What a Week!

About 10 days ago my husband complained of a headache and sore throat.  He took a couple of ibuprofen and we hoped symptoms would go away.  Of course they didn't and the symptoms were joined by a rasping chesty cough and heavy cold.  He became so bad that he had to have antibiotics as he developed an upper respiratory tract infection.

I quickly followed to keep him company! You know when you pride yourself on being fit and healthy and then suddenly you are hit with something you can't control and you realise you are mortal? Scary stuff!  I must admit it has been a long time since we have been so ill and the cough and cold is still persistent but we are feeling so much better than before or at least we are trying to convince each other that this is the case.

We were particularly anxious as we had book to see 42nd Street some time ago and we were fearful

that we wouldn't be able to go.  Well it was a challenge but we did get to see the performance at the end of this week and it was just what we needed.  It is a spectacular show and fully recommend it.  It is so uplifting and full of energy and talent.  It was also a treat to see Sheena Easton who still is very impressive. It was a good job I took water and strepcils with us as I did have one moment when I found it difficult to suppress my cough. Such an awful feeling ...that you are about to explode!

Anyway good time had by all!  Lessons learned this week....don't take your health for granted and accept that sometimes you can overcome difficulties to enjoy the things you want to do if you don't give in!
