Christmas Wrap-Up

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was quiet, as usual.

Sorority Girl and Cape Cod Kid were here. They make me smile and laugh. They got tattoos together. We watched movies and episodes of GLEE that were still on the DVR. They introduced me to Tough Love and True Blood (both are kind of yucky).

We got a Wii from Santa. Back in November, a local blogger invited me to a Wii Fit launch party and I received a free Wii Fit! I know!!! I haven't used it yet, because I have the plague.

I worked full-time for a week or two before Christmas. I'm WAY too old for that. I don't think handling thousands of dollars of filthy money is good for someone who tends to have a wonky immune system. I had the hand sanitizer close by, I washed my hands every time I could break away and my mantra was "keep hands away from face....ohmmmm".

The Sunday before Christmas, I started wheezing. That continued until yesterday morning, at 4AM, when I woke up and coughed up half a lung. Thank Baby Jesus In The Manger, I had a $144 rebate check from my car insurance company. I still live in the Land Of The Uninsured.
Diagnosis: Asthma AND Bronchitis. Double the pleasure, Double the fun.

Doctor's fee=$123
Advair Inhaler=free (Love you, Dr Cool)
Ventolin Inhaler=$10 (Thank you, WMART)
Antibiotic=$4 (ditto)
Steroids=$4 (ditto)
Apple juice (I'm on clear liquids) $2.99

You do the math.

Thank you for all your prayers for my aunt. She had a serious setback on the 22nd, but still went home on Christmas Eve. I talked to her the other night and they have made adjustments to her treatment. She sounds good, but I am fully aware that she is in the end stage of her illness.

I'm working on my "Best of 2009" post.

I hope you feel better soon. Even though your sickness is NOT funny, your descrip of it is...double the pleasure. Ha. I always have had a slight distaste for Walmart but being uninsured the past year myself, their cheapo prescrips have saved our butts.

If you have Publix, the antibiotics are FREE. We even get our dog ones for free. Get well soon.

Blech, sick over Christmas! Glad you had a chance to enjoy your grown children - so much better than teens no?!

What a blessing to have enough to cover those expenses! Getting sick costs SO much, doesn't it?
Glad you had a fun time with your kids. Heal soon.

I'm so sorry that you've been sick. Here's hoping you recover soon!

I hope you are doing better - that's tough lung stuff to tackle.

Happy New Year to the Sunshiners! I am up here in cold and rainy Cape Cod. I have to admit that when I went into Stop and Shop and heard the steel drum band (??), I got to thinking that it would be nice to be in Miami!

Glad both your chicks were back in the nest. Here's to a healthy and prosperous New Year!

Oh I hope you are feeling better today!

I spent New Year's Day (my birthday!) at THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN THE WORLD thanks to you, dear Little Miss. You have brought me unbelievable joy with your recommendation of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and I thank you so very much.

I shall now go and post about it and dedicate it to you.

Thank you!

I love it, double the pleasure double the fun.

I hope you're feeling better.

I LOVE YOU said...
