BOY...Have I been Sick !!

What I thought was a 12 hour virus turned into a bacterial infection that
has lasted almost 6 weeks.

WOW...
really a rough time for me.
Antibiotics will not work on this bacterial stuff....

Pepto Bismol  in chewable form...
a powder substance, mixed with water and a bit of SUNNY D...
Gatorade....
Smartwater...
plain water....
rest






and lots of IMODIUM. 



Needless to say that being ill for this long,
I lost nearly all of my strength.

sooo weak !!

Having no appetite,
I had to force myself to eat...
nothing sounded a bit good to me...

Stacy brought me POTATO SOUP
and CHICKEN SALAD
and I could eat a little.
She stocked me up on GATORADE and SMART WATER... 
she also took me to all the doctor visits...

Jello and fruit juice seemed to sound good to me
but I sure wasn't getting much strength from them....

and then, one day I thought how much I've always loved
CHICKEN POT PIES...


I stocked up on these little pies...
getting lots of calories, vitamins and other good things.


drinking FRUIT SMOOTHIES every day not only added to my
strength-building diet,
it made my HURT FEELINGS feel MUCH better.
😍😍😍

and just when I thought it couldn't get any better,
my sweet DEEDS brought these to me....


Thanks to all my wonderful family....
David, Stacy and girls checked on me every single day....
Bailey Kay brought me ice cream...
and
the biggest gift of all ...
everyone was praying for me and,  as always,
GOD LISTENED.

I have more to add here but will do another post another day...
right now, it's time for a
SMOOTHIE...
and a nap....

Love to all...

Week 2 of being sooo sick ....


.....just to let you know I was POSITIVE I was dying
but here I am...still breathing.

Won't be too long 'til I'll be back in the swing of things ...
just need to gather a little strength before I do very much.

Love ya'll....
