Early Saturday morning I woke up feeling like someone was stabbing knives into the right side of my head. After writhing in bed for a bit, I decided to head to the ER to at least get some help with the pain. It was excruciating! The doctor said I had a "raging ear infection." Seriously? I don't think I have any memory of ever having an ear infection in my life. I started some antibiotics and took some Extra Strength Tylenol and 24+ hours later I'm feeling better. I still can't taste or smell anything, which is kind of strange.
Elijah and I are both still making non-stop coughing music around the house. Hopefully this week brings health for both of us. I can't decide if the sickness has made bed rest worse or better, but I'm ready for it to be done.
Dan has a menu planned for the Superbowl tonight and I'm wishing I was able to taste some of his yummy snacks.
An Elijah funny.. Yesterday I told him that Dan would have to fix one of his dvds (that he calls "D-D-Ds") before he would be able to watch it. By "fix" I meant that all of the gooey fingerprints would need to be cleaned off of it. Elijah said, "Fix? Ok!" and walked to the kitchen junk drawer. He opened it and grabbed some tape out and brought it to me. "Tape, Mommy. Fix!" :)
We have been watching WAY too much tv lately, way more than I like for Elijah to watch, but I really don't know of many other ways to pass the time in the situation we are in. We are trying to play a lot of trains and puzzles but we can only do so much of that. This morning Dan took Elijah to the play area in the mall to run around a bit. I hate that I couldn't go along, but I'm glad the two of them were able to get out of the house.
Elijah is napping so I think I will go try to nap for a bit, too.
