Slice of Life #43: Illness

Hey gang.

I was out of town for four days. When I got home I was so exhausted I could barely stay awake. I thought maybe it was just the after effects of moving at high speed for so long and not sleeping at night (the hotel's sheets felt like plastic trash bags - NOT exaggerating!). Anyway, I rested all day yesterday, so when I woke up this morning still feeling icky, I decided to call my doctor. Sure enough, I have strep AND a minor flu bug. Oh yay.

So this week's prompt is illness, because I'm really not up to posting pictures but I'm already a day behind. Thoughts about illness bring up all sorts of ideas for me. Such as mother's nurturing talents, how you treated certain patients, history of ancestor's illnesses or death due to illness, childhood sickness, etc. Another thought that comes to mind is your feelings on vaccines, mental illness in your family, being addicted to prescription drugs... kinda goes along with last week's first aid, but it is a little different.

Those of you that posted last week - I'll be back to check out your blog posts soon. I'm sorry I'm having an off week. I do appreciate your participation. In the meantime, I'm headed to bed. I hope all of you are feeling well!!!


  1. You were supposed to write about illness this week, not endure it. Get well soon!

  2. Aw... don't you worry about a thing as far as Slice of Life is concerned. Just get well :-)


  3. Awww - thank you both for the hugs! :)
