Feeling a Little Better

Last night I had a massage at Mellow Me Out. It worked! Everytime I get stressed or anxious I hold my tension in my neck and shoulders. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm stressed until I start to feel sore. Anyway a friend met me over there and the masseuse did a great job focusing on my problem spots. I felt much more relaxed when I got home.

But it was short-lived because even though Drew had motrin two hours earlier, his fever was still 101.1 at 9:30 last night. He was coughing a lot and even threw up a few times from so much coughing. We did breathing treatments every four hours. Around six am he sounded so bad I thought if we can make it two more hours I will call the dr and take him in right away. But after he woke up he looked a little better. Not quite so much coughing, no fever breaking through and he wanted to play and eat and drink. Unfortunately the fever came back (101 at 11:30) and we were supposed to bring him in for bloodwork. I got him a reprieve though, and we have permission to watch him until tomorrow. If he still has a fever tomorrow we will have to bring him in.

So he's feeling a little better, which makes me feel a little better. I even got the Christmas decorations down and the kitchen cleaned up today. I finally got the energy to call the cardiologist about rescheduling the stupid cath and he made me feel better too. He is such a nice man. Anway, for the first time since Wednesday I feel like we may be able to avoid the hospital this time. So keep your fingers crossed!

Hang in there Andrea! All I can say is I'm so, so sorry. I hate the roller coaster ride as much as you do! I hope Drew starts feeling better soon.

Andrea, I hope you were blessed by the hands of Kirstin at Mello Me Out, cause that's who I had today. I'd say it was a "drool worthy" massage!!! Keep hangin' in there.
