Smacked Around...

I have been out of pocket the last few days, and despite what you are getting ready say, it was not because of busyness!! I have actually been SICK! And I mean the smacked around kind of sick.

Every once in awhile I'll catch a cold or something like that, but I haven't been "sick" in I can't remember how long. I haven't even been to the doctor (knock on wood!) in over five years!

But Friday I started to feel very crazy in the throat and by Saturday morning I couldn't swallow or take any liquids - the result? Strep throat. Or at least that's what they think. I had to go the emergency room and they said they don't test adults anymore for strep (kind of strange I thought, but not complaining - I hate that swab thingy!). So...they loaded me full of drugs (a big honkin' antibiotic, steroids and Tylenol 3) and home I went.

Today? Feeling a bit better, although it still feels like someone scrubbed my throat with some sandpaper. A bit tired but no worse for the wear. I should be good as new in the next few days or so. I'll be glad to get back to "normal" - but maybe a bit slower paced?

Several exciting announcements coming up...stay tuned!

Hope you get to feeling better soon. Thanks again for letting me share some time with you and your family on Friday. I am looking to seeing you back to "normal".

Thanks for riding along - sorry I wasn't much for conversation that night! :)

Conversation is not always needed for communication. Some times just being around someone is enough.

As Jo said ....."just being around someone is enough".....and, good friend, we are just not around each other enough any more! Sure hope you are recovering because I can't really remember when you have been "laid low" from an illness......just can't remember a time...and I have known much longer than most from this area.
Get Well!!!
