I AM ALIVE....BARELY

Sick In Bed Hi there all!! Thanks for all the nice emails checking up on me - I am doing a lot better than I have been these last seven days. See, my daughter got sick, then my son, then me....and we have ALL had the dreaded H1N1 virus aka the Swine Flu. Yep, I am here to tell ya that it is NOT a fun flu at all!! High fevers for days, and total misery for all of it!! I am definitely on the mend now as my fever finally broke yesterday afternoon, but I am still very tired and weak so I guess maybe in another few days I should be feeling much better! I have had to cancel two workshops and miss lots of work, but my kiddos are doing a LOT better and are back in school - seems I am the one who is lagging....must be my old age, lol! Seriously though, if you have the flu, get checked out because this is no joke - I am a very healthy person and it knocked me flat on my rear! I hope to get back to stamping this week as I do miss it...now - a few days ago I could care less about stamping - so you know I was sick!! Thanks for checking in on me - you all are the best!!

{{{Alex}}} sending big hugs your way! This H1N1 is such a big thing right now and I've known someone who had it last June and it wasn't fun for them either. Take care of yourself and I'm glad to hear you are on the mend!

I'm glad you are feeling better... I find that with kids we are sicker because we take care of them first and then we are tired and get the bug harder...

Oh NO! I hope you feel like yourself soon! I am terrified of H1N1 with the kids and a new baby, so every time I hear of someone else I "know" who has it, it makes it even closer to home! Sending you big hugs!
