Hi there Everyone: Where has the time gone?? One day Nylablue & I were posting cute photos & the next I lost a week, maybe even more!!! This year so far has been a comedy of errors it seems. I broke my baby toe. overdosed myself in my sleep; my fridge packed it in & I had to borrow the Custodian’s fridge for days til my fridge was properly repaired. Just when things seemed quiet (beware the QUIET!) I overdosed poor Nylablue with her Mirtazipine & put her into Serotonin Syndrome…plus her Feline Herpes Virus activated big time & she is STILL in a flare-up to this day & not eating properly!!! I did have her back on track (more or less) the end of March when suddenly I was hit with something akin to THE PLAGUE!!!! My Easter never happened!! I was too busy projectile vomiting & having diarrhea that would have stopped an elephant in its tracks!! I spent Easter Sunday & Monday & Tuesday in bed…..in agony from head to toe with excruciating bone pain & fever…..poor Nylablue stayed right by my side the entire time. She left only for bathroom breaks & to eat whatever kibble & old meat should could find in her bowls….I remember sometime during those 3 days she was head butting me hard & yowling!!! Brought me around long enough to stumble out of bed & give her some fresh food & water & then I was back in bed passed out!!
I called Public Health Tuesday April 2nd & spoke with a Nurse who verified I had NOROVIRUS which is a mutation of the NORWALK VIRUS!! This Virus KILLS the elderly quickly…it is the same Virus on the fancy cruiseliners you have heard about in the news!!!!!!
I am mercifully over the worst & no longer contagious!!! Which is great as I have been out every day this week doing errands, going to Doctor’s appointments & Chiropractor & laundry!! The fatigue is the lingering side effect so it is not uncommon to find me face down in bed around 4 pm in the afternoon sawing logs so to speak!!!!!
So today I am off to get 8 Lidocaine injections!! 🙂 This will help with the chronic pain which will be a HUGE relief. Me getting out of the house will be a HUGE relief for NYLABLUE who can snooze in peace without me hovering over her like an Alien spacecraft!!! She is still not right & I am holding firm to letting her choose what she wants to do!!!
We are also under a BIG Winter storm watch & warning!!! So far nothing yet but there is one nasty old storm heading up from the MidWest States…so much for Spring….maybe in May? June? Nothing would surprise me…..
I checked thru my diaries…I haven’t broken any mirrors in a very long time….hahaha!!! I guess it is just Life on Life’s terms which can be a bit of a ‘challenge’ at times….
Oh & tomorrow I have to go for MORE bloodwork to check for Rheumatoid arthritis factor & a specialized Thyroid test also. I have tested negative for Rheumatoid many times & my Thyroid has never presented a problem…at least my Doctor is thorough!! I have 2 MRI’S coming up in May: 1 for my Lumbar Vertabraes & 1 for Sacro-Illiatic Joint/Pelvic Bones to see why I keep dragging my right foot (which is how I broke my wee toe back in January); losing my balance, stumbling about like a mad drunk & falling!!!!!!
By the way we never said THANK YOU to Easy Pup for his lovely Get Well card to Nylablue:
So we say a hearty THANK YOU to sweet EASY!!! You are such a lovely doggie!!! Well that’s my blog for today…I know it is all rather dry; a reflection of my mood I suppose…hopefully better days & Spring will arrive soon!! WE can’t wait!!!!! ((HUGS)) from Sherri-Ellen & ~~head butts~~from Nylablue.
