Back to the Land of the Living
I have been punished for making fun of The Boss getting the flu. I thought I had dodged the bullet, because he came home sick last Wednesday and I was fine for days afterward. But then early Sunday morning it hit me like a cartoon anvil on Wiley Coyote!
I can't ever remember being so sick. I did nothing for four solid days but stay in bed and go in and out of sleep induced by Dayquil and Nyquil. And I must say the Boss was a pretty good nurse when he was here. But that's probably because I'm a much better patient than he is when he's sick!
I feel like I'm a bear just coming out of winter hibernation! I missed the Dragon's birthday and so much more! Thanks to all of you for posting topics and keeping the conversation going. I'll try to catch up as best I can.
Thanks for the e-cards wishing my recovery, but why were they for THE BOSS? I can assure you, he did not suffer nearly as much as I did when I was on nursing duty!
I still feel a little weak and lightheaded and am still coughing and sniffling, but from what I hear from others who've had this nasty flu, that's normal. I haven't eaten much, so it will take me a few days to get back to my old sarcastic self. I know Dragon has missed me the most, though he will never admit it.
Photo above is of the dog Phoebe I posted about a while back, the old, abandoned one-eyed, crooked-toothed dog that we thought we'd never find a home for. She is living in the lap of luxury in Kentucky with a wonderful woman who spoils her rotten. Here,Phoebe gives approval of her new bed. The photo illustrates me in my sick bed!
