I don’t want to jinx myself; but, this was the first time I have recovered from the flu without becoming septic with a line infection. In my family, this is very exciting news!
The lesson I have learned from this most recent experience is when I am not feeling well, it is amazing the difference in completely resting opposed to rushing back to the normal day-to-day and work demands. It has been stated in my family on numerous occasions how stubborn I can be with resting and listening to my
I have also mentioned the internal conflict I felt with further extending my medical leave from work into the 2013 year. From having the flu for the last 3 weeks, I wouldn’t have been able to go back to work. I am slowly starting to feel better and my DIGITS symptoms remain extremely unpredictable.

It is quite possible this may be a goal for me for many years to come.
I wish you and your families much happiness and fabulous health in 2013!
