This isn't good. I would swear that if someone were to chop my head off right now, I would shake their hand as my bloody stump of a body hit the ground. I can't even imagine what Angela's going through right now. God bless you, Woman! I hope they're at least giving you some pain killers. I have a bacterial infection, a.k.a. a sinus infection. It is in my jaw and teeth, as well as the rest of my head. My teeth are absolutely killing me! I got medicine - Avelox on Saturday night. I took the first pill that night. I woke up half dead on Sunday to the point where Charlie actually took care of all three kids the entire day while I was in bed. Yeah, you know it's bad when he takes care of the kids and I'm still in the house. DH took the kids to his father's house at about 6:00 p.m. I was puking by 7:00 p.m. and then again a little after 9:00 p.m. This medicine doesn't specify that it must be taken with food. I took it with water and a couple Ritz crackers. My appetite is absent, even today. I called the doctor and she said to take the meds with a larger meal. Ok. I took my Singulair and Avelox at the same time (12:10 p.m.) with some pizza and crackers. Yeah - you guessed it! I puked again not 35 minutes later. Apparently, I need to take the meds separately and with dinner, which is a much larger meal. I tell you what, if I take it tomorrow night and puke again - that might be a slight clue that I shouldn't be on this medication!

Needless to say, the house is a mess, I get a throbbing pain everytime I bend down and my Mom will be here any minute from Michigan. Thank God for little miracles. I was hoping this would be an enjoyable couple of days, but unless these meds kick in...this is going to be one sour puss! Throbbing, aching, pounding....PAIN! Please pray for me and my pitifullness.

Thanks for reading my rant and please don't think less of me ;)
