The Land of the Living?

Well, I’m back. Sort of. For nearly two weeks, I have been in bed with severe bronchitis and laryngitis. The doctor gave me a z-pack and a codine cough suppressant. Needless to say, the codine did its job and I feel like the calendar skipped two weeks.

I have a voice now, though it’s still weak. I still have a cough, but it’s not nearly what it was. So, for better or for worse, I’m back in the land of the living.

I wish I could say I missed you all, but I didn’t miss a thing. I slept and slept and slept.

I also lost almost ten pounds. Hey, every cloud has a silver lining, right?


Love you all. Thanks for your prayers.

    Sleeping off weight . . . sounds very marketable! So glad you are feeling better!

    I’ve missed you! I’m truly sorry you’ve been so ill. That respiratory stuff has plodded its way through my family, too. PTL I was spared this time.

    I thought my addy had been dropped from your list. My plan was to sign up again today! LOL.

    Welcome back.

    Glad you’re back up and about, my sweet friend! Was getting a little concerned about you. I’ve heard that this crud is hard to shake from more than one source, so take care. Don’t want you to end up with pneumonia.

    That IS a silver lining! Maybe…
    Glad to see you are doing better!

    I FEEL you on the icky summer cold! I’ve been plagued by the same thing for almost 2wks!

    Alas, I still sound like a frog as I can’t take a thing for it (pregnancy). *sniff sniff*

    I’m so glad you are feeling better! Rest is always the very best medicine.

    Welcome back. I’m so glad you are ok. I’ve had the bronchitis thing for 3 weeks now and I still can’t get rid of the cough. This stuff is rough! Take care!

    Hey everyone! Jennifer and Mommy Cracked, so sorry you’ve been sick, too! This stuff is really no fun. E-mail me if you want to have a pity party together. I’ll bring the cough drops. Jennifer, you bring the Kleenex, and MC, if you could arrange for one of those Vick’s vapor steamers, that would be great. 🙂

    As for the weight loss thing, Alyssa, you’re right. I wish I could figure out
    how to market it. Perhaps you’ll have to be the spokesperson, though, since you’re so tall and willowy.

    Jean, Bitsy, Alisa and Pam, thanks so much for the sweet prayers and thoughts.

    Love you all!
