I've been sick. Again. Well, at this point everything is getting to be 'again' so forgive the whining, but really.

Coulda passed on this experience entirely. No problem. BTDT and oh yeah, again? REALLY?

Haven't been here. Why? Well, I may stay on my feet well - but if I can't even get to them, staying on them is another story entirely.

Too sick to sit at a desk, folks. That sick. That said, I have run the iPod out of power at least three times a day for the last week. Plants vs. Zombies and I are on a first-name basis. I've kept up with three 'playing with friends' apps that usually wait days for me to respond.

And oh, I have slept like it was for the world's record. Something like 19 hours a day.

Upper-respiratory from hell. About 50% today, back at work because the doctor's note said I'm good to go.

Meeerrrr.

We've introduced kid to Hikaru no Go (I had three of the DVDs from back when, eh?) - and kid has taken to it like few other things lately. Enough that I was able to reward him with one more episode for being so good watching the one before it.

He's still being a rascal, but he had this crud first so I'm sympathetic.

Blargh. Pants likely bankrupt - if I'm missing something, lemme know?

And everyone - including me - missed it.

While I am certain I've been having one infectious URI after another - underlying everything has been something else.

Acid-reflux disease. If it had been something as simple as heartburn, I'd have noticed it - but the ENT I saw on Friday says 50% of his practice is what he calls 'silent' GERD.

That's stomach acid passing back up the throat, probably while I'm sleeping. Enough so that it's burned my throat, burned the larynx, and invaded the sinuses and eustachian tubes up into my ears. Hence, crunchy ears, constant cough and the sinus stuff? My sinuses are clear and perfectly healthy. Everything follows this like carts follow horses.

The guy sent a camera on a 12" cable down my nose to the back of my throat. We're sure.

It's twice daily acid-reduction medication (Prilosec, but I'm taking generics) for 3 months and re-evaluate.

I'm the only woman in the last three generations to have retained her gall bladder. I also have a mild case of scoli. I'm not grossly overweight - nowhere near my high water mark - but there's some to take off, so I'm doing it. I'm going to blame the GERD incidences on the constant coughing on the true URI's I've had, increased stress and really bad food options - but I'm grateful this is not having to wait until the end of April for a change in tactics.

My ears are still crunchy, I still have a healthy cough (which means I can't recheck BP until that subsides a bit more) and sore throat - but the fever is gone, and both of the former are much less than they were on, say, Wednesday of last week. I started medication on Friday.

And so we go. It's lovely to be able to breathe again.

Got home last night to a message that I've got a referral to the ear, nose and throat people...in Downey, where Jim works...today, at 1:15 PM.

Okay. Getting better before Easter would be nice. Throw my entire schedule in the air? SURE!

I'll let you know if they find Narnia or something.

That's the way you do it.

I got a referral appointment for next Tuesday. Pity my arm-twister is retiring, but you takes what you can gets.

Don't know what it will result in, but if it's stay home and watch daytime TV - anything is better than this right now.

Sure doesn't sound like it.

My reward for staying hydrated is coughing up seawater. Well, at least THAT'S productive.

Getting better, but oh so incrementally. And at the end of the day, I fall down like a very dead thing indeed.

Seanan's book is here, and damn if I didn't fall asleep trying to read it. Not fair.

I'd like to knit something. I'd like to write something. I'd like to COOK something.

Not. Fair.

And poor Jim is just getting pounded by life right now. Have a good thought for him, the inexperienced one of the two of us, okay? Not his fault.

Left kid at school with a goofy-happy face on. Really happy kid. Very pleased am I, this being a totally mundane day with nothing to really recommend it. And he was PISSED at being woken out of a sound sleep just to get dressed and go to school. Imagine that! By the time we were at school, he woke up and decided this was FUN.

Win.

I still sound disgusting. And very tired. Not well yet. I've told the household that dinner tonight is cold cereal. And I mean it.

Beginning to plan out my two whole weeks of vacation this year - one, the put-off trip to KY so Jim can see his folks, and the balance will be taken in the week between the holidays when school is out.

Mad vacations to Vegas? Not in the stars. Check back later. I'm planning sidetrips - say, go see Dave's House ([livejournal.com profile] popelizbet? Yes, we're going to be around!), maybe even drive too many hours in any direction to see other folks. It's making me tired thinking about it, but that's what optimism is for, right? I'm not going to be sick forever, right?

[livejournal.com profile] seanan_mcguire has a new book out today - yes, you want it. Trust me on this. (Mine should be home waiting for me when I get there. Toby and Fruit Loops. Yup.

Other things I've noticed I missed? The Winter Olympics. Yup. Home sick and didn't see any of it. Was sleeping. Not watching.

Saw plenty of Dirty Jobs, though. And cleared off the TiVo and a good part of my Netflix queue.

Blargh.
