January 20th, 2017 Progress
I can laugh at myself really well. I admit it, I'm a big crybaby man-child when it comes to being sick. Things are starting to get remarkably better. The last six hours or so, I actually stopped pouting! This is progress!
My son-in-law came over today to help me with a store run. I put on the mask. I needed propane for my outdoor patio grill. I use it a lot! I've missed it lately! Thank you, Kenneth Lee!
I'm making a conscious effort to spare you the details of this flu experience. It's almost over. I have four remaining doses of the Tamiflu.
My downstairs neighbor is the sweetest 83-year-old woman on the planet. She checked on me--wanted to know if she could bring me anything. Awe... she's truly the best. She offered to make a trip to Braums Ice Cream store to get me a chocolate shake. I replied, "Oh Jessica, no, thank you, really I'll be fine. I appreciate the offer. That's very nice of you!" I assured her I was feeling better--and she told me to let her know if I needed anything at all--or if I change my mind on the ice cream offer. Jessica doesn't know about me and ice cream. And that's okay, I wouldn't explain it to her because it's not necessary. It was just one of the sweetest offers ever, and it warmed my heart. I will be returning the kindness to her any chance I get.
I ate really well today. I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained refined sugar-free. I exceeded my daily water goal by 16oz. And I stayed very well connected with great support friends.
No real news here. Just getting through this stuff. Thank you for stopping by for a few minutes!
