OUT SICK BUT STILL TRYING

As I sit here, burning with fever and wheezing, I realize that the timing of NoBloPoMo is more than a little unfortunate. Our doctor called us and told us we had to come in because we are SICK. All I’d done is call to renew a prescription, but the hacking cough was probably a giveaway. She asked if Garry had the same symptoms. I said not exactly. His version of this seems to have gone into his ears, mine into my chest.

To say that this is putting a bit of a crimp in my creativity is an understatement. We were getting better and then started getting worse. To me, that screams “secondary infection.” I’m hoping it isn’t pneumonia. Again. I’ve managed to avoid it for more than 5 years, but the painful, deep cough is an old friend.

So I’m going to do my best to keep on blogging, but I’m having problems. Big ones. I can’t breathe and everything hurts, head to toes. It’s also the first time I’ve been seriously sick like this is years. I apologize for not being a good trooper. Maybe the doctor will have a magic bullet. That would be good.

I’m posting this early. I’m going to bed. I feel like I’m going under for the third time.

  7. After two weeks it’s definitely time to see the doctor (not that I ever follow that advice myself even though I have a vague worry that my pneumonia will return, but still…).
    Hope the doctor can help and you feel better soon.

  10. Yup, I’d definitely say a doctor visit is called for at this point. You need something to send this thing packing and then some. Hope they can find that bullet and make it work quickly. Rest up and come back when you can. We’ll all still be here. God willing. Feel better guys.
