A little bit of heaven

I thought I was on my way to the pearly gates this weekend. I was sicker than I have ever been. I visited urgent care Friday afternoon for help with pain in my right ear that extended all over that side of my face and head. An ear infection. Bless those poor little babies - what agony they go through. Got RX for antibiotics, topical and internal, and then spent the entire weekend in bed, sweating through fever over 102 degrees. Fortunately my DH was sufficiently recovered from his near-miss with pneumonia to wrangle the boys. Woke up Sunday morning with a stiff neck - oh no, DH bolts upright - can you touch your chin to your chest? Nope. Now I lay back in delirium, wondering if I have meningitis, remembering our friend from McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, who DIED from meningitis - he thought he had the flu, was in bed with a fever, finally called 911 - but too late. So we went back to urgent care - dear friends came and took the boys to Sunday school while we went. Doctor didn't think I need worry about meningitis so it was back to bed to sweat it out. In the early evening, I felt a bit better and picked up my knitting. I was able to complete 1-1/2 of the cable repeats of the Ripple & Rock strip for my afghan. Am on the mend... hallelujah!

Everyone gets sick in my house on their own time. When I do, it's like the world has stopped. Glad you're better, or well enough to knit!
