Which one of us will go first?

I've been struggling with allergies.
Or am I getting sick? 
I've had this same conversation every day with myself for almost 2 weeks.
Many nights I took a 24 allergy pill before bed but didn't notice any improvement.
One day I realized I'd forgotten to take the allergy pill at night, and decided to take in the morning.
Big mistake.
HUGE.
I was falling asleep at noon. Which was unfortunate since I was driving at the time.
Then I was remembering to take the pill at night.
Good for you SuzyQ.
Except, I was still getting crazily tired during the day.
No.more.allergy.pills.
I'll just suffer from the sinus/throat/nose issues.
Sleep driving is frowned upon.

I think the Coach was jelly of my struggles and he decided to get a phantom cramp in the lower left side of his belly.
He lived with it for over 24 hours. Then he decided to drive himself to the hospital for a CT scan.
Hey, I offered to take him.
They quickly ruled out a blockage of his intestines and decided it must be diverticulitis.
I ended up having to catch a ride to the hospital and pick him up since they gave him some pain meds as well as IV antibiotics.
See, I did save the day.
He, of course, was up early the next morning and headed off to work...he's a worker bee.
He's currently on antibiotics and has pain meds if he needs them although it seems the (fingers crossed) worst pain has passed.
He IS on a liquid diet for a few days though. Lord, that doesn't even sound fun.
I've had to eat all my food in the closet.
Kidding.
I don't allow food in the closet.

Hoping that he's feeling dandy like candy for Easter Sunday.

Well, that's all my woes for this week. And YES, I feel lucky that this is the only issue we're having at all.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Easter weekend!
XOXO

I'm glad you didn't get a ticket for sleep driving from a certain officer. I hope both you and Coach are feeling top-notch for Easter!

I hope you both are feeling better soon. I have allergies and arthritis...both kick up in the spring. I have found a good med (allergy nose spray) that works wonders on the drip drip itch itch sneeze sneeze, but need something that works on the joint pain. Or I need to move to Arizona :)

Claritin does not make you sleepy and is pretty effective. Hope both of you are better soon.
