Sorry folks, I'm still out of commission here and doing all I can to take it one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. Per my doctor's instruction, I had to stay home Monday & Tuesday from work to recover from this horrible virus I've got. He even gave me a note for my bosses', which was weird, but probably necessary, since I don't exactly "appear" sick, I'm just in a ton of pain. And staying home sick always seems so appealing when your healthy at work, but then when your actually really sick, its really not that much fun. Don't get me wrong, it was absolutely gorgeous outside and I got to sit on the porch in the sunshine with my book while Jason sanded the desk, but still I've been so drugged most of the time, I didn't get to really enjoy the full two days off. One weird side effect about these steroids I'm on, they make my feet itch at night, so in order to keep me from waking up and rubbing my feet on the carpet, I've been sleeping with a hairbrush between my feet, so I can scratch when I need to and fall right back asleep. I know I'm weird, but it works.

Yesterday I had to come back to work, so I don't use up all the rest of my sick/vacation time - and it was hell all day. Both my attorneys had let a lot of work pile up for me to do and I was rushing around like mad trying to keep up - it took a huge toll on my body and I was in horrible pain all day long. So after talking with my doctor again today, he's starting me on a second round of steroids to try & fight off this virus. It will be so nice to actually have my full strength back and be able to clean my house once again and feel not so groggy from the 5 different meds I'm on. But until then, not much else new to report here.

Just please keep me in your prayers, I so badly want to be over this and I really don't want to undergo any further tests. Plus, I really need to hear the Lord in where I need to draw the lines between what is best for my health and being able to say no when somethings too much for me to handle.

Hope your all well - oh and congrats to Vanessa & Josh Curtis on the birth of their beautiful baby girl Ada Victoria Curtis! She was born last Friday night at 8:03pm, 8 lbs and 3 oz!!

Love and hug

A hair brush between your feet... you're right, that is weird. But a little weirdness is a small price to pay for relief and ability to sleep. I sure hope you're feeling better soon.
