Getting Better

Just thought I'd drop a quick note about my battle with the flu.

I am still coughing, but not as bad or often anymore. Which is good because my ribs were starting to kill me and I would have a coughing fit to the point where I thought I was going to throw-up.

I'm still a little weak, but I'm trying to be a little more active each day, which in turn helps make me hungry so I can eat a little more each day too. I ended up losing 21 pounds in total from all this, most of my gut and love handles are gone, but I lost a LOT of muscle weight too. And I dropped about 2 inches off my waist. It's been a crazy ride!

I heard the flu shots this year missed one of the flu viruses going around, I guess this one was it. Wowsers.

  1. Flu shots?!

    Bah! I've only gotten a flu shot once in my life and that was when Uncle Sam forced it onto me.

    I haven't gotten the flu in years *knock on wood*. I'm betting that flu shot is what made you sick! (where's my tin foil hat?)

    did you know that they have been adding tracking devices in them shots too? they can track your dna from space. yup. i read it on the inter-web, it's gotta be true.
