Awesome! I'll need to get some new shoes though, and maybe a cute new parasol?

a western wedding, because i am going to marry a cowboy :)

Alrighty, then. . . if you're marrying a cowboy, then it has to happen up here in the deep and immense beauty of rural Montana.

You won't have to spend much on flowers, this place is covered with them!

I had the flu back at beginning of December. There were three symptoms of note:

1. Pain. Everywhere, including one of the worst and most persistent headaches I've had in years.
2. Fever.
3. Swollen throat (glands) - painful to touch.

That was it. No upset stomach, no digestive tract issues, no congestion, no runny nose. Just pain and fever....

Leggs,

Pretend you do have the flu, and take it easy.

It hurts a lot less than pushing yourself and discovering that you did.

Maybe watch a good movie?

You know Crock, that IS actually what I DO need to do. As i mentioned earlier on, the mere act of going to Safeway last evening and shopping kind of wiped me out. I did nap for about two hours earlier this morning (after waking at 5:45am for work) and can feel my curly head telling me to stop being so "awake". There is that stubborn aspect of my personality that thinks "if you don't have a raging fever and are not hurling, go balls out!". I believe I need to rethink this, because as the day goes on, the more worn out I feel. (Good advice, I shall listen! thank you friend)



t*r ... stop with the cuteness! :)

~Enjoy Life

Kath, your flowers are sooooo pretty!! I love 'em.

t*r... I think you need to get married in Montana.


Dingus... Seriously, the doctors never did address if even had a COLD. Their goal was to determine I didn't have a stroke.
I would be lying if I said I felt GREAT right now, because I truly don't. I DID stay home today from work, so I think THAT'S a step in the right direction!

Docs can be as myopic as the next person leggs.

When I broke my neck I also had a nasty abrasion on my elbow with glass embedded in it. When they discharged me from the hospital I STILL had an open wound on my arm with glass in it. No one in Spinal ICU even remotely thought to check it... and I bear a sizable scar to this day too.

Anyway, there's no real treatment even if you did have the flu.

Get well leggs.

And. . . just in case you haven't found your cowboy, yet . . . maybe you need to come up here and go leanin' with me. . . you wouldn't believe how many DARLING young cowboys play up on Big Mtn!

They pull up to the ski area in their big ass duallies - couple bales of hay in the back - usually a Border collie or two. . . and they park the rig, hop out, kick off their cowboy boots, pull on some leanin' clothes, swap Stetson for helmet, grab whatever they lean on (both kinds-a-leanin' - ghey tray and skeez) and fire to the lifts.

Completely cracked me up when I first moved up here. I FULLY did not expect cowboys to lean!

:-)

WOOT!

Leggs, if you go on migraine meds imitrex has worked really well. You feel a bit sleepy, but it stops the pain and nausea. Sometimes too much exercise or sunlight are triggers. Hope you feel better.

One of my favorite things to say of the hospital is that, no, this is not Burger King, and you can't have it your way. So be thankful they let you keep the hamburger meat, Ding!

I had something similar happen in my recent injury. A nice couple of abrasions to my face didn't receive so much as a wet cloth cleanup. My wife cleaned it up since the wounds were weeping all over the pillows. She didn't stop her cleanup there. I decree my Doc wife receives an honorary CNA degree! You wouldn't believe what she did for me. The horror, the horror...

Medical situations often fall into triage mode where they treat the gushing wound, not what looks like a cosmetic feature.

Glad you left the spinal icu to climb another day too, man. I was fortunate to avoid that department! Although, I was close enough. I guess I mean to say I'm glad I avoided spinal cord involvement.

Wilbeer ... I so sorry to hear you have the flu. :(
That sucks ass and I hope you feel better soon. It sounds as though snow awaits. ~sending healing energy your way!

Hi Sullly ... Imitrex shots... oh how I do remember those. Delivery system of just one shot/dose which made me feel FUNKY before the relief set in. Well worth the FUNKY feeling.
I mentioned to the Neurologist I was an Imitrex user in the past (in my mid to late 20's) but because my migraines are so infrequent as I've gotten older, I'd not been Rx'd any migraine meds for years. Perhaps it's something I should look into again as I never want to experience the massive headache and pain I had on the right side of my face on Saturday and Sunday. ~xx

Jim ... what an interesting clip. I like the way the "main guy" talked about "cheating" and thus ending up with 3 spider bites. Ooops. He seemed to be moving pretty well as he and his companions continued their hitchhiking endeavor. (I look forward to watching the entire clip) Thank you for the laugh. You're good like that.

Jebus ... do you and Dingus need a moment alone together? :)

~Thank you all for the well wishes, the laughs, and the flowers. I'm heading into the office today despite the fears my colleagues will have that I will get them sick. I won't get them sick. I may pass on my case of the uglies, but I won't get anyone sick. :)

~Enjoy Life... Enjoy Good Health... and for those of you sick with the flu, listen to your body and don't push yourself too far.

~peace

I'm all about kindness!

It's like the Universe's black-out shade. Just pull it down and block out the unkindness. . . but. . . every once in a while you have to peek behind it so you can keep abreast of the stuff you're covering up!

Keepin' it real keeps the kindness alive!
