Wish I could report that I’m feeling much better, but I would be lying. What I thought was a cold was actually the flu. Then, right when I thought it was over, I developed bronchitis.
Y’all, this coughing is the worst! At least now I can get two or three sentences out without coughing my lungs out– that’s if I remember to speak in a steady tone. Before I could barely speak. Never in my life have I been so sick. Not even sure how it happened.
On another note, in a few hours I’ll be with my mom! Haven’t seen her in a few weeks due to being sick. She’s finally out of the nursing facility (was discharged the day before Thanksgiving) and living with my sister. Don’t worry, safety precautions in full effect – masks, gloves, sanitizer, Lysol, etc. She’s been asking to see her dog since she was admitted to the hospital in August; PLUS, they discharged her without sending home some of her daily medications. Yeah.. not good. So I’m delivering those. Well, delivering the medication but bringing her dog/my dog back.
Guess I forgot to mention that I now have a dog. Will share that story another time. The last time she was in a car for more than 10 minutes was over seven years ago when my sister drove her cross country from California to Mississippi. Y’all, I pray that I handle her well – feeding, potty time, etc. This new doggie owner thing– because she’s only been with me three weeks (was with my brother)– has not been simple. So yeah, this is going to be quite the adventure!
Well, let me get ready to leave. It’s about 1.5 hour drive to my sister’s. Please keep me in your prayers.
