I had a lot of plans for last week.
All of them got changed.
First, my wife got sick.
While inconvenient for me, and uncomfortable for her, I was still able to do much of what I had been planning. The worst part is she had already used up her sick days due to a fall at work the left her unable to walk straight for several days. While she has some spare vacation and personal days, she was trying to save them.
Then, I got sick.
A terrible headache and leg cramps kept me awake but stuck in bed for the last half of the week. When I did fall asleep, I usually woke up within an hour so sweaty, I needed to change clothes. I have been going through 3-4 changes of clothes every night since last Tuesday. Plus an occasional change during the day. I have been pretty much stuck on my back in bed the whole time.
So, I have not gotten anything I wanted to do this month started yet.
In fact, today is the first day I have even turned on my computer since last Wednesday. I have not checked email, voicemail, or done much else in all this time. I am trying to get that straightened out first. At least, my email is a bit better than it used to be since I cleared out some of the lists.
So, I am off to a slow start. I’m still weak, but at least I feel much better. Also, my wife didn’t say "You look terrible!" to me today. That is what she told me yesterday. That is not something that instills confidence in your own health.
The worst part?
It looks like I missed a beautiful weekend. All the news programs were saying how nice the weather was all weekend. I did not get to enjoy it.
At least my wife and I did not have the same thing. I would hate for her to have whatever I did.
