This Interlude Brought to You by H1N1

We're home as of last night, but don't expect to see a lot of me on here for awhile. I enjoyed the reunion Saturday but it quickly went downhill from the time we got back to Jeff & Deb's place about 4:30. Will spare you the details, and just say they include an ambulance ride to Marshalltown, IA hospital where I stayed for 2 1/2 days after being diagnozed with H1N1. We drove home yesterday..left about noon and not home until 8:00 and every one of the 375 miles or so was awful. I've never been so sick, run such high fevers and high pulse rate. It's nasty stuff and coupled with my severe COPD, well, let's just say it hasn't been good. I obviously carried it up there from Kansas and since I wasn't doing any coughing or sneezing I'm praying I didn't infect anyone at the reunion or any other time. And I'm really praying Tom doesn't get it yet.

When we got home we discovered our DSL modem/router had died while we were gone so had to locate a new one (Tom made a trip to Joplin today) and since I was feeling some better today we got it installed so we could end our 8 days without Internet holiday. Have just done a few perfunctory things..that's all I'm up to sitting up for, but felt I needed to check on financial things since we do everything online and it's really freaky when you don't have Internet access.

So...I'll be back when I'm better, but that may still take awhile

Mary I wondered where you had been, I had noticed you were mighty quite. I had just thought yesterday I wondered how you were doing on the Dutch Treat quilt for hand quilting. I'm so sorry you were so sick. It has me worried - my grandson has not been able to get the shot yet and he has a history of asthma, he is only 9, I so hope he stays safe and doesn't get it before he can get the shot. Take care of yourself and I'm thinking of you.

Oh {{{Mary}}} get well very soon my friend. Don't over do and get LOTS of rest, we will be here when you are ready.

H1N1 hit our little town really hard and I was washing and sanitizing at work A LOT to make sure I didn't get it before going to Seattle. I even managed not to catch the colds my family had while here.

Speedy recovery,

Crispy

OMGosh! How awful that must have been for you. Glad to hear you're on the mend. Take care of yourself and make sure you don't relapse.

Mary, glad to hear that you are home, sorry to hear that your trip was lousy. But now that you are home you can get the proper rest you need. Take care and hope to see you blogging again soon, reading your blog makes me feel that much closer to home. (I was raised in Erie KS) Pittsburg, Joplin all so comfy to me. So yes take care, get better.

Mary I am so sorry you were so ill, and equally as thankful that you are on the mend. Please take it easy until you are completely over this flu. It is nothing to mess with.
