Happy Little Trees

Still sick. I feel like crap. I thought I was just tired and my thyroid hormone was too low again but now I know I have the flu. Sucks. But on the bright side, I don't have to work and I don't have any babies to look after so I can just be sick without having to still 'do' like my poor sister 'does' when she gets sick. So I've been laying on the couch with Peanut watching old episodes of 'The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross' only getting up to refill my glass of Gatorade.(citrus cooler of course) I would like nothing more than to be on that show just so I can paint a masterpiece then pull a rescued baby squirrel out of my pocket to introduce to my viewers like he did once. I'd rather have the flu than thyroid problems again that's for sure. I had to get my blood work done for my endocrinologist(say that really fast 10 times) the other day and the guy was so rough with my arm, I have a bruise there. I'm such a camper when it comes to getting my blood drawn too, I hate it but it's not like I have a choice. Of course I've never met anyone who says they enjoy needles. I won't know if I need radiation again for another couple weeks. At least now I know what to expect so it's not so scary. Last time I was expecting some kind of Sci-Fi looking contraption but it was in the form of a large blue pill . Then I got naseaus after, my glands under my ears swelled up, and I had to drink a lot of water and go home the next day. So I'm not scared. I thought I had this f-ing cancer thing beat already dammit! Well I sort of do, it's just taking a little bit longer than I thought. This isn't deadly, it's just a life nuisance. Wanna hear the funniest part? The main reason I don't want to have radiation again is because the hospital where I had to stay in to have it done has the nastiest food I've ever been served in my life! The food where I had my surgery was really good and fresh and the food they gave me at the other place was so nasty, I get the heaves just thinking about it.

Don't feel sorry for me for longer than 2 seconds. I have excellent health insurance so I'm lucky. Plus I have my voice back. Took forever, doesn't sound exactly like I used to, and it gets weak by the end of the day if I've been talking and laughing a lot-which is just about everyday. But I'm happy to have it and I can sing in the shower again. And in the car.

Well I can't help it, I'm still going to worry about you just a little bit.

Hugs, girl and get well soon.

Laurie, you're so sweet. The last person you should be worrying about is me, especially with what you've been going through. I'm just fine. Thanks for the hugs.

One-one thousand, two-one thousand.

Happy Little Trees & Happy Little Peas.

Feel better, Sweet Pea. With your positive spirit, you can beat anything.

Many hugs and lollipops if they would help

I too offer hugs. Being sick sucks, even (especially)if it is just the flu. But, you get to watch Bob Ross. I love Bob Ross.

ps - I fixed my blog (somewhat). Thanks for the heads up!
