…my head is spinning. Really.
I’ve had this thing going on for a couple days and don’t like it. If I lay down on my right side, the room spins. When I sit up, the room spins. When I stand up, I look like one of those people who have been playing the “spin around the bat” game. Just standing upright and not falling over is my main goal.
Now, apparently washing my hair is also something that brings excitement to my life. Tilting my head back to rinse results in all sorts of swirly floopy fun.
I’m thinking this is related to my neck and my rash. I know…it sounds like a stretch, but it makes sense if you think about what I used to go through when my neck was seriously messed up (and I’ve been having issues lately). I used to get weird “rashes” on my arm right where this one is, my arm(s) would hurt/tingle, I’d have odd headaches, and then I’d start with the dizziness. Let’s see…uh, yeah. All present. Fun times.
This is all really “awesome” because LD is home from school today. His temp was over 100 this morning. After dosing him with Tylenol, he’s been down in the normal range, but the temp won’t stay there. It never does when he gets like this. I finally got him to eat something an hour ago. Soup. Toast. Getting him to drink is an entirely different battle. I don’t get it. I ply him with juice, Gatorade, soda, water, ANYTHING. But he doesn’t want to drink. It’s so much fun to remind him to drink. He gives me this look…parents know what I mean.
The highlights of our morning thus far have included:
- The History Channel’s show about Indiana Jones and the awesomeness of archeology
- The History Channel’s two hour show on the Knights Templar
- Chicken noodle soup
- More Legos
Yep. That’s it. We’re all about the excitement today. Wooo hooo….cough cough…dizzy swirly…okay, gotta go sit down.
