ALIVE!

This morning, it is official. We are all in recovery. What a week of hell it was! Even yesterday we were all worn out and sick as dogs. All of us are still coughing... but I took a shower and realized that for the first time in over a week my skin didn't hurt when the shower touched it. I hooped a bit this morning and didn't feel like I was going to die. I can read for more than 10 seconds before my eyes start hurting. I slept last night. In fact, I slept like the dead. I remember waking up a couple times, but for minutes, not the hour that has been usual for the last 8 days. Everyone else is ready to leave the house... Don and I are still feeling ok with quarantine... but the kids are going crazy. So we may even get out today. We have watched every single movie in our limited selection and I even ventured out on Wed to the library for new videos for Logan (which completely wore me out and I was even more sick the next day). Wow. Long week. But so thankful that it is over!

Thanks ladies... I am MORE than done with being sick. I am tired of being sick. Hopefully you are right and this is the last any of us bring home this year... that would be nice. But I would settle just for a couple of months off. ;)
