back in the land of the living

After being sick for four weeks, I am finally on the down hill slide. Yeah, the sucky part is that I am still on the stinkin’ hill. BUT, I am glad I’m finally sliding. It all began with stabbing pains in my kidneys, then severe aches in every part of my body, followed by chills to the point of having four blankets and two comforters piled on me and finding no warmth in sight. With some unmentioned added bonuses, I dubbed that part the flu. Then began the coughing. I think. It’s hard to remember after four weeks of illnesses and no break in between what order everything happened in. Then the coughing turned into Bronchitis, and I was very close to being diagnosed with Pneumonia. I think I might have if I hadn’t started getting some sleep at night. Oh, did I forget to mention I had a sore throat and Pinkeye? I am sick of being sick, but there is now some light at the end of the tunnel. I actually want to do something now. Not too much, but the more positive thing is that I am making plans to do something when I have the energy. Yea!

I am so thankful for my absolutely God-send of a husband who has bent over backwards to help me in every way he can. I am also extremely thankful for my wonderful mother-in-law who has been a tremendous help with the kids during this very long sickness.

So, that’s where I’ve been. I have a lot of information to share and should have shared a long time ago, but I was laid out on the couch or on my bed. Doing nothing. I didn’t even want to read, and if you know me, that means it was a doosie.
