Under the Weather

Well, I felt I needed to explain why I haven't posted anyting in a number of weeks.  I've been down with what is officially termed as the "Dubois Crud".  It's a varying  malady with an assortment of symptoms.

My version has fluctuated between flue-like symptoms, bad cold symptoms, dry hacking cough to choking up phlem, on-and-off ear ache, bronchitus, vomiting and passing out.  This was compounded by having a major fibromyalgia flare-up because of the stress of the whole thing.

I've been on antibiotics, cough medicines, and pain pills.  From one day to the next not sure I can even get out of bed.

It's been two weeks since I've been able to stand long enough to get to the Center and use the internet.  Symptoms may drag out for weeks. Pretty shaky right now.  Major ear buzzing....

I did manage to dehydrate some fresh cranberries just before the worst of this started. As soon as I'm capable of rational thought, I'll post several articles about it.

Just wanted everyone to understand what is going on, and that I have not given up on this. Just needed to get well enough to function.


  1. You have my sympathy! Hope you're feeling better now.

    1. Thanks Sande, feeling better now. Should have a great new post up shortly on dehydrating cranberry sauce, plus a surprise or too!
