Feeling a Bit Better

Hi everyone!

Wow, I feel like I have been in a cave for the past month. Well, okay, it was a week and a half but, for me that is a month! Especially at this time of the year. I have no idea how I caught whatever I had. There was no warning what so ever. Monday morning I got up, came down stairs, made coffee, started reading my email and the next thing I know I am back upstairs in bed and remember little to nothing for the following 72 hours.

During those 72 hours, I didn't leave the bed, I didn't eat a thing and every part of me was in pain as if I had been in some kind of horrific fight. I had a bad fever that finally broke Thursday morning.

Saturday I was finally able to go downstairs for awhile. Each day I am getting a little bit more strength. Today I am going to attempt to go out. I am still very weak but, I have somethings I need to get done. And for the first time I can ever remember, I am going to have Troy chauffeur me around. I don't feel that my reflexes are where they need to be yet.

We made a big decision and decided to postpone our International Christmas Dinner until New Year's Eve. I want to be able to enjoy it and as it stands, I am going to be exhausted from our family Christmas Eve party and then Christmas morning. This way, I will have another week to get rested up and feeling better.

Although I didn't get a bunch of the stuff I wanted to get done, I am so happy that I was prepared prior to getting sick. All of my shopping was basically done and all the presents were wrapped. Most of the decorating I was going to do, was done. I had already gotten the Princess' Christmas dress, tights and shoes (I know that doesn't sound important but, to me it is).

Thank you all for the well wishes! You have no idea how much that meant to me. Troy would read me the comments each day. Today is the first day I have been able to spend a little time online. Everytime I have tried, the screen just made me dizzy. Let me apologize now if this post is kind of spacey. LOL I still seem to be having a hard time pulling together my thoughts and writing a post.

Now I want to take a moment to tell you all......

I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!!

  13. Querida Diann
    O Natal pode e deve ser comemorado com alegria. Mas com alegria na presença do Senhor, Infelismente em muitas das alegrianatalinas, Jesus é o grande ausente.Espero que Jesus esteja presente na festa de Natal de sus vida e de sua familia.
