I'm lazing around the house. AND I DON'T REALLY HAVE TIME TO!
A bug has brought me down. I think it is bug... It might be my quilting. Is that possible? I spent quite a long time up in the sewing room on Thursday machine quilting. And I was so intensely involved that I didn't have any heat on in the freezing room. And nearly three hours later I had a neck ache.
Now I rarely get stiff shoulders though people ask me often if with all my quilting and knitting and blogging I might not suffer from back aches etc. Nope. Not me!
BUT... on Thursday... Yes... I have stiff shoulders... or a neck ache... I went to the pool hoping to work the kinks out.
By Friday I was worse! But I absolutely HAD to get to the kindergarten Christmas rehearsal practice so I wrapped my neck up tightly and went and did my part. The kindergarten teachers were horrified that I might be feeling low at the Christmas program! Four years ago I missed it entirely because of the flu and they STILL remind me of that year. I hurried home after the rehearsal and went to bed.
But by evening, I was feeling sick to my stomach and Tetsu found me leaning over the bathroom throne. He dragged me to Urgent care where the diagnosis was... Maybe a virus? Maybe the flu? Maybe a cold in the neck from the icy window over our bed? Maybe the result of injury to the neck? I came home with lots of medicine and went back to bed.
Saturday I was better and I DID make it to the Christmas program (wearing one of the dreaded surgical masks I've pooh-poohed about so much. I had to buy a mask at the hospital door the night before just to be allowed IN the hospital!) But it was back to bed afterwards, and I skipped church yesterday too.
I'm now better but not great. And I don't know if I'm under the weather now because of a virus, the flu, a cold in the neck, neck injury or maybe because the medicine is too strong. Sigh. How we take for granted our health when things are going along fine. I guess I'll make another jaunt to the neighborhood doctor and get his opinion.
(I'm hoping it is a virus. Heaven forbid my quilting has anything to do with this!!!)
