You know that feeling that you get when you have been so sick for a long time and you are starting to feel better now? Well, if you know, then you know what I am feeling right now! I love that feeling. You just feel so appreciative and kind of have a better outlook on life. Cheesy, I know. But it's true.
I had such a nasty sinus infection, and it just would not go away. I made poor Rick take me to urgent care on Sunday, and the doctor gave me some antibiotics, thankfully! I just started my new job, so I didn't want to have to call in sick. Well, in the past, the antibiotics usually kick in and make me feel a little better every day. Not this time :( I ended up calling in sick to work on Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, they even told me to go home a little bit early. I am glad that they were so understanding. I felt really bad leaving them high and dry so soon. Since I am pregnant, I couldn't take very much. I finally called my mid wife and they told me of some things I could take. Those helped a little, but on Thursday, I was just as bad as I was on Sunday. It was pretty frustrating.
Well, last night I decided that I had just had it. I asked Rick for a blessing. It seemed to be a more special experience than normal. After the blessing, I could breathe all night long (what a relief!) and I woke up feeling lots better. I still don't feel 100%, but it's just so nice to feel this much better!
PS- We find out if our baby is a boy or a girl on October 5... it's coming up!!!
