I never thought I would love to hear the doctor say I tested positive for the flu.
It started one evening with a very sore throat and a dry cough..
The next morning I woke up with a temp of 102, body aches, congestion and I felt terrible. Our state of Michigan has one of the highest rates of Covid-19. Needless to say I was very scared as I went for a test.
Three hours later the doctor called to say I was negative for Covid-19 but positive for the flu.
Who is thankful for the flu? I am.
But I have had a few miserable days. I am slowly recovering. Fever is gone, coughing spells are fewer and the body aches are gone. But I am exhausted. Doctor said it might take two to three weeks before my strength returns.
Talking to friends who have had Covid-19 I realize my days of misery were so short compared to theirs. Although I may be tired for a while I am not experiencing many of the after effects they are.
So – I’m grateful for the flu.
Stay safe dear readers. Take care of yourself.
Hope you are totally well soon and stay well.

Oh dear, the flu can be devastating as well. Stay hydrated and get plenty of vitamin C. I’ll be praying for you. Thank you for your concern and prayers for me.
Thanks for your prayers
Glad you’re feeling better and it’s only the flu! I agree, it is something to be grateful for.
