I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
I am doing much better now that I'm getting this pneumonia out of me. I will never take my breathing for granted again!!! When I got to the first ER, they admitted me as quickly as I could say that I couldn't breathe. But the nurse and my mother really gave it to me while I was doing the breathing treatments. "You should've came in Monday nite when you weren't feeling right. Why did you wait so long? You have to stop smoking!!!" Blah Blah Blah.
So I have to give up smoking. It wasn't like I was addicted to it, I just smoked because it relaxed me. Plus it gave me a better buzz when I drank. No biggie on that part.
The only thing that really sucks is I can't drink because of all the medication I'm on. Steriods, antibiotics, you name it. What's worse is that I was on even more at the hospital. They gave me an I.V. to give me steriods amd anitbiotics. The steriods where making me jittery where I couldn't sleep so in order for me to get me rest, they gave me sleeping pills. On top of that, I had the worse headaches and my back was achy so they gave me Vicodin!!! So let's recap...Steriods, Vicodin, Antiobiotics, and Sleeping pills!!!! What a combination. Then on top of all that I was constipated from all the meds and so I experienced my first inema. GROSS!! So now you can see why I was so happy to get outta there.
It's been pretty hard but everyone in my family is helping including my son's father. I can't walk for long periods of time and I just can over exert myself until my lungs get stronger. But overall, I'm better and I take my asthma more seriously.
But oh comes the good part. My son went to school yesterday. It was such an experience for me. I really couldn't go to sleep Tuesday nite cuz of the steriods. But I finally got to bed, it was like 1am. I just burst into tears cuz I was so happy this day had finally come. My son's father and I took my son to McDonald's for breakfast and then we went to the school. Of course I was snapping pics of him with his lil backpack on. My God was he cute. As soon as we get there he sees a computer and runs over and plays with that. He could care less if me and his father were there. So a lil after 9 the teacher had kicked all the parents out and I stood in the hallway and cried. And instead of my son's father helping me cope with my crying, he pokes fun at me with the other parents. ASSHOLE!!! But thank goodness I wasn't the only mother crying. There were 2 more to join me and we stood proud.
The teachers said that overall he did extremely well, no crying. She had gave him some water activities to do and he loved them (of course he loves water anyway). Then when the water activities were over, he ran to the sink!!! What a goof. The only thing they said is that he doesn't follow rules, but hey that's what he's there for....TO LEARN!!!
His father took him today and he was so happy to get up and go. When he got there he saw a lil boy crying and had that look on his face. But his father said that he didn't cry, he was a big boy. So that made me happy.
I have to admit right now I'm just on cloud 9 with the new school stuff. I can't wait to be a PTA mom and a chapperone!!! I just want to do a lil bit more than what my mom did for me when I was in school. She didn't have time to chapperone and go to our games cuz she had to work. I still have to work hard, but dammit I have vacation and personal days that I will take for him!!!
