A better day today

September 12, 2017 Tuesday

I slept well and woke up rested again.  NyQuil sure does help but I know I’ll have to quit using it in a couple more days.  It’s still difficult to go to sleep without it since I wheeze every breathe when I’m stretched out going to sleep.  Maybe that will change in a few days, I hope.

I had breakfast and then drove to Ringgold to meet with the Quilt Lady and some friends.  She returns our quilted quilts and picks up new ones once a month and it’s always wonderful to see the other girls and to view the quilts.  My friends do such good work making beautiful quilts.

After that, I came home and had lunch – a baked potato with pork bbq on it.  It was good. After that, I took a nap, a rather long nap.  I seem to do a lot of that lately.  Hopefully in a few days I will feel better and I will make an effort to get some exercise, something I have certainly not been doing.  I did also watch a lot of Fixer Upper today – that’s just a nice show to watch.

I had supper, pork chops and black eyed peas, and then I’ve just lazed around this evening.  It’s been a really lazy, dazy day today and that’s okay with me.

I’ve felt fairly well today except for the creepy, crawly feelings on my face and scalp and the strange feelings in my mouth, and the diarrhea that never really seems to go away.  But still this is much better than the previous two days. Maybe the worst is over for this round.  Time will tell.
