A "Sick Day"


I feel awful today. I was unbelievably tired this morning, even though I went to bed relatively early last night. Ernie slept with me on the bed all night. I think he was still groggy from the anesthesia. I was able to carry him out to pee before bed. Then we both crashed.

On the way home from the vet yesterday, I had a nasty headache, which I thought was because I hadn’t eaten much. We stopped at McDonald’s and got some food on the way home, and I also ate some apple pie.

I had an awful time getting up this morning. When I woke up and took my meds, I crawled back into bed (for just a few minutes, I thought), but it was close to 8 a.m. when I woke again. Later this morning, I started with a sick stomach and a headache again. I’ve taken Frova and Pepto-Bismal, but I still feel awful. Even worse, I had to reschedule Sabrina and my appointment with John until the 30th. Rats. I haven’t seen her in nearly 4 weeks. I miss her.

I also missed my tutor refresher course at OASIS. I was looking forward to that. The Rhodes tutor breakfast is tomorrow. I hope I feel well enough for that.

I got an email notice from my bank that I was overdrawn. So I quickly transferred money this morning. I didn’t realize that my old renter’s insurance company had dented my account, so I called and cancelled that policy. I was able to get a policy with GEICO for double the insurance for less than half the cost.
Ernie is still not feeling great. He took his antibiotics last night and ate some yogurt and a cookie. He didn’t want his cookie until this afternoon. I gave him some yogurt around noon, but haven’t given him the antibiotics. I’ll try a little later. He’s been sleeping most of the day.

I know something is wrong with Hannah. She’s not eating and has lost a lot of weight. She is drinking a lot, though. Probably she has diabetes like Tilda Lou. I feel sad. Maybe I will see if she will eat moist food. I’ll get some tomorrow.

I just wish Sabrina would talk more to me and wish I could see her.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
