I’m Ill


I thought I was being unusually lazy yesterday.  Today, even though the body aches are gone, I feel like sleeping and am having freezing/burning up spells.Fairly sure it’s just a cold son has been so kind as to share with me.  But I don’t feel up to a publicity post.  Do it tomorrow?
I’m going to go back to bed.

    Take care of yourself. We’ll survive.

    Get thee well, Sarah.

  3. 😥

    In the immortal words of Count Rugen: “NOT TO FIFTY!” er… whoops. Wrong line.

    “Get some rest. If you haven’t got your health, then you haven’t got anything”

  4. STAY THERE! STAY! Good girl.

  5. A Columbus Day Promo Post, or an Indigenous People’s Day Promo Post?

    Nyah — I cannot see Sarah doing anything with “People’s Day” on this blog.

    Well, maybe a Victims Of Peoples’ Republics Day but that ain’t a thing.


    Rest, relax, improve. Sorry you are ill as well as sick, but then we’re all sick around here.

  6. The cold now making the rounds in socialist and intermittently dark California, apparently starting down in SoCal but now running around up here, is nasty. For me it is only really feeling like it’s gone well into the second week, and dragging on with a cough yet longer than that for the Spousal Violinist.

    If the bug in Colorado is similar, you cannot push through – you need to hydrate, rest and recover.

    • Hmm, get released from post-op confinement, just in time for cold season. At least I have the flu shot, assuming it helps.

      Take it easy, Sarah!

      • AUGH I have to get that, not looking forward to it.

        • I got mine two weeks ago. I didn’t have any major problems this year, so I don’t know if that is good or bad.

          • I’ll second TXRed’s statement this years flu shot seems not to have caused me troubles other than the usual soreness at the injection site. Rumors are that 1) This was a tough season in Australia which usually first sees the flu epidemics due to their opposite seasons, 2) At least here in the Northeast cases are already popping up. So if you’re an older geezer like me (or interact with small children a lot) get the shot ASAP sounds like it may be a rough ride this year.

            • There’s an FNP in a sort-of nearby town (not in the city) who does a bunch of the flu shots in the county. I’d rather go to him to minimize getting the crud while waiting at my regular clinic.

              (The drug store offers shots, but the people who do it are not skilled at minimizing pain…)

              We’ve been going early September lately, shortly after the vaccine is available.

            • This year’s flu shot was easier than last year’s.

  7. you need to hydrate, rest and recover.

    So soak it up, buttercup.

  8. Feel better soonest. Same to the son and new DIL.

  9. When you are ill just rest. Might maybe write a very short post, along the lines “still alive, but not feeling up to writing a real post” from time to time so we know you are still around but leave the rest to us. Well, considering my comments now mostly seem to go to trash until you save them, to those who can comment. I like to read (most…) of them even if I have problems participating. 🙂

  10. I feel you! I spent the weekend at Robinsonfest in New Hampshire and am now waiting for my flight back home at Logan Airport and all I want to be doing is get curled up in my bed and sweat thus crud away. I need to hibernate for a year,I think.

    Hope you get better soon, Sarah!

  11. The Contessa is extremely offended, because she’s got a runny nose.

    So the cutest member of our house is in complete empathy with you.

  12. Get well soon. Don’t worry about us. We probably won’t burn anything down this time…

  13. Hope you feel better.

  14. of all the things to give you…

  15. Rest well, wake refreshed, and may your health be restored.

    It’s funny, “health” is taken as sort of the norm for the vast majority of people. But all of us have our complaints. Injuries. Bad knees. Arthritis. Migraines, eczema, creaky joints, back problems, allergies, and so on. For the most part *we don’t tell anybody about them* unless it’s a particularly bad day. I mean, given how much we could complain, we don’t (with few exceptions, of course).

    Humans are pretty awesome.*

    *:Compared to how we could be. Eh. I’m constantly surprised at how the world consistently fails to live down to my pessimistic expectations doesn’t sound as good. *grin*

  16. Hope you feel better soon, Sarah!

  17. Get well soon and feel better

    Don’t go on the cart, go for a walk. 😮

  19. Get will soon.

  20. I hope you feel better soon.

  21. Being somewhat suspicious, I immediately figured that a better flu shot experience than last year probably was a bad sign for efficacy…hoping I am wrong since I work in schools. They are all walking green snot machines on a regular day, much less following candy holidays, when they double down…
