I'm Alive!

Well actually, I am alive, but a little (no, a lot) sick. I can't remember the last time i was this sick. Actually i think it was about 10 years ago when i was living in New Hampshire. I caught some sort of flu bug and was banished to bed for over a week! My BFF Rachel was also there, cause we worked at the same Residential Crisis-Care Facility, His Mansion Ministries. Anyway, we were both sick in bed, but it was nice to have a good friend close by. Ok, so yeah I went to Urgent Care last night, and if you know me at all, that is not something I ever do. The last time i went was about 2 years ago when I had this lingering cough\lung thing. My boyfriend at the time was convinced it was pneumonia... and I was convinced he needed to stop worrying about me so much! Finally, i begrudgingly headed to the UC and they did some x-rays and sure enough... pneumonia. Eat Crow Sabrina! :)
Well I don't have pneumonia, and they ruled out strep, even though my throat is raw and painfully tender. They took blood to see my blood count and all that fun stuff... I have a lingering fever and a bad case of the flu. This flu also encompasses sore throat\congestion\bad cough\achy limbs and very out of it feeling. It's a doozy! And I was just thinking to myself last week, 'Girl you held out with all this sickness going around!' Guess i spoke too soon.
Where did i just hear that pain was a good thing? Oh yeah it was in the movie World Trade Center. One of the guys trapped in the WTC said, "Pain is good, then you know you are ALIVE."
And Alive I am.

Oh, boo-boo....
(I had that dumb bug 2 weeks ago and spend a week in bed)! I know things are tough right now, but just remember-every flower that ever bloomed had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there! What a dumb line that was:-) Feel better soon!!!

Not to be a downer but I heard this flu thing that's goin round takes about a week and a half. Geez. Sorry bout it.
I'm SURE you'll beat the odds and cut it to around a week and three days....
