We're home now and hubby is doing well. Thank you for your prayers. It was comforting to know that we had the force behind us as we tackled yet another life circumstance.
Leaving Raleigh was a blur. We received a call from the airlines at 6:00am notifying us that our 10:30am flight had been cancelled. That meant that we were forced to make a mad dash to the airport to catch an 8:45am flight instead. To make matters worse, there was thick fog that blanketed most of Raleigh which made driving rather scary. We arrived at the ticket counter, only to find out that our seating was now a mess, and that on our last leg of the trip, hubby would be sitting in row 10 and me in row 40. The guy to my right was constantly blowing his nose, and the guy to my left looked ill, covered himself in a blanket as if he had the chills, and had a constant hacking cough. For 7 hours, he coughed. I couldn't change my seat as the flight was completely booked.
To make a long story short, two days later, I got sick with the flu. H1N1??? A good possibility. The symptoms point that way. The first and second day was so terrible that it left me wishing for death. Today, the third day into this, I'm feeling much better and glad that the big guy didn't grant my wish. What a difference a day makes.
And, to keep this post from becoming more than a bunch of whining, I thought I'd show you a cute handcrafted item that I fell in love with. This little angel is made from a real cotton boll. Isn't she sweet? I purchased her at the Natural History Museum in Raleigh.
I wanted you all to know that I'm still here and haven't abandoned my blog. I'll be back as soon as I feel better. For now, I'm heading back to bed. Cough, cough, sniff, sniff.
See you soon!
