Flu, Day 9

Day 9 of this nastiness. My throat seems like there’s a jagged rock caught in it. Or maybe a small blade. Each swallow, each cough is terrible. I really feel like my mouth is filled with sores, though none are seen to me. I’ve only a slight headache and I really feel drained. Slight fever the primary two days, then no fever.

I went again to the physician yesterday to ensure that the rattle in my chest isn’t pneumonia, and the doc didn’t really feel like a chest X-ray was crucial presently. She additionally ran a strep check, which was unfavourable. She advised me to go residence and climb again in mattress, keep away from contact with individuals, and relaxation. I used to be reminded that this flu can last as long as 14 days and all you are able to do is relaxation. I really feel like I’ve been in mattress for 3 weeks already. I’m taking all the advisable medicines, consuming a lot of fluids and resting. I’ve accomplished nothing however relaxation. I did get out of the home on Sunday and Monday so I might go to the visitation and the funeral with Tess for her grandpa. It was an emotional two days and Tess actually didn’t need to get sick, so we stored our bodily distance, which was arduous, as a result of all I needed to actually do was hug her.

Tess went house yesterday, and I climbed again into mattress.

I used to be going to be main WW conferences this week for a co-employee that’s on trip. That didn’t occur. Antonia, one other co-employee, has been superior about overlaying every part for me this week.

I missed Char’s (our three yr previous grand daughter) third party on Saturday and I’m uninterested in my bed room partitions.

Every single day I bathe and placed on clear PJ’s and spray down the bed room with Lysol in hopes that I velocity up restoration. Nothing appears to be working.

We’re suppose to go away for Mexico on Saturday, and I simply have my fingers crossed. We did purchase the insurance coverage, so we will cancel as late as Friday if want be. Happening trip and feeling even just a bit sick sounds terrible. I need to benefit from the meals, the actions, my buddies, and the very last thing that I might need to do is make anybody else sick. I additionally would hate to go not feeling my greatest, then have Mike not take pleasure in his trip as a lot as he might be. Fingers crossed.

Weight Watchers and the Flu

The primary few days that I used to be sick, I used to be decided to proceed to rely factors and monitor, and I did. The previous few days I haven’t been too fearful about it. Chilly fruit sounds higher than something and scorching meals doesn’t sound nice, nevertheless Oatmeal feels good on my throat.

My Cousin and an Replace

I’ve been speaking about my mother’s cousin however I don’t assume that I’ve ever talked about her identify. Ann. Her identify is Ann. She has been in a nursing residence since final Monday and is basically doing properly. We have now talked on the telephone a couple of occasions and when you keep in mind, she has a listening to assist and speaking on the telephone is absolutely troublesome. I often yell, however proper now when I attempt to yell, it simply comes out in a whisper, and it hurts. So actually our telephone conversations are simply her telling me what they’re doing for her, that she likes them, and that she loves me and can name once more the subsequent day. I say “okay”, and she or he tells me that she hears that.

We’ve got a gathering on Thursday to debate her future. They’ve been variety sufficient to reschedule our assembly as a convention name so I don’t should go threre. I’m positive none of them need the flu.

Thanks for prayers and constructive ideas on that entire state of affairs, and I hope issues proceed down the great street for her.
