The family flu bug...

came home to roost yesterday. Dottie was sick for days a couple of weeks ago; my grandaughter was sick last week, so apparently when Dillon came to spend the night Friday and we went bike riding on Saturday, it decided it liked me.

We thought Talia was spending the night on Monday night since Dottie was off today. I got up, vacuumed, did laundry, mowed and made sure things were ready for her to spend the night. Then it was remembered that she has vacation Bible school this week.

About the time I headed for the door to go to work, a wicked headache, my first in months kicked in. By the time first break rolled around I felt like someone was standing on my innards, just below my navel. I survived work, came home and was in bed by 2 and slept 'til 12:40 this afternoon. So much for everthing I was supposed to accomplish on her day off! Still cramping and aching all afternoon.

Knowing that they were going to be short of people at work, I went anyway. After first break I chilled and shook and my teeth chattered for about 3 hours; it took an hour to get caught up enough to go get my shirt out of my locker. Finally about 11p, that ended, and I almost broke a sweat.


I'm hoping the worst is over now, though I'm headed to bed early again. If I wake in the morning and I'm not hurting I'll go the gym; if I am then I'm going back to sleep again...

Sorry about not visiting and catching up with you all...I feel guilty every time I let a day or two slip by!

Don't worry about us, just get yourself better. We'll all still be here when you get back.

Hope you are feeling better. Stay home and rest. Really, it's the best thing for getting over these viruses. You'll feel better sooner the longer you stay home and sleep. (I know I'm very bossy about this stuff, but it's true!)

Oh, Alan, being sick is no fun at all! I hope you feel better soon! Robin's right, you know, it is important to take care of your body when it isn't up to par. You are so good at taking care of others, be sure to include yourself with the same loving care. We'll be here when you are ready.
