I'm Still Here...

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. 

I went back to the doctor on Thursday and am happy to 
report that I now have bronchitis 
on top of the throat infection and the ear infection.  

The coughing has been pretty bad.  

But I'm managing, feeling better every day.  

I read a statistic the other day that 36 percent of 
Army wives whose husbands are deployed overseas have 
at least one mental health diagnosis 
such as anxiety or a sleep disorder, etc. 

Now I don't feel so lonely!

I wonder if there's a statistic of Army wives 
whose husbands are deployed who 
KEEP GETTING SICK?  

I know I'm at the top of that list. 

Enjoy your day!

  1. The good news is you sound like you are getting better! The bad news, stress does a number on your immune system! I am hoping you are doing better soon! Hang in there!

  2. YUP, it's the stress! It lowers the immune system. You are an inspiration to me though, because you are getting through this year with the Colonel gone (and the year is half over already!!) So I know I can get through it too:) For me it's the waiting for the unknown, I think once my son is actually there and I get used to the new *empty nest* routine here at home it should get easier? I'm hoping:) I'm praying you get to feeling better soon!!!

  5. Hi Sunshine!! I am praying that today the Lord chooses to heal you and fill your heart with joy!!

    Glad to hear you're a bit better...when Randy went to Desert Storm I think I told you I was sicker than I have ever been in my life! I made it through with good rest, sunshine, and the touch of the Lord!! Sunshine CAN make a real difference!

    Love you, Lois, and I am so proud to call you friend!

    Love and hugs,
    Becky

  8. Oh Lois I am sorry you have not been feeling well. It is surely the stress of it all as it definitely lowers your resistence. I am glad to hear you seem to be on the uphill swing of things though. I do try and remember to pray for you everyday, as I can so feel how hard it must be for you to have him gone. And yet! the year is already over half over. The time seems to be flying (hope it seems that way to you to) Hang in there! HUGS, Debbie

  12. Gosh, I hope you start feeling better soon! I can only imagine the anxiety you must feel with your husband deployed. Whether you try to squish it or not, it truly is there and your body is open to attack. It's a spiritual warfare, as well, with your soul being attacked daily. Your wonderful man WILL come home to you. So many are offering prayers on your behalf. Get well, Sunshine!

  13. Wow - you just can't win...sure hope those antibiotics kick in soon. There has to be some connection to not having the best medicine at home (like grapes and ginger ale from a man in uniform!) :) Get well quick, my friend.

  18. Stress makes everything worse. Get better and take your vitamins. When does your husband get home and will he be able to stay? Sandie

  19. I am wracking my brain for something good for coughing. Other than getting your hands on some codeine, I can't think of much. DANG. Get better soon!!! Hit the dr. up for codeine, and make SURE you ask fer the one with the anti-barf med added in (phenergan).

  20. Praying for you and your family Lois My father was in the military and so many times people forget the hardship of separation and worry for the safety of that loved one that the loved ones experience. I truly empathize with you and your family.
    May the Lord Bless and Keep you and your dear sweet family, May you continually rest in Him as you walk through this valley.
    Hugs,
    Sue

  23. Good grief! The epizootics are going all 'round. It seems everyone here has had some sort of respiratory problem and I'm, just now, getting over a cold. I take Sambucol and elderberry juice to boost my immune system and I do believe it helps. Feel better fast!
