Weight on My Chest
At around 4:00 yesterday afternoon I started getting worried because I was beginning to have breathing problems again and felt that weird familiar weight on my chest. I really didn’t want to make a trip to the hospital and was hoping it would go away. Lucky for me, Andrea and Steve came over shortly thereafter with my kids from the day-care. Boy was I relieved to see both of them! I took some children’s Benadryl because that was all I had at home. It helped a bit. Steve went out and picked up some adult Benadryl for me at Shoppers Drug Mart. We had dinner (Thanks Andrea!) and Bobo finally arrived home.
I took the adult Benadryl an hour before I went to bed when I thought the Children’s Benadryl wore off. It made a huge difference and I was able to sleep soundly last night. I’m feeling pretty good today. Frack didn’t make it to day-care this morning. He was complaining his stomach hurt and he was still grumpy from getting up early yesterday morning. So I kept him at home this morning. He has been quietly pitter-pattering around the house drawing on paper. Right now he is sitting under the computer table with me writing notes.
I phoned ETF to find out more about our Long Term Disability Plan.
I got the distinct impression that unless I’m dead, I will be returning to work on April 5th.
