After A Brief Break...

I am back! It's been a quiet but moderately eventful few days... mostly in how I managed to clean house propped up with a ton of pillows... or had to stand and point at what I needed to have done. Sunday night was a very rough night, sleep wise, and Monday, I was requested by DH to "do nothing, not even bend over to pick something up." Monday night, sleep was interrupted a few times, by aches and feeling sick and hot. Yesterday... again, I mostly did nothing. Last night... I took Ambien, which took too long to kick in, but once it did, I slept all night.

During the last few days of "doing nothing"... DH has managed to get the dog bathed, clean and vacuum the entire house, and except for my actually loading the clothes into the washer, he did 4 loads of laundry and helped me fold it all and put his stuff away. He's done dishes, made lunch, cooked dinner on the grill, watered plants, worked on Miss J's lawn mower, walked the dog and groomed him... all the while, fretting and hovering over me, lavishing me with tons of kisses and I love yous.

I have also skipped yesterday in taking my meds... and felt great by the end of the evening. Today, I took everything except for my Avandia... and feel pretty good. I only have a slight tinge of anything near the right side of my chest. That medicine was the only new one aside from the Ambien that I am taking... and I didn't take any Ambien over the weekend while I was hurting so badly. It's not necessarily the medicines that get me, but the side effects of those medicines! I wish for once I could be the textbook example of how it's suppose to work rather the one of how it works with side effects! =)

Today... all I have done was to go back to sleep after getting DH out the door to work... and then have breakfast around 10. I took a shower this morning to warm up... it's cold and rainy this week and I refuse to turn on the heat! Nolli and I went to the post office this morning and I will soon start some dough for homemade pizza for dinner tonight. (Yummm... pepperoni!) I will quietly putter around, but that's about it... doing nothing, really!

Thanks for reading... and for your prayers! Be blessed!
