I missed grandparent's day at the kids' school on Tuesday because I was very sick during the night. I was supposed to read to Reece's class at 7:50 AM, and Aubrey's class at 8:40 AM, and they were both looking forward to it (so was I). After reading to the class, the child and grandparents were invited to the library for snacks. I was afraid to go; I needed to be close to the restroom. :o(
I'm not sure what was wrong with me. I have a cold, but don't think that would cause the symptoms I had. I suspect food poisoning from the broccoli and cheese soup I had from Schlotskys. Cyrise had the same soup from there a couple of weeks ago, and she got sick, too. I am never eating at Schlotskys again. That is not an experience I want to repeat.
I felt awful, but Mom has a doctor appointment next week, and he wanted her to have a chest x-ray and lab work done a week before. So we had to go and do that, meaning we had to go to two different places nowhere near each other. We had lunch after that, although I was afraid to eat much. I had some sweet potato fries and they stayed down. Mom always enjoys eating out.
I'm still not feeling very well, and suspect that I'll have to have a blood transfusion tomorrow when I go to the BMT clinic. I'm super tired and a bit shaky with just a little exertion.
Today I went to Mom's, made her some lunch and did the usual stuff over there. Now the kids are home from school, and Reece is here with me. I made a deal with him--he has to practice writing for awhile before we turn on any videos. He practiced for a bit, and now he's watching Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs for the gazillionth time. He plays while he watches, acting out the movie with some little toys. He's always been a very interactive video watcher.
Aubrey just came in crying because Reece's big rubber shark is coming apart at the seams. She wanted a bandaid. I put a piece of sticky medical tape on him, and she laughed. She carried him off as happy as a lark.
Have a great evening.
