I’ve been sick. I’ve started the first several days coughing up a walnut of nasty substances. Yesterday afternoon it felt as though my brain had been invaded. My eyes wouldn’t focus, my head wouldn’t stay up, and there was a lot of coughing, sneezing, sniffling, moaning, and groaning. I had to lie down. After drifting in and out of sleep for a while I gathred enough strength to take a hot bath with mineral salts and herbs. It helped a bit.
By 5:00 this morning I was able to get up and finish grading papers. Then I taught my class, picked up #2 son, and headed for a meeting with Janalisa. I think it will be a very satisfying project. It’s a little museum specializing in medical history. We strolled around looking at 19th century surgical implements, ancient pharmaceuticals, an iron lung, and a collection of salt and pepper shakers. Among other things.
I came on home, ordered some pizza, and have been hanging out since then. Coughing a bit, but it’s not too bad.
Tomorrow, #1 daughter is coming over for breakfast before #2 son goes to play in an Ultimate tournament. It’s great to have him here.
