Blood Tests??No, Thank You!

Well, the weekend is over and Thank God Eric didn't get any fever!*PHEW*
This means that tomorrow morning we are NOT having any blood+urine tests done!Yay!

No needles!No syringes!No baby kicking and screaming and no mommy having a stress attack!
Anywoo...Me and Filipe have a doctor app tomorrow.We're going to our ophthalmologist and do our annual check up.
I'm feeling a bit better today.I don't feel feverish any longer.Thanks so much everyone for caring!You ladies rock!
See you girls tomorrow during my usual blog hopping! ;)

Stress Test

Stress Test

I'm not sure exactly how this works, but this is amazingly accurate. Read the full description before looking at the picture.

The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary's Hospital.

Look at both
dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A
closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact
that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find
differences in the two dolphins.

more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress
that person is experiencing. Look at the photograph and if you find
more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.


My results? Well I'll be on Vacation for the next couple of months!

Aaaahhhhh Crap!......

This will definitely not be a good weekend...
I'm feeling sick.My brain is pounding and I feel like if someone poked me in the eyes...
Not to mention how bad my backs hurt!...
I have a stuffy nose and right now I'm feeling kinda feverish...
Plus I'm in that time of the month!.....
I think i got this from Eric...
Since last weekend he's been acting weird...During day time he's ok but when the night comes he gets a bit of fever...We took him to his pediatrician and she said it's probably nothing...Anyhow,she asked me to see how will he do through the weekend.If he keeps having fever at night,Monday morning I'll have to take him to do some blood+urine tests....
Hubby is working all through the weekend and I have to deal with 3 restless children,when all I feel like is going to bed (see how severe this is???I hate sleeping during day time!)...
Hope your weekend gets to be better then mine.
