I thought I was getting better and we were desperate for food so we made a trip to Ada today for groceries. We didn't park too far from the store - only a couple of minutes walk with the trolley - but even so I was glad to reach the car. When we got home, we unpacked the shopping and I had a little tidy about while Andy went outside and chopped some trees. I was absolutely shattered and had to have a lie down. It's just starting to feel frustrating now because I really expected to be back to normal by now. I'm not the fittest person in the world normally, but I can manage a 2 minute walk without problems...usually. In other areas things have improved, like my temperature and, even though my chest still sounds crackly and I feel a bit washed out, my peak flows have been really good...normal actually (most of the time). I seem to be heading in the right direction at least...I just wish it was quicker!
I have no other news really except that my sister is now sick with a chest infection. She also has asthma and so its hitting her pretty hard too. I do hope she didn't get it from me! Please say a prayer for her too - she lives on her own, about 450 miles from me so I can't just go there to check up on her. I'm a bit worried about her as I've been hearing so many stories about the swine flu virus lately. I asked about having the swine flu jab last time I went to the doctor but was told I was too sick. I wonder if there's any point asking again when I go for my check up at the end of the month? Anyone know when the flu season is supposed to finish?
I've taken advantage of the fact that I'm pretty much confined to the house and have been busy working on a cute valentines digital scrapbooking kit. What do you think so far? I've made most of the papers, about half of the embellishments and I'm wondering about making alphas too. I love valentines day and think I'm going to use this kit to make a card for my hubby...now that I've bought a nice new printer in the sales (thanks to mum and dad).
