I'm Better, Thanks

I think I'm going to live, but it was touch and go there for awhile. Saturday I woke up feverish and achy, no big surprise since I had been several places last week that I could have got a bug. Wednesday Mom had a Doctor's appointment and then we had a barbecue for the residents at the nursing home on Friday.

By Saturday night I was sick as a dog. I lay curled up with my fleece throw in the bed moaning loud enough to get ample sympathy from Hubby.

Some people just don't do sick well, I'm one of those. I'm a pitiful sick person thinking that I'm dying when my temp gets above 99 degrees. It could have been much worse, I have had stomach bugs where I spend hours on end with my head or my tail in the toilet but this one was just fever and body aches. But my arms and legs felt like they were falling off so I did quite a bit of complaining.

Hubby was wonderful. He did what he knew would make me feel better, he ran the vacuum. I have a thing that if I'm on my death bed, my house still must be clean. This is a strong gene, I've passed it along to my daughters...sorry. But even the lines in the carpet didn't make me feel better, I was SICK!
This has been the only thing that made me feel better. I bought it at Walmart the other day. I have bought other Acai juices but this one was really impressive. Here's what their website has to say about the product...

They are vital for the proper formation of every cell in our bodies (especially nerve cells). B-vitamins are needed for everything from the metabolism of carbohydrates (which provides energy) to mood regulation, nervous system support and healthy blood flow to name just a few. B-vitamins are water-soluble and can be depleted rather quickly from the body. These vitamins are not stored in needed amounts because water-soluble vitamins (such as B-vitamins), are excreted by the body unless they are needed immediately. That’s why daily supplementation of B-vitamins is critical—our bodies do not keep a reserve.

That and a little Tylenol have pulled me through the keyhole once again!

    You gotta forgive me but I laughed at the photo of the "sick dog". Poor girl, feeling like that is no laughing matter. Feel better.
