talked too soon

Saturday, February 16, 2013

The shot worked wonders and I over did myself and wrenched my knee. The bad side effects of the shot is it wires you up and you can't sleep. And that is exactly what happened last night. I barely got 2 hours sleep last night and then due to exhaustion I fainted this morning. So my big plans for today went south. Alas I didn't get any exercise. But one good thing about the shot is I'm not hungry so I'm not eating much. It all could be worse. I'm thankful for my family and tomorrow I get to visit with my youngest son and his family. That means miss molly is coming!

The shot works wonders!!!

Friday, February 15, 2013

Well I'm happy to say but the shot worked wonders and I'm back in the land of living. I figured being a steroid shot that I would be wired too much to sleep last night but I slept the night through and think it had something to do with being so exhausted from fighting the sinus infection so long. But my sinuses are draining now and I no longer have the headache nor the fever. I do know my RA doc is not going to be happy about me taking the shot but it is like I've said before I either suffer from brittle bones and joints or sinus crud..same when I have to use my steroid inhaler..do I want to breathe or walk..kind of a love hate relationship really..but I'm so so happy that I'm feeling much better.

I did get a lot of stitching done while under the weather this week. I finished the table topper and will wash and iron and then take photos and I finished a CQ heart. I have stuffed mine as an ornament and only need to stitch the stuffing opening closed and it will be finished. I have another one I have done in wool that I need to do the fancy stitching on yet. But glad to get this one finished as it is for a SAL in a yahoo group. I now have to work on a penny rug that I'm teaching in our next SAL..so guess I best get busy.

Hope everyone has a terrific day.

    So glad you are feeling better! Hopefully, one shot of steroids won't do too much damage. It is such a fine line we walk sometimes, weighing the benefits against the side effects.

You always manage to get so much completed, you are awesome!!!

    So glad to hear that you are feeling better! The steroids are bad but sometimes we have to have deal with the bad to get to the better - and obviously it worked as intended! I can't wait to see the photo of your table topper. I really need to find a way to stitch because I really miss it but my schedule is so jam packed!

not the flu

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Went to the clinic today and I have bad sinus infection. They gave me steroid shot and prescription for antibiotics. I'm hoping to feel better by tomorrow.

Flu

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Well I spoke too soon. I have the flu!!! So why I had been feeling so yucky lately. Think I may have caught it when I went with hubby to the VA clinic...and strangely I had the flu shot back in October so hopefully this won't be too bad. Back to bed now.

    So sorry VON! I got the shot and the flu this year too. Rest up, catch up on tv and reading, and drink lots of fluids.

    There are a couple of different strains of the flu floating about this year in CA. Our youngest granddaughter came down with the norovirus, I think is what the doctor called it. Of course, the flu shot this year doesn't address that virus. She was well in two days, I hope you have a quick recovery too.

Better Day

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Well have had a better day today. I think the front that was causing me so much pain has pushed in and it has been pouring all day but I don't ache near as bad. We drove over to Hot Springs today to Sam's Club as we had to get prescription for hubby and it is cheaper there..It takes a chunk of time out of our day but at least I got some good walking in there and here at home inside today..Also have eaten better today. I got really sick last night and had to spend time in the bathroom so could of been I had a little bug yesterday..we had eaten out at my sister's on Sunday and everytime I eat out somewhere I get sick so probably part of the cause of feeling so yucky yesterday.
I just have to remember I have my good and bad days and to take them in hand and do what I can each day.

    Oh, it really does sound like you might have had a bug. And certainly that front coming through probably didn't help. But even though yesterday was rough you got some walking in today, I think that is really good, you are making the best of the situation!
