Sick puppy

Well, not as cute as a puppy.  But, sick none-the-less.  I was surprised with a sudden attack of the flu beginning late Sunday morning and just now (late Monday afternoon) starting to feel more normal.

For those of you who are sick in private homes…be thankful.  I have had a headache for the last 24 hours, and neighbors throughout our building are in process of reconstruction.  The sounds vibrate through the radiators and pipes.  The various workers are definitely NOT working in the same key nor the same rhythm.

Plus, it’s raining today, to add to the dreariness.

I put on some Christmas CDs to brighten the atmosphere, but they are only heard intermittently as the drilling, hammering, clanging dies down.

I hope they don’t work late.



  1. Every party has a pooper…

    It’s true though, holidays don’t happen without a Peipon being sick. Let’s see who gets it at new years! 😉

  2. I am sorry to hear that you are sick! I’ll be praying for you, and it sounds like I should be praying for your family, not to get sick as well.

  3. You poor dear! Can you get tylenol P.M. there? Maybe it’d be helpful to take it round the clock for a few days so you can sleep through the noise.

  4. Oy vey! Can’t Jim get you some percoset and a big bottle of something? I’m not a doctor, but that helps me…

  5. Hmmmmm, tylenol PM in Ukraine……note to short term missionaries….bring a bottle….. 🙂

    I’m sorry you feel bad….I hope you feel better……

  6. To all: Thank you for your prayers! Today is definitely a new day with new health mercies!! Lynne, you do make me laugh out loud…I thought you were the Dr. Prettyman that used to call Jim… Tylenol PM is a great suggestion to bring back…

    Oh, and Anna: we’re definitely praying for NONE of us to be sick over New Year’s when YOU arrive!! Hooray!!

  7. Glad you are feeling better!!!!

    Anna: It’s gotta be you 😉 ALL of us had ‘something’, except dad. Dasha and Kolya don’t count…

  8. Jeanne: Dasha and Kolya will be sorry to learn that they don’t count!

  9. don’t count meaning… they will be healthy!!!!
