It’s a Sunday, and I’m home and sick of tonsilitis. It’s strange because I can’t really tell how this came about. I just woke up last Wednesday with a very slightly itchy throat but as the day went by, I slowly felt my body becoming weak. At the same time, my left eye became infected because of the contact lenses that I was using. After 2 days of enduring the pain in my throat, hubby and I finally went to the doctor for a check up. Surprisingly, the doctor said that my tonsils are already swelled up so large and pus is already present. Now I understand why the pain in my throat was too much.
So now I’m just lying around at home, resting, watching TV. Artsy Princess came to bed with me last night and said, “Mom, even if you’re here, I miss you since you got sick, it’s like you’re not really here.” I asked her why. She then proceeded to do an imitation of how I am when I’m not sick – a very lively mommy that she’s missing. She made me laugh so much last night. Thank God for kids!
In the meanwhile, I have been asking hubby what we can do for our coming wedding anniversary on March 18. By God’s grace, we are celebrating 15 years of a wonderful and blessed marriage. He hasn’t said much but since I’m really the planner between the two of us, I’m wondering how we can make this more special. Any suggestions?
