Brothers Campfire Thank You Friends!

Hello Friends,

I was shocked at all the support I received from the WordPress community while sick. Thank you!

I am about 50 percent and I think I’m gonna make it!

I’ll be on my way then

I am also thankful for my work supervisor being so understanding about my illness.Β This is what my old boss would have looked like.

Apparently something icky is going around. Sore throat and ear pain, fever and congestion. Typically, I have a resting heart rate in the low 70s but it has been as high as 133 just laying down. 

I have not eaten since the ramen noodle post because I am not a fan of vomiting. I feel like I drank a pint of Screaming Peaches from my story. I have all the symptoms. 

Thank you again for the support my friends! You are beautiful people!

      Thank you Meenawalia! I appreciate the prayer and the advice! As coffee drinker, moving to Lemon Ginger tea was tough, but proved beneficial. I am warming up some casserole right now for energy. I think I can hold it down.

    Glad to hear you are moving in the right direction, perhaps have your doc check out the sore throat to ensure you don’t have strep….if untreated strep has its own issues.

        Dammbit…the link isn’t working on my phone. I’ll try on my computer later cause right now my brain is singing “spicy is the highlight of my life” to the tune of “you are the sunshine of my life” and I think that’s funny.

    I think it is a time to see a doctor now. Strep throat or Flu? Heart rate possible due to fever. Don’t ignore it specially when you are not able to eat or drink. Risk of dehydration. Take good care of yourself.

    1. The Storyteller says:

      Thank you Sara! I have eaten 3 small meals and about 2 gallons of electrolyte drinks. My throat is a little sore. I believe I am getting better!
      It is very sweet of ypu to check up on me. I appreciate it!
