The Mack Truck

I have a cold.

A miserable cold.

A sinus infection cold.

I hate it.

I feel so crappy that I actually called off work last night - something I never do.

MS and colds don't go together. When you have MS and you get sick, it totally drains all your energy and you feel like you've been run over by a Mack Truck.

Today, I think I feel worse.

Today is a Mack Truck day.

My nose is dripping and stuffed and dripping stuff.


And I'm tired of having to get up from where I am just to get a tissue - which is always where I'm not.

Therefore, I have come up with an inqenious creation. I'm thinking of selling them on my etsy site. What do you think?! (Don't put it past me to wear it to work tonight...)

By the way...I covet your prayers!!

And the prayer offered in faith
will make the sick person well;
the Lord will raise him up.
If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
-James 5:15

Deb~ you had better run out and get a patent on your invention right away!!!
Praying that you will soon be well!

Spitting coke now ... even more so after reading that you left Dawna's new leather recliner 'crispy' after you left yesterday (gosh ... girl ;) ... yes, get a patent. After I calm down, I'll start praying for you :)

That was funny! I think you might be on to something there! You could retire well off from your invention!

Having a sense of humor is crucial to our well-being. I remember the dumbest of things making me laugh when I was sitting at the Texas Cancer Center getting my treatments for my auto-immune disorder. Sometimes it sounded like we were having a party in the infusion room (granted not everyone appreciated our humor and there were days when I isolated myself intentionally from folks).

If laughter is indeed the best medicine, I am going to have a healthy day today after seeing your picture!

Saying a prayer for you to feel better!

HA!!!! I'm howling! How come you don't look old? I look old, and Lords knows I'm ONLY 2 years [to the day] older than you!!!! Well, at least you look better than you feel!! Get well soon!

Mrs. Mac said...

Friday morning: Hi Deb ... got your cryptic email you sent via your phone with no name. I have activated the Scarf Sisters into action via a prayer chain. May God comfort you and give you relief from your awful cold/sinus symptoms. May he give you rest at home and send help should you need it with meals. Hang in there, we're praying for you.


KayMac said...

Ok,i will start praying for you when I stop laughing my head off!

dawna said...

Welcome home. I am blessed to call you friend, Deb and last night the giggles coming from your room probably led the staff to think you had a lunatic in with you. But, dear friend of my heart, I am glad you're well.After I went home last night I sat in prayer with tears flowing freely as I placed you in His hands. Read my blog's for you. It's up to you how much you share, but I love the post here about laughter being the best medicine. That's why God gave us each bring sunny days. Stay well and know you can cripsy up my recliner any time...You are that special kind of woman that is so rare and precious. Hugs...and huge sigh of relief...

I always knew you had genius in you.
We will probably all be sporting the Deb tissue necklace sometime or another this winter!
