The Illness Returned

I thought things were back to normal early this morning, so much that we started our day by 6:30am. Within 10 minutes I felt like I'd been hit by a ton of bricks. I went back to bed before the hounds even finished their morning kibble. I was knocked out until 11:20am, woke up feeling fantastic ... enough to take a walk.
I wasn't so sure when I let them outside after their lunch. So I walked around the yard picking up more stray tree limbs. I noticed Stella was acting like she was going take off so I ran inside to grab a coat and gloves. It felt and looked like a spring day ... only a very cold one.
By the time I got back outside she was already heading next door.
Finally she figured out who was calling her name and while I was starting the walk, she was heading back to the house on her own, not knowing I was outside. That is the yard just in front of her.
Long story short. After I returned I didn't feel hungry at all, read a little internet but once again ....  a feeling of total exhaustion overran me. I was back in bed soon after our return and was knocked out once again until 6pm.

Below are photos of our walk at noon, when I was feeling normal. Or at least I thought I did.
That spring day feeling will change tonight around midnight as we have "winter warning" for weather. Which means we will have a little snow but wet enough and cold enough to make the highways slick. It really did feel nice today for the short time I was outside.

I will see what happens tonight, here in 'the tropics' of Southern Indiana.
