ctlss's Journal, 16 January 2013


I did not sleep well last night...my nose was so stopped up. I told hubby that if someone gagged me, I would suffocate. I finally got back out of bed at 3 and took some more TheraFlu, then sat up and waited for it to take effect so that I could sleep. Went back to bed at about 4:30 and slept until 10:30.

We had to go to town today to pick up some t posts, dog food, and more medicine. While in Kroger I got more tuna and yogurt as well. We came back home and my youngest son came over and helped me fix the fence. Part of it was down, and my wild dog, Toby, has been getting out and terrorizing the neighbors! Fence is all fixed, I am medicined up, dinner is done, and I am ready to get some more sleep. Dan made steak for dinner, along with brussels sprouts and squash stir fried in bacon grease, bacon for the salad, and salad. I am very sad...I can't even smell the bacon cooking, let alone taste anything! :(

Weight is still going down, but much slower now. I expected that, and am really surprised to be losing any while I am sick, with all the medicine I am taking.

Well, that's all the news that's fit to print from my corner...hope all is well in your's!

Okay Steph. This is it! Time to kick this nasty bug so you can smell and taste your bacon! That's just not right to not be able to smell and taste bacon! Take care dear friend!

Do you not consider a sinus infection a secondary infection?

Take care of yourself Stef! It is just not right when you cannot smell bacon cooking. Try some vicks to help you with the stuffy nose at night (if you aren't already). It really helps me.

You went outside and fixed a fence????!!! With the way you've been feeling???? And after running to town, too. I hope you managed to get to bed early....you're going to need that extra rest, considering what you managed to do today. Take care....

Thanks, all...your comments raise my spirits. Buffy, I have had lots of sinus infections...this just my nasal membranes swelling. There is no pain in my cheek bones, and when I blow my nose it is just watery and clear. Never fear, if it turns into an infection, I will be at the doctor, toot suite...I promise. Love all of you...hugs.

Sandy, since hubby is blind, I HAVE to take myself to town to get what I needed. My son was busy with his chaplain duties at the UAW union meeting, and I was out of medicine. As for the fence...I watched, for the most part while my son did the work. Okay, well, I held the posts in place while he fixed them. Believe me, between hubby and baby boy, they aren't letting me do ANYTHING!!!
