Because it’s been a while and many of you have been nice enough to e-mail us privately or post something on one of our social media sites to ask how we were doing, we thought it might be time for an update.
Long story short: This *^%$!! flu keeps lingering on. One day we’ll feel a bit better, the next … not so much. The good news is that it looks like our temperatures are staying close to normal. Unfortunately, our stamina is still more limited than we would like. We ventured out for some essentials and by the time we got back home we were exhausted. We’ve been told that this is the norm for a lot of people and that staying cozy inside and away from crowds is a really good thing to do.
One upside is that this has forced us to stay inside and, when we have the energy, work on our Les Paul book. Steve’s brother, Lee, and brother-in-law, John, have been dealing with similar symptoms for longer than we have and their doctor agrees that it may take around 3 weeks for them to start feeling normal, too. All the news reports are indicating that this is a much worse than usual flu season and that it just might continue into May.
So, the take away for us is that, we’re not in the hospital, we’re following doctor’s orders and improving slowly, we’re, mostly, staying inside where it’s cozy and we’ve got each other and lots of Johnnie’s homemade turkey soup and other wonderful creations that keep our kitchen and much of the rest of the house filled with incredibly good smells.
And, as much as we missed being able to finish our Christmas/New Year’s “drive-by” at WGN, there will be other times for us to pop back inside your radio speakers.
For the moment, we’re where we should be, as the song say’s “Feeling Stronger Everyday” and thankful for your concern and friendship.
Now, if you’ll pardon us, that turkey soup is calling.
