Another weekend list, shot to hell...

Friday I was all wound up waiting for news on my mom's surgery, and I attributed the crappy way I was feeling to that combined with an allergy attack.  By the time I left for home, I was shivering so uncontrollably that I could hardly walk or drive.  Got into a hot bath, and then went to bed.  Dad called while I was in the bath to say that mom's surgery had been moved from 3:30 to 5:30 (he couldn't have called at 4:00 and told me?)  Chills, aches bad enough to make me head for the percoset, and sweats.  Not allergies.

Mom's surgery went VERY well.  She's still at the hospital (which is good, in my opinion), and they may end up sending her to a rehab center for physical therapy.  We'll probably know today.  I kind of hope they do.

Yesterday morning I decided to take my temperature.  103F.  That's no allergy attack.  :-)  Took lots of advil, went back to bed.

Today is better, but still not myself.  I may try *one* errand and see how it goes.

I'm tired of being sick all the time.

*hug* Oh you poor thing. :-( Stress can greatly lower the body's resistance to every bug and virus that comes along, so that might be part of what's going on with you. It's so difficult to watch our parents aging.

Hopefully things will get better for both you and your Mom. Rest and get well.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that it wasn't something simple like allergies. I hope you're feeling better.

Glad your Mom's surgery went well but sorry you aren't feeling well. Stress plus working motherhood puts alot of strain on the body. Hope you are feeling better soon.
