You Know What Detours Are

Griffin's been home the last two days, too sick to go to school.

I'm damn tired of saying, "Go. Lay. Down. Now."

One-third of our table is taken over by the Birthday Jungle.


At least it's a pretty jungle.

I'm rather tired of doctors. I went to two yesterday.

No worries -- the mastoiditis really isn't mastoiditis at all. Turns out to be a pulled muscle in my neck and it's radiating to my scalp.

Would have been nice to know that two weeks ago though.

But, hey, silver lining -- at least I'm not going to die from a brain infection anytime soon.

ah...well... huh. I don't really know what to say about all that! Glad you're better diagnosed? Yay?
Enjoy the weekend!

Sorry the kiddo is sick. And thank goodness you really don't have the mastoiditis but how in the hell did you pull your neck muscle? Hopefully now that you know what the real deal is, you be on the road to recovery in no time. Oh - love the birthday jungle too!

That's quite a misdiagnosis. I'm glad you don't really have mastoiditis. But geez, doctors can be really tiresome.

Poppy & Mei said...

Bah! What a doofus. (The doctor, not you.)
Hope you all feel better soon.
...Come on, feel better...Xxx

Glad to hear it's just a pulled muscle but holy cow! Could they have not figured that out two weeks ago? Hope your kiddo is feeling better soon.

miss chris said...

Wow. Glad it's not the other, but... geez! I hope your strained head and neck feel better soon. How the heck do you treat that??? Please don't tell me, with Advil. OOh...Maybe...prednisone???

LauraJ said...

well that's a relief!
and those plants are pretty...don't forget to water them!!

PamKittyMorning said...

That doesn't sound nearly as dramatic as the last diagnos!

She sure is strange! said...

Ouch, I have experienced this before and it HURTS where the muscles attach to the head! Glad you don't have bugs in your brain though, that is scary to think about. Does a heated rice bag thing help? Or have you tried it yet?

ps, that b-day jungle is wonderfully refreshing!

Glad you are not dying. Really. Happy birthday! Love your hat. Sorry about the sick kids - blech. I have been o the internet but it's like heroin - hard to kick. LOL.

futuregirl said...

What a bummer ... or that's good ... or something. I guess they need a rapid test for mastoiditis, eh?

PLO said...

Glad to hear you are not dying. Everyone is sick, I am sick, all my bloggie friends are sick, everyone's kids are sick...including mine...does it ever end? Hope you are all feeling better!!!

SHUT UP! Seriously?? That's F'D up.

Once, when I was sixteen, a doctor told me I had a bad STD. Then, a month later he was like "Nope, just kidding. Looks like it was vaginitis, all along." And I was all "THANKS. FOR RUINING MY LIFE."

Doctors are morons. Always get a third opinion!

(glad you are not going to die of a brain infection.)

Crockpot Lady said...

I'm glad that you aren't going to die from a brain infection any time soon.

that is *quite* the birthday jungle! Do you ask for plants? Do you put them outside?
you can keep them alive?

oilclothjunkie said...

Heidijayhawk said...

LLA said...

You've been taking nasty-side-effect medication - for the treatment of something you DON'T EVEN HAVE????


gah.

Chara Michele said...

Well that is good news sorta... Although that stinks because weren't you having to take meds for that? Hope you feel totally better soon! (And your kids too!)

Cathy said...

Thank goodness it was not mastoiditis! That would have really sucked. Happy belated birthday... I'm jealous of the forest!!!
