Our house has had the plague I swear!
It started about 2 weeks ago with Orion and me getting a yucky head cold..icky cough, nasal congestion, dripping down the back of your throat making it hurt like the dickens kind of head cold. The kind that makes you want to chop off your head, sit it on a shelf for a week, so you can feel better kind of head cold. I started to get better, Orion got better and so we planned to go snowboarding for the "greeting card" holiday weekend. We arranged a dog sitter, packed our bags, drove 2 1/2 hours up to the hotel and had a quiet evening of swimming in the hotel pool and relaxing in the hot tub. Saturday morning Orion wakes up with fever, swollen glands and a head ache, Hubby wakes up sniffling and body aches. So we opt to not ride that day, hung out in the hotel room, bought some OTC meds and of course....give the kid motrin and he feels great! Took him down to the pool, let him play, hubby feels like death is warming over and opts to sleep in the hotel room. Sunday...hubby wakes up completely miserable and I wake up with the body aches and fever and sniffling once again....sigh! We came home instead of going snowboarding...what a waste of money! Could have stayed home and been just as miserable without spending money on the bedroom! Today is Wednesday...I'm still sniffling, still feverish and still suffering with a head cold that apparently is different from the one I had before...the one I was recovering from! Seriously I hope it ends soon cause I truly am sick and tired of being sick and tired!
And in case you were wondering, no word on my sister yet. The doctor wants to run all tests, go over the results all together and then give her some kind of answers. Her next face to face with the doctor is March 1 and we should know more at that point. It seems crazy to me that they can't at least give her a little something after each of the tests, but apparently that's not the way this doctor works. This is the 3rd or 4th doctor my sister has been to for these symptoms, all the others have told her it's all in her head and she needs to go get therapy. But when you wake up in the morning with a back spasm so bad you can't move, then have to spend hours icing it just so you can get up to pee it can't possibly be just in your head. This happens to her often, along with twitching in her hands, head jerks, numbness down an entire side of her body, blacking out without taking drugs or drinking. Personally I can't believe how many doctors have told her it's all in her head, it just doesn't seem possible that she could make all this stuff happen to her. This doctor won't giveher any answers though until she has seen all the test results, so maybe she has a different way of thinking. The only think she will tell my sister is that she believes it is most likely Parkinson's or the beginning stages of MS.
