In recuperation

The good thing about my current bout of bronchitis is that at least it hasn't been as bad as the almost-pneumonia of 2-3 years ago. This time around my throat doesn't hurt so much it feels like I'm swallowing razor blades.

The first round of antibiotics didn't work - after 5 days I was coughing up blood, which is a first for me.  but now I'm on a broader spectrum drug which is working really well. In fact, after taking them for a couple of days I keep waking up thinking "today I could go back to work" (and then I take TLM to school and getting huffy and puffy on the way home so I know I'm not quite there yet).

It's a beautiful day today, a wonderful day for sitting in the sun and getting better. I really think that I might be ready to go back to work tomorrow (otherwise my library books will become overdue).

Thanks, but it turns out I'm not quite there after all. My library book is now overdue and I'll have to wait to pick up my hold ("Textured Stitches"). I getting really sick of being sick!

Sounds awful! Hope you feel better soon. Vitamin C and garlic?

donnasoowho: yeah done that. Haven't done the traditional Chinese rubbing of a hard boiled egg with a silver coin inside it - but only because I'm allergic to eggs!
