Hit hard

Hi, I was hit hard last night with a flu-virus.  Spiked a fever of 101.2, had the chills so bad and I shivered so hard I thought my teeth might crack.  The muscle aches were/are awful AND the MS took a hit.  My weaker side (right-leg) is really struggling to move. It is a bit better today than last night but I have a ways to go to get back to my "abnormal-normal"...

 I am overwhelmed by all the transitions and emotions that go along with such changes, as well as my Mom's birthday yesterday and the 10 year anniversary of my Sister's son passing away.  It is time to slow down, take stock and really respect my limits.  I feel so badly for Skipp because he picks up the slack on everything.  He is so generous, kind, and understanding.  I am SO blessed.

Please send prayers and good thoughts.  Please.

Oh Gail....I'm so sorry. I know that it is more than comforting to have your Skipp there to help you through this rough time. Get better, please. There is a lot of that yucky stuff going around. My thoughts are with you, and I will pray for you tonight...for your healing and your strength to cope with the sadness that is shadowing you at this moment. Feel the hugs...
"Dear Lord...My friend, Gail is not feeling well right now. Lord, please touch her...give her a hug from You that she can feel at this very moment. I pray that her muscle pains will diminish and then completely go away, Lord. I pray that she is back to herself and feeling your miraculous healing power tonight. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Amen."
Sending you love,Gail....
Jackie

Get well soon, Gail. Bravo to Skipp for making sure you're OK.

Cinner said...

Sounds asif everything is hitting all at once sweetie. I hate that your not feeling well and that it makes your MS worse, and having had to go through the storm with no power.I think your body is telling you to slow down....Remember Skipp would do anything for you, your love is so strong. He knows a wonderful kind loving woman. feel better soon. love you.

Gail said...

THANK YOU ALL for your kind words, prayers and support. Things are status quo.
Love,
me

It's amazing how miserable the flu can make you feel, isn't it? Kali marched me to the corner drugstore for a flu shot a few weeks ago (she gets one free at work because she's dealing with students all day long). I don't usually get sick, but there's no need to tempt fate--especially this year, since I'm teaching, too.

Gail said...

HI SCOT - ya, I got the flu shot too, we both did in early October. I think this would have been worse had I not. The bigger issue for me is how it impacts the MS. I have a ways to go to get my leg back to close to where it was in strength. Long road.
Love Gail
peace....

Muffie said...

Gail, so sorry that the bug caught you. Sometimes, I think when our emotional side gets off-balance, it hits our MS, too. Take care and get well.
Peace,
Muff

Lovely Gail,

I send prayers to you right now, all the way across the sea and the land... I pray that for recovery for your leg, a rapid recovery from the flu and for a peace of mind that is supernatural. I pray that God will give you the sense of calm strength that can only come from him.

You are blessed to have Skipp, but so is he to have you.

I'm willing to bet that he would agree to that.

With love

I am on the mend, one moment at a time as the prayers wash overme and the healing love

HI MUFF - the flu bug hit hard and fast and for the most part has left. Phew. It did impact my MS weaker side tho so I am fighting my way back. SO scary to lose ground.
Love Gail

Prayers and good thoughts are being sent your way. I hope you are feeling better by now, and that you're back up to your "abnormal normal" soon.

Love to you.

Dear one in the name of Jesus I curse this sickness. It is not from God but from the enemy. You are healed in Jesus' name.

Hugs to you my dear.

Gail said...

HI JBR - GRACE - I feel the power of your faith and conviction in Jesus and I believe. "thank you"

HI KIM< TRACEY & DIANA

thank you all for your prayers and support. I am on the mend, healing and recovering slowly and surely. We made my famous stuffing today. Smells glorious in here. I am thankful that this set back healing. Hallelujah.
Love Gail
