Please Go Away Cold!

Was feeling better last night when I went to bed around 9 pm, but woke up at 2 am this morning coughing again and with a very stuffy nose. I still believe this is a cold because I do not have a fever and I have not had one the entire time I’ve been sick.
I called the appointment scheduler at my retinal specialist’s office and reschedule tomorrow’s appointment for next week. Now I have to find out if Jean will be available a week from Friday to take me to the new appointment.
Never did get out of my pajamas. Thought it would be a good idea to stay in bed as much as possible today. I did get up to let Hiker outside a few times. She mostly stayed in my bedroom with me. I made sure I got up and made some lunch.
Watched Y&R in my bedroom. Felt better around noon than I did this morning when I first work up, but then it always seems like when we are sick, we fill worse early in the morning and late at night. My nose was no longer clogged. Actually it was runny. Still had a slight cough so I drank two big glasses of tea and lemon. I don’t like honey.
Huge advantage of being retired…when you are sick, you can just stay in bed all day.
This cold is so annoying. I feel bad in the morning, then better around noontime, then I start to feel bad again as the afternoon goes on.

Hiker taking care of me when I'm sick:


  1. I have noticed that too that you feel worse the closer to evening it gets, when you are sick??? Do not know why that happens. Sounds like this cold just has to run it's course. You are doing everything right to combat it. Hang in there.

  2. PS) Hiker looks like a real sweet pup taking care of you.

  3. I hope you are feeling much better this morning. It's good you have Hiker to take care of you. They can be so much company when you live alone.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
