Still sick

I'm still sick.  I'm here with my constant companions

trying not to cough my head off.  I thought after taking the antibiotics, I would be doing a lot better, but I can see this is a bad illness and may hang around for awhile.  I haven't been this sick in a long time and I'm already pretty tired of it.

I'm thankful that my favorite show is on today - "Burn Notice" - and so I'm sitting here covered up with my quilt and afghan and watching Michael, Sam and Phoebe as they rid Miami of injustice.  I'll probably fall asleep here and there but it's okay.  I've watched this show so many times, I can usually say the lines verbatim anyway.  I never get tired of it.

The bad thing about this illness is that I haven't been able to go with my husband to his radiation treatments.  He started them yesterday and so far, so good.  He's been really understanding about me not going and he's only there for about 10 minutes, but it just makes me feel bad that I can't go with him.  He will be having radiation for 8 weeks, every day except weekends.  I'm just praying that he doesn't get any side affects and that the cancer is eradicated by this.

I do wish that the Vick's company hadn't decided to change their formula for NyQuil.
It's always been the one medicine that helped me to rest at night and helped calm the cough and helped me to breathe.  I still use it, but it's not the same.  It doesn't work as well as it used to.  I can't understand why they wouldn't at least have the old formula available from behind the pharmacists counter like they did for a few years.  I also don't understand why those of us who do not abuse the medicines have to be punished because of those who do.  This all changed because these products were being used to make illegal drugs and so now we can't get a lot of the medicines that used to help us feel better because of the criminals. I can go on and on all about this but I will step down from my soap box now.

My boys are still sick, too, but thankfully, they seem to getting better quicker than me.  My oldest son has to work in two days, so I'm hoping he's feeling well by then.  Both their birthday's are coming up, too, so I'm hoping we're all better by then so we can celebrate!

God bless you - Julie
