It's Not Tuberculosis!

Thought I'd post a quick update for those of you who may still be checking in. I have Bronchitis, Viral Pneumonia AND Mono (caused by the Epstein-Barr virus). Yeah, Mono, the kissing disease! So who in Utahrd had Mono? We sort of recollect someone saying they had it or maybe their kids had it, but we don't remember who? Don't worry I'm not looking for someone to blame, I'm just wondering how the hell I got it.

Thank goodness I tested negative for (TB) Tuberculosis, my doctor had me freaked out a little.

I've been on short term disability and will continue to be through Wednesday when I go back to the doctor for another follow up. She'll let me know whether I'll be out longer or not. Unless I start feeling better I have no idea how I'll go back so soon. I know I've been out since we were on vacation, but I can't seem to shake this exhaustion.

Hopefully death doesn't always "happen in three's" cause my uncle is losing his battle with cancer in the next day or two, my grandma is having open heart surgery tomorrow and I've tripled up on my illnesses. Please send your happy healing thoughts to my grandma Parma in Utah, she's the sweetest lady on earth. I don't even want to think about the possibility of losing her.

Back to my nebulizer.

UPDATE: Granny is out of surgery and she's ok. She'll be in ICU for 3-4 days, then a private room for a week or two. Thanks for all the good thoughts.

I honestly haven't even kissed Jory since Bear Lake, he won't go near me when I have a cold sore aka fever blister. I don't blame him, I wouldn't kiss the herps either. I didn't even hug many people because I was sick. It's still a puzzle.

Will Return Soon...I Promise!

I'm sure there is at least one person out there waiting to hear all about our crazy Utahrded trip. I'm really sorry but you'll have to wait a little bit longer, I'm currently recovering from Severe Bronchitis, possibly pneumonia (waiting to hear back on the blood tests) with Sinus congestion crap. I'm extremely exhausted and had to get online to pay our mortgage...but while I was here I thought I'd drop a line.

For those of you in Pootah who witnessed the Fever Blister Takeover on my's getting better. I've been documenting them with pictures, well I was in Utah, I've only taken one since I got home. I'll take another today, if I remember. I'm sorry you had to see me in such a horrific state, but I love you all for not caring or laughing in my face.

OK I've uploaded two pics for your viewing pleasure. Note this may cause you to vomit in your mouth, just a little.

Day 1
Of the takeover!

Day 2

Right in time for the party in SLC.

Please stop looking at my mustache

And just to give you a little taste of what's to come, the craziness didn't end when we got home. After we landed and took the bus to the Economy parking, we found our car and it looked like this:

OH YEAH...And it was like 108 degrees!

Thanks to The Best Fucking Husband in the WORLD, the tire was changed and we were on our way home (and Urgent Care) in no time.

OK back to my couch bed...this took way too much energy and it's fucking 88 degrees in this house (that story to come too), Must Nebulize and take a nap or watch a movie.

ps Jory's blogging again (sorta)...go comment so he feels the love.
