Life outside the blogosphere

Wow, the last 5 or 6 days (I've lost count) have been horrendous. I haven't been this sick in years. I completely blame it on the snow because when I woke up Saturday morning and realized that I still had to go work the Lil Lambs consignment sale even though EVERY business in the city was shut down due to snow, I literally almost passed out. But I made it there safely, Starbucks in hand. Within 30 minutes I was getting lightheaded, cold and clammy but sweating....weird. I managed to do some things that didn't require a lot of effort, but once I got home the bug just bit me even harder. The chill and shake episodes I had rivaled those of when I had mastitis the first week after Zach was born and oh nelly, those are NOT GOOD. My fever was rising and fast.

Then came the cough...the one that hurts every part of your body so much that you just start crying when you feel the tingle that will create another episode. WOW it sucks!! I went to the doctor on Monday (I had the appt. set up already for something else). I don't think she realized she'd be pulling double duty. Anyway, dr. said bronchitis possibly walking pneumonia and put me on antibiotics and today I finally got the good cough medicine. I have yet to go to work this week; I really hope to go tomorrow. There's only so much shut in feeling I can take!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know how you feel. Just got over a cold myself. Been taking Omicef, but still have that stubborn cough that is so hard to get rid of.

I was doing so well this winter until the minor stomach bug and then the chest cold came onto me. So much for a sickless winter.
