Hi there! I am still here, a little worse for the wear, but otherwise in quite good shape. Thank you so much for your well wishes and concerned emails wondering how I was doing. Here's a little recap.
I had pneumonia. I got exhausted. I got antibiotics. I got an inhaler. It was no fun. I picked up a secondary infection, and instead of killing two birds with one (antibiotic) stone, they seemed to feed off of each other. I got new antibiotics. I got nauseous. I got exhausted. It was no fun.
I have been eating crap, watching crap, and feeling crap. For the last week and a half I have been able to be up and about for about an hour a day, doing fun things like doctor’s visits, homeopath’s visits, physical therapist’s visits, pharmacy visits, and the always exhilarating grocery shopping. I go to watch grandson graduate from kindergarten which was totally awesome. I was able to keep up with the eldest grandson's regular scheduled sun spreading visits, but not with the one year old. Poor little fellow, he could not understand why he could not come with us.
I finished my 19 days of antibiotics on Tuesday. I take vitamin C, zinc and probiotics to boost my immune system, I take 2 homeopathic medicines to drain my lungs and get some energy, I use the inhaler to breathe better, I do exercises at my physical therapist’s to drain my lungs and I have my ears full of little needles. Lots of fun.
I have been spending the full 3 weeks on the couch and I have been watching my hair grow and the telly. All day, every day. I have watched grown women trying wedding dresses, whining about being daddy’s little princess. I have watched women hoarding 743 lip balms and 432 hot sauces because they were free. I have watched reruns. I have watched reruns of reruns. I have watched reruns of reruns of reruns. Seriously, the hair thing was the most interesting, especially since I have been wearing it straight while I’m waiting to go to the hair dresser. Fascinating, right. No wonder my brain feels like mush.
But, come mush or come shine, I am determined to get back to my Whatever quilt this week. The supplies for the last layer is sitting right here, waiting for me. I'm adding raspberry details, love raspberry. With 3 weeks lost work wise, I won’t be able to make the deadline for the Architectural Challenge, but I can live with that. Not finishing the Whatever Quilt is however not an option, but first I need to rest for a while. Writing on the computer is surprisingly hard work.
I’ll feel better tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
