I went to the doctor today.  I have Costochondritis.  I have a hard time pronouncing this.  I keep wanting to say Costco.  Anyway one might ask what is Costochondritis? Well let me teach you what I learned today. 
Costochondritis: is pain caused by inflammation of the joint between a rib and the breastbone (sternum) or between the bony part of the rib cartilage.
I have had pain in my chest since I awoke Monday morning.  I decided today was the day to find out what the pain was.  I could not believe it was lasting so long.
The cure: take 800mg of Ibuprofen 3 times daily for no more than 10 days.  I have never taken 800mg in my whole life. 
Life should get interesting around these parts.  I hope Devin is ready. 

I am so excited for the weekend!  Fun plans are in store but seriously mostly relaxing plans.  I would love for Devin to randomly buy Modern Family Season 2 when he gets out of school tomorrow so we can enjoy it all weekend long. :)

Yep, that's what I have now. The only amount of ibuprofen I know how to take is 800mg! Haha. I'm hoping you and I feel better soon.
