Friday, Hit by the flu

    
I was hit by the flu.  I suspected as much with the body aches and then the fever and the heavy chest.  I was right into the doctor early (8:10) Thursday morning and was put right on Tamiflu, which is supposed to shorten the run and ease the symptoms. Yesterday was a bust and I was on the sofa all day hardly moving.  Dressing mom was so painful every bend and stretch was just so fun.  Lil sis has mom and I feel bad but I just can't deal right now. Because of the Arthritis the run will be a little longer but I am holding up well.

The weirdest symptom was the severe pain in the back of my lower leg muscles.  They were firing up involuntarily and then so sore, but today is much better.  The doctor said that I should be out of the woods early next week.  Fever sits around 100 so it is workable, but exhausting.

     I now have 5 wedding dresses in the shop.  I cannot work on them until I feel better, if my hands slip when I am ripping out a seam I could really do some damage.  So they sit and hang staring at me.

     Binge watching netflix is my goal this weekend. Also drinking lots of liquid. Oh, and puttering, don't forget puttering.

     I am going to make hubs help me fold all the bedding in the laundry room and put it away.  It is just so heavy right now.

I feel a nap coming on, you will have to excuse me:)

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

    2. FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

      Life indeed is GRACE, I'am Daan Sophia currently in California USA. I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business. It all started when i lost my home and belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com).. So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks

  2. Hubs has "man flu" aka a simple plain old cold. But you know men.....you'd think he was dying. sigh.
    We've been sleeping in shifts here for the last 2 nights since Hubs and I are keeping each other awake with the coughing and hacking. ugh.
    I'd come serenade you some more(and bring Diet Cokes-no pastries for you right now!haha)but I need to rest my throat.
    Sending you Get Well hugs from cold and prolly snowy soon PA!

  4. That's the same meds my daughter had to take - she was very ill from Monday to Thursday, went back to work Friday and Saturday for half days. I think the meds really did shorten her illness and eased the symptoms so hang in there just a few more days and hopefully you'll be good as new!

  6. I had the flu for a week before I gave up and went to the doctor. I took Tamiflu and called a week after doctor visit to see how long recovery would be. He said--two or three more weeks. WHAT! This was two weeks after I got the flu. But, it took every bit of that month to get well. I am sure you will get well sooner. I had lots of muscle aches, too. I hope to never get the flu again! Hopefully, your mother won't contract the flu. Lying down, doing nothing was my life.

  8. I am so sorry!! Please don't stress about what is not getting done and, for heaven's sake, don't try to do it! Watch Netflix to your heart's content - have you seen The Crown? That was my binge weekend a while back. Feel better.
