Speaking of Doctors...

Well HELLO my dear friends!!

here I am
back in the land of the living...
almost...



I have been in bed for the last 3 days
fighting a cold/flu type bug
he snuck up on me last Thursday
(the lack of sleep did not help I fear)
but did not knock me to the ground until Sunday

oh he is a nasty little critter  :(

but to the doctor's this morning
medication for sinus infection
it will be back to work tomorrow

six pounds lost
copious amounts of tea drank
3 boxes of kleenex used
20+ hours of movies watched

and with too many hours of
daytime television watched
comes the confirmation that Dr. Oz
is a bit of a quack...
(alas I suspected as much)

now...
on to more productive things...

back to the couch
ipad in hand
tea and Banjo by my side
to spend the day
reading and catching up
with my lovely blog peeps...

xo Catherine

BeadedTail said...

Hope you get well soon! Is it bad if I thought it's not so terrible getting sick if I could lose 6 lbs? lol

Kea said...

Glad you're on the mend; the boys send their purrs. :-)

I don't want to be that sick, even to lose a few extra pounds. LOL.

Выздоравливайте! и берегите себя.

Hope you are soon completely well.

Terra said...

I hope you are completely well soon, that sounds like an ordeal, and you made an intriguing comment about Dr. Ox.

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

Hope you're on the mend... although relaxing watching movies with Banjo at your side sounds like a great way to get well.

so sorry to hear you were sick, and glad to hear you are on the mend.

I had to stop watching Dr. Oz a while ago.

Heather said...

So glad you are on the mend, no fun being so sick you end up losing weight, been there done that and don't want to visit there again! So, what's with Dr. Oz, never watched him before but saw him on Oprah a week or so again, new book out, thought it might be interesting... please do tell! Cheers~

Betsy Adams said...

Oh My... So sorry you have been sick, Catherine. That is NO FUN at all. BUT--I'm sure that you had good caregivers --including Banjo...

Take care and don't plug back into life too quickly...

Hugs and Prayers,
Betsy

Linens and Royals said...

I'm sure you had Nurse Banjo to help you through such a torrid time and bring the tea and tissues. Get well soon. X

Susan said...

6 lbs? It's not fair I tell ya, I haven't lost any weight and I'm sick too! :) Get well my friend! Tea? uh well maybe ginger tea.

Sandra said...

you poor thing, sick and having to watch doc oz... day time TV is not a thing i love for sure. hope you are feeling much better soon and don't require kleenex for a long time

Hot Rocks said...

Oh dear...sorry to hear that you are under the weather. I hear that is a nasty flu going around. Glad I got my flu shot this year. The only nice thing about being sick, is watching all those movies and TV shows, snuggled up on the couch!

Carolynn Anctil said...

Oh no! Not you too! I'm starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel today, thank goodness. My dog is going stir crazy and I'm getting bored to death - we don't have tv so it's books & magazines for this invalid, when I have enough energy to turn the pages. Love the pretty pink flower.

Brian said...

I sure hope you feel better and that evil bug leaves you alone!

Chatty Crone said...

I hope you stay on the mend!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Sorry to hear you have been sick but glad you are feeling better. The last time I was sick I discovered the horror of daytime tv. I think it helped me to recover faster. LOL!

Jen said...

Oh, I'm SO sorry you've been sick! I hope you are well on the mend by now.

There's some stuff called "Airborne" that all the teachers around here take when they start feeling sickly; also Echinacea (sp?) can help give your immune system a boost when you need it most (to hopefully avert disaster).

I have to say, except for the cold part, an iPad, cup of tea, and a Banjo sound like a pretty good deal ;o) Horsey hugs to you girl!

Laurie said...

I'm glad you're beginning to feel better Catherine, it seems everyone is being bitten by the same bug. Isn't it nice having Banjo by your side? What a sweetie!

Eileen said...

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well but glad to hear you're feeling better!

Welcome back!

Lin said...

Oh, you poor thing! I hope you are feeling better soon.

As nice as "couch time" is, it's no fun when you are sick. :(

Becca said...

Sorry to hear you've been sick...wow, I'd sure be happy if I lost 6lbs though! Lol... take care...

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Sorry you haven't been well. :( I've been on antibiotics three times since Christmas. I'm just getting back on line and finally feeling close to "normal."

I watch Dr. Oz. Some of the stuff he says is helpful...but if one took all the supplements he suggested you wouldn't have time to do anything else. The best thing I have gotten from him is having a bit of peppermint extract each day. I have it in sugar free hot chocolate each evening and have not had acid reflux since I started doing it.

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

That is one knock you down, and keep you out of it flu...hope that you are much better soon.

It's been going around a lot.

Take good care of yourself, and get better soon.

Jen

Tamago said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry you were sick. It's nice to lose six pounds but of course not in this way...must have been so hard :-(
Glad you are better now!

The Smiths said...

Hope you are feeling better soon.
Stay well, warm and rested =)

Madge Bloom said...

Glad you're on the road to recovery... I agree about Dr. Oz... he endorses way too much stuff on his show...

SweetMarie said...

I'm so happy you're feeling better! I sure hope you have a good sleep schedule again. :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
Especially with Banjo at your side it will work; their fur gives you special warmth and they radiate LOVE.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

julochka said...

Glad to hear you are on the mend! Agree about too much tv ... and Dr. Oz which sort of saddens me.

Pantherka said...

I wish you a speedy recovery!
Greetings.

Linda R said...

I do hope you are feeling better my friend. That is no fun at all. I have not up to par myself. Not sick but I had some skin cancer removed which has had me on the couch for 2 days. YIKES.. But I am feeling a bit better today.

Hugs~

Forever Foster said...

Oh dear! The three humans in this house have the flu too, it is not fun AT ALL! We hope you're well on the way to recovery x
