For his birthday, I had planned for some buddies to come over tonight, make a bon fire and just "hang out." Then tomorrow we were celebrating with his family and two things he loves.....Titans and Thanksgiving dinner. We were actually going to cook a turkey!
But, Thursday night he said he was getting sick. By Friday he sounded as if he had been stung by bees and his tongue was swelling. We went to the walk in clinic to get medicine because the M.D. (Mother doctor) that I am knew that he had strep throat. But in the waiting room I learned two things: 1st he has a swollen uvula and two he was to come home "to let the virus take its course." Does anyone else out there HATE the word virus? When a doctor says that, I hear, "You foolish woman. You have wasted your money on this copay. You have wasted your time trying to settle your crazy children down so they won't embarass you in the waiting room. And most of all, I am giving you nothing to feel any relief, so good luck getting better. Ha ha ha ha (that is an evil laugh)."
But, the girls and I would not let the day slip away without homemade birthday cards and birthday cake.
Happy Birthday Chris...I guess we will celebrate later!
