On the upswing?

I finally went to the Dr. on Saturday. Yes, I waited 7 days...and I wished I had only waited 6 days.  Around 5:00 on day six {Friday} I realized I wasn't getting better. 
This is what I do.

 By the time I saw the Dr. I had a sinus infection and a middle ear infection. 

Or maybe he said I have an inner ear infection?
Or was it a little ear infection?

What? Did you just say something to me? I can't hear a darn thing.....

Ozzie asked why he hasn't been featured on the blog recently.
There you go Ozzie-Boy. Now, please don't slobber on my Mac any longer.

In more important news:

My Mom is having shoulder surgery today....good thoughts and healing prayers would be wonderful!

And something to chew on...if you ever fall and hurt yourself badly...try not to do it just prior to a holiday weekend...and most importantly, I pray you don't have to deal with workman's incompetent comp people.
12 days is a long time to sit around in pain {and on pain meds} waiting for a ball to get rolling. 
That has made a broken bone more painful than Mom deserves does yours.  



  1. Sending good thoughts, Prayers and positive energy to all of you.
    Now you owe me!
    Your Friend, m.

  2. Sending you and yours good thoughts and prayers!

  3. Check out that Ozzie Boy's face! So I slobber, Mom. You got a problem with that?

    Sending good thoughts to you and your mama too! Pain is not your friend!

  4. Good Morning, Suz and Ozzie,
    Oh, my...I hope you are feeling better soon. I would do the same thing...wait to see if it runs it's course before I go to the doctor.

    Best wishes to your mom today. I hope the surgery goes well and that she has a speedy recovery.

    Have a marvelous Monday!

  5. Major positives thoughts and prayers heading for your mom and for you for that matter! Get you all healthy and on a road to recovery!

  6. YOUR POOR MOM and oh gosh, you! Nooo, feel better both of you!

  7. Ouch! Poor Mama. I'll definitely be sending prayers and good vibes her way today.

  8. Sending good thoughts from CA...for your mom and of course for your ear :)

  9. You mom had to sit around with a broken bone for 12 days??? WHAT? Geez, our health care system is great. Hope you are both on the mend quickly!!!

  10. Your poor Momma! I will definitely keep her in my special prayers. It sounds like a horrible time for her!

    Glad you finally went to the doctor. Gosh, no wonder you've been feeling lousy!

    Hope you're on the mend as you're reading these comments.

  11. I hope you are feeling better, and we will keep your mother (and you) in our prayers. Workman's Comp must be the same all over. My brother is fighting with them in Indiana.

  12. Aww, your poor Mom, hope she get better soon! Prayers are coming her way and your way. Get better soon I hope!

  13. WCB doesn't sound any better in the US than it is in Canada - they are forever stalling and making people suffer. grrrr. I hope you mom is better than ever after her surgery and that all goes well.

    I also hope you are feeling better too - next time don't wait so long to see the Dr. - we want you to hear everything(!) that's going on around you.

  14. Prayers and thoughts for your momma!!
    And hi OZZIE!!

  15. Oh, so sorry to hear about your sweet mom. I would be happy to add her to my prayers.
    Crazy...I was at urgent care myself this weekend for a sinus infection. HATE those things cuz they wipe you out!
    Also very sorry about your little Sasha. The worst part of being a pet owner if you ask me. : (
    And last...those Prom pics of Lindsay were TO DIE FOR!!!! You sure produced two beauties. Proud mamma, I'm sure. : )
    Take care,
    Mary Lou

    My mom has had some problems with her back...makes me so mad that she's having to live with pain.

  17. Positive thoughts and prayers from here for your mom. Glad you finally are on the mend yourself.

  18. Love, hugs, anbd chicken soup for you all!

  19. so ARE you feeling better? i wish you had planned ahead and were done being sick by saturday!!! but i still love you. and did i ever even thank you for bringing soda?! i found it on the lanai this morning. things were a little crazy here. mainly, me :)

    and how is your mama? what have you heard?!


  20. Glad you went to the doctor. If you are like me -- with a high threshold for pain, you don't realize how really sick you are until the meds kick in and you start to feel better. I try to get to the doctor earlier now rather than later because 'at my age', life's a lot shorter and I want to enjoy as much of it as I can - - - even though I don't like to do drugs unless absolutely necessary.
    Praying your mom's recovery is swift and uncomplicated. Bad bummer to have to wait that long for a repair.

  21. OH Suz, I am so sorry to hear that you have been sick. Glad you did go to the doctor. Bless your heart... Hope this week will be better for you...

    Cute picture of Ozzie.

  22. Prayers for both your mom & you! I'm so glad that you got to see your doctor...7 days sick is far and away enough; 12 days in pain is too many! God bless both of you.
    And Ozzie? What a handsome guy. He does deserve to be featured here!

  23. It was good you gave in and went. We don't want you feeling pooey, and I hope all went well with your mom and that healing will be quick for her too.

  24. I hope your mom is on the mend.

    I remember how sick I was spring before last and I let it for like three weeks until I was half-dead. Why do we do that?!

  25. So glad you are looking after you, and just read the update. Yeah for everything in the surgery going well!
