#Update – Hangin’ in There but Movin’ Slow

Thanks so much to everyone who has sent me wishes for a speedy recovery. Unfortunately, while I’m not seriously ill, this cold is taking its own sweet time about moving on.Β 

Because I’m in a double-high risk group for you-know-what, I’m paying very close attention to the things I need to watch out for. I do not have a single one of the more worrisome symptoms, and I’m 99% sure I caught this bug from Mark. The good news is, he has pretty much completely recovered. The bad news is, it took about 9 days for him to feel he was totally back to normal. I seem to be following the same pattern, only about 3 days after him, which makes sense, given that he caught it first and gave it to me. (He’s so thoughtful that way. πŸ˜€ )Β 

I have a regular appointment coming up soon with my family physician, but I will call to talk to her sooner if there is any worsening of my condition. So far, I’ve only seen improvement, slow though it might be. For instance, the low-grade, off and on fever seems to be gone now, knock wood, and I have had no chest congestion at all. Mine has all been sinus related, which probably indicates that my allergies kicked in, right alongside this cold.Β 


I am self-quarantined for now, because a) nobody wants to catch a cold or mild flu from me, either, and b) my resistance is likely low, and I do not want to expose myself to any other problems. Again, there’s no indication that I have anything more serious than a common cold/allergy combo, but I am moving at a snail’s pace, for sure.

Please take care of yourselves! Stay informed on what you need to do to remain well, but don’t give into the mass hysteria. This, too, shall pass! In the meantime, I’m going to remain on R&R a bit longer, until my energy level picks up again, but I will continue to update you every couple of days until I’m back.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled program!

    • Thanks, Joan, and it’s just not worth chancing me spreading my cold or whatever, or catching something worse. I’ll stay here as long as I need to. πŸ™‚ You take care, too! πŸ™‚ ❀


  2. It’s best you stay indoors and to ensure you don’t catch anything else with your resistance down the way it is. Plenty of rest, plenty of fluids, and all the time you need to feel better. Take care!

    • Yep. I don’t plan to go anywhere that might expose me to Bad Stuff! πŸ˜‰ And I’m sort of forced to rest whether I like it or not, because I don’t have the energy to do much else. But I do think I’m getting a wee bit better everyday, so hopefully, I’ll be back to normal (such as that is) really soon! πŸ™‚ Thanks, Mae, and you stay well, my Penderpal! πŸ˜€ ❀
