NEWS FLASH– Entire Village Afflicted with Plague* and/or Double Plague**. Film at eleven.
** (Walking pneumonia)
Hubby and I both came down with the same crud that Mama has. It came to visit during the night on Tuesday and decided to stay. I had fever, night sweats, clammy chills, and coughing. Fever in one ear was 101.9 and in the other 102.3 until I took aspirin. Doctor’s office is closed on Wednesdays (!!!) so we couldn’t get in until today, by which time Hubby was coughing and said he had awful body aches. We were all sent for lung X-rays to make sure we don’t have pneumonia. Crap!! Double crap!!
This is all the election’s fault. Mama caught this at the caucus when we went to the elementary school cafeteria and sat at the kids’ lunch tables. Then it snowed. Then she insisted I wait on her (“Bring me some oatmeal,” “Take away this bowl of oatmeal that I couldn’t eat,” “Fix my covers that I have just coughed all over,” “Sit on the foot of my bed and catch what I have.) So I caught it and was generous enough to share it with Hubster. Whee.
The dog is fine. Frisky and barking. Wants to know why we all moan and lie around all day.
Stay away from the coughing trio. Far, far away. Maybe the germs can’t travel through the wires.
