Roses and Thorns
Rose: I got to Skype my brother for a whole hour tonight.
Thorn: I can’t shake this asthma flare, sinus pressure, and cough. I have been taking 4 nebulizer treatments a day, sleeping propped up, and walking around stinking like Vick’s Vapor Rub and cough drops. I’m desperately trying to avoid another doctor’s appointment and a steroid pack.
Rose: My kids were as good as gold today which means I did not have to stress my voice a ton.
Thorn: I woke up to some crazy left knee pain. I have no clue what I did to it, but it must have happened in the night, because when I went to bed my knee was 100% fine. Since I have not had knee issues before, I am not sure if this is just a freak thing or EDS related. Hoping the pain goes away just as fast as it appeared. I’m icing as we speak. So. weird.
Rose: I’m loving the new Chris Trapper album. It’s been playing on repeat all day.
Rose: Last year at this time I wore a neck collar whenever I had to hold my head up. I have not worn my collar in months. Knock on wood.
Thorn: I have to miss out on a family trip to Philly this weekend to see my sisters, brother-in-law, and CeCe Baby (in her cow costume).
Rose: I will still get to Skype them and see CeCe in all of her “moocow” glory. Thank God for Skype.
Thorn: A kindergartener bit Brad yesterday. He still has teeth marks.
Rose: I love working with my teaching partner, Zondra.
Thorn: I’m worried about making it through parent-teacher conferences okay (health-wise).
Rose: I have learned that the anticipation is always the worst.
Thorn: There’s not a new Modern Family tonight.
Rose: MSU beat Wisconsin last Saturday in an amazing finish.
Thorn: I accidentally found myself caught driving in the midst of the MSU Homecoming parade when I was coming home from my doctor’s appointment on Friday.
Rose: I did not hit any of the horses, cheerleaders, buses, or spectators that were surrounding my car. I made it out alive (with just a little horse poop on my car).
