Hey Y'all....  It's ME..... Shug!   For those of you who have noticed that I've been away from blog land....let me assure you it wasn't planned.    I did manage to throw my Valentines post together, but it was barely.

I do want to tell you that back to back "Bugs" are not anything I would want any of you to experience!  Two weekends ago.. I came down with the stomach bug!  Lots of up-Chucking and all of the unpleasant stuff that comes along with this virus!  I was sick for about 4 days and when all the really bad stuff was gone, I honestly felt absolutely terrible.   I was dehydrated and all of my electrolytes were all out of sorts.   On Thursday of that week.. I was kinda getting back to my old self.

I took a small "girls day out" trip with my friends on that Friday.  I actually felt good!   I really did!

On Sat, I started feeling bad and then here came bug number 2.    I couldn't believe it.   I had fever, chills, aches, pains... And the chest congestion had set in.  By Monday morning of this week... I was one sick lady!!!    Dehydration again... Pneumonia setting in... Headache...

Sam took me to the Dr.  On Monday morning and I got a huge shot of antibiotic, medicine for the nebulizer, and a good cough syrup.   Had a chest X-Ray done,  flu test, and blood work.   Today... I feel a good bit better, but had to call the Dr. back because I still have a lot of wheezing!   Now, I get to take steroids for about 7 days!  

I can tell you, my body is exhausted.    My sweet Sam, now has the crud.  

I guess it's that time of the year...(for sickness)... But I sure am ready for all of this to get out of here.  

So... This is the reason... I've been gone!     Prayers please for Sam and I both.

That is not a fun time. I pray that you will both feel better real soon.

Take care, Shug! Get well soon!

Hi Shug!

Oh my goodness . . . you did have the double-crud!! I'm so glad you are on the mend, and will certainly keep you and Sam in my prayers!

It has gone through our house too. Bob had it, then I got it, and then my poor mother got it, (that was not good). They have even had some schools in our area closed because of it!

get well soon sweet friend!

I am glad that you are now on the road to recovery after going through a terrible time because of the stomach bug, etc. Pray for Sam and you for complete healing. Take care and get well soon!

Hang in there and get well...lots of liquids and take your meds as directed until they are gone. At least that is what my mother would say.

Bless your heart. I am SO sorry... Do you take lots of vitamins/nutrients/supplements? I started doing that about 2010 or so ----and believe it or not, neither George nor I have been sick with the crud (flu-type stuff, colds, stomach viruses, etc.) for MANY years... The last time I had a flu type illness was about 2009... Can you believe it?

One thing which helps me is to take a Vit. C -1000 pill every single day... BUT--I also take lots of other 'good things' to help keep me healthy.... And of course, as you know, we eat VERY healthy these days and get exercise...

BUT, I am at t time in my life when there aren't any kids around much.. SO---we don't get exposed like you do...

Just my thoughts...

Love you bunches but hate to see you sick SO much...
Hugs and Prayers,
