Merry (cough cough) Christmas

Merry (cough cough) Christmas

I hope that Christmas was a joyous time with your family and friends. I look forward to Christmas every year as my 2 Daughters and I celebrate with different activities and the love of being together for a few days. This year fpr me??? Not so good. The ONLY saving grace was knowing they were in the house! Oh, I know, poor poor Duff. Whatever that nasty BUG out there is seemed to want to plant itself right in to me! WOW!!!! I’ve never been so sick@! It started Sunday afternoon. I felt the tickle in my throat and thought “oh S**T, this isn’t going to happen now?? Moving to Monday morning about 2am. My first of MANY “trips” to the other room!!!! Finally crawled out of bed about 7am Monday and was hard to stand, hard to even see. My entire body ached and I stood and shook. Back to bed. Just hearing my girls out in the rest of the house laughing and having fun without me killed me. ALL DAY MONDAY was torture. The flu, sinus infection, 101.8 fever. I was ready to beg them to come in and tell me this was just a dream. Tuesday morning, waking up every 15 minutes. Looked at the clock and it was 11pm. Fell asleep and woke up again thinking it was maybe 5am and it was 11:08pm!!!! WHAT?!?!??! Finally at about 2:30 I woke up and thought the girls threw a bucket of water on me. I was SOAKED! Finally the fever broke!!!! I did it…and without antibiotics! My best medicine was fighting this off knowing my girls were in the house. The splitting headache from the sinus infection is the worst on top of being nauseous. Was able to sit in the recliner Christmas morning at 9 and at least spend the day there. Fever gone but still weak. Yes…certainly not my favorite Christmas. My even be my worst but through all that my girls were there for me. Helping me with many things. You got the love of family and you’re the richest man in the world! I know I am! Happy New Year!!

What a weekend!

WOW!  It was somewhat expected on Friday July 19 but not quite as bad as it got.  WRLO was knocked off the air at about 8pm.  The storm is one of the worst the Public Service workers have seen in 20 years.  As of Monday July 22 many people in the Elcho/Summit Lake areas are…read more »
