Icky Sickness

I have been sick for almost a week. I started feeling bad Tuesday night and felt bad Wednesday. After church Wednesday I had a temperature of over 100 and had a hard time getting to sleep. Thursday my sore throat kept getting worse and I was coughing more. Early Friday morning we went to a Walk-In clinic and they said I had what is going around here, a sinus infection type thing. I had mucus behind my ear drums and a lot of sinus pressure, the drainage was going down my throat and pulling off tissue causing the awful sore throat. They prescribed me 2 medications and a cough syrup for bedtime. Friday evening around 4:30 I started to feel much better and we even went to an FFA Alumni event, my throat still hurt and my voice was raspy but I felt fine. Saturday morning I woke up at 7:00 and felt great, my voice was still raspy but I felt so much better. I put away dishes, straightened the house, and sewed! But unfortunately yesterday evening I started going downhill and felt awful by bedtime. I was still bad this morning so John David let me sleep instead of going to church (I slept until 11!) Now my nose is stopped up/running (yes it is possible to do both!) my throat is a little sore and I am coughing. Today I have just laid around and taken a nap! I am trying to REST which is hard because I want to cook a good dinner, vacuum the house, blog about my sewing, put everything that is out of place in its proper place but I can't! I am praying that tomorrow I will begin to feel better and that my body will strengthened so I can resume my life, taking care of my husband & my house & blogging!
