Mardi Gras 2008

"Laissez le bon rouleau de temps."
(Let the good times roll.)

I had planned a nice little post that would include some Mardi Gras history and facts. I had done my research and it is all saved in my documents, but it just isn't going to happen this year. It seems as if I have caught some sort of stomach bug. I was up all night with it and a 101.8 temp. Needless to say I have been sleeping on and off all day today. JD is a wonderful nurse, seeing to it that I have everything I need and waking me up at 2 hour intervals so I can check my blood sugar readings. I am taking my insulin and meds, but not able to hold anything down but popcycles and 7up so I need to watch those numbers. It frustrates him when I am not well that there really isn't much he can do for me. He wants to "FIX" me, but most times there just isn't any fixes available. It is just a matter of letting it run its course.
It may be a while before I am feeling well enough to post again. Until then, I will come by and visit as I feel up to it......
Blessings my friends!

Jo - Hope you're feeling better soon. Keep watching your BS's.

I hope you're feeling better real soon so you can join us as a newly inducted member of the Baby Boomer Diva Web of Fame. You sound like like you definitely belong there!!! We have doctors in our Diva Nation community although they can't check your blood level over the computer.

We share something else in common--in addition to the Boomer Diva thing. You were born and raised in Ohio and so was I. I went to school in Southern OH---Athens.

Bless your heart!
My Hubby is on his way home from work as I type this...he's been under the weather for days but now he is feeling weak and feverish...I feel a doctor visit in the offing!

Get well soon!!
I'll miss you until then!

Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well at all!! There is a nasty bug going around here too and I'm hoping it doesn't find me! lol Thinking of you and hoping you get well real soon! xox

Sorry to hear you're sick--man, that must be an interesting juggling act, what with your blood sugar to be watched and already have aches and pains from fibro. Dang! My hubby is the same way, wants to fix me. If only we were cars or something, right? ;-)

Feel better soon!!

Jo, I hope you feel better real soon. Lots of people are sick up here, too. Take care -- hope JD doesn't get it.

Take care of yourself. :-)
