Still sick

I am still rather sick.  My throat still hurts although it isn't extreme, so that is good.  I am able to swallow without too much pain.  The over the counter medicines do help with that.  In about 10 minutes I can take some pain medicine.  I pick up my antibiotic after 5, which I am looking forward to because it should help a lot with the throat and the nose and eyes.  My eyes aren't watering like they were yesterday, although they are as red as yesterday and it looks quite funny.  I am glad about the fact they aren't watering so much today.

I have a lot to work on next week and I think with Maia and Tillie's help I will accomplish a lot.  I just need some help, that's all.  I don't see the point of not admitting when I need it and right now I do.  So they are coming on Monday to help with the State of Michigan stuff and the bankruptcy stuff.  I can't wait until this is all finished and taken care of and I don't have to think about it anymore!  Yeah!  Won't that be nice?  I think so.

I hope to talk to Richard today to see how he is doing.  I know he is working super hard right now for his family.  The kids, I think, are doing well.  I haven't seen them in 2 years though.  It seems like forever since I have last seen them.  I hope to see them at Christmas at least.  It feels like so far away from now to me though, even though it is only less than 2 months.  What can I say?  I have no concept of time right now because of this cold and everything that has been happening.

I think I am going to go and lay back down.  I am simply exhausted and can't seem to stay awake much longer.  I don't care if I sleep the day away as long as I get my medicine after 5, that is all that is important.  I am sure tomorrow will be a better day for this!

I am missing mom.  I can't say if it is more than usual or not, but I am missing her.  I am, however, glad I can't pass this cold to her as she was a horrible patient when she had a cold the last few years.  The tough little lady would turn into someone I never recognized.  She is where there is no sickness or anything like that.  I just wish she were here with me.

I do hope this finds you doing well and healthy, unlike me.  I hope you do not have a fall cold and that you are enjoying the weather whatever it is at your place!


  1. So sorry you are sick! I hate having a sore throat! Hope you get some good rest and feel better very soon:)

  2. Make sure and set your alarm clock, or you might sleep the day away. That is what I always do when I am sick! You want to start the antibiotic as soon as possible. I can't believe they made you wait this long!
    You will ALWAYS miss your mom. I do. And it's been two years. There's so much that has happened since then that I want to tell her about, but can't. Your mom and my mom are probably up in Heaven, sittin' on a cloud, drinking a tropical drink (one with the umbrella in it), watching all of us down here trudge around.
    I hope you feel better soon!
