Adventures in Medicine and something completely different...The Mean Kitty Song
The Mean Kitty song
It's been a long while since I've posted and still, the visitors kept coming. Apparently, "Obama knows babies" was/is quite the hit. It's a testimony to my many posts(-ing) that I have anyone visiting at all! I know I have some of my blogger buddies checking me out but on the whole, the majority of visitors do their searches and google nicely steers them towards me.
One of the searches that apparently puts me 'up there' is 'the ugly parent syndrome'. I posted on that a long time ago and for some strange reason, there are many Aussie searches for that one. Hmmm..what does that signify eh??
Anyway, I've been awol from the blogosphere due to 'adventures in medicine'. Last week, my son's allergies spiked severely (unusually high cedar count and he's taking three different allergy shots even, he's got a slew of allergies, animal, food and various pollen with the occasional cockroach..yes yes)..anyhow..his histamines went to work and what was in his head ended up in his chest, causing tightness and that is for the most part his asthma related issues. We were in two separate ERs last week. One 'regular' one and the next day, I just thought no, he needs to go to the children's ER (20plus miles away). Then a follow up doctor's appointment with exrays (oh, and a chest xray at the children's ER)..pfff...and this week, a final doctor's follow up with the ok to go back to school..hooray! He had to endure a week of prelone (makes you hyper), on top of his numerous maintenance meds. Plus, in the beginning, on top of the medicine, I gave him stuff with guefenisin so his chest would get loose.
Then I had something going on (blood test showed too low potassium but I realized afterwards I had a LOT of black licorice over the past couple of weeks (one of my b'day presents) that depletes potassium in your body. So of course, a follow up blood test for me (low potassium in especially women can cause heart problems, think keeling over) so..I'll be glad when this month is done. I haven't had time to actually focus on what I had planned to do..
So hence, in the spirit of, 'and now for something completely different'..this kitty cat vid that my kids stumbled upon..
have a good weekend and hope you're safe and warm whereever you are..
