And then Mom and the Cat get Sick

Yes.  It Finally Happened.

Down for the Count.  A Nasty Summer Cold.

With Temperatures reaching 100 Degrees both Outside and In.

Fever.  Chills.  Nasty Deep Hard Cough.

And Zapped of Any Energy.

But I Still Had to Go in to Work.

I know what they say about Working when You’re Sick…Don’t Do It…But I had to isolate myself and Just Go in and Work.

Lots of Cough Drops and Kleenex filled the Days.

Two Full Weeks.  Antibiotics.  Coughing.  No Sleep.

Ugh.

Once Home, Dad was in Charge and I watched a lot of Texas Flip N Move…a Silly Show about finding old funky houses that are about to be demolished and winning an auction to buy the house then moving the house off site and renovating it.

It was reassuring that for each episode the house would have fun renovations and be loved by buyers and get sold.  Everyone wins…Mover, Flipper, Buyer, Seller, Auctioneer.

Oh yes.  The Cat.

Eating Ballerina Tutu Tulle will make for a Very Upset Kitty Stomach.

Three Days of Hair Balls and Tutu all over the Floor.

It’s Been a Lovely Two Weeks of Summer Cold Nonsense.

But the Earth keeps Spinning and We Celebrated a Birthday…Thanks Dad.

With Banners and Birthday Morning Donuts…

And a Scavenger Hunt Tree to Find the Presents…

And a Summer-Themed Cake with Candles.

This Celebration may not have had all the Fancy Mom Touches…

But there was Magic.  Thankfully.  Magic.

My Hero Husband/Dad.  🙂

Stay Well My Friends.   So Glad to Be Back.

  1. Oh dear, Jeanne! Don’t let that get out of hand. In April I waited nearly three weeks to go for what I thought was just a cold or allergies and by the time I was in the ER the bottom of both my lungs had deflated. It was down hill from there. So please, please take care of yourself!
