    Felt wonky yesterday. Was glad they found someone to cover my shift at the clinic. Slept 3 hours late afternoon, then up for some chicken soup. Slept 9 hours last night. Feel better today - still tired. Teach for 8 hours today, but tomorrow I can sleep in, then i fly home Monday.

    Dad's spot on his heart was a failed graph from his quad by-pass. He has a cardiac cath scheduled Tuesday. To "see" what's going on. Mom is still trying to get her medications titrated for the A-fib, so is feeling tired. DH has been checking on them while I'm out of town.

      Hey, I am all for help around the house! With a schedule like yours, you should not be mowing the lawn and cleaning windows in your spare time. I have a friend who has a massage therapist, a local person, she swears by her. I've always just let it go over my head as I thought I couldn't afford it, but I will get her name. I am pretty sure she has packages or coupons or something to save $$$$ for regulars - I'm sure I have heard my friend mention that.

        Finished class tonight, totally exhausted. Weird occipital lymph node, flu-like symptoms and headache. Class full of NPs say they are pretty sure I've got west Nile. 4 deaths around my house, good thing I'm healthy!

          Slept 14 hours, got up and ate bacon, eggs, strawberries, and pineapple with coffee. Still have body aches, low fever, and headache. My students are taking turns texting me to check on me. They don't like that I'm in a hotel by myself with west Nile. Only 20% get sx and only 1% get the encephalopathy, but even so they are nurses and they worry. Home tomorrow. Fix tooth Tuesday before going to clinic. Dad has cardiac cath Tuesday also. Wednsday paper due. Thursday clinic. Sunday paper due. Here goes the gerbil on a wheel feeling again!

          Forgot to mention son #3 was a passenger in a car that was hit head on by another car going 50 mph. He's okay, but really I'm ready for some good news!!

            (((((Hugs))))))

            I wish I had some good news to tell you! West Nile!!!!! I'm always making jokes about getting West Nile because I have about a thousand mosquito bites. I'm going to stop joking about that now.

            Hey, good on you for educating the students about paleo! Changing the world a little at a time -

                  Thanks Goldie. Still pooped. Travel sucks! Weight back up, I get it down while I'm home and then it goes up when I'm not. I can't control ingredients when I'm counting on others to cook. This sucks.

                    What a day! Dentist this morning - cracked the tooth. Good news no root canal, bad news need a crown. Going back in the morning for the temporary. Dad's cardiac cath went okay, but they tried a balloon angioplasty of the failed graft, so kept him over night. Cardiac doc took one look at mom and sent her to ED - just got home from getting her admitted hypertension, pulmonary edema, A-fib. He's on 4 and she's on 3! He comes home tomorrow, she stays 2-3 days. Had son pick up Ginger, their dog so she's with us for now. DH took off work early to take me to the hospital since I'm still pooped from WN. Guess if you are going to get sick the hospital is the right place!

                      Slept until had to get up, called dentist and rescheduled as I'm exhausted. Thinking of asking for an incomplete in one of my classes.

                          I'm taking the incomplete in one class, which gives me until December to complete the two papers left. I talked to the finance office and they worked out a payment plan for my fall tuition which is due Monday. I had been paying in full from my extra clinic job, but I've not been able to work due to WN. Dad is home and doing well. Mom is still in the hospital (trying to get the right combo of meds before they send her home) but with dad up and driving he's in charge of her now. This means I get to concentrate on getting better. I've got all my grades in for the 4 classes I'm teaching. Got the car insurance, which we pay annually redone to a new company for the same coverage at a better rate, and just locked in at 3.875% to refinance the house. Fingers crossed - good days ahead.

                            Glad to hear you have some resolution - even in your approach to these problems you show what a strong person you are. A lot of people would just fold up and let things fall apart instead of taking control. Good days ahead for certain!

                              Thanks Siobhan. At least I feel like I'm moving forward. I'm being very strict with my eating starting today. I want to hit the magic 140s like you have.

                                Mom was discharged today. Staying very PB today again. Didn't need to nap this afternoon. Not as pooped, so must be healing.
