And the weekend continues

The doc says it's a sinus infection; which I've become very prone to since living in the DFW area. This one was the worst one yet though. The guy I go to is not a huge fan of using antibiotics for everything, so he gave me a natural remedy to try, and then wrote a prescription for an antibiotic if it doesn't help.

Elise is continuing to have major separation anxiety issues, and napping issues on top of that. Today we had another 30 minute scream-fest followed by only 30 minutes of sleep. The poor girl is starting to get dark circles under her eyes... that's not normal, is it?

And she continues to get the rash. I can't find anything in our house that she's been exposed to that she hasn't been around before. I'm totally baffled. Is it possible she's suddenly developed an allergy to our dog? I tried to google it to see if I could find something similar (note: don't EVER do this if you've just eaten or are slightly squeamish), but couldn't find anything. I just know if I make an appointment, it will be gone when we go to the doc.

I just feel done. Like I want to go for a walk and never come back. Yes I know it could be so much worse, but that doesn't help much when you're in the thick of it. I do appreciate all your sweet words of support, though. It's nice to know someone out there is listening to all my moaning and complaining!!!


  1. re: allergy--i've been told that you can go your whole life w/o having an allergic reaction to something (food, pet, etc) and then yeah, out of nowhere, develop the allergy to it. hopefully, though, it will just be something simple that will clear up!!!

  2. We love you Jo and yes, we're here listening and feeling for you. You're not alone. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

  3. I have had days like these when Addison and I have both been miserably sick and dealing with lack of naps/sleep and bg/ketone craziness on top. It sucks but it WILL pass! Hope things are getting better and you are got some answers at the doc...Take Care!!
