Being sick sucks
So I have been trying to get over being sick for no joke 6 weeks now. It started off as a really annoying cold that quickly turned into an even more annoying cough that just wouldn't go away. This has been like the worst most horribly irritating cough ever. It got so bad that 2 weeks ago I bruised my ribs from coughing so much, and Kent had to start wrapping my ribs. We don't have insurance and I was sure if I did go to the doctor they would just tell me it was a virus so I wanted to "tough it out" (plus I hate medicine). Well, a week and a half ago while walking home from picking up my niece from school I coughed so hard that I felt a pop in my rib cage. The pain that followed was so excruciating that I could barely walk the last few feet across my yard into my house. Once inside I luckily found my phone just inside my house and called my mom for help. She luckily didn't have school and was able to immidiatly come over. The kids I babysit just kept asking me if I was ok because all I could do was stand as straight as I could and barely move a muscle. My mom stayed with the kids and my dad took me to the UMC insta care. 3 hours and 4 prescriptions later (yuk!!) I got home. After two breathing treatments and some steroids I was feeling a lot better. It could have been worse the doctor was worried I had a collapsed lung and insisted on an x-ray. Everything was fine I have bronchitis which irritated my asthma that hasn't bothered me since I was a kid and I strained some ligaments in my ribs. Unfortunatly the medicines don't work fast and I am still fighting it, but it is getting a lot better. My ribs really are the most irritating now that my cough is a lot more under control. I keep reirritating them. I am excited to be finally almost over this. Yea!!!
My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We have two beautiful daughters Aurora,6, and Brianna 3. We recently moved back to my home town of Las Vegas, Nevada. It is strange to be back after being gone for 11 yrs. It is nice being close to my family again, but we do miss Utah.
Kent is a 6 grade life science teacher for O'Callaghan Middle school here in Vegas. He really enjoys teaching the six graders. He is also the assistant coach for the school girl's basketball team, and is busy still going to school for himself. The girls favorite time with their daddy is wrestle time which happens on friday nights. Soon as he gets home for school Bri asks if it is wrestle time yet. They love their Daddy!
A little about me, well, let's see. I enjoy reading, crafts, watching good movies, helping ladies feel good about themselves, and spending time with my family and friends. I am first and foremost a mom and I love being a mom. I love being able to stay at home with my girls. I have just started a new adventure as a preschool teacher which I run out of my house, and has been a lot fun.
This is our fiesty 7 year old, Aurora. She enjoys doing crafts, watching T.V. , and playing with her sister. She is in first grade and attends Bracken Magnet Empowerment school. She loves math and science and we really encourage her in her abilities.
This is our 4 year old Brianna. She loves playing with her big sister, playing with her dolly, and running around outside. She goes to preschool with mommy, and loves to go to the park and library during the day. She is very whimsical, and we often catch her making up her own songs and dancing to them. She loves everybody she meets!
