bed rest, workshop, & 14 cows

I'm back (cough cough)
and boy am I glad!!!
This all started 3 weeks ago when bub got a couple of viruses
and he shared them with me!!!
2 weeks ago
I had fever and a cough
went to the dr
it is a virus let it run its course (cough cough)
use your inhaler, get some over the counter cough med, Tylenol to break fever, and use the neti pot
then 3 days later I was coughing more and more and not able to sleep (cough cough)
back to the dr still with fever
bronchitis... strict bed rest for 2 days
on antibiotics, cough syrup with codeine (knocks me out ZZZZZZ), and Tylenol for fever oh and continue to use the neti pot
I missed both days of our state testing
you know I was sick if I missed STATE TESTING
thank God for great friends and coworkers that covered for me
then feeling better I returned to school on Thursday
half day only
scratchy throat and sore tongue
figured it was because of my excessive cough drop sucking
woke up yesterday
can't talk... super sore throat
go to dr AGAIN
and I won't go into details but I have a wonderful new problem
it is a result of me not sucking my inhaler in deep enough
BUT all in all besides the new meds that make me want to gag and give me a yucky tummy I am
feeling 80% better!!!
YAY me (cough cough)
I only cough like once an hour now
haven't had fever for awhile
and today I went to a workshop!!!
I felt good!!!
plus I am now just a stomach flu away from my goal wt.
not really but I have lost like 15 pounds

as you can tell the workshop focused on expository
I found a new book I want

it is a great literary picture book that beautifully tells the story of the 14 Cows
it is a perfect book for a paired reading with an expository excerpt about the same thing
