what are you doing?

I went to the doctor on Friday and I  found out I’m sicker than I thought. I knew I had the flu but thought I’d be right as rain in a couple of days. Well Friday was more than a couple of days past when I first felt ill and I definitely was not right as rain.

It took a dear friend to call and tell me to haul my sorry self into the doctor. Okay she was convinced I had H1N1 and would die at any moment. I called. I told them I was on upswing but did he want to see me? Of course he did. Not because he get so much money out of us, nor because he has a sick desire to cause us pain, but he really likes us.

I lost 2.5 pounds between Tuesday and Friday afternoon. I do not have H1N1. I do have Influenza Type A. Lovely. I was given a prescription for Tamilfu and bed rest for my cure.

Yes, bed rest. I have to be in bed, on the couch or recliner for a week. A whole week.  I am managing my time okay. I have finally managed to get caught up on my bejeweled blitz game, my solitare game, my reading and my staring dumbly out the window.  I also contacted a couple of people to arrange for meals. For my family. I can’t exactly cook while in bed.

Today the phone rang and it was the girl bringing tonight’s fair.  I told her of course it was fine that she bring it a little early. When she rang the doorbell 30 minutes  later, I hobbled to the door. (as only one who has been in bed 7 days already and staring at at least 3-4 more days can hobble.) The look on her face was priceless.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?  Aren’t you supposed to be on bed rest?”

“Uhm, I live here and yes I am on bed rest but you rang the doorbell. I had to answer the door.”

I am sure she expected Dear Man to answer at least that is what I’m hoping she was expecting.

  1. hope you get well soon, and don’t beat my bejeweled blitz score while bed-resting! 😉 Let me know if you have a night where you don’t have a meal coming, maybe I can bring one. hugs
