House Mouse!

I just wanted to say sorry for not being around the last few day or the next few. I was on antibiotics for a severe kidney infection & I had a reaction to them, where my brain swells (yeah I know what brain lol!) causing really bad & I mean really bad headaches to he extent that yesterday I couldn't pick my head up off my pillow or look at lights without being in tears! So I am sorry if I don't get around to commenting I will be back hopefully by Monday after a few days rest!! The hospital last night said I'd just got to wait it out & let the meds come out of my system naturally!! Not to bad today I can look at lights without it hurting, but I still feel like I've had one to many whiskeys! lol
