Friday Update - - - HELP!!

HELP!!!!! I've got cabin fever and I'm not even sick.

Friday was a better day for Mom. The pain is about the same - not great - not horrible. She is in much better spirits now. She is coming out of the mullie grubs. Her nights are still not going well, but her days are tolerable. She is now much more like her self.

Well, guess whose sick now? My Dad. He had a 101.1 fever at one point on Friday. He started coming down with it on Thursday and didn't even go with us to the doctors apt. for Mom. He said he was not aching as bad Friday evening, but he was still very weak and very quickly exerted himself when he walked from one room to the next.

Jonathan was back to the doctor this morning at 9 a.m. and didn't get back home until 11:30 or so. He had to wait forever to see the doctor. She said it wasn't pneumonia, but just still very bad asthmatic bronchitis. She doubled his steroid medicine and sent him to the hospital to get a chest x-ray just to make sure nothing else was going on. Everything turned out ok except for showing that he definitely has the bronchitis - VERY BAD. He is now off work till at least Tuesday. I have never seen him this kind of sick. He has other sicknesses i.e. MIGRAINES, but not this kind of stuff. I feel so sorry for him. He is completely 100% miserable.

I am still hanging in there with just my chest cough - nothing else - thank goodness.
Lindsey is doing great as well. Her normal runny nose, but that's probably because she is teething on 4 new teeth.

On a different note ~ THANK YOU!!!!

Thank you so much to all the people in the church that have been bringing in food after Mom's surgery. We had 4 great meals brought in and it has lasted for longer then that. It has been great and so very helpful and especially so, since I am the one having to take care of everyone and would normally have to be doing the cooking as well.

The ladies from Mom's work delivered a $60. gift certificate to Honeybaked Ham.

One of the company's Mom works with sent a Honeybaked Ham along with the works of - Scalloped Potatos, Maccaroni and Cheese, and Cheesecake. Yummy!! That came on Thursday, but I think we're going to actually start eating it on Saturday since we still had so much other food still left.
