After a reasonably good night’s sleep—in bed—I awakened at 6:15 with a coughing fit. I shifted to the glider. Just now (8:20) I started preparing coffee. Albeit slow, I’m moving.
Check back because I’ll add information as the day goes by.
9:00 AM: I have not had an appetite but decided to eat a slice of toast with my coffee. I vomited it up about ten minutes later. Almost two weeks of sickness and that’s the first time I’ve vomited. (I want to document my symptoms because I have not found a website that tells the reader what to expect. I haven’t received a report regarding the test on Monday.)
11:00 AM: Regrettably, I’m going backward!!
2:00 PM: I am so weary of my “comfortable chair” (which has ceased to be comfortable). I shifted to the computer chair and did a little genealogy. I had my head propped on my left arm and hand. I wished to stay at the computer but was forced to cuddle under the Slanket, in my glider. ~~ One-by-one, I clicked the TV channels until I found “Magnolia“(at 161). That is the new TV channel for Chip and Joanna Gaines—and they are famous entrepreneurs here in Waco, Texas. They actually live in Crawford, Texas, and are near-neighbors to former President George and Laura Bush.
4:45 PM: I was asleep in my glider when I heard a knock on the door. “Mr. Red,” owner-manager of this RV Park, was at the door with his hands full. “Hurry, hurry, this is scalding hot.” I took the containers and he pushed a package inside. “What’s this? I haven’t ordered anything.” He excused himself saying “I’ve been working all day; I’m going home.” (Working in the cold and rain.) It was only after delicious Egg Drop Soup and rice, I opened the package and now I have a new footstool. ~~~ I am so thankful for kind, considerate, thoughtful, generous friends!! SINCERE THANKS, Deb!!
Yesterday, “Mr. Red” did grocery shopping (for himself) and included a half-gallon of ice cream for Lorraine. Ice cream is so soothing on my raw throat.
Last night (dark outside), a neighbor lady brought two small containers of homemade soup. I enjoyed her lentil soup for lunch. ~~~~ Frequently, I tell people that I am living in “a little corner of Heaven.” I moved here two years and eight days ago. How blessed I am that God my Heavenly Father arranged my move from Livingston to Waco.
10:00 AM “the next day.” Yesterday, I failed to add a reference to a friend—in Kansas. She offered to come and “take care of me.” Honestly, it was more than an “offer” because she insisted she would come. I argued that “I’ll be OK.”
