Dying Man’s Daily Journal

It seems like a long time since I was here on the blog, too long actually.

This past month or so has been I guess strange by that I simply mean Vi and I can’t seem to get our timing together. We have both been very ill with this cold/flu/chest infection thing. It has been almost like a yoyo. One will start to feel better and the other will be going in the other direction feeling worse and then visa versa.

There have been many times over the years when I have written (even just a week or so ago) of how Vi has dragged me kicking and screaming to the hospital. She is always congratulated for doing so and that is fair enough. OK, Mel and all you out there it is now my turn to be congratulated. This time the shoe is on the other foot, I was the one doing the dragging and pushing. It is a good thing I did, she has pneumonia and a severe ear infection. So now we are both on antibiotics and the end of this all should be in sight.

Feeling much better and will be on line much more. It is just the computer is in the basement and well stairs that go downward are a great idea. It is just when you go down at some point you have to go back up. Stairs that go upward, not so nice.

    Hi Bill … crumbs poor Vi – on top of everything else … all I can say is look after yourselves and pop those pills appropriately and may that ‘better feeling day’ come along very soon ..

    Stairs … ok can understand the trepidation coming up again .. so take it easy – and we’ll see you here as and when … Hilary

    Ohhhhhhh. Poor Vi! And poor you. And poor Vi again–and then you and then……(you get the gist….)
    I’m sooooo glad she had enough practice on you that you were adequately trained in the fine art of ‘dragging kicking and screaming the whole way’! LOL 😉

    Seriously, sir–I know it’s a pain to do the back and forth, ‘first her then me, then her and then me again..’, but think where it’d be if both of you were out for the count at the same time. (I know–little consolation after it’s been sooo many times of the back and forth..)

    I think I’ll just be glad the both of you are being treated at the same time–maybe that’ll be the answer to the back and forth? I sure hope so!

    And yes–basement stairs that go down…also go up! And yes, up is a pain.
    Which is why you need to just buy time and get to feeling better? (makes sense to me!)
    A day at a time–you two need to just rest, heal and relax a bit. (I’m betting that ‘relax a bit’ thing has been pretty elusive as of late.)

    Oh, and I’m happy to report: 406,849 hits!!

    Hey Mel, thank you for you kind thoughts. Learning how to use an I Pod, don’t have to deal with the stairs on the tough days

    Take care Bill and Vi! Thinking of you both and sending up prayers for patience with the ol’ bodies, patience with each other, and some humor to make it all go more smoothly.
    Hi Lydia. I thank you for the good wishes and prayers. I am happy to say we are both starting to feel much better. Thankful patience with each other has’t been an issue, it is more impatience with our selves.
    I am trying to figure out this I Pod. It is different than the regular computer

    Sending good thoughts and blessings. Hope u and Vi are feeling much better. I was in the hospital over a week with the same thing. My oxygen sats kept dropping into the low 80’s. My illness started with a cold and turned into a asthma. I am much better now and hope you ans Vi are too.
    Hi Nita. Sorry to hear you got that virus. Oxygen levels that low are a struggle and a worry. Happy to hear you are doing better as are we.
