Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy!!



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!

Men......Well, mine finally learned after the last round, and darned near getting sent to the hospital. They have a slow learning curve.....
Is there a clinic he can go to? A walk in? That was where I took DH. And no, you don't get anti-biotics over the phone.....
Glad you're better Georgina but do rest and try and be patient. The more rest, the quicker it leaves. It was hell on both of us, but honestly, it scared me seeing hubby that sick since he is usually the healthy one.
And yes, you have to have humor with it!!!!

XXOO!!

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

Georgina, I'm so sorry to hear that you're still on the down and out...and that your fella now has it!

However, I do think the pic of the pig in your post is ADORABLE.

... have you thought about just drinking a lot of tequila so you don't REALIZE how bad you feel?

Hey girl: I think Tristan has the best advice, look for the worm at the bottom of that bottle. LMAO
I hope you feel better soon. And as for men when they are sick....OMG, the worst. After all these years, I simply let him run his sickness, not worth the hassle. I love him but forget about it.......

Georgina, oh I hope you feel better soon. Stay in bed, get lots of rest, drink orange juice, drink chicken broth and lots of water.
Take care.

Hope you are better in time for the Gig, know you've been looking forward to it. Can you get Buttercup Syrup in the States? It's a cough mixture for Kids - I love the taste so I always feel sort of pampered if I get some! Pigs are cute though, aren't they :o)

Georgina said...

I want to thank you all for your kind, lovely, and down right funny comments. Anne, I hate those verification words or what ever they're called...do you find sometimes you want to put other letters just to make it a legit word???!!?!?!

My hubby finally went to see my doc, his called him 5 mins. before he left for his appointment...she prescribed Tamaflu. My honey liked my doc a lot...said he's very thorough!!! Well, duh!!! That's what a good doc does!!

Anyway, my cough is almost gone as is my sore tummy and back muscles from all that coughing, but Earl and Yolanda are still around at night...arguing as usual...I just tell them to pipe down so I can get some sleep...they're very polite because within 5 mins., they quiet down and argue on the side!!! The only effect I have now is the fatigue, oh that fatigue...I'm going crazy!!

Glad many of you liked my piggy picture, but I picked something out that described just how I was feeling!! I will admit, he is a cute piggy!!

Again, thank you all you wonderful blogger friends for your prayers and comments. Tristan and Linda, I'll go buy some Patron...hey, I deserve the best right now!!! LOL

Love ya all,
Georigna

Oh, Georigina! I am so sorry to hear you are feeling poorly and have that awful flu. Take care of yourself! I have been very bad about making the blog rounds, but I had a sick kid here last week, and then I got some weird headache thing. ANYWAY, sorry to be so late in wishing you a speedy recovery! xoxox Pam
