Good morning. How is everyone this morning? It's still dark but the forecast shows clear skies and says we're headed for a high of 88° today - that's getting almost too hot, too early, although some who are still getting freezing temps might appreciate it.
I haven't had a lot going on this past week - Wednesday, I went for an ultrasound on the last ablation on my left leg. They say it's looking good and it seems that my symptoms have all, mostly been alleviated, so it seems that after all the hassle with scheduling, those have been a success.
I started getting a sore throat on Thursday, and thinking that it was just because of a dry throat, I began drinking lots of water. That helped, but not enough. By Friday, I a full-blown sore throat which is still holding on. Yesterday, my sinuses began acting up - runny, stuffy nose and sneezing up a storm. Last night, I began coughing, but it was a real dry, hacking cough that was quite painful. I realized that if I drank something warm, my throat didn't hurt so badly, so I drank lots of warm lemonade, sweetened with raw honey (which has antibiotic properties). When I went to bed last night I took a dose of Ny-Quil, which allowed me to sleep for, at least, part of the night.
I don't have aches/pains, etc so I'm pretty sure I just have a spring cold and not the flu.
This morning, I feel like death warmed over, but that could be "hangover" from the Ny-quil as much as from my cold. I'd like to say I get to spend the day in bed, but that's not to be, as it doesn't fit into my husband's plans... :-)
Weight-wise, I'm down 1 pound. I'm not sure to what I should attribute that. I haven't really been eating a lot different, although the last couple of days, I probably haven't been eating as much as usual due to my sore throat. I haven't been eating as many sandwiches as I'd been eating for a while so that's less bread and I always lose more weight when I eat less bread. Anyway, whatever it is, I'll it; I just wish I was sure, so I could keep it up and continue to go in the right direction.
So - that's my story - what's yours? How have you done? I hope you've had a good week and have reached some of your goals.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
