Rudolph The Red Nose !!
This last week has not been the greatest for the wife went down with the flu! It really took almost five days for her to get on top of it, but now she seems to have turned the corner. Home made chicken soup really works wonders!
Things weren’t that hunky dory for yours truly either. I really had to try and be especially careful because of my COPD. In addition because of the risk of the germ factor, I had to miss rehab this week too. I dosed myself up with cold FX to try to forestall the now inevitable. Although it’s pretty difficult when you are together in a small apt’ and sleep in the same bed, even though we put distance between ourselves even there!
Well it seems like all those precautions were totally wasted! Today it is my turn and down I came with a bang! I have been trying to catch up to my nose ever since, it runs so fast!
You can imagine that in addition to all the misery that you go through with the flu; I have to have this cannula stuck in my nose to deliver the oxygen that I need. Boy, things can sure get tricky.
A bonus we discovered also from this, the bathroom is not the only place you use toilet paper!! It is softer and easily transported around with you, besides “Royale” make nice ornaments scattered around the apartment!
Ah Well! If all goes well five days to go and I get to miss rehab again. ;((
