That's pretty much how I feel right now...down and just plain tired (excluding the mud, please!). Hep, it's official, I tested positive for the H1N1 virus, better known as the swine flu...bleh! Luckily, I'm not as sick as most. I contracted a close cousin back in 1976, so my immune system has already gone through most of the "been there, done that" list.
For the exception of sore stomach and back muscles, from excessive coughing, wheezing like Linda Blair and fatigue I'm actually doing alright. It's hard to fall asleep listening to your angry bronchials, I decided to give them a name, Earl is the deep popping sound and Yolanda is the loud, shrill weeeee-heeee sound. Poor Earl never gets a chance to give his side of the story and finish a sentence because Yolanda constantly interrupts...crack, cra.....weeee-heeee, weee-heee!! Ok, you're thinking, she's turned into pig brain matter, but it's a way of just trying to fall asleep...give them a personality, name them and forget those sounds are coming from your body!! LOL
Now my sweet man has it and I think it's going to be worse for him...he never had it's close cousin back in '76. He's called his doc and so far no one has called back. I told him she just can't prescribe something over the phone....he has to be tested and the results have to be turned into the local, state and national health depts. I think she's trying to avoid seeing him. Told him to go to my wonderful baby doc...he's so adorable and will take him...no, he's a man, doesn't ask for directions nor does he see the logic in making an appointment with another physician instead of waiting and waiting for his to call...oey vey!!!
Well folks, feeling a bit tired. Just letting you know I'm fine, I'm under house arrest till next Friday when the doc releases me from my piggy constraints and hopefully, can enjoy the Celtic Women concert next Sat. Peace out!
