How I look today!

Today, the part of me  will be played by little Miss Brittany, of the Chipettes.

Yesterday I woke up feeling poorly with swelling just below one of my ears.
I visited the Doctor and she said my Parotid glands, which are situated near the ear, are causing the pain and fever.
So I am going back to bed for a nap, as I am feeling very tired, rest and drinking lots of water is the order of the day.

When the sun is shinning brightly outside, going to the beach or being out in the garden would be a much nicer option.

I do hope that you are enjoying your week and I look forward to coming to visit you and see what you are up to.
Sending hugs


  1. Oh, dear Carolyn...I am so sorry you are feeling under the weather. I hope it doesn't last long. You are right, being outside during the summer you are having would be better! Hope you can enjoy it soon!

    Cute picture!
    Hugs, Nancy W.

  2. Oh, Carolyn, that does not sound pleasant at all. I hope you are feeling better real soon. Take care.



  3. Oh Carolyn, you poor darling - that's not like you!

    Snug in your comfy bed is the best place for a sick chipette - do hope you are on the mend very soon!
    I've missed you lately and wondered if something was up.

    Take care sweetie and don't rush back - we'll all look forward to hearing from you when you're all chipper again.

    love and hugs

  4. Oh sweet friend...feel better soon...gets lots of rest!!! xoxoxo

    Hope you will feel better soon. This is no fun and one feels like so much time goes down the drain. Don't we all count on being fit all the time and getting things done? It is hard when you only can lie down and rest...
    A tight hug for you and take care!

    Love to you,

  28. Hi Carolyn,
    I'm sorry you're not feeling well, and despite that you were so kind to come and visit the silliness over at Rattus Scribus and put in your vote. I hope you feel better soon.

  35. Hi Sweetie, I've been away working, so have just caught up on this news. The parotid (salivary)gland is prone to issues, tiny stones, strictures & the like. You can have a minor radiological procedure where they inject some dye, diagnose the problem via imaging & dilate the pesky gland to solve the problem. Hope you are on the mend very soon.
