"Lord almighty, I feel my temperature rising,
higher and higher
it's burning right through to my soul.
You gonna set me on fire.
My brain is flaming,
I don't know which way to go.............."
Four days can be an eternity when you are this ill. The fever made my lips as peeling paper, thrist is unquenchable and appetite is something we fondly remembered.
Monday morning I wanted to die. No. Really.
We have but 30 something precious days left to see our son before he is shipped off to basic training and he had to stay away from the house, for his own good. This hit us like a brick wall and for Tristan to get flu this close to shipping out, it would cost him the strength he needs for his workouts with his Sgt.
I had no idea how many daytime television commercials focused on medical needs, lawyers wanting you to sue someone because of...well, anything, and insurance for people over 65 that does not require a physical. As we sat, propped on the sofa with out chicken noodle soup and tissues and juice...we watched Bonanza, The Price is Right and the insides of our eyelids.
The dogs thought we had been fired since we never left for work and never played with them. It occured to me to have them kenneled so someone could walk them properly and play with them.
Four days isn't a long time and it's an eternity. Depends on your viewpoint.
I am looking forward to catching up on everything again and eating a solid meal.
Stay healthy folks!!
