Cough - Cough - Cough

Just a short post to tell you I'm alive and that's about all I can say.  Today was supposed to be the big turn-around day.  It did not happen.  I'm still completely wiped out.  I'm at Galveston Island State Park, which I'd never be able to prove; as I've seen nothing but the inside of this rig.

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I still have the aches and pains and a very productive cough that sets off the vice grip on my head and neck.  I'm wasted.  I paid until tomorrow but will ask to stay at least one more day before I try to get at headed in a westerly direction.

I hope all is well with my followers and will get caught up on your activities ASAP.

    1. I'll tell you, I've had some unkind thoughts about people who mix in socially when they should be secluding themselves. This is absolutely the worst case of flu I've ever had.

  2. Have you been to see a doctor? This is taking a little to long.

    1. I checked in with my doc in California. I'm doing all the right stuff and should expect changes for the better within the next three days. She says it's two weeks wit treatment and 14 days without!

  3. Ms. Nurse, do you think it's about time to see a Dr.? You are still in our Prayers.

    1. Thanks Betty. See above about seeing a doctor. I'm conscientious about the possibility of a super infection (bacterial) that could be treated with antibiotics - as of now I'm not experiencing no bacterial infection symptoms. So I'm just waiting (impatiently) and coughing!

  4. It is said that nurses are the worst patients! I recommend a few shots of Tequila, that will scare this bug right out of you.

  6. Speedy recovery Mary-Pat. You got a nasty bug and I hope that you are eating well to get your strength back.
    I'm not sick but haven't done zip on my blog lately. The only thing that are new is a new baby buul calf last night and a third snow storm in a week. Everyone is sick of snow...
    Hugs,

    1. How exciting - a baby bull. Will you keep it or sell it?

  8. oh, I see! well? you're a bit farther West ... I do like Galveston and lots to see there... Wish you were well enough to enjoy it. dang!

    And, yeah... the flu is the flu and it's going to do its thing.... for sure. I agree with the Tequila.. little lime in the coconut...

    and depending upon which route you're going to take... I wouldn't be heading across all that way feeling bad ... nine days just to get out of Texas... ;)

    1. At this point nothing fancy in the plan, just move - at least a little. It'll just mean I'll have to come bak again (three times in a year!) to see all I'm missing this time around. I'm hoping to at least get to see Marfa, as that's been on my Texas Bucket List since I saw the 60 Minutes bit on the town over a year ago.

  9. We agree with Peter and Kevin....tequila is the answer. Almost as handy around the house/rv as duct tape!!! Get well friend!!!
