Where Have I Been?

Hey you guys! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been sick.  Not  just a cold and sniffle kind of sick either, but the kind where you’re in bed for long stretches of time.

On December 22nd we had our big Christmas choir program at church, it was beautiful, but the very next day I was sick! I went to my mom and dad’s house on December the 24th for our annual Christmas eve together thinking I just had a little bug, but I laid on the sofa the whole time and didn’t get near anyone. My hubby even made me a plate of food so I didn’t have to get near the food…you know, so I didn’t contaminate anything in case I was contagious.  I am SO glad we did that, because Christmas day I was really sick….I had the flu! (no one at my mom’s got sick…shew! I’m glad!)  We had our Christmas morning with our kids, and then I went to bed…..and I have basically been there ever since! I was already out of the time zone to be able to get tamiflu so I fought it at home with mucinex, sudafed and ibuprofen.  I ended up going to the dr anyway because my ears were hurting…turns out my flu went into a double ear infection and bronchitis.  I have been one sick puppy!  I finally got to the point where I could get dressed, put on some makeup and venture outside. (after I took a short nap from getting dressed and putting on makeup..NO energy!)  My first trip was through the drive thru at the bank,  and the drive thru at Dairy Queen.  Ohh…a BIG adventure indeed! lol  My next time out was with my hubby to go grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant where we had been given a gift card for Christmas.  Those have been my two big excursions thus far.  I am still having quite a bit of sinus issues and headaches, but I’m doing a lot better than I was.  I’m on my second round of antibiotics, so hopefully we’ll have this thing wrapped up soon!  This is NOT the kind of break a blogger wants to take!  Please be patient with me as I get my energy back…don’t really feel like doing many projects….although I did make a list of things I’d like to do while I was sick! HA! 
I truly hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful start to the New Year!  The way I look at the start to my year is, it can’t really go anywhere but up from here! :0)

Blessings

I'm glad you are taking it easy, Missy! I know it's hard because you want to feel better, but you sure don't want to relapse. You have had a rough time of it. I'm just tired with the nagging cough now...but I think it's nearly gone. Flu is NO fun! XO my friend!

We live in similar worlds....my hubby and I both came down with the flu Dec. 26....and we are just now feeling like we MIGHT live. It was rough!!! Of course, I didn't have enough pto to be off the entire two and a half weeks, so I had to go in and make others sick, as well. Good thing I work at a hospital. lol They look at it as being good for business. Glad you are better!!!

That nasty flu has been going around here too. A couple of co-workers have had it but I've been blessed to have missed that bullet!

I'm glad you are feeling better and prayers for a complete recovery soon.

Missy,
I hope you are feeling better as each day passes. The important thing is to not overdo because you will wear yourself down and have a relapse. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2014.
Your Friend,

Oh my, you've had a bad time of it. I've known so many people who came down with the flu through the Christmas holiday! Very similar to your story. Good to hear you are coming around. I'm looking forward to getting to know you through your blog. I found you via Diann on Facebook.
