Alaska Dawn has the 'flu. Another of her taped journal entries.

Image 2014, Karla Dorman


Uggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh.  This bites.  I mean, really, really SUCKS.

Alaska Dawn here.  I'm sick.

Got the 'flu.  Not the swine 'flu, just the regular old 'flu.

I'm cold one minute, hot the next, cold, hot, cold, hot ... can't stop coughing and sneezing my head off -- feel like I've gotten run over by not just one truck, but a whole FLEET of trucks.  

I feel like you-know-what.

Thank you whoever gave this CRAP to me!

Went out to eat yesterday, Mom and Rosemarie and me.  Was feeling fine.  Last night, man, started sneezing and got the chills and just couldn't stop shaking!  

So Mom took me to the doctor's this morning:  yep.  'Flu.  It's really running around.  People are DYING because of this stuff!  He gave me some Tamiflu.  Have to take it twice a day for five days.

I hate taking pills.  Always have. *GAG*

Mom called Pattye and told her that I would not be seeing her because I'm sick.  She called in to work because I'm sick.  Pattye said she hoped I felt better soon.  Her bosses were understanding.  


Poor Puppy.  She wants to sleep with me, but Mom said no.  She doesn't want the kitty getting it.  Can I give it to her???  Mom says better safe than sorry.  She sits outside of my door and meows.

Like now.

I'm sorry, Puppy!!  Mom says 'No.'  

Well, this isn't going to be long, because I just don't feel good.  Going to try to get some sleep before I start sneezing again.  Or coughing.  Or shivering.  Or sweating.  Don't feel like talking much.

At least I'm not throwing up.  I hate throwing up.

I hope Mom doesn't think I'm being a whiny baby ... and I hope she doesn't get this crap.

Laters ...

Karla, I wish I had your uncanny ability to be so succinct, to deliver so much with so little. Your sister seems to have that talent as well. Well done. Many blessings to you!
Be well,
