Sick

Wednesday evening as soon as I made it inside the door I started sneezing and coughing and had to carry around a box of tissues. Figured it must be allergies since it happened so fast. So I took a Claritin and it didn't do anything so I took another one. Probably not the smartest thing to do because about the middle of the night I was wide awake with the saucer eyes. And by then I was feeling worse so I suspected a cold.

I ignored it on Thursday. I couldn't ignore it Friday but just kept going anyway. Not it's Saturday and I'm just staying in. Not such a bad thing either as it gave me a chance to read blogs - which is something I miss.

It makes me recall the days of being sick during caregiving though. Judy says that when I'm sick it makes her feel lonely. I wonder if Dad and Mom felt that way? Being sick as a caregiver was awful. I don't miss that.

Our weather is nuts. Thursday we had an ice and snow storm and at least one death and Friday morning it was 15 degrees. Monday it back to 70.

I'm going to read my books next (actually my Kindle books).

Sorry you're not feeling well! Time to snuggle into the couch with a blanket and book, and if you fall asleep all the better.

Hope you feel better soon! That's crazy weather right there! Sounds like you all need a deep freeze for a while to get rid of the germs.

Take it easy and push the fluids:)

Sorry you aren't feeling well, Terry. Those quick striking colds are the worst.

I thought about you when I saw the Oklahoma weather on the news.

Hang in there.
