~ Hit By the Bug ~

When I get down I get all the way down. This past Thursday I was hit by the "bug" ended up at the doctor's on Friday. Now those of you that know me know I do not abuse my insurance, you know I had to be bad to go to the doctor. My throat and chest was on fire, I could hardly swallow a drop of coffee. Because of Mr. P's health issues she checked for Strep and Influenza A. Thankfully I didn't have either of those, just a good ole severe sinus infection. Honestly I question that a bit, how could anyone be this sick with sinus. I've coughed so hard I've developed stomach muscles I didn't even know I had. Now, par for the course for me, I don't have a voice. This hasn't happened in a very long time. I used to loose my voice a lot, 7 to 10 days at a time.. now folks I do not have time for this stuff, tax clients await as well as the final preparations for Spring Open House. So... I'm drinking a lot of coffee and tons of water.
Plans for getting all of my personal Easter decor out has been put on hold...
After getting Mr. P fed and his meds out I've slept the last 2 days away. I'm praying tomorrow I get up feeling better and ready to get this show back on the road.
Keep your fingers crossed the energizer bunny is back on track soon...

I'm so sorry, Lynne. I am sending get well wishes from my house to yours!!

I have been feeling yucky all day, too. I have my spring sale this weekend....and I'm sadly no where near ready...and not being able to work like I need to is not a good thing.

Rest......

Oh , hope you start feeling better fast, but it does not sound like a fast thing to get over. I had a bad cold for 3 weeks and no energy for 4 weeks!

Praying you feel better soon!

Oh, Lynne...I feel so bad for you. It's bad enough to be sick, but to be sick and having work looming over you is the worst. Feel better soon.

XO,
Jane

Ah, Lynne! I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how awful sinus infections can be...they can really knock you out, as you already know. Take care of yourself! If I lived close by, I'd come over and help ya! :)

Hi Lynne!

I had that bug a few weeks ago. It takes a good 10 days to get up and halfway going. A good month to feel normal. About the cough... I thought I was going to need Depends...

Feel better soon and take it easy when you get back on your feet.

xoxo Bunny Jean

Hope you get better real soon. I am sure you feel extremely tired also. Takes a while to spring back. I had the same thing. The doc put me on Z Pac (some kind of pennicillin). I got better fast. Sinusitis is what they said. Caught it a second time when I took grandchild to the doctor.

I enjoy reading your blog and looking at your pics posted.
Blessings
Betsy

Oh dear sorry to hear you have been feeling low. I have come across a few bloggers this evening who seem to be under the weather. We need Spring and soon.

Lynne,
I hope you are feeling better. Take care of yourself. You never say anything about the extraordinary effort required to take care of a loved one with Alzheimer's but it takes a lot of energy. I'm praying that your back on your feet soon.

Julie said...

Lynne,
Hope you are feeling better. You never mention the energy it takes to care for a loved one with Alzheimer's but it can take such a toll. I'm praying you are back on your feet soon.

Oh Lynne, I am sorry you are feeling so yucky!!! I know you are so full of energy this must make you crazy. Take good care of yourself. XO, Pinky PS, I LOOOOOOVE your bedding!

Been thinking about you lately and hoping that you're feeling better soon. There are some pretty nasty bugs going around and it takes about a week (so the doctor says) to get feeling a bit better. Take care of yourself. :)
