Fighting Through

No Starbucks today. The kid had today off of class because he has to go in tomorrow to take a test. Instead, we had an emergency oil change done (emergency because the light started flashing in my car), grocery shopped, did bio homework, and studied more for the math test. Tomorrow I'm not sure how long I'll have while he takes the test so I decided I'd better write this week's post up tonight.

So, let's see...this is my birthday week and so far, I've been blessed to receive a card from my friend April. It made me laugh because she sent it an entire month early. Plus, it had a giraffe on it and I love animal cards. Ben and I are going to go to the Michigan State Homecoming game on Saturday (my actual birthday) and then it's home to hopefully hangout online with some friends. He bought me some frozen custard from Culver's to eat while I do that. I just have to decide between red raspberry and chocolate covered strawberry. I think the strawberry seems more festive. What do you think?

As for the title of the post, I'm still here and I'm fighting my way through each day. For those that don't know, I've been sick for about four months. At first I thought it was rsv again, but this just keeps going. I did a round of serious antibiotics and a round of steroids. Nothing seems to help. I'm still coughing, have a stuffed up nose, and a plugged ear. On top of that, I'm just plain exhausted all the time. I find myself sleeping more and more. Still, life must go on and I have to go on with it so I'm fighting through the best that I can. 

If I'm honest, I'm more than fighting. I'm battling. I'm supposed to go have a cat scan done on my lungs but the doctor's office and the radiology office can't seem to speak to one another. Honestly, I find myself on the verge of tears at least a few times a day. I'm so frustrated and so, so tired. Like I said though, life must go on and I refuse to just give up. 

So, that's my life this week. I wanted to come and tell you something upbeat and exciting. So I'll tell you that I'm about to turn 47 on Saturday and win or lose at the game, it's going to be a good day. I've made it another time around this planet and that's a good thing.
