First - thanks for all of your kind words. I really was not feeling well on Sunday!!!
Jay forced me to call our friend who is an ENT on Sunday. It wasn't that I didn't want to call him, but I didn't want to be that person who tried to get free medical advice. ;) Well, he wanted to see me to make sure that there wasn't something more that needed to be done.
So, I went and saw him Monday morning. By that time I was already feeling better. He looked at my throat and said that he didn't need to do anything to it, but I had better let him know if I didn't get any better. He also told me that if I get one more tonsil infection he would suggest that I have them taken out. :(
So, here I am a few days later, and my antibiotics are obviously working. I can swallow, breathe, and it doesn't look like I have a goiter on the side of my neck.
This is jut another example of how thankful I am that I have access and can afford good healthcare. Although Urgent Care is twice my typical co-pay (as was the ENT) I could afford it. I didn't think about the money at all when I decided to go to Urgent Care, or to get my prescriptions filled. How blessed am I!!! Because I went when I did - and got the medicine started when I did - I got better very quickly. All I could think about was the people that Mayan Families works with - how if something like this would happen to them - it would probably get to the point of it being an emergency - and even then they may not have the ability to do anything about it.
Alex has a really bad cold - so I'm hoping that it doesn't turn into another ear infection.
Here's a picture of Alex's first ornament - he made this at day care.
We've decided to only put up our little tree this year. It's pre-lit and we aren't putting any ornaments on it. Alex loves the tree. He likes to go up to it, point, and say "Mama, WOW." His latest phrase is "No way" - which he says with a twinkle in his eye.
