|08:45 am - Oy! What a week it's been|
Was planning to work Wednesday night in exchange for missing Monday night at work. But Wednesday rolled around and I just couldn't get out the door. No problem, I figured, missing one day of work isn't going to kill me. Plus, I had a dentist appointment Thursday morning, so staying home would make getting to that easier.
Thursday night, however, Ericka developed symptoms of an allergy to one of her meds. Well, since it's a hormone, the doc says that it isn't a true allergy, but is a "sensitivity." Whatever. So she had itchy rashes in a couple of different spots and her blood sugar was all up-and-down. To top it off, she apparently pulled a muscle in one calf while out shopping on Tuesday and so was having trouble getting around and was in a lot of pain.
By Friday, Ericka was feeling better and stopping taking the medication and adding anti-histamines alleviated a lot of her symptoms. Also, resting up and taking anti-inflammatories helped her leg quite a bit. She finally got some good sleep in the afternoon, not waking up for dinner until it was about time for me to start getting ready for work. It seemed a bit silly to go into work for just Friday night, though, and Ericka wasn't 100% (adjusted for Ericka Normal) so I stayed home Friday night, too.
Saturday, Ericka was feeling much better. We watched Shrek 2 which was silly and not much of a kid's movie, given all the little in-jokes. I also found many of the voice actors to be poorly cast. But it was nice to hang out together for a couple of hours.
Tonight is a housewarming party and then it is to see if I can get in a full week's worth of work.

Glad Ericka is feeling better. I love to hear you talk about her. It reminds me of the way C.S. Lewis talked about D, the woman he lived with, in his diary. He would always describe how she was feeling, in every diary entry.

Interesting C.S. Lewis tidbit, thanks!
