A Quick Hello

It's been a long time since I've had to play nursemaid but I think my hard work is finally paying off. I can actually see some improvement in George today, although he is still coughing quite a bit. The doctor said his improvement would be very gradual and he has finally kicked the fever, but he is still getting head and body aches and can hardly speak more than a few words before another coughing fit begins. Of course I have had to do all the talking and he only fell asleep on me a couple of times. I am going to blame that on the fever and meds kicking in rather than him being bored. :-) He did finally eat a real meal today for the first time since Saturday so there is hope. I'm not sure if he will be well enough to go to work on Monday but we will see. Viral pneumonia is not a whole lot of fun. :-(

After work today I went shopping for a birthday present for George's grandson. Alex will be 2 on the 28th and that is also the day of his party. I got him some Thomas the Tank Engine stuff and a couple of outfits for the summer. He's such a cutie pie, I can't wait to see the excitement on his face.

Tomorrow would normally be my "off' Friday but I have to go in for at least half a day. Work has been crazy lately. We've had parts shortages and so many little problems that now we are behind schedule. Hopefully we will make our shipment on Tuesday but if not, we should only be 1 day late at the worst. I guess going in tomorrow will be a small price to pay to get this done. I have put in for a weeks vacation for the week of July 4th, and I want to make sure I can still have it off.

I don't have too much to post, just been busy with work, domestic duties and force feeding fluids and medication. Hopefully I will have a more interesting post next time.

Nurse Lainie...it has a ring to it. :) Glad to hear George is feeling better. Sure sounds like he was one sick guy. Hope he continues on the mend.

Buying gifts for little ones is a lot of fun. Hope Alex has a nice birthday.

Have a good day at work tomorrow and enjoy your weekend. *hugs*

He's still got a long way to go. But no worries, I am feeling fine and haven't picked up whatever he had. I came home this morning to clean my own house and do my own laundry. Well the laundry is being done...not so sure how much cleaning I will tackle. It's kinda nice outside, I'm thinking I need to be sitting in the sun. :-)
