Saturday, March 5,
Felt reasonably well considering how I have felt. I didn’t do much around the house-normal stuff like wash the dishes and a load of clothes. I did the books for the month for the church, carried the checkbook, checks I’d written and receipts to the church, filed those and checked out a few things in the office. In fact I was feeling so much better that I planned to go to church on Sunday-and told a few people.
Talked with Marilyn that night. She and her hubby are still really sick-coughing, fever and such. Marilyn has been to the doctor several times since Christmas with this mess.

Woke up around 5 coughing non-stop. Coughed for about an hour, some productive, some I could feel the gunk clinging to the walls of my lungs, refusing to let go. I also felt physically sick again, so I let those who needed to know that I wouldn’t make church, took all my breathing treatments, put a bite of food in my stomach and took my meds and laid down.
Some days I get so discouraged. It’s March. I should be making plans and lists for what I want to take to the T-town market when it opens, hopefully mid April, May at the latest. I should finish cleaning the store so I can get all the jellies and other canned items up there before it gets hot. I can barely manage to wash the dishes and keep the clothes clean, and cook very little, if any. I wonder if this is my new way of life. Is this the beginning of the end? I know God will carry me through whatever I have to face, and most of the time I am confident and secure in that. But some days I just get scared.

Wow, I felt much better when I woke up this morning. Still have that upper, rattley cough, still get tired easily, but I did feel like I might live. Maybe the new med (Doxycycline) is knocking this mess back some. I washed the couch and chair covers, cleaned up the kitchen. I ordered a kit for a child’s cardigan (will try to share the pic later), and started my latest shawl/throw. It’s in shades of purple and is coming along really nicely. The pattern isn’t difficult and it gives me something to do. Doc’s office called after lunch to let me know insurance had approved the Tobramycin (inhaled antibiotic). I called the pharmacy and they will have it in today, March 8. Ana is out of school for spring break, so we will ride down later and get it.

Blaise-the pup-woke us at 4:20 needing to go outside and needing to go NOW. I couldn’t get my eyes open, so thankfully Terry heard her and let her out. Of course Ana didn’t hear her, even though Blaise sleeps in her room. Go figure.
