Thank you for all your well wishes and I'm feeling a lot better although apparently I sound like a pneumatic drill when I'm asleep but I've only woken myself up a few times with the noise (Joules on the other hand has been having trouble sleeping)!

Last Friday when I felt cold, shivering and had a headache which wouldn't shift I spent the morning in A&E. Of course with Mollie. On Wednesday Mollie came home from school complaining that her toe was sore but she hadn't knocked or hurt it in any way. I had a look and it seemed fine, no swelling, no broken skin. An hour later Mollie couldn't walk, her toe was red and swollen and she couldn't walk on it. By Friday it was very sore and she had resorted to using her crutches (luckily the hospital had refused to take them back because it costs too much to sterilize them). An x-ray confirmed no fracture so the doctors decided to take blood to check for arthritis which if I say worried me slightly that would be a huge understatement, worse still, it would take a week to get the results. It was a long weekend in which I felt rotten and worried far too much. On Monday I managed to get hold of my GP who chased up the results and was able to tell us that Mollie doesn't have arthritis or any form of infection and to continue to rest the toe. We were very relieved to hear this and Mollie had named her condition Mollieitus. Today there is some improvement, Mollie is still on crutches but the swelling has receded and it is not as sore.

After that stress it was great to receive this joke from John.

Ouch on the toe! And they have no idea what may have caused it?

Glad to hear you are feeling better!

Lil Mouse said...

cute sayings. some of them i've never heard of course, but some slogans are the same here in the US so it made me grin..

Asha said...

She probably has sprained it or teenagers just get pains like that sometimes. Glad it's nothing serious! Take care of yourself too, Flu is everywhere these days!:)
Jokes, HeHe!!

nikki said...

Ouch! Hope the toe feels better soon. You too!

thefoodsnob said...

Very clever of Mollie, hope she is fine soon.
Great condom jokes, thanks, I needed that today!


Alix said...

Hoe Mollie's toe is back to normal soon.
Excellent jokes - very clever

Karmyn R said...

Poor Mollie. (If it doesn't clear up soon - I'd take her back and make sure they recheck for a bacterial infection).

and the funniest condom? KFC

JoeInVegas said...

Mollieitus? Have to look that one up in Wikipedia.

elena jane said...

ouch on M's toe, hope she recovers fully!
lol @ the puns...

Beckie said...

That toe - what a mystery. I was thinking gout, but then I just looked it up and found that gout is a form of arthritis - so I guess that wasn't it.

I hope everyone is feeling better soon.

I like the Ikea saying...

Steffi said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better!I hope Mollie is fine soon!

Funny condom words...

Sam said...

Tell mollie I think I have Mollieitus too - not on my toe, but in my head. I'll wish her (and you) better if she wishes me ;)


Willowtree said...

I don't like the sound of that toe business at all.

frannie said...

that is so odd about Mollie's toe! Poor thing!

lisa marie said...

Boy somebody had a lot of time on the hands - oops - to come up - double oops - with all of those!

Glad you're feeling better.

Pamela said...

The toe worried me, too.

(channeling Chris, bwaa ha ha ha)

Deborah said...

Oh poor Mollie - that's awful! Hope the cleaning is going alright and you have a lovely visit from your Mum!

Alison said...

Oh..poor it better now?? that is awfully strange!

dawn said...

That is a weird situation with the toe. Mystery illnesses are not great. At least they ruled out infection and things that could cause immediate long term distress. If it continues, they will find it.

my4kids said...

Mollieitis that is cute. Hope your both feeling better.
