It has been a slow week. I've really got nothing...except a bad head cold. It started on Tuesday with the feeling a worm went up my nose causing tingling and sneezing. Then buckets of snot. Then my head swelled up with pressure behind my eyes and teeth. I ran a low fever causing achy bones. Poor Toby! He would leave in the mornings with me sitting in my recliner in my comfy clothes (sweats), covered in a blanket, and a small pile of used Kleenex all around me. Then he would come home to the same scene. I did absolutely nothing the last couple of days, but sleep. I love my recliner when I have a cold. I build my little nest around me with computer, phone, Kindle, Kleenex, blanket, etc. Then when I get sleepy, I can just kick it back and rest. The slightly upright position is much better for me and my congestion/dripping.
I'm doing much better today, although, I woke up with a headache from sinus build up. But just a little time in the recliner sitting up and some massaging of my sinuses has worked wonders. Either my fever broke or I had a hot flash - it's hard to tell sometimes. Since I'm feeling better, I think it was the fever breaking that caused the sheen of perspiration. Anyway, things are looking up. Still, I will stay home again today in hopes of being completely healed tomorrow.
Tomorrow I am supposed to go to WF to take Mom to get her nails done, maybe out to lunch, and whatever else she wants. My brother and I are also supposed to look at a place called House of Hope, which has a dementia unit. It is a very nice place. I don't know if Mom is ready for such a place or not. This is all new to me. But I want Mom to be engaged in day to day stuff - not just lying in her bed whining. On the other hand, maybe she is still too cognitive for a place where everyone has dementia. Is cognitive the right word? Anyway, we will just check our options.
Here is a little watercolor I did last summer from a friend's photo taken in Cuba. I love the colors of Cuba and would like to visit there.
