no knitting

5 Comments

I did not stay home today. I did not knit today. Today I went to the doctor. Doctor says I have a virus. Know what’s fun about a virus? Nothing. Especially when you’re breastfeeding and can’t take the nice medicine that makes one extremely drowsy and takes the edge off of the extremely raw throat, the sore face, the runny nose, the cough and did I mention the raw throat? Since I can only take that nice medicine (Hycodan syrup, if you’re wondering) in very small amounts and only just before bed after feeding Jakob for the last feed of the night, my daytime hours are limited to a medicated gargle and saline nasal spray. And tea, ice cream, soup, yogurt, anything either cold or hot that I can slide down my throat.

So…no knitting. Maybe tomorrow. I think I’m going to hibernate this week.

  5. I had a very similar problem about the same time as your post. The saline nasal spray did help a little though.
