Best thing about being sick...

I think the best thing about being sick is the first day, you start feeling good again. For me, it's as if my brain has turned on the throttle, I am sharp, clearheaded - my energy level is higher than it was and there's that feeling of HOPE, that I am on the road to recovery.

And I am feeling GREAT this morning. By evening last night, I felt so good I even starting believing that perhaps...just maybe...I could attend the ball. It's too risky, I guess. I can't take 3 days to work up to eating a meal. Plus, what if I get an attack while I am there? It just SUCKS. One more week, was all I needed.

My son, Navy came to visit me the other day after work. That made me feel so good. Just to talk and get one of his famous wonderful hugs.

My father-in-law is attending the ball as well. Together, they went out to buy him some pants and a dress shirt. He uses a motorized wheelchair. He wears a 3xxx size. The only place that has those sizes on short notice is either Walmart or Kmart. They were fortunate. Although he won't be wearing a dinner jacket - I am sure it will be fine. He's 91 and in a wheelchair. No one expects him to dress to the Nines. My step-daughter has a long dress that should be fine.

I do feel left out.

Oh well, I'll just stay home and eat crappy low fiber food.


  1. At least your feeling well enough to be disappointed.

  2. I do hope you are feeling better soon!

  3. I'm glad you are doing much better. When you are very sick, it is easy to think it will never end. It is a wise move to not go to the ball. It would be fun. You could get yourself too tired and get sick again.

  4. I hope your father in law has a delightful time at the ball! So happy to hear you are feeling a bit better!



Comments are good - I admit, sometimes I don't respond back, in time for a dialog. I bad! I will TRY and do better. Thanks for understanding.
