The Plague

My regularly schedule life has ground to a total halt while I attempt to survive the plage, aka, this horrible virus that's going around.  Hailey had it first, then her parents.... now me and poor Michael developed it this morning.

Since about 2 am last night, I've been living on the commode, holding a bucket so I can throw up at the same time.  That was pretty much constant until about 2 pm this afternoon.

Now, it's severe wooziness, fever, headache, weak as a half dead kitten.  I'm finally being able to sip some ginger ale and try to turn around the dehydration and chicken soup is sort of sounding ok right now - but not so ok I want to stand up to fix it.

So... no weekly menu right now, because the thought of food generates very bad chain reactions, and while i had my cross stitch start ready to go today, I'm not going anywhere near it with their highly contagious germs of death.

It seems to move pretty quick - one day of seriously wondering if you're dying, and a couple days of recovery.  I'll be back when I can stay away more than ten minutes at a time.


  1. I hope you feel better soon! My house had the exact same thing a few weeks ago. It was 12 hours sitting in the bathroom, with a bucket in arms. Then for 2 days we felt very run down and tired. It left us pretty quickly!!

  2. I hope you feel better soon. I am dealing with sinus/allergy crap. AND>>>I sabotaged my own blog! HA!

    Do you have the book..."Drawing down the moon"?
    Please let me know

    Thanks, Susan

  3. Hi Lynda

    Being sick is definitely not a good way to start the new year!
    I hope you feel a lot better soon.

    Thank you for following my blog :)

    Happy Stitching

  4. So sorry! Hope you feel better NOW!

  5. :) thanks for the good wishes, all! Against all my predictions yesterday, I think I'll live. Boy but this thing is going around!

    Susan - yikes to your sidebar woes! I do have DDTM, yes, though it's been a long while since I read it!
