BOY...Have I been Sick !!

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

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...
plain water....

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 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

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...
the biggest gift of all ...
everyone was praying for me and,  as always,

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

Love to all...


  1. So glad you're feeling better. Being a sickie is no fun. Take care.

  2. Yay! I'm so glad you're feeling better! You have such a wonderful family, Lord bless them for taking such good care of you! Welcome back!

  3. So glad your feeling better. Missed your post!!!!

  4. Sorry to read that you were so sick, but glad that God has answered prayers and you are feeling so much better. Chicken pot pies are so comforting. I have some in the freezer right now. :-)

    Continue to grow stronger with each new day. Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

  5. BJ, You have been in my prayers. So glad you are better and back blogging. You will regain your strength. Making ourselves eat when we do not feel like is a plus. You have to keep hydrated when sick like that. Blessings to you and your wonderful family. xoxo, Susie

  6. Oh, my.....I've been looking and looking for you and came here to email you! Sooooo glad to see your post! I am so glad your back. Prayers will continue for your speedy and uneventful recovery!

  7. Welcome back to the world. Sorry you have been through so much illness recently, but hoping for a good year ahead.

  8. Chicken pot pies and smoothies to the rescue! Sorry to hear you were so sick but glad you're better now and gaining strength back! I swear by Imodium too. It's great stuff when you need it, boy.

  9. Glad you're feeling better. Missed your posts.

  10. I am so glad you are feeling better. This past week I seem to be developing a headache by around noon. Then the rest of the day I am pretty much wiped right out.

    God bless.

  11. OH, Honey! I am so glad you are finally back among us. I have been praying for you. That is a long time to be sick-so I am glad that pot pies might do the trick and bring you back to health. Just think-some poor chicken made the ultimate sacrifice for your health. No - I am NOT a vegan--just trying to make you smile!

    I think the fix for comments is on my blog today. It is working for me and a few others. I hope you have a good weekend and keep resting until you feel 100%. Much love to you- xo Diana

  12. I have wondered if you were sick since your last post. So glad you are better. Those bacterial infections are no fun. Sending much healing love and prayers your way.

  13. Good to hear from you and know you are deliciously headed to recovery!! Maybe a few biscuits slathered in strawberry jam might help!!


  14. I was thinking of you, just today and wondered, “bj, haven’t heard from her, I better check on her”
    and then this evening I see you have posted . . .
    Happy to hear from you, sorry you have been ill, happy you are turning the corner to feeling better!

    When I was so sick this past year, the only thing that sounded or tasted good was a baked potato.
    And cold water . . . And even with that, the potato was something I ate seldom.
    Water for days was about all I could do. Finally agreed that I had some kind of parasite episode!

    You have no weight to lose so stay with those pot pies . . .if they taste good . . . Good News!
    You are in my prayers and caring bj . . .

  15. I'm so glad you are getting better! I have been worried about you!

  16. Bless your heart!! I knew you HAD been sick but I did not realize it had lasted 6 weeks. I have been praying for you and it's a good thing HE knew you were sick!! SO glad you are on the road to recovery and that your sweet family have taken such good care of you!

  17. So sorry that this has lasted so long! Praying you are stronger each day and what a blessing to have such a wonderful family looking out for you!!

  18. WELCOME BACK!! I have missed you so much. I just asked Diana yesterday if she knew what was up and if she had heard from you. So----very glad to see this tonight! Keep getting well my friend!! Enjoy those pot pies and as many smoothies and treats as you want!!

  19. I am sorry that you have been so sick but very glad that you are able to eat some pot pie and are starting to get your strength back. I'm recovering from total knee replacement surgery on one knee and haven't been able to keep up on my favorite blogs lately. My laptop is uncomfortable for me to use for more than a few minutes at a time right now.

    Take care and keep feeling better each day.

    Susie D.

  20. Glad to hear that you are feeling better. Those fruit smoothies look delicious!!

  21. So glad you are doing better! Hugs and love 💖

  22. OH NO:( I am sorry you have been sick for SO long but happy that you are on the mend! Take good care of YOU and get that strength back! Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way!

  23. I was wondering too - just last night I thought of you and was going to check - and here you are thankfully, and getting better!
    That was a nasty infection bj, so sorry it hit so hard and took so long to go. Thank goodness you had the family close by.
    Stay strong and work your way back to good health.

    Thinking of you and sending a big hug.
    Mary -

  24. That doesn't sound good, much have been antibiotic resistant bacteria. I hope you feel better

  25. Yikes! Where on earth did you pick up that bug?! Glad to hear you are on the upswing...I had been wondering about you. Pot pies sure take me back to childhood!

  26. So glad to hear you are finally feeling better sweet friend. Being down that long is tough. Praying you continue to regain your strength.

  27. Sounds like you are on your way to a complete recovery so glad to hear this. Prayers will continue. Love Madeline

  28. I'm sorry you've been so sick but so glad you are feeling better. It's good that you are close to family so they could check on you and help you out. Keep getting well, my friend.

