January 21st, 2017 That Changes
Today was better. Things are improving. This flu thing is in its final stages, I do believe. I'm still not 100%, but better. After the last few days, I'll take better. There's a lot of people in this area with the same thing. In fact, one business downtown had to shut down because of flu. That's exactly what they wrote on a sign affixed to their door. One question--How do medical professionals keep from getting this stuff? Flu shots, sure--but still, different strains can get around the shot, so I hear. I've never had a flu shot. That changes starting now. I don't think I'll miss the opportunity in the future.
Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained refined sugar-free. I exceeded my daily water goal and I stayed connected with support.
I'm doing okay. Had a good conversation with mom tonight. She enjoyed some wonderful company today. Irene, Allen, Noah and Amber, plus our friends Linda and her husband Lindel stopped by for visits. Mom was in good spirits. Although she's worried about me--and it doesn't matter how many times I say, "Mom, I'm doing fine--I'm getting better," she still worries. "You don't sound like you're feeling better." "I'm fine, mom! I'll see you soon, okay?" She's a worrier. I am too, I get it. But really--other people have it much worse. I've heard horrible things from other's flu experiences.
I'm doing okay!
