(Avon Park, FL) Hi 80 Lo 73 -- When you live in a sticks and bricks house you know how when your spouse is sick one of you sleeps in the "other" bedroom? Well, in an RV there is no other bedroom. It was a rough night. Jim has the flu and was coughing all night so I moved to the living room. Our couch isn't long enough to sleep comfortable on, so I took the cushions off and laid them on the floor. I never dreamed it would be so noisy. There were a couple of windows open, which I didn't realize till this morning. At 4:30am a truck in the truck yard behind us dropped some kind of a huge load and it sounded like an explosion. The train went through several times, and trucks on Hwy 27 were really loud. In the bedroom we have a noise machine so we seldom hear much. I didn't sleep all night, so when Jim got up to come to the living room I went to the bed and tried to sleep a couple hours. Needless to say, I'm very tired today.
Hey, Jim here... it wasn't a picnic on my end either! At least you weren't sweating all night, and trying to get your achy muscles to calm down enough to lie in one position for more than 30 seconds. Not to mention the nausea, tickly throat, stuffed up head and runny nose. Have you every sneezed while wearing a CPAP mask? I'm telling you, it's NOT a pretty sight!
I didn't walk today, I felt to weak and tired. I did sit outside with Judy awhile later this afternoon. The technology club meeting was today so I sat in on that to see what's planned for the next few months. That's going to be a fun one. They have speakers coming in, and everyone shares knowledge about new technology. The hottest thing right now is Windows 8, which a few of the residents are learning. It's great seeing tech-savvy people over 50 learning about new technology.
Jim is feeling a little better tonight. We'll check the fever and maybe he'll be back to normal in the next day or two. To answer a question: yes, he's had his flu shot.
