Every year I have taken my flu vaccine and watched while other people suffered.
Tuesday my muscles started hurting and I chalked it up to my slip and slide fall on Sunday. No big deal.
Wednesday morning at 4 o'clock I woke feeling like a semi had run over my body and rolled back and forth over it to seal the deal. I was also having chills and running a fever. Uh oh apparently not the fall.
By 9 that morning I was at the doctor's office getting a prescription for Tamiflu.
Fortunately, although I am definitely not feeling well, this bout with the flu is much better than the one 20 years ago. I think the vaccine and the Tamiflu have kept it to a mild roar.
While I have been housebound for the last few days fighting cabin fever, I have been thinking about spring and summer and flowers.
Thus the theme for the photos and while I continue to recuperate I am going to focus on flowers.
