said the cheery nurse as she hooked me up to the drip! Yep, I've been sick, which is my excuse for not posting, not reading anyone else's posts, not doing anything at all actually, except feeling very sorry for myself. After several awful days which don't need description, I had lost so much weight (only fluid of course, nothing useful), my son took me to the local hospital for a day on the drip. What a difference that made to my spirits - I wasn't cured but it gave me the strength to start getting better.
So far today I seem to be way better than yesterday so that has to be a good thing. I don't have the energy to spend more than a few minutes at the computer but I'm making the most of my lying-down-time by designing what will be my Secret Garden.
The real down side has been staying away from the little kids though S has been coming to give me very serious looks (from a safe distance) each time her Dad comes to visit, and she always asks how I am feeling and hopes I'll be well soon. I hope so too because it's spring, the weather is fabulous ( the family were in the pool while I was in hospital!) and there is SO MUCH TO DO.
