Who knew this mommy was have to go to the doctor sick. I completely couldn't breathe..or catch my breath back this morning. When I was bending over in Jovan's room to put something away..my air just squeezed out, kinda like toothpaste out of the tube. Then I had to lay down to catch my breath. Kinda freaked me out. I was going to make an appointment for next week if I wasn't feeling better by Friday. So I called to make an appointment and was told I had to talk to the triage nurse first, kinda made me a wee bit crabby! I waited for her for sixteen minutes and then I had to answer ALL of her questions which took another fifteen minutes. Okay thirty-one minutes of my life to be told, yep you need to be seen with in twenty four hours. (Don't get me wrong, I get it about the H1N1 flu..Kristina had it and it was scary and not only because of her CF!)

So, my sister said she would watch the kids..which they were so excited about!! My grandmother not so much as she was getting nervous and stressing a bit. Then about an hour before I had to leave, I called my mom crying because I didn't want to go!! She told me I had to..and did I want my dad to drive me. I said no, I didn't want to go. In the end, my dad drove me and waited TWO hours for me!

In the end. My diagnosis...bad bronchitis! So, antiboiotic and inhaler for me. Rest..ya right! :) Tomorrow Dan will drive to Jovan's ortho appointment, so I can rest in the car. It's about an hour twenty minute drive to get there..rush hour traffic..maybe longer. Nice morning nap!

The moral to this post..if you are sick for several weeks go in to the doctor. I waited four weeks..maybe a bit too long? The best thing..God is so good to me! We are blessed to have insurance to have me go, and the rest of my family is fine!! God is good!!
