I was in bed by midnight, again, last night, but, I woke up around 1:45 a.m., feeling ill. I thought I might be having a fever and checked my temperature, but, it was normal. So, I don't know what it was. But, I couldn't fall asleep for awhile after that. Then, I slept in until past 9:00 a.m. A certain kitty meowing for his breakfast woke me up! Later, I noticed he had thrown up some of his dry food under the dining table - this is the first time he's thrown up since I took him to the vet. I am keeping track of it to see how often it occurs, so I can tell the vet during our next appointment (supposed to be a symptom of hyperthyroidism).
Although I got up and had tea, etc., I felt really tired, so I lay down and took a nap! I got up after 1:00 p.m., thinking I should eat something. I warmed up some of the milk rice I had made yesterday, some leftover beef curry, and the onion sambol and had that for brunch (breakfast had been a cup of tea).
Then, I brought in the trash cans and the mail, which was mostly grocery ads. I went through them, quickly, and recycled most of them.
Later in the evening, I watched news and knitted. Friend R called and we chatted for a bit. When my daughter called, I started telling her that I felt I was very unproductive, today, and she told me that I was resting and recovering. That made me feel better!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Not having a fever
- Being able to take it easy and rest and recover
- My daughter
- Friend R calling to check on me
- Dancer keeping me company
Tomorrow, I hope to be able to put water to the front garden and go for my blood test.
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
Just rest. It's all I've done for three days and at last I'm feeling a bit better. Hope the cat is OK. Clearing up cat vomit isn't funReplyDelete
Thank you, Angela. Glad to read that you are feeling a bit better, yourself. Yes, Dancer is OK.Delete
Did you get a flu shot?ReplyDelete
Yes, I did, back in October. I'm glad I did, too, because, otherwise, I'd have thought I was having the flu.Delete
Your daughter was right. Resting and recovering was the most productive thing you could have done. What are you knitting these days?ReplyDelete
She is a wise young woman, isn't she? I'm knitting a sweater for myself. Working on the sleeves.Delete
You're obviously needing the naps so don't feel guilty about it. Just listen to your body and take it easy. Hope Dancer is okay.ReplyDelete
Yes, I slept in, today, too. Dancer is doing well, too. How are you feeling? Hope you are feeling better.Delete
I'm glad you were able to rest.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I too feel not productive, even when my body needs a rest.
On Tuesday I did cooking, cleaning the fridge and crocheting.
And I watched some murder mysteries on YouTube, which I don't recommend because I got really scared and checked all closets and even under the bed before I went to sleep. :)
Thank you, Nil. Sounds like you had a good day. I shall be sure not to watch any murder mysteries! :oDelete
Your daughter sounds sweet. Hope the knitting is going well.ReplyDelete
I like to think she is. :) The knitting is coming along well - half way through the first sleeve.Delete
all hopes you can rest and feel completely well soon- i just emailed you some updates concerning my daughters- best of holiday wishes to you and your sweet girl-ReplyDelete
Thank you, Barb. I have just replied to your email. (((HUGS))) Please know that I am keeping you and your family in my prayers for good health and healing.Delete
Thank you for the holiday wishes. I wish the same for you and yours.
You're probably sleeping like that because of not feeling well. I tend to find my sleep patterns all over the place when I'm not feeling good. I suppose it's our body's way of telling us that rest is needed!ReplyDelete
Yes, you're right. I managed to sleep in, today, and that was helpful. I napped a little bit in the evening, too!Delete
