Recovery

 I am recovering slowly.  We managed to pick up the groceries and get gas for the car...gas is up another 5 cents a gallon this week.  We disinfected groceries, had lunch and I crashed for most of the afternoon. 

Far Guy woke me up when my other baby brother showed up with three of his grands...Teddy, Vivian and Erwin...the older ones are excited about going to visit Aunt Katie...and no Vivian does not was to come live with us forever and ever.  Erwin just smiles and flirts with his eyes.   Fun to see them!  Their Grandpa had them all safely belted in the side by side so we just talked to them through the door. 

I am still very tired bordering on exhaustion and the headache comes and goes as do the hot flashes.  My arm is not as sore as it was but I still ice it when I lay down.  Aleve was the recommendation from the Nurses that were giving vaccinations. 

It is still better than getting covid being on a vent and possible death. 

For the next few days I don't have much planned...some laundry and maybe I will clean the bathroom...when my body says rest...I will.

  1. I hope you improve over the weekend. I know it was tough to pick up the groceries as bad as you feel. Glad you had some sweet visitors. That is a lovely pic of your Big Island visit,

  4. That sounds good, I know hubby was tired and it took a few days for him to feel slightly normal. Whatever that is.
    I hope to become eligible here in the next month or so.
    I won't vary most of my precautions, but I may start doing CrossFit again at the gym again. The coach is very good about cleaning stuff and in the warm months all big bay doors are open for good ventilation.

  8. Glad you are a little better. We had to drive grandchildren for visitation last night across 3 towns. Gas was 2.69 in our town, 2.63 in the next town, 2.81 in the next town and then 2.53 at our destination. It was a 45 minute drive from end to end.

  10. Bet that Hawaii trip feels like a lifetime ago. Sounds like you are on the mend. My first shot is this afternoon and I'm really hoping for not much more than a sore arm.

  13. Yes.... rest, rest, rest, Connie! Do what you can when you feel like it and for the remaining time, rest. As my mama used to say "Lay on the couch & watch the rest of the world go by". I get my second vaccine in 10 days or so. We'll see how I do. ~Andrea xoxo

  17. I'm glad to hear you are listening to your body and resting! I was thinking of you all day yesterday, knowing it was your day out. The last thing I want to do when I feel bad is deal with groceries. It's nice that you saw your brother, nephews and niece. Seeing children is a happy thing! Rest and feel better!

  25. I've been binge watching second dose reactions to the 2nd Pfizer shot so I'll know what to expect for us. So far most of them say under 55 has much more severe reactions than the over 55 crowd. I sure hope that's true. Dennis gets his next shot on Monday. I've been praying for you Connie and I'm glad you're listening to your body and that you are getting the rest you need.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  28. I bet you're glad you took that trip to Hawaii when you did! Sorry you are having that reaction. My arm didn't bother me as much but the exhaustion and the headache and chills. Times like that I am so glad I am retired!
