Why Nott Me: February 2008

Papaw fell, breaking his hip & femur bone. With his heart surgery is scary, but w/o the surgery his survival was 30%. He had surgery yesterday. His heart didn't stop. He was up this morning sitting in a chair eating his breakfast. Amazing.

..the best laid plans.. yesterday was going to be my "get things done" day. But because of Papaw's fall, it didn't go as planned. So I rolled with it. At least got my groceries so that I could stay home today. I've done laundry and have been fighting a headache. I have lots of other things I'd like to do, but can't seem to get very motivated. I've about decided to take a nap. Yesterday was stressful. Maybe my headache would go away..

Sick, very sick.
At work people have been coming into work sick. Drive me nuts! They'll be running a fever and still come in to comtaminate others. In our office of 7, three people in the last two weeks came in sick... as of last Friday...we had all been contaminated. Friday, even thought I knew I should have stayed home, but I went to work (mosltly be hey, if they come in sick, so can I).... I only stayed 2 1/2 hours. My skin hurt. Flu. I can't remember the last time I felt this sick!
I had been fighting against getting sick with vitamin C and Mucinex, and a netty pot. I came home, took nightquil and slept. I slept, only getting up to take more nightquil until 8 am Saturday. Got up Saturday to a low-grade fever. Took tylenol and rested all day, still felt exhausted. Today I got up, feeling much better, not 100%, maybe 80. Not bad, will keep up with vitamin C, Mucinex and neety pot. Have a terrible hacking cough, that feels like lung might just come out too. As an asthmatic, not good, this cough.. is BAD. I'm hoping it will disappear in a few days, if it doesn't I might end up seeing doctor. bahhh.
