Still Sick, but so Happy
Okay, so we are going on another week of this stupid virus. I can't talk, much to the delight of my family. It seems they think I talk too much, I can't imagine why. I suppose I know where my Kaitlyn got it from...her Mommie. I failed to mention the other day that even though I was sick and feel like crap, I have lost 11 pounds since October. Can I be happy for at least one thing? Heck yeah!!! I haven't slept well for about four days now, every time I lay down I start coughing and no amount of Nyquil is doing the trick. UGH!! I just want to be better. The doctor told me on Friday, "No Pepsi!! Drink lots of water to stay hydrated even if you don't eat." Don't eat you say? Right on, like I can swallow anything any way. Water? Surely you jest!! Kaitlyn thought that that was a great idea, if she sees me with a Pepsi she says, "Mom, NO PEPSI!! How can you get better if you don't drink water or juice. At least mix some orange juice in that glass." Okay, so I love to drink orange juice and Diet Pepsi mixed together. It might sound gross but it is so good. Besides, I can't drink straight orange juice, it's too strong and if I drink too much I break out in hives. Can you imagine, can't talk, coughing up a lung AND have hives? I don't think so. Any way, I think I'll go take a nap. Forget it, that couch is callin' my name!!
