If there is a tv movie, I want to be played by Gabrielle Union

The weekend I dreamed of and the weekend I had in reality were as different as night day. As I drove down Friday morning, I received a call from my mother asking me to go to see a doctor.

Long story short, there is a chance I have been exposed to MRSA. It is a story that I will go into another time. So basically, I was an hour from my mom but not allowed to see her. The doctor couldn't confirm I have MRSA but couldn't deny the possibility based on the evidence presented to him. For the next 10 days, I am on high powered antibiotics. I am very upset by all of this for many reasons--not be able to see my mother or my son. I drove down Friday morning and back up Friday night.I am regarded as Patient Zero by family and friends. Even though, technically, I am not Patient Zero--that is someone else. Anyway, to them, I am Patient Zero. I have spent my weekend taking antibiotics, watching tv, reading magazines and figuring out how to handle this situation come Monday.

One positive that has come out of this saga. I found out my weight. And even without meds and therapy, I have maintain my weight. With the stress of my mother's health, new job and being away from my son, I am still at a healthy weight of 107 pounds. I was 111 pounds at my physical in July. I celebrated with a 12 piece chicken nuggets, fries and lemonade from Chick Filet. And a milkshake. I deserved something after a not very nice Friday.

If a tv movie is made about this whole sordid affair, I do want Gabrielle Union to play me. She would make a kick ass Silly Girl! Of course, right now, I don't feel silly. I am Pissed Off Girl.

  1. oh I'm so sorry you have to pass through this too.. I am so inspired that you handle these situations with such patience. I really do admire you. Thank you for reading my blog too :)

  2. Glad your weight is ok! I hope you don't have MRSA. The antibiotics and some rest should kick it, I would hope!

    By the way, I love Gabrielle Union :)

  3. Sorry to hear that all is not great for you at the moment though I am delighted to read that you are maintaining a healthy weight and a wonderful attitude to life.

    I don't know what MRSA is and I do hope that it leaves your life soon.
