I declared myself well again yesterday morning and went out in the cold, freezing air and walked Tyke and I have to tell you that this was a very satisfying experience with no bad after effects whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I feel perfectly fine and, except for a stubborn cough, there is nothing wrong with me at all. Even the cough is getting better and less frequent and things are loosening up a bit.
I called the doctor's office yesterday afternoon and found out that the chest X-rays showed no abnormalities whatsoever and all I have to do is go in for a check up next week. I had such a good feeling about it ahead of time that this did not surprise me and I really was not expecting anything else. I am very happy, to say the least, that I do not have to go on another course of antibiotics and I now take pro-biotics every day to get the flora in my intestines to a healthy level again.
I have my appetite back and am able to eat good sized portions of healthy food without any problems. This is a good thing because I had lost a few kilos while being sick. As a matter of fact, I am eating better now than I did before I got sick and I think the antibiotics also cured whatever problems I was having with my stomach. Eating has become a joy again and it has been a very long time since it was.
I think Tyke is happy about the fact that I am taking him for walks again. He did not mind being walked by the Exfactor, but for some reason he was always very reluctant to go with my sister. I have no idea what the reason for that was. Now Tyke can dawdle and take his time checking out all his favorite spots which is really what his walks are all about. We do have our routines. He has to, for instance, check all the bushes along the way on one street for half eaten apples, and that takes a lot of time.
