The Black Hole

I have bronchitis and pneumonia. I have no idea how I got it. It started with an upset stomach. The next day, I thought I had swallowed something too big and by night it was a persistent cough. The fever came next and the 4th was just a haze of me moving from bed to sofa to bed again.

In retrospect, I think I was getting sick before all that. In this heat, I often nap for maybe an hour during the heat of the afternoon, work on computer projects inside, and return to shop and sometimes work until the wee hours of the morning. But for several days before the first symptom really hit, I was shocked to be waking up from my nap 4 - 5 hours later.

By Sunday, it had hit my lungs an my doc started me on antibiotics. And I got worse! Tuesday, she threatened me with hospitalization but I begged her not to. I go in daily for breathing treatments.

I'm still pretty weak and have some interesting tales to share about my "nurse." But that will have to wait...

Omigosh, Holly, I figured you'd been pooping off like I've been doing. In fact, it kind of made me feel better to know I wasn't the only one in the slacker club, and now I find out you've been really sick.

Please take good care of yourself and feel better each day.

Carmon, It's hard to just lay around when I have orders in the shop. But by mid-afternoon, I'm dead tired.

Janet, Soon, I promise!

Velvet, Well, I WAS pooping off...just not quite the same way!

Holly! Take care of yourself and I hope those antibiotics kick in soon!
