Feeling Crappy in Cleveland

After our flight being delayed for two hours we made it to Cleveland.  Tyler did very well coping with the delay and loved the flight.  Plus for our inconvenience the airline gave the whole plane Direct TV so Sponge Bob kept Tyler very happy and calm, even when the pilot said we would have a bumpy landing.

I thought I was getting better with this virus but this morning I felt worse than ever!  I decided that I would stay home and everyone went to the Museum of Natural History.  I slept the whole time they were away but feel no better!  Tyler was telling me all the things that I missed and I was holding back my tears.  I am feeling really angry at my Lupus because this is why I cannot shake the virus, or, perhaps it is a Lupus flare. 

Of course, the whole purpose of us being here is so that Tyler and his grandparents can enjoy each other and that mission has definitely been accomplished!  It makes me feel so good when I hear Tyler saying “Grandma” and “Grandpa”.  And my in-laws are so understanding of my illness.  I have laid around, unshowered in my pajamas, mostly in bed all day.  I am really thankful for them.

Tomorrow we are going to the zoo, but if I don’t feel well I will skip it because the next day we fly home and I will have no choice but to act like a well person, no matter how I am feeling.  I feel sad but at least everyone is having a good time.

Thanks to everyone who has been commenting.  I am on my father-in-laws’ laptop and I don’t want to spend too much time on it, but I’ll get back to you all when I get home.  And I will post pictures!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
