Okay so I have caved to the good drugs...

I am taking the smallest recommended dose of the cough medicine and have been ordered to bed until Monday by my doctor. They also said that there is not enough codine in the cough syrup to do anything for the pain. For some reason that makes me feel better about taking it. I have had one dose and the Puff is still squirming so that makes me feel better as well. Right now I just feel tired but not loopy so I am hoping that the weird dreams will not rear thier ugly heads.

Last night did not go particularly well for me without any medicine and I could barely move by the time I made it to work this morning. My boss told me to call my doctor and go home. She even offered to drive my car for me so that I didn't have to actually drive home.

I made it home but I am still hurting. I have had my lunch and I will be off to bed for the afternoon. The only trip out of the house I can possibly see is for more reading materials if I am up for it tomorrow.

Thanks for all of your well wishes and kind thoughts. I shall be around when I am up for it.

if it makes you feel any better, I had an ovarian cyst removed when I was 24 weeks pregnant and was on a morphine pump for about 24 hours and my bun turned out fine.

I just wanted to stop by and say hi, since I friended you a little while ago (on flyingcarpet's rec, of course). :-) And, as I told Rebecca last night, I didn't want you to think I was stalking you or something. :-)

I hope you're feeling better soon!

This post finally triggered a memory of mine. When I was six months pregant with Girl I caught a horrible cough. We were on holiday in Spain, and I ended up going from chemist to chemist begging for pregnancy safe cough medicine in broken Spanish. It turned out that Robitussens was allowed and it helped a lot. Girl came out fine and wasn't harmed.

Dunno if that helps at all, but it occured to me, so I thought I'd tell you.

Get better sweetie!

I am glad to here that you are taking something for the cough. It seems like stopping that trauma to your body is the most important thing at the moment for both you and the Puff!

Rest well!

Feel better, sweetie. I'm sure everything will be fine and the little one will be brilliant!

((hugs you))

I do hope you feel better soon, and get some much needed rests. Best wishes for you and Puff to both be healthy and happy soon.

*snuggles you*

Do you have a laptop you can curl up with in the bed? I'll send you some links to things to read, so you don't have to go out and exhaust yourself.
