Dammmit I weight 148!!! I still have 20lbs to lose!

anyway...

So I'm sick again for the 3rd time in 3 weeks and my brother was just diagnosed with Mono (whom I saw in FL 5 weeks ago). I haven't had a PCP here so I figured now was the time to get one, they said can I come in now? I said sure.

They gave me a dose of antibiotics, i have to get a bunch of bloodwork done at Labcorp tommorrow or Thurs morning ( i have to fast for 10 hours before hand so I'll go in before work) and if I don't feel better in a week , a sheet to go get a chest xray.

They are hitting it like it could develop into pneumonia i guess, said the antibiotics would treat it anyway so nipping it quick if that's chronically where things are going.

the full blood workup should rule out mono too. she's also testing for liver, kidney, blood sugar, cholesterol, HGC (pregnancy) and other stuff just cuz..

So we shall see!

Oh, man. I'm so sorry.
I had mono pretty bad in college. I hope you don't have it. I was so tired I felt like I was dying, and I had huge swollen glands popping out of my neck that were visable. What are your symptoms? Poor thing.

At least it sounds like your doctor is being proactive. I hope you get to feeling better soon. 3 weeks of sickness has to be grading on every last nerve you have.

Thanks everyone. I'm holding up ok, just tired and sick of being sick!
I hadn't been sick a day in the past year and now this month it just keeps hitting me over and over.
Enough already!

I hope these meds kick butt!

I'm glad your doctor is just going to test for everything. I hope you can figure out what you've got so you can just get rid of it! When I had mono in college I had really swollen glands and a bad sore throat. And like Kristen said, it felt like I was dying. It was physically exhausting to pay attention in class.

I've just been chalking the exhaustion up to not getting a full nights sleep in 4 months.
I hope Im just run down and sick and it's nothing serious. I seriously doubt I have mono - but then again my brother had his hands all over the party food that day so who knows. Maddie seems fine, I'm not too worried about her. Better safe than sorry on all accounts.
I like this DR too. Since it's my first visit better to get a big picture than play guessing games.

Yeah for an informative appointment. I like to hear that some doctors actually try. I hope all is well and you recover quickly.

I hope they get it nipped quick! I don't have the strength to be sick for three weeks, I don't know how you've done it!

I want to die No rest for the weary. Still coming into work. Man I was coughing up and blowing some colors I've never seen before.

Maddie is up again two times per night to feed. I wish she'd drop one of those again! I'm thinking of just ignoring her from now on and seeing if she goes back to sleep. Ugh..I don't have the energy for 4am feedings anymore.

You have so much going on! You could try letting Maddie cry it out when she wakes up at 4. Lily wakes up around that time and DH gets up to give her the paci back and re-swaddle her. She goes back to sleep for another few hours after that.
