I was sick for the better part of two weeks, and frankly I’m still not 100%.  It’s really, really hard to feel grateful when you are pretty sure you have plague.  But let’s try…

  1. Today is my Father’s 80th birthday.  I am grateful for his support my entire life, and that he is still around.  Yay Dad!
  2. Prescriptions being called in directly to the pharmacy.  It’s just one less step to getting medicine
  3. Won Ton soup from the American Chinese restaurant conveniently located 1/2 block from CVS, and the little noodles
  4. Doctor being across the street from my apartment
  5. X-rays because the Doctor didn’t hear the lung rattle with the stethoscope
  6. Prescription drugs (ok- love/hate relationship- but they allow you to get better)
  7. Mandarin orange slices in little convenient packs (I don’t normally eat canned fruit, but there was something oddly comforting about these)
  8. Peach/mango/orange juice
  9. microwavable heat wrap for my achy muscles
  10. Netflix
  11. friends who checked up on me
  12. texting (seriously- when you keep coughing it’s a lifesaver)

  1. My mom had pneumonia a while back and it kicked her ass. I hope you feel better soon, but I bet you have at least another week before you start feeling 100%…I hope not, though. Pneumonia is no joke!

  2. Was wondering where you were, so at least you can take comfort in the fact that your absence was noted and readers missed your musings. The body does heal, sometimes not as quickly as we’d like. Glad you are on the mend.

  3. I have found recently that Mondays are not my favourite day. I know it’s a cliche but I am increasingly disliking them.Tomorrow I shall do one of these lists to shake the feelings. Thanks for the idea 😊😊
