The Influence of Influenza

Bloggie friends!

When I wake up drowning in a pool of my sweat and feel as if I'm stuck under a concrete block that's been dropped on me from a great height, my mind turned to mush, muscles immobile, insides simultaneously hot and chilled - I think it's fair to say that I have influenza.

So 6 days later I find myself still alive, if barely.

And whao but do I have such a lot to catch up on!

Charlie says: Me too.



Have a healthy rest of the week everyone! And thank you for helping with my mystery plant!! LOL!

I think the only thing the cat is interested in catching up on is sleep...lol

Melissa J. Cunningham said...

Hope you feel better soon. There's nothing worse than feeling like crap. Of course, it gives you an excuse to laze around all day. That can't be bad! LOL

Theresa Milstein said...

Old Kitty, poor you! You've been slammed with a lot of stuff lately. I hope this is the last of it.

Charlie looks so sweet. I hope he's been nice and snuggly for the last six days.

You have a healthy rest of your week. xo

Brian said...

I didn't know you were feeling so bad or I would have sent more purrs. I sure hope you get all better soon. Hello Charlie!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Charlie's laughing because HE didn't get sick! Cats are so evil that way...

umi_e said...

We pray and lots of purrs for you. Hope you will get well soon...

* Sorry that we missed lots because all of us were away *

ABBY said...

Oh dear Jenn
WE all hope you are doing better.

Hi Charlie
Do take good care of your Mum!

Ann Best said...

Oh Jennifer! That sounds so miserable. That does put one greatly behind. Do take care!! That's also a demand from Jen also. We both read your wonderful comment on my latest post about our nine day trip. Now I'm trying to do catch up too!!

So two more days until the weekend. You and Charlie take care of each other.
Ann

Amparo Ortiz said...

OMG, I hope you're feeling better!! I get all weepy after something stupid like a paper cut, so I'm proud of you for sticking it out through this. Recover soon for Charlie!!!!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

OMGoodness! It's really early to have the flu...I hope you are back to 100% soon... I hope Charlie snuggled with you and kept you comfortable.

Jemi Fraser said...

Hope you're feeling better soon - being sick stinks! Take care :)

Katnip Lounge said...

OMG! Take care of yourself. Flu is the absolute worst. Thank goodness you have Charlie to worry about you and cater to your every need.

Not.

Jacqueline said...

Sounds like you had a rough time, hope you are feeling much better now...I know Charlie was a big comfort to have around while you were so sick=what a sweet napping buddy you have there!...Hope you get some "restful" rest and take care, Jenn...Sending big hugs...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

KarenG said...

SIX days?? Omigosh please get better soon. That is way too long to have the flu. Take massive doses of Vitamin C and plenty of water.

Love,

Dr. Mom

Hope you're feeling better! Looks like Charlie is watching over you--he's such a great friend! :)

Theresa Milstein said...

By the way, great title. One of your best.

Kat_RN said...

I am so sorry you were ill! Hope you are feeling much better now.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh that is awful that you have had the flu! Such a yucky feeling to have - but it sounds like you are at least on the mend now! We are so glad for that! And we hope that Charlie helped to keep you warm and has been taking care of you to help you feel better - cats are usually pretty good for that!!

Nicole MacDonald said...

Look at his pretty tail *oooo* and glad you're feeling better! Well done at tackling the flu (I cheated and had the flu shot *grin*) take care of yourself :)

Poor, poor Kitty. I wondered where you were. I hope you get over it really quickly.

Brigid said...

You poor thing, if its any consolation I had it and so did my whole family, nasty virus. Hope you are feeling better now.

BigFatLion said...

Poor Old Kitty.

Hope Charlie's been looking after you. You didn't wipe your nose on him, did you, thinking he was a big white tissue?

Make sure you get lots of R&R now!

Reenie said...

Guess what, me too!
Blocked nose and heavy head... I even had to skip work this Monday, I was so sick!
Get well soon, I know I want to!

Words A Day said...

Oh take care of yourself - i must say your description of influenza made it sound quite Kafka-esque and exciting, if traumatic!

Ellie said...

Oh, no. Flu is the worst. Get better soon!

Gorgeous picture of Charlie!

Kea said...

Oh, no! :-(

We're sending you lots of purrs and healing Light, that you feel better soon.

(((Hugs)))

Creepy Query Girl said...

OMG, I hope you feel better soon! I was really sick the last couple days too. NOT. FUN. Tell Charlie to go make you some chicken noodle soup.

Boonie S said...

I suspect that I know how you caught it. You probably opened the window and influenza. I advise to keep all windows closed in future.
Hope you're soon feeling better.

All the best, Boonie
PS: I once had a saw bridge, for what it's worth - really herts

The Monkeys said...

We're so glad you're feeling better, but it's better to take it easy and ease back into work. Big purrs from all of us!

Clarissa Draper said...

Ugh, I hope you feel better. It's awful and I know winter's coming so I'm trying to prepare. An apple a day, that's my motto.

BY the way, I don't know what kind of plant that is...

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope you are feeling a little better each day - flu makes you feel as though you have been trampled on. Hope Charlie kept getting you soothing drinks. Perhaps it was all the office reorganising that brought it on.

Hart Johnson said...

Urgh! Sounds absolutely miserable! I am glad you are crawling your way out of it and hope you are back to yourself soon!

laughingwolf said...

kenny's with charlie: sleep on it :)

Marg said...

Gosh, we figured something was really wrong since no posts. We sure hope you feel much better soon. We are all sending you tons of purrs, some woofs, some hee haws, and a Baa so that you will get all better. Take care and take it easy.

roxy said...

So sorry you've been ill, Kitty. I'm now sending Danny over with a bowl of veggie broth, and a book. He's going to read to you and Charlie. The flu won't stand a chance.

Sammy and Andy said...

We know adorable Charlie took special care of you while you were ill.....we're so happy to hear you are A O-K again. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Simon Kewin said...

Oh no! Glad you're on the mend!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I hope you are all over the flu! I get a flu shot every year trying to present this, but of course there are many strains of the bugger out there so it always doesn't work.

Lots of chicken soup really does seem to help!

Alexandra Crocodile said...

oooh, I hope you feel better soon! Adn that Charlie doesn't catch anything from you:)

Donna Hosie said...

Time to step away from the computer and get well.

Ann said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Now be good to yourself and stay healthy.

Felted House said...

I'm so sorry - true flu is awful, really terrible, I do hope it completely goes away very, very soon. I just have sneezes at the moment so that's not too bad at all! Look after yourself. xx

Patsy said...

Medeia Sharif said...

I hope you're feeling much better and that Charlie is taking good care of you.

You can call me Ant. said...

Oh my goodness, Charlie looks like a good cuddle buddy! Feel better! :) and yeah, I ended up just marking the page in my book for later reference...one day...I'll go back :)

Eliza said...

Get better soon, and thanks for your kind words on m recent post. ((((hugs)))))

Claudia said...

Hi there, Old Kitty,
Sorry to hear you've been under the weather. I hope you're feeling better. You need plenty of rest. Hope Charlie is not making you work ;)
Have a great weekend!

Jackee said...

Poor thing! Feel better soon. I'll be sending wellness thoughts your way all weekend!
