Please send all the good thoughts you can. It sounds as though he is having a rough time of it. Thank you.
I am not spending much time on my computer as I have been and still an struggerling with a really really heavy cold, I have been taking over the counter meds for this,but, it aint shifting.
On friday I felt so rotten that I had to contact my GP, turns out that this dam cold has also turned into a chest infection and I have been coughing like mad and weezing like a dirty old man who has just got off with a dolly bird(this maybe too much of an English expression so I will say a good looking young woman who maybe in her early 20's to mid 20's when the old man is around 70+)
so since Friday I have been taking anti biotics to try and clear up the chest infection and have been given an inhaler to take 2 puss when I need to each time so I can breath or clear my airways to breath a bit better.
yep it's a good cold that will not except that the meds are a way of serving an eviction notice and telling the cold & chest infection to go and leave. a lot of people are getting heavey colds here at the moment. I am begingingg to feel that I have in the past had flue that was easier to shift than this cold & chest infection, but, maybe getting this so soon after major surgery my body just isn't at the moment able to fight this like maybe it could of done if I had not hasd major surgery on 15th October. It's also uncomfortable when I cough as I now have a scar from surgery going(across the front) from one side of my chest to the other side.
but Gerda is being a real sweet heart and staying close by me. she is now sleeping all night and also in the day time when I need to rest or nap on my bed by my side. she has some times had a puzzed look on her face when I have been sneezing or coughing &tried to lick my nose and face to I think in her way make me feel better. Also the other morning I thinnk I got the bigest indication that the 2cats may of finally excepted Gerda living her as I woke up & both cats were curled up together near to where my feet were & they were alseep, Gerda was asleep and snoring on top of the bed covers by my side....I did feel really happy and had a big grin on my face even though I woke up feeling rough.
there has been some days when I have felt rough and light headed with this & I just couldn't summon up what it would take to get onto my wheelchair scooter and take Gerda for a walk. I would though have toy here that she could play with and she did do what she needed to do in the garded/small yard. I would feel bad and make an extra effort the next day & take her out for about 1 hour. OK some thimes it took me to gone 4 in the afternoon to summon up enought to take her out, but, I am manageing & I am sure Gerda will forgive me fgor not taking her out every day.
sorry I have written loads and far too much information here.
I have missed every one & when I do feel a bit betteer I will be here and posting likethe saying goes 'normal service will be resumed as soon as posible'.
