I did mean to make a few posts in the last while, dear readers...but I have been knocked off my feet by illness. I've been sick for almost two weeks now. My fever just won't go away, and the cough keeps getting worse. I hear crackling sounds coming from my chest that kind of freak me out. My doctor says it's bronchitis, and gave me some antibiotics today, so I am hoping there is an end in sight. It really wears a person down, being sick day after day without any change. I am trying to take care of myself the best I can, relaxing when possible and drinking a lot of fluids.
