Still Down

I am feeling a bit better at the moment. This illness has been one wild ride of aches, fever, and chills followed by odd sweats. Usually after the sweats, I feel better, but then the cycle starts again. My head often feels like a lead balloon, but mostly the congestion is in my chest. Toby brought me some expensive Mucinex DM. I don’t know if it is working, but for what it cost, I will take it. I have to admit that I have been worthless around the house. Toby has had to bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan. This morning he had to iron his own pants. It is nice to know he is capable and maybe I should feel guilty, but I just don’t have the energy. When I have had a bit of energy, I have tried to keep up with some of my favorite blogs, but mostly, me and my therapy dog have just been resting. Thanks for all the kind thoughts and words they do make me smile. Jesse has her first Hawaiian photos up – so go by and check them out.

glvesdhThis has been the worst sickness season that I have ever seen. I do hope you are feeling better. It just seems to "take time" for people to get to feeling better. I hate the "take time" stuff. Make some hot tea with lemon...that's what my mom always made me.

This must be some nasty stuff that's goin' around. It's good to hear you're better, Lou.

I do hope you get to feeling better! Mucinex is supposed to be good stuff. It's what my allergist recommended for me when I have the crud. Please don't feel guilty. I'm sure Toby understands.

I'm thinking this is what Randy has, nothing has helped much. Well if you need a toddy call me. I also make great hot tea. Healing to you!

Hope you feel better, but if you don't go to the doc! I had pneumonia and waiting too long to get the right meds. Take care of yourself!

Hang in there Lou - and I agree with the comment on pneumonia -don't let it get out of hand. You're in my prayers today, I pray speedy healing and recovery for you. :)
