So remember how I wrote about this being the ‘perfect Christmas’? Well, I had a feeling I was jinxing myself and I sure did. I had been dealing with a cough for a couple of weeks but then on Monday I really started to feel poorly. Enough so that I went to the doctor just in case it was an infection. Turns out it was a virus. No big surprise.
I was hoping it would just be a little thing but Tuesday (Christmas Eve) I wasn’t feeling great but I pushed through the day. My throat hurt and I just didn’t feel good. I got through the day and then stumbled home and crashed sleeping till 10 am. I felt pretty rotten but I went up to where my parents are staying and got my presents but I kept falling asleep (a bad sign. I never take naps unless I’m sick) and after about 12:30 I felt so bad I had to go home and spent the rest of Christmas Day in bed.
Then yesterday and today came with more time in bed and I still feel very rotten. I can’t talk, my throat hurts and I just feel awful. Thank you to my home teachers who gave me a blessing this morning and my friend Tanya who brought me dinner.
I hope this weekend I am able to improve. We will see. At least I have some time off work to heal.
Send out a prayer my way. Thanks. Thanks to my family for coming out here. I am soooo grateful to not be traveling with this sickness.
