I’ve been through a lot in my life, is it possible that I have never had the flu before?!?! Maybe I caught some special breed of this monster? Whatever the hell you call it, it seriously fucked me up.
As many of you know, Thing 1 Got married on March 10th. We went out of town for her wedding on the 9th, and from the moment we walked out the door the entire weekend was MAGICAL! (I have pictures and video to prove it!) Literally EVERYTHING was perfect.
At 6 am on March 11th, I closed the door to our hotel suite saying goodnight to the last “after party” guest. I climbed into bed next to Einstein and smiled. Our princess really was a princess!!!! What a wonderful weekend!
Did you know that today is March 20th? Trust me it is! ( I have checked the TV, the Computer, and my phone 3 times) How the hell did this happen?!?! 10 days!!! I have “missed” 10 days!!!! Where the hell have I been?!?!?
Again, they call it the FLU. Oh I’ve got some words for it, but autocorrect keeps changing what I say into “#$^$#^@#$(%$)” I keep trying to fill in the ” missing pieces”, but I can’t believe it’s been 10 days. Where the hell have I been for 10 days?!?!?
The answer is Horizontal. Drugged, in a daze etc. Apparently, I caught the flu and it literally kicked my ass or fucked life up. I remember arguing with Thing 2 about going to the Emergency Room. (In hindsight, Never have I been so grateful that she doesn’t take no for an answer.) The fever that I had been fighting reached 104, my oxygen sats were in the 80’s, and I got dehydrated. I’m home again and I today I am vertical, but that’s all I’ve got for now. I have a feeling this is gonna be a long road.
