Yesterday my little boy was really sick, we took him to the doctor almost right away because we didn’t want to pay extra for a clinic that would be open on Thanksgiving. Normally I give him about a day or two to see if he doesn’t get better. They said they thought he had croup, there wasn’t much to do but let it run it’s course and they gave us a few things to watch out for (if this happens, do this… etc).
I spent the whole night last night holding a sick, crying little boy. I woke up today and he seemed SO much better, he was laughing and running and playing. I tried to post a few deals for y’all and started to cook dinner. Things were going good-I put him down for a nap and my husband and I were tag teaming the rest of dinner. It was still early, I was going to put the rolls in the oven, post more deals, take stuff out of the oven and we were going to eat at 3:30. It seemed like things were working out.
Instead, my little boy woke up gasping for air, coughing, hacking and pretty much was almost blue in the face. It was horrible watching him struggle to breathe, just sickening. We called the doctor and she listened to him over the phone and then sent us a prescription that got filled about 7 minutes before the pharmacy closed. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon attending to a very sick child. Not sure this was how Thanksgiving was supposed to play out (or my birthday either…. every 7 years it falls on Thanksgiving and today is the day!), but that’s life.
The icing on the cake was tonight when he was trying to move his little chair and fell head first into the fireplace.
I’m so sad and sorry that I missed posting so many dang good deals. I try to share the ones I feel are the best or you would be interested in. I am also sad that I missed getting some myself. But most importantly, I am just so grateful that my little boy seems to be doing a LOT better and that my husband has been home to help take care of everything and keep the house from catching on fire when I had to leave the stove and oven unattended to help a little boy. I am also grateful for the chance to be reminded of what is most important in life. Seeing my little boy so very sick made me realize the only thing in life that really matters is the ones you love. Nothing was more important to me today than making sure he was alright.
I hope you don’t think I am complaining. I’m not. It’s kinda an apology/explanation as to why I didn’t have everything posted today that I wanted. I wanted to remind you of all the sales at the Dollar Stores and all the insane deals online and in store but it’s a one man show here and I couldn’t do it all.
I hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving and that you were with friends and family and loved ones all around!!!
Tomorrow is another day and I expect we are through the worse. I already have some deals coming your way so get ready!
All y’alls prayers must have worked. Someone slept through the night, didn’t wake up coughing and struggling to breathe, has a band aid on his forehead and is almost as good as new. I appreciate all the sweet comments!!!
