Illness and updates (and other lovely stuff)

I’ve been sick, which is why you haven’t seen any posts from me in a week. What? You haven’t even missed me? Gee well that’s nice that is!

I have had a viral flu – a particularly nasty strain that hit me like a ton of bricks. One minute I was fine, then I realized my throat felt a bit funny, and within an hour, I was bedridden with a hacking cough. I have never seen anything like it. I got it the day after my birthday and I am still feeling the full effects. I do feel a little more human today though.

My poor hubby has now got it – and I hate seeing him sick. He was on nightshift last night and he got home at 6:30am this morning. He has been trying to sleep and all I can hear from the other room is him coughing, so I don’t think he is really getting very much sleep.

Now for more important stuff:

Update: Trackback The lady with the triplets that had to have a hysterectomy – she is doing well. The surgery went well and they are pretty sure they have it all and that it never got a chance to spread. They found less cancer than what they originally thought there would be, which is a good thing. They are so confident that they don’t recommend further treatments such as Chemo. So she is home now and resting comfortably and her boys are very clingy at the moment. They are looking after their Mum.

Update and New Beginnings: Trackback Remember my friend (my spiritual sister) that got told recently that she hasn’t been releasing eggs? They told her that her eggs were no good. She was absolutely devastated. I felt her pain and felt so useless – there was nothing I could do to make her feel better. She has been trying since to find some way to move on, and researching all she can to work out how to defeat this sentence.

Well, somehow she found it. This week she discovered that she is pregnant!!! So there! Take that you doctors that told her she had NO EGGS! – How did she get pregnant if there were NO EGGS! You got to wonder sometimes at these specialists and what they say. He was so adamant too.

Hunny – my sis – hopefully one day you will read this and know how proud I am of you. You looked this in the face, and said “You will not defeat me” and you did it. You beat the doctors and you did it. Didn’t I tell you that you would be walking into their office someday with your baby in your arms? When you do, I want to be with you. I want to see their face!

Update: me! Auntie Flood arrived again just like I knew she would. I have been checking out a clinic here in Melbourne that helps people with PCOS, weight management and trying to conceive. It looks pretty good and I have already had some discussions with the lady running the clinic, who has PCOS as well, and is currently baking her second baby. I hope she can help me.

Did you get a computer virus from tongue-pashing the keyboard?

OK, that was uncalled for, but the best joke I could think of.
Hope you're feeling better. Sorry AF found you, that's such a bitch. I have my fingers crossed (and my vertebra) that the PCOS clinic can help you out a bit. How good is it that it's run by a woman with PCOS, rather than someone who just studies it? She is proof of the pudding from the sounds of it.

How great is it that your good friend is pregnant, even though the doctors thought they were right? I love hearing stories like that. I am really, really going to love it when I hear that you're pregnant as well. :-)

Thanks, for everything, for making me feel so special and most of all for just being you...
