Some 'Stuff'

It's 5.30am. I've been awake since 2. After an hour I gave up, got up and made a (strong) coffee. Here's to another day that starts in the middle of the night. *sigh*

The saga continues with rash-girl. After not being able to get a doc appointment asap, I took her to the local ER the other day. (This is no small thing we're talking about, she's covered from head to toe now).

So we're called in, doc asks what the prob is, she says 'mum thinks I have measles'. She's checked out, asked symptoms, etc and they tell us it's not measles because she's not sick enough. (I think bullshit it's not, you just wait buster) lol.

Guess what? She's now been throwing up for two days straight, the sore throat is worse, the rash is joining up making her look like she has a bad case of sunburn, she's sniffly and snuffly and .... need I go on?

Not measles my ass!

The best thing is Grits. No kidding, they stick to your insides like glue and they fortify you. Plain, no butter, no sugar.

Hope she's better.
