Have you seen my immune system, I seem to have misplaced it...

O.k. so I don't mean to be a "Debbie Downer" (a term derived from a Saturday Night Live skit with a girl named Debbie who was always negative. o.k. I just ruined the fun by having a huge explaination following the term.)...
Let's start over, I don't mean to be a "Debbie Downer", but I have been sick this whole winter and I am wondering if you have seen my immune system running around town somewhere, because it sure isn't here....

Here's my sob story....

I started with sinus infections in September and constant tonsillectomy.... the ENT doctor claimed that they needed to do surgery on my sinus cavity.....

Finally, in December the surgery happened. They gave me an antibiotic "just to be careful" and I recovered from my surgery. Right after recovering from my surgery (I now had permission to blow my nose again... Yea!), we went to Phoenix because Morgan had a speaking engagement at the school his sister teaches at. Anyways, I woke up in the middle of the night with SEVERE pain in my abdomen, and after five hours at the ER in Mesa and a CT scan later, they realized I had a stomach and intestine infection. Painful stuff, and it could have been caused by taking antibiotics.... So how do they cure me, they put me on another "hard core" antibiotic.... genius! Then I finish taking the later antibiotic and low and behold, the next day I wake up with another sinus infection type thing, no voice, and a cough to beat the band.

Point being: I am not sure where the point lies, but speaking of lying, I have been doing a lot of lying around as of late, and frankly, I am SICK of it!

I am including a picture of me in jammies, because that is all I seem to wear lately....(thank you Becky for the comfy jammies!)
Tomorrow I am off to Prescott to build myself an immune concoction as per my awesome brother-in-law Jeff. Just think fish oil and zinc and other cool stuff... I am definitely willing to give it a whirl.

I'm so sorry about all this! It really sucks! I definitely think natural "concoctions" are sometimes the way to go...so hopefully that helps! And hey...arent those the same pants Morgan is wearing in the silly pic on your Christmas post....?

no fun at all! and if you can't be a debbie downer on your own stinkin' blog, well, what good is the blog? you vent whenever you need to, that's my theory. and doesn't it suck that there is no replacement mommy that comes and assumes all your responsibilities while you are sick? what a bummer. hopefully your magic elixir does the trick, keep us posted! ha ha ha. (lame joke, sorry)
