It has been a week since I was hit hard with congestion, coughing, raspy throat, a bitch of a headache that didn’t go away, and the urge to crawl under my covers and die. I kept thinking it will get better but it didn’t. I kept telling myself I had Christmas Eve dinner to give and that I needed to start planning and buying what I was going to need. But all this in my head didn’t clear away the fact that I was in trouble.
When I try to drive some where I found myself on the wrong side of the road. My depth perception was really off and I knew I needed to be off the road except in an emergency. I had a medical appointment to keep on Wednesday and I made it. Thursday an appointment in the morning for Brandy but when I got her picked up I headed for my doctor’s office. No appointment but I was going to wait until he saw me.
I was one of last ones in his office but he at least told me it was a very bad sinus infection. He said I would not be at peak performance by Christmas Eve but I should be able to pull the whole thing off okay.
Well I’m taking my pills (one every 12 hours) and Robitussin sugar free every 4 hours as needed. When I bend over I feel like my face is going to hit the floor, my hands will shake sometimes, but at least I’m coughing crud up.
I have taken my long list of things to do and made it into four days. It is not so scary this way and is really quite doable. So now I have my birds to feed, my bed to make with fresh linens, and a bit of time to rest before I think about mine and Brandy’s supper. This is going to work if I don’t lose my temper and go on a maiming animals spree!!! I just got to remember I love them.
Take care and let me know how your plans are going.
