Her Temper-ature

As you have all read, MM has an undiagnosed auto immune disorder. She often spikes fevers & has mysterious rashes. As she gets older, it is getting harder & harder to take her temperature. She loses her temper when we do it. Due to her sensory stuff, she won't take an oral temp. She fights like mad when you do an axillary (armpit) & the ear one is hardly ever accurate. What's a mom to do?

Well, Christine has another contest that will help solve my problem. Go check out her blog & enter her contest for a Temporal Scanner.

I need to win this MORE than I need those cleaning supplies!

More Spring Cleaning

I found another giveaway with more cleaning stuff. It has arm & hammer baking soda stuff. So many uses, not a ton of cleaning products & much easier on the environment.

WooHoo. Hope I win this too!

Now, where is the contest I can enter to get a life or at least something to help my OCD about cleaning?

Spring Cleaning

I so need to get moving on this. It will be summer before I ever get it done. Maybe spring cleaning will get rid of all of our illnesses too.

Speaking of cleaning, one of my favorite blogs is having a giveaway. Christine is giving away a cool Win.dex product. Go check it out.

I hope I win this. I could use some good news over here!

AND I need a life, getting excited about the potential of winning a cleaning product!

Making a Knot & Hanging On

Yes, we are still here.

Recovery for both of us has been very difficult.

I have been on antibiotics & steriods just about non-stop since my surgery. As soon as I finish a round of antibiotics, I get another infection within 2-3 days. I have to take the prednisone or else I will have an allergic reaction to the one of the few antibiotics I can take (I am only mildly allergic to this one, versus severely allergic to the others). It is just like last time. I am worried. I might have to have another surgery cause it will not drain like it should. I have been at the doctor every 10 days since the my 7 day post-op follow up. Add up all those co-pays plus meds!

MM went back to school for a few days. She got sick within a few days of being back. She was on spring break this last week & has had a fever nearly the whole time. We are going back to the doctor tomorrow. I think she might have an ear infection now on top of her barky, croupy cough. She has been out of sorts, not "here" and EXTREMELY crabby.

We are still looking for that Give Me a Break line.

P.S. don't know if any of you are addicted to Post Secret like I am, but I saw this post card today. my heart felt so much sorrow cause it could have been sent in by my DH. It wasn't cause he doesn't know about post secret, but still...
