28 posts in this topic

Dear Jeannie,

 

I hope you are feeling much better soon. I know how rotten you can feel when you get a viral infection on top of everything else. take care of yourself and keep snuggled up warm and calm.

Love and hugs,

:emoticon-hug:

Thanks for all the good wishes! You are all correct in thinking the viral infection is what put me in the dumps - you kind of get used to all the other stuff, don't you? I've had a few sniffles over the last few years, but this thing is the pits, if I am still infectious I would probably classify as a weapon of mass destruction. :lol: There have been a few laughs though. My youngest border collie is very imitative. When I start coughing, she starts barking. When I start croaking, trying to talk, she takes over - again with the barking. Such a big help!

 

Spoon wind chimes - I love it! I'm definitely going to give it a try. In the meantime, I'm putting them on deposit in the ISN bank for anyone who also needs a loan.

 

You can take a rain check, but I'm sending everyone hugs,

Hiya my favourite "war horse". I along with all of the "family" send warm thoughts and love to you! :happy-day:

 

Thankfully, our bad sub-zero temperatures have abated in the UK. My virus that began in September 2010 is just and I say that loosely is just about gone but my goodness, its taken a hefty toll on me. My chest is still a bit chesty in the morning, and my gut and chest took it badly. I still having constant bouts of oral thrush and bowel disturbances to boot!!!

 

I guess we have to have rough times...but why oh why do they hang about so long eh? :emoticon-bang-head: :crying:

I've sent you some of my pretty spoons to hang on your windchime so when the winter sun shines, the light they reflect will shine warm light on your face and make you smile to know you are not alone..ever. :VeryHappy:

:flowers:

get well soon

Lynn

Dear Jeannie,

 

Hate to hear all that you are going through... one thing that struck me, though. Your spoons are tarnished, so that means they are silver! And where there is silver... there is a lining :)

 

My spoons are plastic and I broke all of them this week. Sunday was 13 hours of competition dance for my little one, Monday had to admit my eldest daughter to the hospital for 9 days vomiting, dehydration and diagnosis was Abdominal Migraine. We finally got home Wednesday and on Thursday, I was unable to get out of bed. Stress is a monster for me. This morning I woke up with terrible chest congestion. Grabbing my stethoscope out to listen to what I sound like before I dart off to the doctor.

 

I am thinking of you and hoping that you get much reprieve from your symptoms. I will drink a margarita in your honour (after I take an omeprazole!). Warm hugs to you xxx

Hi All,

 

I'm still sounding like a colony of seals when the fishing boat pulls up to the dock (bark, bark, croak, croak), but I don't feel nearly as bad as I did. I found the silver polish, so the spoons are going to get shined up this evening while we watch the telly. (The silver lining was that my appetite left and I'm making progress with the diet!)

 

Tawanda, Abdominal Migraine sounds like the absolute pits! Poor baby, I hope she is lots better. And you are right about stress being really awful for us. I had a really stressful week about the middle of December and paid for it with interest. I think that might have been what lowered my resistance to the point where the virus could work its wicked way.

 

Warm hugs,

Jeannie, new shiny stainless steel spoons are on the way. Hopefully, they will hold you over while you recover. Happy to hear that you are polishing up some of yours. I hope that doesn't use up even more spoons. Get well soon my friend.


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Well I just read your post; for a few days I was out of the computer trying to recoup some of those spoons, so now I can give you a few. Listen, I love margaritas, so if you need company let me know :lol:

Hope you feel better.

 

Hugs Patty

Jeannie,

 

I have unfortunately also been out of action for a couple of weeks so missed your initial post - so a bit belated but I really hope you are feeling so very much better.

 

My mum gave me a silver spoon wind chime as a gift - I love its sound - haven't noticed them working as 'spare spoons' yet but who knows!

 

Tawanda - I had abdominal migraine from the age of 4 - stress of school started it and it occurred regularly on a Sunday evening - triggered nerves for return to school on a Monday. No great comfort to you or your daughter at the moment but I did eventually grow out of it - hope you both get some help with that problem - you both can do without repeated episodes.

 

Having been out of action for a week and just returning to the 'real' world my father had a heart attack - he is doing fine but it really knocked me for six. Stress really is a big issue for us isn't it. However on a much more positive note (I am trying) our weather in the South West of the UK is certainly improving - small bulbs are starting to sprout, so hopefully this will give us all a lift that we appear to be needing.

 

I wish everyone well.

 

Regards,

 

Jane

Sometime I wish there was just a 'like' button on some posts!

I'm up for a margarita party.

 

 

Jeannie, I hope you're feeling better and better each day!

I have the worst time recovering from colds/flu's.

 

Stay toasty warm and get some furry slippers (aka doggy bellies)

WOW - I missed this thread also. Shame on me. I'm so sorry to read about everything you are going through Darlin! This is such an up and down disease and those down years act like a vacuum and suck everything out of us. But from my experience, bad years are soon followed by better years and maybe even a "good" so I'll keep my fingers crossed that now that you've had that bad year, that 2011 is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you find that magic pill and that you begin to feel better both physically and emotionally.

 

Lots and lots of hugs your way.
