Wow, look how long it’s been since I did a post!! I want to apologize for being absent! I took a sinus infection on the 16th of September and was out of work for a whole week. I’m still only running on 60% power and get tired easy. I seem to take these things at least once a year and I’m so tired of it. We can’t find one trigger that brings them on but I sure wish they would go away FOREVER!! The pressure in my face this time was unreal and caused a headache that lasted for four days. I would hold both of my hands on top of my head when I coughed to keep the top from blowing off. The doctor put me on 1000 mgs of amoxicillin on Wednesday the 19th twice a day for ten days and I was using Maximum Strength Mucinex for the congestion but had a really bad reaction to it on Sunday evening. I don’t think I’ll be taking it again. Hot wet compresses on my face helped at times and the heating pad on top of my head helped the headache at times. I used a half a bottle of saline solution up my nose. Nothing seemed to help! I am such a wimp when it comes to this stuff and I never seem to take a mild case! I used two whole rolls of toilet paper and two large boxes of Puffs tissues the first two days of the mess. I was scared to death it was going to cause what would be my SECOND case of vertigo and this was my reasoning for going to the doctor early! VERTIGO IS A MEAN TRICK ON THE BODY AND SOUL!!!
Anyway, I’m back to work and feeling better. I can’t wait to go out on the farm to see the new babies. I’m looking forward to bow season and I’m hoping to start a new quilt this weekend. The chestnuts are falling, the English walnuts have all fell, the black walnuts are falling, the pears are falling and the apples are falling.
Yesterday when I got home the chickens had made a huge mess in the yard (because someone left the gate open) and I have a bunch of mulch to rake back around the roses and flower gardens. I think hubby was ready to butcher all of them!!!
Of course, it didn’t help that while he was working with a neighbor to cut corn that the cows decided to widen a missed hole in the fence and now the fall and winter herds are all together. Hopefully, we’ll get them all separated this weekend. I REALLY think it’s time for hubby to take a weeks vacation with friends away from the farm!! He doesn’t do well when I get sick and everything aggravates him ten times worse.
Everyone stay well and I’m back with more stories and pictures!!
