They call it the flu.. I call it fucking life up

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.

  1. Glad you’re back with us chickie the flu is horrible. . They told me and Lance this was the flu but it feels more like an upper respiratory funk. I’ve had the flu 2x in my life and this doesn’t feel like it.

  2. I’m so glad the wedding was wonderful, but had to chuckle about the missing 10 days – whoever stole those also stole mine, there’s a thief in our midst! I’m sorry you’ve been feeling so awful, the flu really can mess you up a lot! My chest infection doesn’t want to leave me alone and I’ve been feeling utterly rotten, and that’s despite a flu jab. Here’s to hoping your temp settles soon & your body recovers some degree of normality asap. Sending (hopefully non-contagious) hugs! xx

    1. Sorry to hear you’re missing days too. 😦 The prednisone has cleared my lungs, but yes I was fearing that I too would break a rib with all the coughing. The not being able breathe was scary as hell too. I have a new “respect” for this monster. and it seems to have taken off like wildfire and now Einstein and Thing two and her boyfriend are horizontal also 😦
