Taking a breather

It is rare that I don't post for a week.  In fact, I'm not sure it has happened before but the flu hit the Red Farmhouse. And although, I'm pretty sure the quarantine flag can be taken down, it has left my asthma prone lungs short of breath.  Normally, my breathing is very controlled.  In fact, I haven't had an attack in 11 years.  But yesterday when my face turned pale and lips turned slightly purple, it was apparent that my recovery might not be as quick as I would like.  Antibiotics, steroids, breathing treatments 3xday ~ I hate medicine.  But I do like breathing.  So, that is what I am doing... resting & breathing.  I'm not complaining or trying to drum up sympathy.  Just lettin' you know... I'll be back to cooking, crafting, and farm animals soon, but right now, I am taking a breather.

  4. Kim,
    Take care of your self. Blogging will still be there. I'm asthmatic too and this time of year can be challenging with wood and pellet stoves.
    I hope you feel better soon.
