Tuesday the 12th---

Thanks for all the spirit-boosting comments from yesterday's "pity-party" everybody !

I loved logging on to blog today and seeing your replies !

I got home last night and Marky was still "floppy" and laying in bed. He has also started coughing ! Like he's getting a darn cold or somethingorother !

At eleven o'clock last night, the poor guy was still coughing his head off and then holding his stomach in pain. So we decided to give him a tiny bit of the magic codeine cough syrup that all of us Mom's are grateful for.

Of course, the codeine stuff relaxes the bowel, too, along with the cough...so that's a problem with a guy who is already teetering on crapstipation issues !

But he DID sleep after that. Today he is coughing again and still complaining of the belly pain.

Last night he told me I needed to take him back to the hospital cause it hurt so bad....... I just stood there, concealing my panic at the thought, and said....."just put the heating pad back on your belly and watch Ironman, for cryin outloud !" (Ironman is the DVD of the month at our house by the way)

So James is at home with the warrior again today.

Love to you guys, Lynette
