Vanishing act

In case you have wondered I have not vanished from the face of the earth...but might as well have for all that I have done.

I have had some kind of cold/flu thing...and have hardly been on the computer. I haven't left the house in 8 days except to go to the doctor yesterday....I had to get better before I could stand to go down there. No Joke! I had been having a scratchy throat off and on for 3 or 4 weeks, then last Wednesday evening it hit, and did not leave. I cannot sleep for coughing...even the cough syrup with codeine in it did not do the trick last night. I would be so sleepy I could hardly hold my eyes open, but the minute I tried to lay down and sleep, I would start coughing.

I did get a couple naps in last night, but woke each time coughing so hard I could not catch my breath. Hopefully tonight will be better.
Added to that, one of my kitties got sick and has passed on...this is by no means the whole story but I don't feel like telling it all. It was Cougar, my own little Roger and I both hurt over that. At least he was well loved while he lived. Just so many little things we will miss about him.
I have not been visiting any blogs...I may start trying to go through a few...I know i have been missing some good pictures from several of going to take me a while to catch up. We had went to Sarah and Jeremy's the weekend before this started for me, so missed some blogging then I think.

I'm sorry that you haven't been feeling well, Rose. I hope you have a better night sleeping tonight!

I am so very sorry to hear that Cougar passed away. The death of a loved pet is a very sad thing.

I am so sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. :( I hope you are much better soon. Saying you felt too sick to go to the doc reminds me of someone who used to say the same thing when told to go to the doc: "I'll go when I feel better...." :(

Sorry about kitty, too.

It's time for good things to start happening in your life again.

Hugs from afar,

I'm so sorry to read this, Rose. I wondered where you were. I thought you were just busy playing with your granddaughter.

Sorry you have been so sick... And I'm sorry also about Cougar... I know how attached we all get with our pets... I'm just heart-broken for you... May God Bless You, Rose.

Hope you are over the grunge soon! I've not had the flu in years and years, and don't ever want it again either! I do get a flu shot every year, so maybe that helps. Love your Sunflower.

Hi Rose, I certainly am sorry to hear about your illness and the passing of little Cougar. Take good care of yourself and keep us posted on how you are doing.

I'm so sad about Cougar, Rose!

Eight days of being sick sure is a long time to feel miserable. I hope you feel better very soon!

I'm sorry to hear you've been plagued with such a severe cough. That's takes it out of a person! I hope you are on the mend at this point.

I did miss you!!! I have been checking both blogs every day, and wondering what is going on, but just figured you maybe don't post every day, or were real busy. I am so sorry to hear of all your troubles!! These summer cold are the worst!! I think it's the laying down that starts the coughing cycle, maybe you could try sleeping in a recliner for a few hours at a time, or more propped up in bed? But glad to see you back, maybe the worst is over for now. I do hear that it's good to get these things from time to time, it keeps our immune systems in shape! It's seems it's always the ones who are never sick a day in their lives who just drop dead all of a sudden.

Mary said...

I'm finally catching up and hate to see this sad post. I'm sorry you have been so sick and hope you are better soon. I know how much you loved Cougar, so I am deeply sorry about his passing. Hang in will get better again. Hugs and prayers from here.

Nancy said...

So sorry to hear about your kitty! I'll never forget you and Rachel coming over to comfort me when my kitty passed on when I was a kid. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Hugs and prayers!

Hi Rose,
So sorry to hear about your beloved kitty. It's hard losing one of the 'family.'
Feel better soon.
