I am whistling again. I noticed this yesterday while making a mug of Breathe Easy – a medicinal tea that instructs me to break most of Cindi Bigelow’s recommendations. It is steeped for 10-15 minutes, and… (are you ready for this?) you are SUPPOSED to squeeze the tea bag! I just got over that bad habit! I don’t know what Bigelow would say about that, but then, she didn’t have my flu.
Yes, I caught the flu – a textbook case of it. It came on so suddenly that I didn’t even stop to think about how I was feeling on Saturday morning until I was being driven to work and realized, “I don’t feel well.” I suffered through my four hour shift (I didn’t have the car) and went straight home to bed where I spent the majority of the next 2-3 days. Add in another major snow storm, and you can see why I haven’t stepped outside my house in five days.
But, I am whistling again, and that is a good sign my health has returned. Normally, I whistle a LOT (just ask my patient family) and it takes great effort to be quiet sometimes. Unfortunately, whistling doesn’t come naturally when I am flat on my back with a 101-103 degree temperature. I thank the Lord for healing me! I am blessed!
