Thanks for all the wonderful, supportive comments while that respiratory flu temporarily took over my body. And my life.
Wow. Did it ever hit like a ton of bricks. It was brutal - but not as brutal as the one that downed me years ago before I started having flu shots.
This recent experience (along with some of your comments) has me wondering about flu shots. Apparently coming down with this ailment a week or so after getting that needle in the arm is a common occurrence.
Dilemma for next year. No flu shot and risk catching a whopper or get stabbed and risk a mini-version?
To mangle some famous Scarlett O’Hara lines: “Oh, fiddle-dee-dee…I’ll think about it tomorrow...”
An aside for hockey fans – my flip-flop 7th place Toronto Maple Leafs beat the 1st place Ottawa Senators 3 – zip Saturday night.
Still smiling and shaking my head. What the hell? What’s with you guys?
And take note, Cip. I’m not gloating. I’m still in shock.
My thanks to Psychgrad for leaving this comment on Saturday, “And good luck to the Leafs tonight… cough…cough…”
I think it helped. Do it again!
Please bear with me. I’m hoping to check in with everybody but I’m not 100% recovered. (90%?) And then there are all those mundane chores left undone these past few days. The boys have been a great help but let’s face it. They don’t possess my x-ray vision and unrealistic standards. Nor have my nagging (request) skills been up to scratch lately.
