Lions, Ballerinas ,and doctors...OH MY!

Very unfair! My daughter, Jackie McCobb, saw a live lion down town yesterday and my husband, Clint Vernoy, was in a pharmacy that was invaded by little ballerinas in tutus. All I saw was a boring doctor's office!!

I have not been feeling well for several weeks. I was finally able to see the doctor yesterday and am now on medications for allergies, sinus infection and asthma. I am trying to get used to the way the asthma inhaler makes me feel ~ all jittery, like my eyes are going to fly right out of my head and I might jump out of my skin!

When it wears off I seem extremely lethargic. People tell me this is normal and to get used to it. The upside is, I CAN breath which is something I am rather fond of doing on a regular basis. The allergies are mostly seasonal and it is Spring here in the Southern Hemisphere.

My teeth have been killing me but I am pretty sure it is related to the sinus infection. Since I have a deadly fear of dentist, I am hoping the pain in my teeth will go away with the infection. I have managed to avoid a dentist for over 5 years and would hate to have to go see one now! The ear ache seems to be related to the same sinus infection.

Anyway, thats why I have not been writing and posting much of anything new.

Once again you are missing the expertize of your husband. Did he not help people in a dental way?

When in Colo. we (Susan & me) knew a young man who used an inhaler everyday. I told him we heard they were addicting. His response, "That's silly, I've used an inhaler everyday for s e v e n y e a r s." The spaces are how his speech slowed down. He stopped but was VERY miserable for weeks.

Just trying to cheer you up

Ugh! I know the feeling. Woke up today with body aches from my medication so I am trying to lay low while the sunshine outside bids me to play. Take care of yourself, eat more protein, your body needs it to heal.

So sorry you are sick. Hope you are better soon. Do you have a good dentist? We do in Asuncion. Dr. Neufeld.

Also the story about your nephew Johnny was a beautiful story of God's miracles today.

Feel better soon!!! I use my inhaler as a last resort because I never got "used" to that "I wanna climb out of my skin feeling." Ugh - miserable...

So sorry you're not feeling well. Hope by now you are on the road to recovery. (I was sick too and that's why I'm behind!) Shall we help you find a dentist??? I know you don't want to, but maybe you should!!! Praying!
