After coughing for hours with a pounding headache (and a sore throat, no appetite, coldness and exhaustion), I went to an urgent care clinic. And then after a mere two and a half hour (yes. 2 1/2 hours) wait, I was diagnosed with RSV. I thought only three year olds got RSV. I was wrong. The doctor told me even 100 year olds can get it. Thanks, doc. Either way, I'm not a fan of this virus.
I still feel awful and can't take anything since Beta is growing contently inside of me. Plus, it's a virus. My instructions were to take a lot of vitamin C and rest as much as possible. Clearly the doctor has never had a toddler to look after, alone, all day. Rest is not much of an option, but we'll do the best we can!
Today is certainly a day when I wished family lived closer. I could say, "Hey. At the risk of getting a bad cold, could you PLEASE come help me." Surely someone would agree... :)
So...I was looking at the weather today to see what I'll be missing for the next few days. As I scrolled down the page, I saw this:
Rome, huh? I could do Rome. Thank you for the good suggestion, Weather Channel. And even though the weather forecast was not as lovely as Edmond, OK , I was okay with at least going to try it out. It's Italy, for goodness sake! Never tempt a sick girl, or me in general, with Italy...cold, foggy weather - or not! I'll always go to Italy. The have truffles there! And incredible food. And a lot of things that I need to see and expeience first hand. See, now I want to go to Italy.
