Day 974 in the flu “death grip”. Okay, a slight exaggeration, though it feels like it has been a long time.
I have had very little sleep in the past 36 hours, about 4 hours total. The stuffy nose, watery eyes, fever and a cough that sounds like a 53-year-old car trying to start ( a really HOT muscle car of course ha ha), has made sleep just a distant memory. I am grateful for the 10 hours I spent in the ER which allowed me to catch this lovely bug as they did give me some pain meds which have makes it almost bearable. I was able to eat today, my appetite seems to be returning, which means strength is just around the corner.
As I sit here with my cup of tea, another dose of antihistamine ready to help me breathe..I am grateful for so much. The house is warm and quiet. The dogs and hubby snoozing, nice warm blankets, and my friends here on WP to keep me company. Life is good.
We are getting back to seasonal temps here, 50s and 60s during the day and 40s at night. Hopefully I will be able to get out and about soon…I noticed the “Selfie” photo challenge, and you will all be relieved to know that I am passing on this one for now. I would not want to subject any of you to this sight at the moment! (smile) Love and many hugs (wearing my surgical mask)…
