I’m sick again. Another cold. That’s two colds and the flu in four months. So far, 2014 has not been a banner year for health. The worst part of being sick today is that my youngest son goes in for an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, and I’m taking him. I’m sure the hospital will be thrilled to have me there, blowing my nose and sneezing. I’ll have to wear a mask. That should be a real joy.
My son is fine. He’s had this test done before. He tested positive for Celiac antibodies in a blood test a few years back, and they did an endoscopy. They did not find Celiac, but they found eosinophilic esophagitis. EE usually means you choke on food or have trouble swallowing. He has no symptoms. Since he’s at the age where the pediatric GI doctor wants to hand him off to an adult doctor, they decided to re-test and see if the medication they put him on cleared things up.
Hubby was home Saturday mid-day and left this morning (my older son drove him back to the yard). He was home two nights, and that’s always nice. I knew it was going to be a good weekend even though I started to feel sick Friday night. Saturday before I picked Hubby up, I stopped at Tim Horton’s for a cinnamon roll. I pulled up to the window to pay and the smiling drive-through clerk told me that the woman in the car ahead of me had already paid for my breakfast treat. Wasn’t that nice? I will have to do that for someone else. It was a sweet and thoughtful gesture from a stranger.
Yesterday Hubby and I drove to SeaBreeze – a small spit of land between Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay a few miles from where we live. We had burgers at Bill Gray’s and then we sat by the water for a bit, watching the sea gulls, ducks, geese and a swan. Here are some pictures of the gulls and the swan on Irondequoit Bay. My favorite pictures of gulls are when they are in flight.
Happy Monday, everyone!
