I Didn't Die!

My goodness, I feel like I’ve been in another world for the past few days and am just now beginning to wake up to reality again. I was diagnosed with Acute Bronchitis and Influenza on Wed. By Thursday, I begged my husband to stay home and care for our daughter because I couldn’t. I was too sick.  The doctor gave me a very strong antibiotic because he was worried about pneumonia and because I’m allergic to penicillin, they had to use one that has a lot of not-so-fun side effects which made me even sicker.So, I’ve been living in my bed, huddled over a humidifier, too week and miserable to sit down at my computer, or read or even watch T.V.  
This evening, I feel much better thanks to the antibiotics, but my body is very weak and I’m still congested. I don’t mind though, because I’m better and I didn’t die!
I missed you guys terribly and just now sat down and read all your posts from the last week. I loved them and my heart goes out to the others who are sick too. Sickness is horrible!
I missed my new friends at Fox and Hound too. I really love working there and can’t wait to be well enough to return.
I really appreciate all your kind comments on my sick post. I read them just now and you guys are just wonderful and thoughtful and caring and…well…I’m emotional because of all this sickness, but I’m just so grateful to all of you for your kind encouraging words. They mean a lot to me and when I’m better, I’ll respond to each one.
That’s all for now, I must go lie down again, but I wanted you to know I appreciate all of you and reading your posts before I wrote mine made me feel so much better it’s not even funny. I feel like I got to reach out and touch all of your lives for a moment and that somehow, by sharing those little bits of your days, you breathed new healing energy into mine.
Yea. I get waaaaaay sappy when I’m sick. It’s disgusting!
