So jacob wasn’t feeling well when we got up this morning and I debated on if I should go to work or not, but he seemed to get better once he finally ate.
Then my manager phoned to tell me it was such a slow day today that she only had two clients booked in the afternoon and I had nothing so if I wanted I could take a voluntary day off. She assured me she wasn’t cutting my hours but there was no point in me coming in if there was nothing to do. So now I’m sitting here w a kid that seems to be fine now and nothing to do. Maybe ill take and vacuum the porch and work on my cross stitching project and then have a nap w jacob and then take him outside for a run around the block! Days like today I wish I lived closer to a mall so we could go walk around for a couple hours! Ack! Well I’m gonna go now!

I’m sorry it’s been so long for an update, things have been pretty wild lately, i’ve recently returned to work and all that fun stuff, i love my job!

Then yesterday i went to bed with a sore neck, took an advil and went to sleep. woke up with Jacob jumping on my tummy and causing my neck to hurt even more then the night before. i couldn’t move my neck so i called my doctor’s office to get an appt and as usual my dr was booked so i went to another dr in the office. Had to call my manager to tell her i wouldn’t be into work.

She checked me and asked me some questions and decided to send me to get blood work done as i had pretty much all the symptoms for early¬†Meningitis, except the fever, but i had taken another advil just before i had left the house. She told me to stay at home and take my temperature later in the day when the advil would’ve worn off.

I Got blood work done, then went home and slept for almost 4 hrs. with a Magic Bag wrapped around my neck, bc i wasn’t allowed to take anymore medication. God Bless those Magic bags!!!

So by 5 pm i hadn’t heard from the dr and i wanted to know what was going on so i could tell my manager what was going on, the receptionist said she’d get a nurse to call me back. well half hour later a nurse did call me back and she said that my dr liked personally calling his patients to review the results so she’d leave him a note to contact me immediately.

My dr doesn’t work until the afternoons, so guess who’s off work yet again! eff! Bc if i did have Meningitis it’s contagious and that’s the last thing i need to bring into work! ugh!!!

Well i need to sleep. i thought i’d post so if anyone is reading this blog that they’d know i’m still alive… barely… but alive…

I’ll update another day about everything else going on.
