Still sick....is it scurvy?

Well, after eleven magical days of illness you'll be happy to know that I actually went to the doctor today! When I woke up this morning and felt like I had been run over by a mack truck and it was still painful to swallow I knew it was time for some medical intervention so I trucked myself in and for once was not told that it was a cold that had to run its' course. I swear if he would have told me that I would have just freaked out!! We're talking a mega watt freak out complete with me throwing old back issues of Highlights magazines all over the waiting room.

But luckily such a scene was prevented when he told me the diagnosis was bronchitis and possible bacteria that could morph into strep even though the rapid strep test came back negative.

So I'm on a Z pack and I promise you I can feel it taking effect. I know that sounds like I fell into some placebo type state. Like if the Z pack was really an S pack for "Sugar" I would still take it and magically feel better! But when it is so powerful that it only takes five days you know that stuff has to kick in with a vengence and begin the healing process.

So while I continue on my way to rapid recover I will leave you with a few pleasant thoughts that make me smile....

My wonderful Gerard sending his love my way from way out there on the road with his band *snicker*



And my cute dad who is going in for his final surgical procedure tomorrow after one month of radiation for prostate cancer.



Then we can't forget the incredible G getting to model the insanely wonderful
Pouty Princess OutfitThese pictures make me smile everytime I look at them and if you don't go and snap that outfit up you are crazy! The red underskirt is a seperate piece so that you can just wear the dress alone. G said she was the girl on "Dancing With the Stars" and all she needed was to get her little crush Charlie from preschool to come over and the two of them could dance the tango together!




And last but not least Olivia and Alex and the belly laughs they give me everytime they come for a photo shoot. "Harmony Olivia.....Harmony" (said in a very zen like voice)






When I'm feeling more perky I will be giving my book review for "My Sisters Keeper"!!

My Dad went through the same thing 3 years ago and I am happy to say he is cancer free today. Your Dad looks the picture of health and quite dashing.
Get better Miss Poulet!
