in fact, it might even be H1N1 flu. The doctor did the swab test and in 7- 10 days I'll be notified if it is or isn't. She's pretty sure it is just because of the symptoms I've had. Either way, it's the flu and it's not fun. I decided to go to the doctor because I wasn't able to control the coughing. She said "you must not be able to sleep" and I said "that's right", so she prescribed a strong cough medicine which seems to help a bit. Because of the possibility it's H1N1 and I have this cough, I got strict orders to go home and stay there til the cough is gone. That's because they (medical folk) have determined it's more "airborne" than initially thought. I am suspecting that I caught this bug, whatever strain it is, at the State Fair. It fits the time-frame to a "T". And interestingly, my daughter who went to fair the day before we did is also sick. She's been diagnosed with bronchitus. We both just want the cough to go away.
I thought I was going to be setting up an exhibit of some of my vintage quilts at the Henderson Library tonight as it's Heritage Days in Henderson this weekend. After consulting with members of the library group, we decided it was best to just post a notice apologizing for my illness and recommend to those interested in quilts to go up to the Sibley County Historical Society and check out the quilts there. Sometimes the best-laid plans just don't work out. However, I won't be bored. You'll find me in my sewing room this weekend, taking my meds, getting some rest and hoping that by Monday the cough is gone. I have a program to do for the Prior Lake Quilters on Monday evening so I need to be well by then! Already thinking about what Plan B will be if the cough is still lingering.
Hope you have a good weekend. I am planning a quiet one!
