Still Not Feeling Well

Because I didn’t feel well yesterday, I went to bed a 7:30 last night. Woke up several times during the night due to the fact that I was coughing or that my nose was congested and I could not breathe. Stayed in bed until around 9 am and when I did get up, I did not change out of my jammies and I did not make up the bed so I could get back into it anytime I wanted to. My ribs are very sore from coughing. My throat was not as dry today and was not as sore. My headache was not as bad either. I used my Neti-Pot so now my nose is not congested. I don’t think I have the flu because I am not having any abdominal problems, plus I’m hungry and usually with the flu I’m not. Most of the problem is with my upper respiratory system. I have not been this sick since the first week Ben was in the hospital.
The main reason I finally got out of bed for a little while was to do my laundry. I was running out of underwear (LOL). I never did get to do my housework yesterday, but it’s more important for me to get myself well than to have a clean house. Plus this coming Tuesday, I have an eye appointment with my retinal specialist, plus I will need to refill some prescriptions and also will have to pick up my finished tax returns.
Hiker had trouble understanding why this was not a “routine Saturday”. She could tell that I was acting differently. After breakfast, I went back to bed for a while and she came in and got on the bed with me and just stared at me. Later when I got up to make some lunch, she tried to get me to play with her.
This morning when I first got out of bed it was very dark and cloudy outside, but the sun finally came out later in the day.
I still don’t feel all that great, but I do feel somewhat better than I did last night when I went to bed. If my ribs didn’t hurt so much from the coughing, I’d feel much better.


  1. Sounds like you have a bad cold ! I hope you feel better soon . Miggs is like that she knows when I get sick before I do or if I am in pain from my Arthritis she senses it all ! lol !

  2. You sound like this bug you have, has really gotten a hold of you. REST. Drink plenty of liquids. Do not worry about cleaning house. And stay in your jammies, in bed. getting better is your number one priority. Hiker will understand. animals sense it when you're not feeling well.
