Coffee and the Double Dip Flu…

I am drinking my morning cup of coffee and thinking about the flu. Any flu: Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by RNA viruses of the family Orthomyxoviridae (the influenza viruses), that affects birds and mammals. The most common symptoms of the disease are chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness/fatigue and general discomfort. Although it is often confused with other influenza-like illnesses, especially the common cold, influenza is a more severe disease than the common cold and is caused by a different type of virus…

If you ask me, I think that this flu should be called “Death warmed over!” And I know about death warmed over. I have been brought back several times by defibrillator and felt better then, than I do right now… 🙂

So as I sip my coffee and pluck away at this article. I came to the realization that I had a double dip flu. (Like a double dip recession and the second dip is worse than the first…) In the last few weeks I had the flu and got very sick. I was down and out for several days. Sveta took care of me and as I started to feel better, then Sveta came down with it. I then took care of her. Then I got hit again. Then I lost several days and am not really sure about much of what happened during those days. I guess Sveta canceled my teachings and other appointments. I know that I was incapable and I know that I was as sick as I have ever been in my life and somewhere Sveta felt good enough to take care of me again… (Bless her heart!)

Poor Boza has been beside himself with worry. He is not use to me being bedridden…

I do remember one thing from the last few days and found the remains of it in the refrigerator. Sveta made chicken/cabbage soup. She calls it her magic healing soup. She says that she puts her soul into making it and it will make me better…

Since I lost 5 kilos this week. I am going to try to eat some more of that magic soup. It seems to be working and because it sure sounds good today… 🙂

It is a beautiful day in Russia…
