I'm in a real catchy-title rut these days. Sorry. Today sucked. I have been getting headaches ever since I gave myself a concussion. Today's was definitely a migraine. That's A MIGRAINE!!! I wanted to make sure I put that pain emphasis in my writing. I was in tears it hurt so bad - how wimpy is that?!? The neurologist gave me medication, but I read that it can interact with another medication I'm on. Forget trying tylenol or advil. He did suggest 4 aleve, but I just wanted to sleep it away. Finally I was able to fall asleep for about 3 hours and woke up to a smaller "regular" headache that did not go away until about 9:30 this evening. Also, my ear ringing has been in full-force since the migraine hit so sleep is not something I'm contemplating right now. I have music playing to drown out the ringing. Fun.

The ENT that Shelby saw here in Rockford last week decided he did not feel comfortable doing her T & A so now she needs to see an ENT at Children's and see what he/she thinks. The ENT in Rockford asked if she stopped breathing in the night and then made the sound that we would hear when she caught her breath again. We have heard her do it before, but I've already heard her (she's in her bedroom and I'm in the living room with music playing) do it 3 times tonight. I think she has some sleep apnea going on there. Tomorrow I should be able to schedule the appointment and maybe we'll get lucky and be able to do it when we're there on the 10th.

Shelby saw the Pediatrician Monday after school for these boils that keep coming and going on her nose. They've been re-occuring for a year now. He said its bacterial and put her on an oral antibiotic, a topical antibiotic cream and took a culture of it. Also, she is getting several canker sores and some really dry skin around her mouth. Her face is having a rough time :-o
