Seven days

It started last Sunday evening with chills.  I could not get warm enough.  I went to bed feeling very much unwell and it was downhill from there.  Body aches.  Headache.  Eyes hurting.  Blah, blah, blah.  They did a culture to see if I had the flu but it showed up negative.  I think if they would have did it just one day later it would have been positive.  I have had the flu before and this was exactly how it went down.

Seven days.

The crud.  The aching.  The low grade fever.  The nasty congestion.  Sleep was my only comfort.

Seven days.

And on day eight (which is today) the body aches disappeared and I actually feel a bit human.  Still a cough.  Still dryness in my throat and some other mild symptoms...  but nothing like I have been for the past seven days.  

We had to be away for a hearing expo for two nights and three days.  I was miserable, but made it through.  Thank you God!  

Today = First day of spring.  I am delighted to type those words.  

Are you as happy for the first day of spring as I am?

Gracie was groomed today.  She looks and smells lovely.  


  1. So sorry you had to suffer through this.

    So glad you are coming around, to better.

    Yes, Welcome Spring!

    Btw, I wear a surgical mask, in stores. To PROTECT myself from all those germs, floating around out there, still. So far, it has worked. But just because the calendar says Spring, the germs have not gone away. Since you got one, just a week ago.

    Gentle hugs,
    Luna Crone

  2. I am SO glad you are better! And YES, I am so happy that Spring is here! Now you should be healthy for the best season of the year.

  3. Ick with that illness! Surely indeed sounded like the flu! Its amazing what we have to muddle through when we have to do something, isn't it? Great that you are feeling a bit more human and that it is the first day of spring!!

    I bet Gracie was not delighted to be groomed.


  4. Sorry you had to be out and about with the crud. Bed does feel the best when you have it.
    Sounds like Gracie is daisy fresh for spring!

  5. Hope you feel better soon. I had it earlier in the season and it just hangs on and on.

  6. What an ordeal, I am glad you are on the mend.


Veterans Day - Remembering Dad

Pulling Dad's letters from an old tin,  I feel his loneliness as I read his letters home.  (FYI, Jo was my mom) Jan. 18, 1...
