Under the Weather...literallly

Hello! Just wanted to post a quick hello...I've been sick and haven't been able to get on the computer. I ended up going to the E.R. last night. I have a really bad ear infection and my glands are all swollen. I've still been running a fever too. They started me on some antibiotics so hopefully I'll be feeling better in a few days. I can't hear out of my right ear at all. It was my bad ear that I always have problems with. I have Meniers and worry about losing the rest of my hearing in this particular ear especially. If you don't hear from me again for a few days you'll know that I'm taking it easy..
We had a terrible electric storm here last night...it knocked out our phone and messed up all the tv's. I saved the computer when I came in from the ER..I unplugged everything. Sarah had driven me to and home from the hospital. The storm followed us home. It lightninged so bad we could hardly see to drive...it rained very hard too. The lightning took a couple of really good hits here directly. The next door neighbor had the top of one of her trees completely knocked off..I'm not exaggerating about it being bad..it was BAD..The phone company was supposed to make it out here today..but didn't. The neighbor lady said she called and they said it would be tomorrow. So I guess it will be a while yet...
The school corporation has their meeting tomorrow evening. They didn't have it tonight due to the holiday...I hope they call tomorrow evening with good news!
Keep us in your prayers! I'll check in on everyone when I get to feeling better :)
Love and Hugs!! Jerelene

Hello my friend...I am glad you went to the ER; I was hoping when I read your first post about your not feeling well that you would see a doctor. I am praying for you tonight, my friend. Please, rest and know that you are loved.

Oh Jerelene, I was so sorry to read you are not feeling well, don't worry about anything right now, you just get better okay.
We have been having horrible storms here as well and I have been busy re-setting all my clocks as the power keeps going out. Sometimes I feel these loud claps are right over my head.
Take care of yourself, you are in my heart and prayers....:-) Hugs

please check in even if you are not feeling well. We will miss not seeing a post from you. It is always so awful when you are sick. The whold world seems to stop because everyone counts on us so much. I do hope you get well soon. Lots of hugs and prayers...

Hi Jerelene,
I keep checking your post on my reader everyday to see if you've posted.

I have been missing you! But I want you to get better so get plenty of rest and take all of your medicine and drink plenty of water and tea!

I still have your family in my prayers Jerelene. I'm glad to here that the lightening didn't touch your home. Is it very open where you live Jerelene?

Anyway , just get better and I'm glad to hear that you are taking care of your self!
