OH NO!!!!

Hi all two diasters have struck in my household, firstly my laptop cables and plug ones have gone so now wainting for new power cables to arrive tomorrow so hoping that is the problem and i don't have to send my computer away as it will be gone for 7-10 days arghhhhh, so this morning quickly nipping on my friends one to catch up.

Now the bummer one adam has been diagnosed with the dreaded swine flu and sadly he is a very poorly boy ended up at hospital sat night with him as he was quite unresponsive and his temperature had spiked to 41.3oC so i knew this was not good. they reckon he has picked it up as his immune system low from his operation, and on phoning the school this morning he only 1st case confirmed has to be my boy to spread it round the school!!! so now looking after a poorly boy and trying to contain his pku levels as well so a bit of a stressed an non sleeping house hold oh the joys!!!! just got to get adam better for next week as its his birthday, and i so so do not want it so i'm drugging my self now with vitamins.

grrrrrr, i so hope to back tomorrow peeps as got some cardsto show and i want to be back in the world of blogging, facebook and normality as a computer is normality for me (HOW SAD)

happy birthday to me and update

Hi all yes its my birthday grand old age of 32 now!!! but to be honest its not really felt like my birthday at all. As u know adam was to go into hospital on thurs which he did and after his operation on friday he had a severe reaction to either the pre-med or general anesthetic or both so we only got out out this afternoon and only cos they are hoping that adam might drink a little better at home and if not then he has to go back in again tomorrow so i'm so hoping that he picks up pretty quick as the childrens hospital in glasgow (yorkhill) struggled with his dietary needs and obviously a stressful time for me and adam. so since home i've just been trying to make adam better.
so thankyou for messages on here and facebook folks so appreciated xx

P.S as i've not been about i'm going to extend my birthday candy till the end of the week as if i'm back in hossie tomorrow then i'm not about to post plus postal strikes etc, so folks get posting on blog candy and i might even be extra nice and show a piccie of the prize!!!!!
