Saturday, December 20, 2008wikipedia has it right when they explain it as rice krispies under the skin. It also explains why when I blow my nose my neck puffs up like a bull frog. It's supposed to close on it's own, so I just have to do all I can to keep the hole closed (no coughing, no heavy lifting). All of this to say that I'm still not feeling well and now I've been advised not to fly on an airplane, lest I get a collapsed lung because of the low pressure. Freaking Fantastic. There go our fun Colorado Christmas plans with our families. There goes the spa day with my mom and 2 sisters where we were going to get massages and pedicures. There goes the two nights in a bed and breakfast for Huz and I so we could celebrate our belated 14th wedding anniversary while Grandmo watches Claire. There goes Christmas as I know it and love it.
We considered driving, but it's a 17 hour drive (if you don't stop), but we have a 14 month old who likely would not take too lightly to being strapped in a car seat for 17-20 hours. And, on top of that, Claire has been throwing up for 2 days now. We don't know why. She's acting normally and has no fever, but she keeps throwing up and we keep having to bathe her and wash all of her bedding. I just hope she doesn't choke on her vomit as she's sleeping.
I am so depressed. I have to ask why this is all happening to me and what I did to deserve this. I simply don't know. |
