Pass the Kleenex Please



Hello my friends, I do hope you all enjoyed bringing in the New Year! Well mine started well enough with a movie and Chinese Food but Saturday (I think) I woke up feeling horrible.....nothing serious compared to what some of my village friends are going through right now. Please know I am well enough to remember you all in my prayers.

The common cold has me feeling miserable. I am freezing all the time that is when I am awake. I am back on my favorite medication.....ta da....antibiotics for my swollen glands and cough syrup for my cough. Dr. John says I will be well again in 5 days.......I am holding him to his word.

I am able to read my favorite blogs between naps and I will be around to visit, I will post something more suitable soon I promise.

In the meantime God Bless and many hugs.......:-)

RNSANE said...

Oh, Bernie, so you already have your first cold of the New Year! Too much overdoing it, perhaps, in ending the old. Take care of yourself, dear one!!

Eternally Distracted said...

Arghhhhh Bernie. I truly hope that you feel better soon. Take advantage - lie in bed all day, watch rubbish on the television, read blogs and relaxxxxxx

Granny on the Web said...

Oh hugs and tissues on offer! Hope you are soon rid of the sniffles. Sleep and fluids is the usual cure for myself when I have the dreaded cold germs.
Hope to see you back soon.

Love Granny

Maybe this is the same virus I had before Christmas? I've since been on two rounds of antibiotics and still have a plugged ear. Must call the doc in the morning.

Liz said...

Oh Bernie I hope you're feeling better soon. I'm holding Dr John to his word too :0)
Hope you feel warmer today x

Valerie said...

Oooh poor Bernie. I am so sorry you have gone down with a cold. It's not a good way to start the year, is it? Don't worry about blogging, just you concentrate on getting well. I'm immune to your germs so I'm sending lots of remedial hugs. Keep warm.

Bernie... I am positive that you are one of the sweetest ladies I know. Please look after yourself and get better soon.

I am going to continue blogging but am restricting the amount of time I spend on the net. Too much surfing. Am going to try 1/2 hour n the morning and 1/2 hour at night and see how that goes.

Take care.

Wendy

Wander to the Wayside said...

Sorry you're feeling bad, Bernie, but at least you waited til after Christmas and the beginning of the new year so that you didn't have to miss all the festivities! Get well soon...

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...hope you had a restful night and wish I could drop in with some hot soup! Several members of my family have had head colds, mostly the teenagers...you must be young at heart Bernie! Hope you start feeling better right away, without side effects from the antibiotics.
Stay warm by your fireplace and relax with a good book, that's really what colds are for, you know!
Love,
Wanda

Hi Bernie-

Oh my goodness - you take good care my friend. And, guess what? I woke this morning with a head cold!!! So we can pass the tissues back and forth, drink tea together, watch girlie movies :-) and keep the fire crackling. Let's both be all better in five days or less.

quieten said...

Bernie, what a crummy way to start the New Year. Hopefully this will get all the nasties out of your system and this will be the only cold bug you get for the whole year!
Please feel better soon and I'm going to hold Dr.John to that 5-day limit as well!!!
Huggz,
Quieten

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Bernie sweetie...
I'm handing you a box of tissues, and here in my other hand is a glass of juice (you need a little vitamin C), I've placed a little kiss on your forehead and a hug around your neck.

Now do you feel better? I hope so. I am sending up a few prayers for you sweetie. Get better soon, and enjoy a few books or a movie while you are resting.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

Oh Jesus! It is just so cold there! I sneeked at the next post, and I know you're better now, but I am so sorry I didn't get here on time to wish you well! But do I include each of my blogger friends in my prayers. Please take care of yourself Bernie. And don't venture out too long if possible. Stay warm and cozy!

Bernie said...

Stillness, yes it has been so cold here, -27 this morning. One would think the cold would kill all the germs.......:-0) Hugs

The Retired One said...

Oh NO, Bernie! I was wondering when you weren't posting like usual..I had a feeling you weren't well.
Just rest as much as possible and like they say, drink lots of fluids to stay hydrated.
And if your fever goes up, call the Dr.back. PROMISE??????
You are in my prayers.
Luv to you....
