It's that time of year again
The cold from hell. Two days of sleeping round the clock- really! Now I am so out of whack I don't know if its day or night- except it's dark out and DH and DS are sleeping so it must be night. And I'm, finally, for the first time since Wednesday afternoon, completely awake.
The good news? Well, the killer sinus headaches are finally controlled (notice I said controlled, not eliminated) by Comtrex, the ribs are only sore when I actually cough and not all the time, and, when I want to be, I can be vertical for more than 2 minutes! (Not sure how *much* longer, but I've definitely done more than 2 minutes.) Puffs with lotion are strategically stationed by the bed, the recliner- YES! I sat up and watched TV tonight for several hours!!!- and next to the computer here.
I have been WAY too out of it to stitch, tat, or do anything crafty, but I did get some reading done. Two more days of meds, fluids and rest and I should be good-to-go for school by Monday- which is fine, except I will be missing a BIG party tomorrow. :(
It happens every year: the back-to-school-get-sick-from-the-kids-germs episode. At least it's here and (Please!!!) soon to be over.
Hope everyone else is feeling better than me and having a good weekend!
