Ailments and Afflictions


I have now been afflicted with some stinking germ or virus that has zapped me of all energy and zest. Every Christmas it happens, one year it was the flu and I missed the entire day. I laid in bed and listened, unable to move, at my giddy family as they hurried out the door onto grandmother's house for the big family gathering. It was so sad to me. I felt so sorry for myself. I am hoping that because I have been struck at an earlier date there will be suffient healing time. I refuse to miss another Christmas. I think I will even suck it up and go and sit in the doctors office. Though that thought scares me, for there in the office are even more germ carriers (possibly with far worse germs that could jump on me). My hope is that the doctor can give me something for all that ails....I am going to find my scuba suit to wear in...think anyone will notice??

Sorry to gripe.....

I chickened out. I called, they put me on hold and as I sat there I couldnt help but think....the place is busy, I am on hold. Germs, germs, germs,.....and I hung up. I am going to try and mend at home.....

Careful at the doctor's office this time of the year and don't sit next to anyone who looks sicker than you. I had a bad experience once.

Thanks Hewy and Jenny Hope! Though I feel abou t the same it isn't any worse. I think I will pull through. I think the docotr was a bad idea. No telling what I could have left with....lipschtinstin disease or something....

(lipschtinstin disease was a name my uncle Freddy used to tell me he had when he felt "puny". I think it was a name he made up. as he was quite a character. If he could have it, I am sure it would've read on his death certificate that was what he died of. Bless him. He was funny)

Hope you are feeling better Jenny Hope! You cannot afford to feel sick with a baby. Hewy, this too I learned....
