A week has passed, and although today I have been out of bed for several hours, I have not yet fully recovered. When I finish this post I plan to return to a horizontal position under my doona, but I am making progress.
I didn't even leave the house for the first four days, during which time I had some lovely ladies providing assistance, demonstrating love through practical care.
My thanks today go out to my mum, my sister and my fiance, and as I am reminded of Paul's injunction to give thanks to God in all circumstances, I also express my gratitude to Him. I'm not thanking him for the man flu which kept me home from work, stuck in bed, and generally unproductive (a condition I detest) for a week, but I am alive, and I am not alone.
Congratulations on surviving man flu - as my husband often tells me when he is stricken with it - far worse than anything known to womanhood and the only known cure watching sport on TV being brought cups of tea!! Hopefully, next week you will be able to celebrate a return to the normality of life :)ReplyDelete

Thanks. Your husband's remedy for man flu is tried and true. Yes, I hope to get back to normal - whatever normal is.Delete
I hope you feel better soon. My husband has many of the same problems I do (severe allergies, swollen feet/ankles, back problems), yet I keep just working while he visits doctor after doctor and lays on the couch like an invalid, watching TV. What's up with that? LOL!ReplyDelete
Men are hopeless with illness Lexa. Really most of act like big babies when we are sick.Delete
Flus are horrible, but glad to hear you're beating it. Here's to running around again soon.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the flu. I hope you've made your recovery and are back to normal busyness.ReplyDelete
Thank you, and thanks for visiting Square Pegs and taking the time to comment.Delete
Oh, man I can really relate since I had a bad case of the flu before. Sure, it was not enjoyable falling prey to man flu, but the love and constant care from my family made it bearable. Glad you are feeling better, and back on your feet. And here's to hoping we never go through the flu again!ReplyDelete
