WEEKEND REVIEW - September 12

I can't say that this weekend was very enjoyable ! During the night from Friday to Saturday, I woke up because I felt so hot and strange. In the morning I took my temperature and had 39°. Quite a lot ! I asked Mr. G. to call our doctor but he was suffering from a severe arthritis attack and couldn't even hold the phone !

My lady Dr. came as early as she could and diagnosed me with a virus which is swirling around for the moment and makes people "happy". She prescribed me antibiotics and a lot of other things to get on feet as quickly as possible. For Mr. G. there was nothing to do but taking pain killers.

So we were both laying in our beds and played hospital !  Fortunately I had enough food at home, so that was not a problem, but anyway we weren't very hungry neither.





I spent the whole Saturday in bed, in company of Rosie, on Sunday I felt a little better and could slowly potter around, but mostly I stayed on the sofa and watched TV. Mr. G. too felt a lot better and could at least move a bit again. He even did some shopping !



While we were both "out of work" my neighbor had her tree cut ! What a noise ! She really had chosen the "best" day for us.

The day ended with Rosie bringing a mouse home, and I could just avoid that she brought me her prey in my bed ! Mr. G chased her and the mouse outside !

Oh I'm so sorry that you were poorly this weekend - both of you! Did you eventually phone the doctor yourself? And imagine lying with a chain saw noise next door. At least Rosie thought to bring you a "gift" Hope you're both better now.

Sorry to hear you are unwell and you had a bad weekend. But antibiotics, anti bacteria, are useless against a virus. There is a strong campaign against doctors prescribing antibiotics to treat a virus, mainly because they don't work and cost health systems a lot of money.

Hi Gattina - those viruses are nasty - take care this week and go easy. Glad the doctor could come out ... and that you do sound as though you are a little better. Look after yourselves - Hilary

Was surprised the doctor prescribed antibiotics for a virus as they would have no effect whatsoever. You always have an amusing story to tell and i laughed out loud at the idea of the mouse arriving on your bed.

Why do cats do that? My friend's cat used to bring in cockroaches. Yuck. Hope you're feeling better.

That makes for an awfully rough weekend. You should get a do-over when you are all better! Glad you're both feeling better.
