Thanksgiving cold

Thanksgiving cold

I went out for Thanksgiving. I went home, my childhood home. I haven’t been there again in years. We certainly didn’t know if I could last in a wheelchair for the duration of dinner. To complicate matters I needed to use my hooveround, not my main wheelchair, because the ramps are fitted according to that wheelchair. It didn’t matter I did really well. I sat through all of dinner. I sat at the table with my family. I was very happy to be there.

I got to wear my birthday present from my dad and stepmom. The vest was the winner on making the cut on Amazon season 3 week 2. https://amzn.to/3gERwzR. Loved it, so cute.

I had a wonderful thanksgiving but woke up Friday morning feeling lousy. I got out of bed and struggled to make the transfer to the wheelchair. I was relieved we decided not to play mahjong that afternoon. As the day went on I felt worse and worse. I started coughing up phlegm that I couldn’t get out and would choke on in my throat. It came out of nowhere. I didn’t even sneeze the day before and now I’m choking on phlegm. Once again it was a scary experience because it gets caught in my throat. I can’t get it up and out or down the pipe. That chocking feeling is something you don’t forget. My aide made me a tonic of Haitian rum, orange juice and honey. I can’t thank her enough. She saved me. The honey soothed the throat, citrus melts the phlegm and the rum stops the cough. It helped significantly. I told her she needs to bottle this stuff. I couldn’t get out of bed for two days.

I finally got up today. I feed my puppies and washed my hair. I stopped coughing but started sneezing. However I feel better than I did. I have two doctor appointments this week both with my neurologists. I need to be well to get there. I am relaxing today with my puppies. Maybe they are relaxing with me.

I just love him. Zoey hasn’t left my side for three days. She has taken really good care of her mommy.

Love her❤️. Off to watch my 2005 f1 race. I’m rewatching Fernando Alfonso championship years ❤️❤️. Have a great week.

  1. Like the pictures, it’s nice you got to participate in dinner, sad about the lousy days. Would love to have at least 2 good days in a row. Dinner had to come to me this year. No one has accessible bathrooms, huge problem.
