Really, I Did Get The Flu Shot

I received my flu shot this past Fall, in October. I thought that would keep me from being so terribly sick for the flu season. I have not been able to talk  at times.  I cannot sing at all !  My voice has been so hoarse, and the coughing just won’t stop!  I had fever and chills just one night. I have been 10 days with this ‘disease’ what ever it is. I wish it would leave, now ! Hard headaches have decided to join in also.

The pollen count in my zip code has been extremely high ! Oak trees, Juniper, and some kind of grasses are the culprits.  I don’t really know for sure what I have, and neither does my doctor. He’s trying his best to help.

My primary care doctor prescribed Clarinex and an anti-biotic, Doxycycline…as he heard wheezing when he checked my lungs, last Monday. I will see him again tomorrow morning.

On top of this, I damaged a nerve in my right thumb that travels down to my palm, and up my wrist ! Ouch ! It’s doing much better, though.

Add to that, my left leg got gashed open a good two inches, near the bottom, last Sunday. It’s still seeping but I think it will be okay. I’m experienced with the bandaging now, as I learned from the skin cancer surgeries in 2013 and 2012.

Botton line : This is why I have’nt been around in WordPress. So sorry, as I do love to read other blogs and spend some time here, but with all this happening to me, I just don’t feel like it.

Oh I know this bout of illness will pass, but it’s rough just getting by, day to day. I have a good friend, Charlie, who calls to check up on me, and also helps me when I need something from Publix or the pharmacy.  🙂

I hope everyone is doing well, or as well as can be expected.