  29. I am so sorry you have been so ill. Hope you will feel completely better soon.

  30. SO, so happy to hear from you BJ and that you are recovering...must have been a bear....big hugs for feeling better soon!

  31. Whenever God brought you to mind I've said a prayer for you. Happy to hear you are on the way up! I was just thinking about chicken pot pie! Glad you have loved ones so close and so helpful. Blessings!

  32. Oh, dear!

    I hope you are 100

    Oh, dear! I hope you are 100% soon.

  33. So thankful to see you here. Lots of love and prayers.💛💛💛

  34. I knew you were ill before, but I didn't realize it had gotten to this! Not fun at all. Glad you're on the mend. Chicken pot pie and smoothies to the rescue!

  35. So glad to hear you are finally recovering. I was worried.


  36. I'm so happy to hear that you made it through nasty. I'm glad you found something to eat and enjoy. I love pot pies, I make them with left over chicken and turkey. Marie Callender also makes a nice frozen one. But they do put the pounds on---good for you, not so much for me!!

    Feel well,


  37. Bj, so sorry to hear you’ve been so sick for so long. But, so glad to hear you are gaining your strength back and feeling better. Yes, eat those pot pies, full of protein to help get you back to feeling like yourself. Take care and sending you a hug.........

  38. It's good to see that you had strength enough to post and bring us up to date on yourself. I'm glad you're seeing some improvement. I'm praying it's all good from here on out!

  39. Oh my, I'm so sorry you have been so sick. I can't imagine not have antibiotics to take a bacterial infection away. I can only imagine how tired you must be.

    Thank goodness for your family. I hope you get stronger every day.




  40. So sorry to hear you have been so ill, BJ. May God bring completely restored health to you soon!

  41. Welcome back!
    Linda :o)

  42. I am so glad to finally hear from you, that was a bad one. Get well!

  43. Happy to hear you are feeling better!!

  44. OOO, my heartfelt thanks to all of my friends for the sweetness you are showing me.
    For a few days, I thought I was on my way to meet with Mr. Sweet by THE GATE...but all your prayers made GOD decide to keep me on HIIS precious Earth awhile longer. I love you all so much.

  45. When growing up, we kids were cured with a lot of potato soup. Now a pot pie is not my thing, but if it works for you go far it. Time works in many ways.

  46. I'm so sorry to hear that you were so sick, but delighted to hear that your family jumped right in there and helped you out. It's good to see you back blogging . . . and here I thought you were on vacation.
    Connie :)

  47. Wonderful to have you post! You have been through such an ordeal. True that you have quite a prayer team. 😊

  48. Oh my goodness!
    I am so sorry you were so very sick!
    I am happy to see that you are on the mend, and are back here blogging!!!

  49. I'm sorry that you were sick for so long. I'm glad that you're feeling better!

  50. I was just about to the point of writing you and email and asking how you were doing. I missed my 'visits' here with you. Take care and get back your strength! Sending good wishes you way - and a hug or two! Jackie xxx

  51. My mercy BJ! Bless your heart! I do pray you are much, much better and recovering. I just hate to hear you were so sick. And girl, I bet you lost weight and you already ain't big as a bar of soap. I want to share something my nurse sil shared with. She said to take regular sprite and any gator aid and mix half and half and drink it often. The gator aid of course keeps you from dehydrating and the sprite gives you the calories your body need. I swear one time I was so sick that I believe this saved me a hospital bill. Anyway, I keep both on hand as I do not like gator aid but I can drink it with sprite added to it. Praying you are well. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  52. BJ. I am so, so, sorry. That is totally grim. In fact, I can't think of a lot that is worse. You keep hanging in there and I hope everything evens out soon. I'm grateful you have special ones taking care of you.

  53. Oh my goodness. You have been through the wringer. Something like this all you can do is get plenty of rest and eat healthy. I am sending you my prayers and a great big hug.

  54. MISSED YOU so much! God is good and so happy you are on the mend! Rest and take care.

  55. I was wondering what was going on with you & I'm so very sorry to hear you have been soooo sick! Hopefully, you are on the mend if not fully recovered by now. Putting you on my prayer list, & get well soon.

  56. You will get well soon. It is better to take liquid foods during this time and no spicy foods which will make you get cured soon...

  57. Oh BJ I'm so sorry to read thigs. My prayers are with you to feel better real soon.. Summer is here and I know you're looking forward to enjoying your beautiful patio and swimming pool area out back. Prayers for sunshine and lotsa love!!


  58. Dearest BJ - what a terrible time you've been having. It's not a lot of fun taking an enforced bed rest, glad to see you are getting through and coming out the other side. Smoothie cheers to you!

I love my blogging friends and most of all my family but these spam prone people are so rude and selfish have made my blogging not nearly as much fun..
