Swine Flu!!!!!!

Hi there everyone :) I'm sure you've been wondering what on earth has happened to me....or maybe you didn't even notice I've been missing....LOL! When I told you last Sunday that I had a bad cold I had absolutely no idea just how sick I was going to get. I finally got to see my doctor yesterday and he thinks that I most probably have had Swine Flu! Without a test there is no way of being 100% certain, but the symptoms indicate that it is. I didn't bother with the test (even though Dr Ross offered it) because the health system is under enormous pressure with the Swine Flu problem.

I am slowly improving, but have very little energy and a very dodgy back after all the coughing! Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive and hope to be back to normal asap! I probably won’t be posting again this week until the MDUC card on Sunday…I still need lots of R&R before I can sit up long enough to create something.

I hope that you are all being super vigilant about hygiene and taking your vitamins :) Believe me when I tell you that you DO NOT want to get this flu…I have NEVER been so sick in my whole life! It was horrible and I hate the thought of any of you guys suffering like that. I fully understand how it can kill people…last Friday I could barely breathe and anyone with breathing problems (like asthma) is definitely in trouble if they get this flu.

OK, gotta go back to bed….see you soon!

OMG you poor thing Kristy! I am so sorry to hear that you have this dreadful flu. I sincerely hope you recover very soon and I hope you don't end up with lasting side affect from this. It must be awful as I have seen so much on TV and I pray I never end up with it. I only have one kidney (very a low immune system) and something like this would not be good for me! Get well soon! TFS

Holy Guacamole! I was getting ready to email Mad yesterday, but then didn't; I figured your back was being unkind and rude, but it is actually that pig flu (as dh refers to it). Oh, Sweetie, I am so sorry you are suffering with this nasty stuff. Load up on your cod liver oil and vitamin D!!!

Sending you big cyber hugs and kisses :)

I was beginning to wonder what you've been up to. Clearly not much, lol. I got Whooping Cough last October - not very nice. I pity the little babies who get it. Anyways, good to hear you are on the mend.

Norma said...

Kristie, OMG, I am soo... sorry to hear about your possible swine flu. Your symptoms sound terrible. I hope you are slowly but surely improving.


Sue said...

Kristie, Wow the swine flu, how horrible. Hope you can rest and get past this soon so you can rejoin the world. We women aren't very good at being bedridden, so I suppose you are feeling like you should get up and do something but can't. Take good care of yourself.
