It was a busy last Thursday morning and things were fine here...Poppy was off work and we both had stuff to do and errands to run.
Around lunch time I began feeling awful. Simply awful. Had this strange feeling behind my eyes, I felt nauseated, and everything seemed to be bouncing up and down. This got worse as the day wore on. The only bit of relief came from closing my eyes pressing my fingertips on my forehead. This feeling stayed with me overnight. As soon as my doctor's office opened yesterday I called. Come in at 10:30 said his receptionist. Poppy drove me...I was too dizzy. After a quick checkup, he decided the problem was vertigo. Sure hope he knows what he is talking about. Poppy and I got the prescription for Meclizine filled and came home. I am feeling a little better today but moving very carefully. It's a feeling like any quick or jerky movement would put everything to spinning out of control. What a miserable feeling. The doctor talked like a number of things could bring on vertigo; the heat or a virus. So this my second time this summer feeling sick enough to see a doctor...and this is enough!
The pond seems to be clearing up a bit. This usually happens in July.
I don't have a big interesting post here...mostly wanted to say why I've been away for three days. Focusing on a computer screen didn't seem like a good thing to do with vertigo. I do have a bit of news to share with you.
Remember the little hillbilly bantam couple my friend Nellie gave me a while back. "Festus" and Lucille".
Well finally! Lucille has hatched one tiny baby chick. I was just before taking her off that nest of eggs she had been sitting on for a month, when out popped this baby chick from under her wing. He is tiny and he is cute! Now if we can just get him raised!
Thank you for visiting. Hope to be back soon. Things are still popping around here so maybe there will be something worth posting a little later.
