the road to recovery

Hello, all you dear wonderful caring people....! Naomi here.....finally! It has been a very hard week, I must say.....One I wouldn't wish on even my worst enemy, if I had one.....But, I am happy to say......I am now more 'well', than not.....Hooray!

Still not quite right, mind you, but Ohhhhh Sooooooo much better......Whewwwwww! There were a few moments there where I wasn't sure that this 'thingy' would ever be over....But, I am now truly on the road to recovery and what a blessed relief that is !!!!

I found a rather graphic cartoon which may give you just a little idea of one of the things my body has been going through.....I hope it won't offend anyone....It just seemed to speak for me without me having to explain in great detail, verbally speaking....... Well....I realize it says "Rodney", but it could say my name or any one's name. Anyway, even that is improving.....So, I hope to be able to pop by and visit everyone in a day or two.....And please know that I thank you all so very much for your lovely concerned comments....I hope all of you are well and having a lovely weekend.....And for those who are sickly too, please please please, do feel better very very soon......




More To Come........

Note: Today is the Anniversary of December 7th, 1941.....the attack on Pearl Harbor, which brought the United States into World War 2.....Many lives were lost that day. May we remember all of them, and all those wounded, too, on this day, 67 years ago.

Note 2: 9:40a.m. Slight relapse this A.M. OY! I am sure it will pass.....At least I hope it will.....This is one mean bug!

Naomi, I didn't know that your had been sick! I hope you are feeling better. Now see what happens when you hang around cemeteries. Stay away from there...

Today is my mom's birthday....She was 13 years old on the day of the bombing. They were just about to start her birthday party when the news came over the radio that Pearl had been bombed.....I remember her telling me that it ruined her birthday party...Mom is gone now but I remember her birthday every year because of Pearl Harbor.

Hi Naomi - I didn't know you were under the weather. Glad to see you are on the mend. We have a snowy NH here. Hope the weather for you is conducive to getting outside for a spell of fresh air!

Goodness. Hope you feel better soon. There is so much going around right now. I had my teeth cleaned Wednesday and got a cold 24 hours or so after which I am hoping will soon be better-- although I will miss having Lauren Bacall's voice. Winter. Ah joy

That cartoon is hilarious! It speaks volumes, doesn't it?
Continue to rest and take care until you are fully recovered. You will get around to visiting all your blog buddies in time, butt (I mean but) for now, the important thing is for you to get completely well.

My parents' anniversary is today. I never forget it because they were married on Pearl Harbor Day.
Pearl Harbor Day and 9-11-01 are such enormous tragedies in our nation's history. I hope we never suffer losses like those again.

I'm thankful you are in your own home. I had a similar attack in India and I have never had such an explosive experience. Fortunately we had a courier who was magical and knew exactly what to do so I could manage to keep the medicine down and carry on the tour next day. All I wanted to do was be at home in my own bed.
Carry on getting better.

I'm glad you're on the mend. I was worried about you.

we're all dealing with a wicked cold in my family. i've had to sit up to sleep for the last 5 nights because of the incessant hacking.

I'm sorry you are not feeling well. I was the same way for 10 days and my Doctor told me to take some Fiber Pills. (Puts some bulk ) I recovered the same day. I wanted to run and give him a hug! I certainly had gotten good at running! LOL

Naomi- if its what I think you mean, it's been going around. My other half got it on Friday and spent the weekend in the bathroom. Then it morphed into a sore throat and head cold. Blech.

Hope you feel better soon.

Gosh, sounds like this "bug" really got the best of you. Almost sounds like a bacterial type germ.
I sure hope the worst is "behind" you now....pun intended! (smile)
Feel better, Naomi!
