Day 35: Sick, again

Just when I think I’ve recovered, I feel gross again. Today’s post is going to be a short one, because I don’t feel up to much.

This has been going on all week. I battled off a cough, fatigue and chills on Wednesday night, and yesterday thought I’d put it behind me. Then last night, I was nauseous before I went to bed. I woke up at 3:30 a.m. feeling like I might throw up, and also, weirdly, lightheaded and dizzy, although I was lying down.

I’ve managed to stumble through this day, but it hasn’t been particularly productive. Now my daughter is also complaining of nausea and wooziness.

Was last month just a test run? Is this the thing itself? Or, is it the virus’s last gasp? Or… simply a stomach bug?

My husband is doing telephone visits today and said he’s hearing from more COVID patients than ever.

The coronavirus is going to make me nuts, I swear.

And with that, I think I’ll throw a chicken in the oven for dinner and go lie down. See you on Sunday — be well and BE CAREFUL OUT THERE.
