The Gobloots Are Gone ~

Anyone out there a real Lucy fan? If you are then I hope you will remember the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy was faking an illness, and when Ricky found out that she was faking, he got a real doctor friend to come over and examine Lucy and he determined that she had the Gobloots. It comes into the country on the hind legs of the Boo-Shoo bird!

Well, I have had the Gobloots. I have been so sick since last Sunday afternoon with the Flu and Strep together. It was so awful and I had to stay home from work all last week. I could barely drag myself out of bed. I finally made it to the doctor by Wednesday morning and found out that I would live after all. I really don't think I've ever been that sick in my life before. I went back to work today and I must say I feel really great! It was so nice to be clean, made up, and out of sweats for a change today.
That is what I've been up to for the last week but I'm back. See you tomorrow!

The flu AND strep! OH MY!!! I'll bet you did think you were dying. How awful!!

Anyway, I'm glad you're feeling better and were able to get all gussied up for work today ;)

Have a great week!

Bless your sick heart! I am glad that you are finally feeling better.
Both of my boys have had the Gobloots too.;) Daniel is better, but Matthew is still miserable.:(
Maybe I should give him some Vitameatavegimen, so he doesn't pop out at parties....And as you know, being sick makes one quite unpoopular.;)LOL!:)
(((BIG HUGS!)))

I remember, Ricky put the green lightbulb in the lamp so she thought she was dying and the band came in to play for her a quiet song and it was loud and booming!

I Love Lucy and I am glad you are feeling better. said...

Denise, that was always one of my FAVORITE Lucy episodes too!
John and Johnny have both had it - Johnny had the stomach part but John was basically achy and nauseous. I took the flu shot but don't know if that would keep me from getting it - I've been going around with the can of Lysol spraying the door knobs, toilet, etc.! Glad you are feeling better! Love you!
