Doze... Sleep... Repeat...

If you've read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, you'll know that I've been sick.

After the funeral on Saturday, of my real estate partner/friend C's daughter J, I had an hour or two (2) of feeling okay, once again.  Then, it hit me like a ton of bricks!

Not only could I hardly breathe, but I suffered with headache.  Not to mention sore ears, nose and throat.  Even my lungs hurt.  And, it felt like every muscle and joint in my body hurt from head to toe. 

Aside from the pain, I was very tired.  In fact, I could hardly keep my eyes open.  While seated in my recliner chair, I didn't see much of anything being viewed on the television.

Eventually, I awoke enough to go take a nap in bed.  After a couple hours, I awoke and once again returned to my livingroom. 

Some might ask why I did this and didn't just stay in bed.  Well, the fact is, if I lay down too long, my spine not only hurts, but it is difficult to even walk, so I made sure I got myself up, walked around my home for a short time, before returning to my comfy livingroom.

By the time bedtime came, I felt like I had already had a night's sleep!  Even so, I once again climbed between my sheets and literally passed out.

Believe it or not, I didn't set my alarm clock.  I knew when I was about to close my eyes, that there was no way I was going to push myself to get up in the morning, if I didn't feel good.

Even so, I did awake early enough for church and got up.  I wasn't feeling any better.  In fact, I felt even worse, if it could possibly be the case.  Of course, any time a person has fever, it's never nice.

You know I must be sick, when I do not go worship my God!  Throughout Sunday, all I did was relax, doze and sleep. 

However, I did make sure I took sinus/cold medication to help me breathe. 

It took me a while to locate it, because I rarely use anything of this sort.  But one of my daughter's had needed this medication a while ago, so I had bought some, just in case she or the rest of my family needed some on short notice. 

Although it had been purchased in case my family needed it, I was grateful I had it on hand.  To be sure, it helped me.

For this, I am grateful!  Thank You, Jesus!

Until next time...
