Right before Thanksgiving, she started to not feel well. She resisted, because she hadn't been sick since getting her tonsils out, and she had fancied herself immune to all diseases since completing the HPV vaccine.
A few days later she started to feel worse, and realized she couldn't continue to blame it on allergies. She was sick.
It was a terrible time for her. She had time in early December to go to Urgent Care, but not before.
The Ex came over for Thanksgiving, and she was cranky and sick the whole day. He had come over so early, wanting to watch the parade with her. Half an hour before the parade started he knocked on her door. They watched the parade with her in her bed and him on the couch. When it was over they watched White Christmas, their tradition. She put on a movie for him and she took a shower, but it didn't really make her feel any better.
They watched a few other movies, she tried to help make dinner but couldn't manage a lot. He burned and ruined her cookie sheet and two of her pots. She didn't have time to get new ones, they would have to wait.
The ex left around 10 at night. She was exhausted and went straight to bed.
