June 14 2014

We had a set back, we both got the FLU.  Extreme sore throats, temperatures and body aches like you wouldn’t believe on top of the crud we already had…it was rough. 

JoLynn from down the road brought us a wonderful hotdish full of vegetables, all I want to eat is vegetables and potatoes…potatoes anyway I can get them.

Last night I could finally sit upright without being dizzy.  Far Guy drug himself to the Doctor yesterday, the Doctor said “There is nothing else I can do for you, getting better will take time, you may catch every bug out there until your immune system recovers.”

Chance is patient, JoLynn played ball with him one afternoon.  Most of the time he lays quietly waiting for us to get better.

  4. Funny when I get sick there is a food that is all I want. I think potatoes have done the trick for me now and then, too. I keep hoping one day it will all be back to normal at your place, Connie. Fingers crossed it's gonna be soon. Thanks for keeping me updated, even when you're feeling crummy. :-)

  5. Oh my goodness!!!! I am thankful you still have an appetite and are getting good foods to help you regain your strength. We blog friends would certainly be there to help with meals if we lived closer. So glad that JoLynn brought you tasty stuff. I admire that you had even a smidgen of energy to update us on your status. We will look forward to the day when life is normal for you again. Until then, I hope you both have pleasant dreams while you rest.

  6. I think it's dangerous to go to the hospital now a days. There's more bugs there! I'm so sorry you guys are "laid low"....especially both at the same time...it's awful. I have no immune system and have 3 autoimmune diseases to thank for it! But insurance insists I see my doctor every 6 months and go to the hospital for lab work......dummies! I was told when I got these diseases to stay away from sick people, stay away from hospitals and doctor's waiting rooms as much as possible. I've been on Enbrel since 1994 so do I really need to see the doctor every 6 months? Rules and regulations will be the death of all of us. I do everything I can to stay healthy but the doctors and insurance don't! LOL! Anyway, try to stay out of hospitals...they're dangerous places nowadays and I'm sure that's where you picked up your second illness. The last time I went in they wanted me to stay in a hotel after my eye surgery (Graves disease)...what does that tell you?
    I hope you recover soon and I'm so sorry you've had to go through this ordeal. Prayers ongoing!

  11. How horrible; I am so sorry. I hope you begin to recover soon.

  12. Oh my gosh this is not good. Your systems are really worn down. I hope this gets to turning around soon. I didn't return to the doctor as my insurance doesn't exist but I am getting more non doctors telling me that I had lyme disease. I did have a tick bite but it was a freak thing where I got the tick from some lumber. I was thankful that the high powered antibiotic that also gave me hallucinations did shut it down. I may go back if it lingers much longer.

  14. You guys really got walloped with all this sickness. Figures -- you retire, have all that freedom, then get the mother of all illnesses. Please get well, soon!

  15. HI guys:
    This is absolutely awful! I think the doctor is right about what you have to do and that is get a lot of sleep and rest and eat good food as you can handle. I am so glad that you are getting medical attention. We all are so concerned about both of you and I am sure Chance is puzzled at the change in activity around his home.
    We hope you can keep us posted on how things are going or maybe Jen can help with that. Please drag yourselves to the doctor as much as needed!
