Since my last post I have been slowed down in work on the house and in my photography. For part of it the weather caused delays. For the past week it has been illness. I started off with what the doctor called a viral infection, got medications to take, and ended up getting worse. On return visit to the doctor I was told that I now have THE FLU. I was given a new prescription and sent home. I had planned to go get the flu shot and the pneumonia shot but delayed it due to the start of winter term at the college where I work. Unfortunately the flu got me before I got the shot. I blame it on the wildly coughing and not covering her mouth lady in the bathroom the day before I started feeling ill!
Today the coughing has slowed down but my whole body aches so much and I have bad pain in legs and back which makes it hard to get comfortable. At the moment, my sore throat and ears seems to feel better as well, so may be on the mend. The medication is 2 pills a day for 5 days and have 2 more days of dosage to go. Wish me well! The doctor would not give me either shot yet and advised to do it in 2 weeks when my system is recovered. All of you who have not yet got the flu shot--GO!11 The pneumonia shot is for more higher risk people--me because I am 62 plus have damaged lungs from having double pneumonia when 19 which landed me in the hospital in oxygen tent. So if any of you are also at risk, get that shot as well. I do not want to see any of you go through what I have been through with this. It is awful!! Stay well.
