Thank you for stopping by today. As the season would have it, I’ve gone and gotten normal-people-sick. For those of you without a chronic illness this is when you get a typical illness, like a cold, on top of your chronic illness. I must confess though, aside from getting a touch of whooping cough, which made it’s way through my house during Winter of 2017 (yes, really), I’ve not gotten a typical illness since 2014. You might be thinking wow, that’s great! I was too, but then a couple health care professionals told me no, in fact, that is not great. Something to do with my immune system and for the life of me I can never remember what they said. Well, so maybe it’s good news I’m normal-people-sick. My only concern at this point, after a week, is keeping my asthma under control with my rescue inhaler and making sure pneumonia doesn’t settle in. Last time this happened, about eight or nine years ago, I had viral pneumonia for a month, so trying like the dickens to keep that from happening.
So with that, I bid you adieu, it’s back to resting, on top of my normal resting. Which, lets be candid, is really not resting it’s simply my way of life these days. It’s a good thing to keep a sense of humor about these things. Someday maybe I’ll write a post about how seeing the humor in it all has been excellent coping tool for me. Hope to see you next Tuesday with better news and more paintings. Happy Flu-Season-Fall y’all (I lived in the South for a few years so I allow myself an occasional y’all. ;)). 🎃🍂
A few more of my little doodle paintings. The Happiness picture is not mine, but I really do love it so I thought I’d pass it along.
