And the flu continues

Well it has been a week for me with the flu and I am staring to feel human again. No more laying in bed sick. But I sure can't do much before being exhausted. Made the bed and was out of breath. Bill is a couple of days behind me, so he is still feeling kind of crappy. Both of us feel like wet noodles, just floppy. Guess it takes a while to recover. Heard on the news this morning that 3 people died of the flu here in Clark County just this last week. So guess we are doing well to start recovering.
Today is a sports watching day - the only thing we have the energy for. both soccer and NASCAR.
I started writing this yesterday - didn't get very far.  I had a good night last night woke up rested but it is only 8:30 and all I've done is watch some TV and cleaned out the refrigerator and I'm pooped. Bill got up before me and is already back in bed.
Weather has been in the high 90's for several days now so wouldn't have been out and about much anyway. Cooling down tomorrow to the 70's with the possibility of rain. That would be nice.
All our plants have recovered nicely from winter, most of them are blooming.
Oh yeh, we did go to our regular doctor during the week. Appointments were scheduled since last fall. Over the winter with the surgery etc Bill lost 24 pounds. Which is good as he was a lot overweight. Just not a diet plan I would recommend. Me, not so lucky, but at least I didn't gain.
I had just started walking again when this flu hit.
So that's it for now. Just wanted to let everyone know we're still around and kicking.

Sounds awful. Makes me want to not socialize with anyone. Also, isn't this late for flu season? Hope you both feel better soon.

Carol and Bill said...

flu season is running very late this year. have no idea where I caught it - only place I can think of is grocery shopping.

Carol and Bill said...

We both seem much better today. I went out and walked around the block and he cookedd breakfast. Both still tire easily though.

Carol and Bill said...

Sure don't want it again. Never realized how miserable it made you feel.

I have never had the flu either. Don't think I want to give it a try. Hope that you are both feeling a bit better today.
