From the twilight zone...


I just thought I would do a little post as an update sort of thing. Not sure where to begin so I will just jump right in with saying when I started my blog break from this blog Roger was sick...we assumed with just a normal short termed flu. But since there is always something going on here, I was not going to mention it. I hate to be so boring...I was thinking give it a couple days and he will be okay.

But here I am mentioning it....he was sick for two weeks...fevers, chills, and sweats...with two visits to the doctor last week....he had his first night free of night sweats and feeling awful Monday night...this is after two trips to the doctor. He had ended up really dehydrated and low on potassium and sodium....anyway, Tuesday I said something to him about did he feel like he was getting out of the twilight zone? He said that described it exactly, but that he still felt boxed in....

We missed Easter with Lorelei...have not seen her since April 1....I have not been to the strip pits since some time the week before that. We did go for a short drive Sunday but I was too tired to enjoy it. I suppose the stress of it all. I was really thinking it was something besides flu. I figured he would end up in the hospital....thank God he didn't.

I have not accomplished anything I intended with my break from this blog...just could not settle in and work with worrying about Roger. Instead I have been spending a lot of time on Google Earth looking at photos...yesterday I kind of started feeling the return to normal. Hopefully I can get back in the groove and get a few things done.

Oh gosh, I know how you must be feeling. I hope he is over the worst and will start getting better. The worry can just make you all out of whack!

it is good for you to share this with us and good for us. we all care and like to know when things are going on that need prayer. i hope your life gets back quickly now to normal. i am with you, i would have been freaking out that it was something else. glad he is feeling better.

I certainly hope Roger is coming out of this illness period. I can appreciate low sodium and potassium. I once passed out at early coffee and they hauled me into the IR and found out my sodium was very low (caused by a medication I had been taking). The mind does not work normally when these electrolytes get out of balance. All the best to both of you.

Oh My Goodness... I had no idea, Rose.... I knew you were taking a Blog Break--but we all do that at times... I'm so sorry to hear about Roger... Hope he does continue to improve. Bless his heart--and yours... You both are in my prayers.
Hugs,
Betsy

It's so hard when doctors cannot find the reason for why someone feels so ill. I'm glad Roger is feeling better!
