Bad Day Anyone?
Ever have one of those days where you just want to run away?
My week started badly with my children being dropped home by my Ex for me to then learn that she’d been to the ER. Seems she’d walked in front of someone on a swing and got a kick in the mouth.. Lovely! So we’re waiting for her two front teeth to possibly turn black and her face to generally heal. She looks like something from Planet of the Apes with all the swelling and she’s only 3.
Fast forward from Sunday to Tuesday. She’s been told not to touch the cake on the table until she’s eaten her pizza. While I’m cutting up the pizza into miniscule pieces for her sore mouth to be able to handle, she decides to make a grab for said cake. In the process, she leans in a bowl of hot soup and burns her arm. ~head desk~
So we’re about to rush her off to see the nurse at the doctors surgery when my 5 year old sun decides to run away. He runs up a skateboarding ramp and taunts me with ‘you can’t catch me’ from the top.
Red rag to a bull!
I decide (stupidly in retrospect) to climb the ramp to catch him but as I reach the top, off he goes and he’s legged it out the park and I’m stuck at the top. Its been raining to add to my misery and I decide the best way down is to jump off the side instead of braving the ramp (due to an unfortunate lack of grips on the soles of my shoes. In future I shall not be a cheapskate but shall by the proper brand of boots not some cheap imitation :lol: ).
Anyway, so I jump and just as I jump, I slip and smack my sizeable backside off the concrete edge. OUCH! My feet hit the ground and I slip again but luckily stay standing but have now jarred my entire body.
I then proceed to chase the little blighter for two blocks until the tone of my voice evidently indicated that he should stop in fear of his life (although I was more in fear of mine at that moment).
So we get my daughter to the nurse and some cream, a bandage, a sticker for being good and two chocolate buttons later we drop her off at school. For any mother that would have been enough but someone up there seems to find it funny to give me as many problems in a day as possible.. I swear, you couldn’t write my life for money!
So its been about an hour since the initial run round the block after my son, but I still can’t breathe properly and am getting upset about it. So its back to the doctors about that. I haven’t had a final diagnosis of lupus yet although they seem to think it probably is that. Have to have a facial biopsy done to confirm. But they’re concerned now that my breathing problems could be due to scar tissue on my lungs caused by lupus.
Jolly good! :cry:
Had a chest x-ray that afternoon and don’t get the results for a week. Have to go on 4th March for an ECG and some other breathing test.
I get home and call the doctors about the urine sample I handed in that day. Have been handing in regular samples as I’ve had +1 protein in the last few and they tell me that it had so much protein in it they’ve had to send it away to the lab and that I should call back on Friday for my results.
I knew I should have stayed in bed on Tuesday! Does anyone else have really bad days like that? I could sure use the laugh at someone elses misery for a change!
But hey, if we didn’t laugh then we’d cry, right?!
