Aw shucks! Sick just before Christmas!

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

I was hoping to have a quiet but family oriented day. I have some illness that makes my body hurt starting with extremities, arms and legs and then more toward the body itself.

I have a sore throat but no congestion. If the throat really gets sore, pain goes up toward my

I had this once before but much worse. I was sick for 2 weeks then and could not get out of bed or even turn over before. The pain left little by little till only my feet and ankles killed me.
I had to use hubby's manual wheelchair to get around for a few days.

Luckily I don't feel that bad this time. It seems to be going away a little , too. I used the wheeling chair and a stool to get around yesterday. Today, with Tylenol, I have been up and around till 1:00 pm.

I'd swear but I know SP does not permit that.

    emoticon It is no fun to be sick anytime but especially during the Holidays. Christmas last yr is just a blur to me-I was down with the flu and on the 27th DH was in the hospital with it.
Hope you are feeling better soon.

    The second time you've had it...not good. Were you running around like crazy getting ready for the holidays? Sometimes stress will get me to the point where strange things happen to my body. I wish you well.

    Ugh - that seems way unfair, especially to get sick right before Christmas :( Glad that you don't feel as bad as you have in the past... let''s hope this heals up quickly & that you're up and at 'em again in no time. Take care of yourself!
Merry Christmas!
