It is very easy to lose time, I was reminded of that sharply this week. Tuesday, I picked up a "bug".....I don't remember much about Tuesday night or Wednesday or Wednesday night, Thursday was not much better......but this morning, I had a cup of hot tea and some toast and this evening I reclaim my body.
I am beginning to understand what it means for the immune system to not function fully......several others in my family caught the same bug, they were back on their feet in 24 hours.....I promise, I am not a wuss!
Ha,Ha! and Rick didn't have to put me down, though I bet he thought about it a couple of times.
Losing time, is scary......you realize there are times when there is no control......so today, I walked to the mailbox in the freezing cold.....it felt good to feel the cold north wind, to see sunshine, and blue skies.
Rick had to play a gig without me last night, that has only happened maybe one other time in our life together. But, thanks to our friends Skip (who became the "male Jilda" without makeup) and Jonathan and Diana, the show was a success! They may not let me play with them anymore!
Blackie Bear is happy tonight, we are back in our routine, sitting in the office, me at the computer, while
he guards me from the other dogs. He has been my big black shadow, always near, keeping his best eye on me.
I have lost almost a week.....I can't get it back.....and I am lucky, it could be so much worse.
I thank you all for your kindness, your love and healing energies.....I cried when I read your notes today. I am grateful.....in the scheme of things, a week isn't much.....and there are always lessons to be learned.
