I woke up today with a marked difference in the pressure in my sinuses, I CAN BREATHE!!!! Halle-freakin-lujah. Last night desperation took over and I used vicks vapo-rub (thats right, it's not just for kids) and I went and got treated like a delinquent to buy a box of real sudafed (sp?) so, apart from the bleeding holes left by the damned flu swab, my nose is now clear.
I counted my calories for Thursday, I was under 800, and yesterday around 1100. I"ve been chugging fluids and slurping soup to keep my throat pain down to a dull roar, so there hasn't been much room for food. Today I had a pancake and a piece of cheese pizza, And I'm done for the day, I wasn't even hungry for those things but knew I needed something in my stomach to help with the meds I'm taking. In addition to the antibiotics and decongestant, I'm taking either acetaminophen or ibuprofen every four hours, because my ribs and sides are in agony.
So today I felt human and as I walked through my house without the sick foggy glaze over my eyes I realized that the house of a sick mommy becomes a stupid mess, in a hurry. I took a shower and did some dishes, and was sitting down watching TV when both of my munches came in to show me that they were "hot"...sickly munches, again?...-awesome-
I tried my hand at making granola bars, they are a bit too gooey because I forgot to add the flour and I put the hot butter on top of the chocolate chips, but oh well, you live you learn. Gooey or not, they taste pretty amazing.
Thanks for all your kind words and thoughts, It's nice to know you all were thinking of me.
