I finally gave in yesterday and made an appointment at the hospital’s Express Care Center. I can see the hospital from our front door, but I had to drive 7 miles/15 minutes to get to their nearest Express Care Center in the nearby small city. Thankfully they have online appointment making, so when I finally decided to go (at 4:00 AM), and I could schedule their first available appointment – 8:30. I got right in, got seen right away, and got a diagnosis with some meds. It’s a sinus infection. Seriously? Given the way I was feeling yesterday morning (sneezing, sniffling [it was like someone had a hose in my nose – TMI?], coughing, achey, feverish), I thought sure that I had the flu - at the least. Nope, “just” a sinus infection. Now, I’ve had my share of sinus infections in the past, and I’ve never felt anywhere close to as lousy as I’ve felt with this one. I wonder if this is just another lovely aspect of growing older?
They assured me that I’d start to feel better after a couple of days’ worth of antibiotics … and I sure hope so. But at least there’s a little hope … I actually slept last night … an hour and a half in the recliner while “watching” the hockey game and 8+ hours in bed. Of course, that could have been a result of lack of sleep the last couple of nights (a total of 7-8 hours Tuesday and Wednesday nights) … I might have just “passed out” due to lack of sleep (who can sleep when they can’t breathe and can’t stop coughing, I ask). Hopefully another good night’s sleep tonight will help almost as much as the antibiotics, wouldn’t you think?
I got more progress made on T#3’s quilt … not as much as I probably would have had I been feeling my best, but progress is progress. I’ve finished all the blocks, have marked the borders and have quilted almost half of one of the 4 borders. I’d like to have all the quilting done by the end of the weekend, but I suspect I’ll be finishing this up next week. Even so, I should have this finished more quickly than I thought I would, considering all of life’s interruptions … I started quilting on January 26.
The fat quarter bundles I ordered last week arrived yesterday. Each little bundle is approximately 3”x3”x3” … and tied with a pretty bow. Aren’t they adorable?
And don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead tomorrow evening!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
