Sweet and Pretty...Not me!!

Over the weekend I was still snuffling and coughing like I was at least 100!! The difference to Friday was that I wasn't  like one little pig..I was like all three little pigs and the wolf too!! I was doing the snuffling and snorting of the little pigs like there was three of me...plus I was huffing and puffing like I was going to blow the house down!!

I tried Vick, Olbus Oil, steaming with menthol crystals.....sipping hot chai with honey, ginger and lemon...and so much more!! The result was zilch. By Monday I had well and truly got a wheeze and I felt like I was drowning. The only thing to do was to call the doctor.  I tried to breath and talk at the same time, not something I normally struggle with, lol.  All the huffing and puffing must have made me sound like an elderly frail lady and he told me I needed to come in so he could check me out. When I got there he took a listen ....with a very cold stethoscope.....and prescribed antibiotics for a chest infection. I hope these work, if not they'll need to put me down. I'm a hazard to the healthy!!

Today I'm still feeling rough but don't want to spend too much time lying in bed in case it makes my chest worse....hopefully tomorrow will bring results. Good ones that is!!

Enough of my woes...I need to say thank you for two lovely awards that were passed to me last week. I have been dreadful the last few months in keeping up with these and passing them on. For my past sins, I apologise. I have turned over a new leaf and will deal with these promptly in future, promise!!

Swapna at Crafts and Cooking passed me this extremely chic, very Parissien looking award. It is gorgeous, thank you! I love Crafts and Cooking, the recipes make my mouth water every time I visit...which is most days. Drop by and see for yourself.

I have had so many problems uploading to 4shared this last few months that the download is via Media Fire. I am so sick of spending 20 or 30 attempts

 

Take care and see you soon.

Oh my June I do feel so bad for you. I also apologize for being so late getting by.

But, last week as you know was rough for our family too. So I am paying visits today.

Oh dear, I have had what you are describing and it is dreadful.

But, usually for me after a day or so on an antibiotic I do see improvement.

Congratulations to all of your recipients and congratulations to you!

Hope you have a lovely week this go round!

Hope all is well with you. Haven't seen you for a bit. hugs

Sandy said...

Hope your feeling better. Sounds like you have a bronchitis, a pre-pneumonia. Also sounds like the doctor needed to be called earlier. I say this from experience. I've had the same thing...took forever to feel better. Hubster had it two different times.

Do take care of yourself, and congrats on both your lovely awards.
