After I got home from Pop's yesterday, I realized just how bad I felt. And, the later it got...the worse I felt. My throat hurt, my ears hurt, my head hurt...well...EVERYTHING I had hurt!

I was up all night...and went to the 'doc in a box' as soon as they opened this morning. I have strep throat, I have an ear infection, and am about an inch away from pneumonia. They loaded me up with meds...and, now all I want to do is sleep. And, take my pain meds...my ears are killing me. Joy and I have been working at Pop's helping him get things straightened out. So, this leaves it all to Joy. She never complains, though...but, I feel terrible for not being able to help.

When I called her this morning, she told me to be sure to stop and get some chicken noodle soup before I went home...:)

I am so behind on my blog reading and commenting...please know I'll get around to it ASAP. I have also heard from several new friends lately...and some folks I knew that I didn't even know I knew! I appreciate your continuing kind comments, and uplifting prayers as my family tries to cope with missing our most important member.
Stay well!

So sorry to hear that you are down.
You have been through so much and have had contact with so many people how could you not catch a bug. Hope you feel better soon. Don't worry, everyone will be here when you are better. God Bless

You know that your body is telling you to slow down and rest. You've been through so much in the past few weeks - Alex's surgery, Adam's surgeries, and most of all, your mom. You know you need to take care of yourself.

Hope you feel better soon.

What a BUMMER!! I guess after all you've been through the past couple of weeks it's time to just take care of you.

Good grief, I just read Lynne's comment. I guess great minds think alike!

I pray this will be a short-lived illness and you'll feel better soon.

Oh, Tonja, I'm so sorry to hear you're sick. I guess everything just took its toll on you and your body said, "Enough!"

I think it may be a "comfort" thing, but chicken soup does work wonders. I hope you can get some rest and feel better soon.

So sorry, Tonja. Get some good rest and feel better soon!

I am sooooo sorry that you are not well. Your body is emotionally and physically worn out! I have some text ready for some pics when you get to feeling better!

But finally I set this area selling them as a remedy for half price. I in reality love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will definetly buy these. what can you say about it?
