Have you ever been just. plain. too. sick. to even go to the Doctor's Office? That's where yesterday found me. I walked as far as the kitchen 3 times, but nearly passed out each time.
I did not have the energy to even pick up the phone to make a Doctor's Appt., much less shower, get dressed, and walk across the street to the Doctor's Office.
Yes. Seriously. I live across the street from my Doctor's Office . . . and I did not have the strength to get myself there. (Jim was working 75 miles away, and Hosanna was at school and play practice all afternoon, while I was home with the 3 young ones.)
Jim did phone the office yesterday, and made an appt. for me for this morning, since Hosanna would be home to get me there. I was so weak this morning, again nearly passing out, that I almost had to have Hosanna go across the street and borrow a wheelchair to get me to my appt. So. Not. Fun.
I made it to my appt. Had to lay down for a few minutes after the exam because I was too dizzy to walk. Made it next door to the lab for blood tests and a strep test. And, actually made it back home (across the street) without needing a wheelchair. Yep. That's my big accomplishment for the day. (smile)
Test results back. No mono. No strep. Yes Viral Infection. I definitely have a serious virus. There are several types that are similar to Mono, but not the exact mono virus. Treatment: Sleep It Off.
HUGE Prayer Request: God's Healing Power so that I may be well enough to attend the funeral on Saturday for my Dad's wife. It is very important that I be there to support my dad.
Thanks for your prayers this week. Much appreciated!
