throat. I thought that I was just coming down with a little cold or something, but it continued to get worse. After a Sunday nap, I woke up with a fever and my lungs were hurting extremely bad. It hurt to breathe. My life saver was an inhaler that I had left over from previous illness. My awesome mom took care of Mattie for me so I could get some rest. On Monday morning I was running an even higher fever, and really having a hard time breathing, so I decided that I had better go to the doctor. Turns out it was some nasty bronchial infection going around, and I had to get a breathing treatment and a cortisone injection, along with another round of antibiotics and cough syrup with Lortab in it. That definitely helped a lot! My poor little niece Viviana has to go through this kind of stuff and worse all of the time.
By Tuesday I was still feeling pretty crappy, but Matt was suppose to get into Orlando at about 9am, which made me a very happy girl. Well, 10:30 came and Matt called me to tell me that there had been some maintenance problems and that he was in Atlanta. He said that it could be hours before he would be home. I was feeling so sick and so sorry for not being able to take care of Mattie, that I just started crying. Matt then says to me, "Don't cry. April Fool's! I'm on my way home right now. "Maybe it would have been funnier if I hadn't been on my DEATHBED! He redeemed himself though. He walked through the door with beautiful "Get Well Soon" flowers. I'm feeling better with each passing day and hoping to not be sick again for a while!
PS. Another Mattie moment... when I was crying, my little angel saw me and asked me if I was sad? She then climbed up into my bed and laid her head down on my chest and wrapped her arms around my neck. She said, "Don't cry Mommy. It's alright. It's alright Mommy. I love you!"
