I'm Alive!

I feel like dancing....Thank you God for antibiotics! I feel alive again. I have been under the weather fighting an upper respiratory infection/sinus infection/earache for 2 awful weeks. I missed 3 days of work. I went to the doctor for my blood pressure when I first started getting sick, but she didn't give me anything and told me to get cold medicine for it. Well, after finishing the first box of cold pills and drinking gallons of hot green tea & honey & lemon & halls cough drops & looking like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, I figured this is for the birds...I am ready to fist fight this thing! I called my doctor and she finally phoned in an antibiotic and decongestant and low and behold, after the first dose, I felt like I was coming alive again. It's a great day to be alive. I just might try out for Dancing with the Stars!

That is exactly how it went for me! I hope you get to feeling much, much better soon. I'm on the other side of it, and I know that feeling when you realize you can breathe and the pain is easing up. It's the most marvelous feeling.

Love that photo. I'm glad you're feeling better! As a teacher, I know how miserable being sick can be... I get just about every germ there is!

I'm sorry I didn't know you were so miserable. Only 3 days off? You must be Wonder Woman! Glad you're recovering, now don't over-do and get a relapse.

I am so very happy that you finally have some relief! It is so discouraging to feel so sick, and to KNOW that a good dose of antibiotics can kick some butt! Glad it's happening now... and STAY WARM AND DRY AND RESTED!! You have grandbabies to hold!!
