bitter, bitter, bitter

The first picture is a picture of the food that I have been eating for the last couple weeks, and the second picture is a picture of the food my husband gets to eat!. I am SO bitter that my husband and many other people in this world get to eat whatever they want and never gain a pound. I am bitter that I was not blessed with this amazing gene. Michael and most of his sibling (SARAH haha) are so lucky! They can eat anything, ANYTHING and not have to worry about gaining any weight. I love my husband and his family but I must admit I am a little jealous. I hope that my children are blessed with Michaels metabolism and not cursed with mine. I just needed to vent so for the bitterness. On a lighter note, I have lost 11 pounds and my goal is to lose about 50 more. I know that I have a long way to go but I am proud of my progress.

Last night Mike and I headed to the emergency room. For about 2 days my back had been killing me making it really hard to breath. I also had a really sore throat and an ear ache on the right side. Late last night the pain started to get worse and I developed a fever of 103. I was on the fence about going to the hospital because we don't have any health insurance, therefore, it was hard to make a decision on whether or not to go. But as my fever started to rise Mike and I decided it would be a good idea. When we got there they took us back pretty much right away but we waited in the room for quite a while to see a doctor. After the doctor came in and checked me out he decided to start an IV because I was dehydrated. He has swabbed my throat to get it tested for strep and mono. Another nurse came in and put some medicine in my IV for the pain. The doctor came back and said I have an infection in my throat (not sure what it was called) which caused an infection in my lungs which is why my back was hurting so bad because my lungs were inflamed. He but some medicine in my IV for my nausea and for the inflammation, which made me really sleepy and I slept for about an hour. The medicine was amazing and made the pain feel a lot better so the gave me a prescription and sent me home. Today I feel a little better but still have some pain in my back ribs. Im a little upset that we needed to go to the doctor because we don't have insurance, but you do what you have to do. I talked to my mom and she was worried that it might turn into pneumonia or bronchitis so we didn't want to risk it. Hopefully with the medicine I will start to feel better and won't have to worry about this again. Also the doctor told me that I needed to get my tonsils taken out because I have had a sore throat multiple times this year but, I am definatly going to wait until I have insurance for that!

sick little lainharts

Well, it all started about 2 weeks ago when Logan developed faucet nose. Faucet nose is a constant runny nose in which needs to be wiped every 2 minutes( which he absolutely hates!) I took him to the doctor to make sure that he didn't have any other problems and the doctor said he just had a cold and it we had to let it run its course. I was reveled that it was nothing more than a cold, but after faucet nose for a week and a half Logan was not getting any better. He had developed a cough, fever, was ultra clingy along with the runny nose. So I took him back to the doctor, this time we found out that he had an ear infection, a sore throat, a cough, a cold and a diaper rash that turned into a yeast infection. Poor baby I felt so bad for him. The doctor prescribed us some liquid antibiotics, and some cream for the yeast infection and I have already noticed a difference in him since he has been taking the medicine. So gladly he is feeling better, but me on the other hand not so great. I think that I caught what he had. For the past 2 days I have had a sore, red throat, stuffy nose, my ear has been hurting, and a cough. And on top of all that my back hurts worse than it has ever hurt in my life and I have no idea why. It hurts in my back ribs when I breath, it hurts to stand, it hurts to walk, and it hurts the bend over. For most of my adult life I have had lower back pain but this is different. If anyone has any idea what it might be or how I could make it better I am open for ideas. I am so glad that Logan is slowly starting to feel better but who is going to take care of me???? I NEED MY MOMMY!!!!
