It really kind of all started when dad got sick. Then, on Sunday afternoon we took my youngest brother to the airport. I hated to see him go and so did dad, it makes me sad and, dare I say it, lonely too. It's not that Dad and I don't get along, we do, but I know he misses the company of males.
My brother Kurt arrived home in Indianapolis around 11:30pm which is 9:30pm Arizona time. He'd had a bit of turbulence getting into Indy and it made him a bit queasy which is unusual for him but he didn't think much about it. Funny thing was, I was starting to feel 'queasy' about the same time!
By the time I got in bed, I was full bore sick. I don't ever remember being so sick and feeling so cold and hurting all over so fast. At one point I thought I was going to pass out in the bathroom and all I could think about was, I can't be sick I have to take care of dad. That and he can't help me if I pass out nor would he even know!. It was a bit frightening actually. Since I had a flu shot, I assumed that maybe I had food poisoning especially when I didn't remember dad saying he was cold or hurting when he was sick.
Some how I made it through the night and felt a little better the next morning. I was able to get dad's breakfast and meds and deal with the three, yes three, dogs that I also happen to be boarding at the same time! I sent my brother a text saying I hope he didn't get sick but didn't think he would as I 'thought' I had food poisoning from something that I knew he hadn't eaten. Oddly I never heard back from Kurt until late last night when he called.
He hadn't gotten the text I sent because he'd been home in bed sick all day with the same thing I had. Said he'd never hurt so bad and been so cold either! Kurt had gotten a flu shot several months ago as well. So much for flu shots I guess!
Thank goodness the worst part passed fairly quickly for all but I just can't seem to get fully back into the swing of things. I have so much to do. I am supposed to be making homemade dog biscuits as well as some Christmas dog bling for collars and leashes to sell at our community craft fair on Saturday.
I am going to try and pull myself together and get something done, but I feel like I'd rather do what two of my boarders are doing in the picture below!!!
Hmmmmm.........do I or don't I......that is the question!
