But I Am Better Now
In the last episode you read that I hurt my knee and could hardly walk. My poor son was so sick.
Well it got worse. I caught whatever it is that he has. It seems to be some sort of respiratory thing. It is not a cold because the noses weren't runnuing.
So here we were both of us miserable and I could not walk. We mostly stayed in our rooms. I would get up long enough to grab a bottle of water and go back to my room. I think my son did the same.
Coughing was the major activity of the day. I slept for a while then watched TV until I went to sleep again.
I was so tired of being in my room. I forced myself to get up and hobble to the living room just to get out of that room.
Neither of us was eating. Food sounded awful. I lost about 12 pounds. My son says he has lost close to twenty.
Now that I have whined and complained I can tell you that I feel much better. My knee is still sore but I can walk comfortably without the cane. My cough is almost gone. My appetite is improving.
My son is still sick but he has begun to eat. I think as he is able to eat more than a couple of bites of a tortilla he will feel immensely better.
By the weekend I should be completely well. Hopefully my son will be close behind.
I will try to write a happy post next time.
