Back from the Land of Delirium

Finally able to return to somewhat normal duty. That cold I so blithely announced I was all but over at the end of last week turned very, very nasty.

Morphed into an upper respiratory infection, wiped me out completely.

Since I was too sick to go to the doctor, I had to tough it out. I'm not a fan of antibiotics, but I guess this was probably one time I could have used the extra help wiping those bugs from my system.

I started to realize I might need to worry when I woke up at 3am'ish one day -- in a sweltering NYC heat wave of 80 degrees in our non-air conditioned apartment -- and had to get out a blanket because I was racked by shiver-inducing chills. That is never good.

Fought it off, finally, but am still weak and prone to needing naps. Today will be my first day back at work.

Look forward to catching up with everyone!


  1. Yikes! That sounds rather nasty. I'm glad you recovered!

  2. I am glad you have surfaced again!

  3. Glad you are feeling better!

  4. Poor you - hope you're back to fighting fit in no time.


  5. Man, I'm glad you're feeling better! I've missed you and your voice!!

  6. Aye, that sounds scary! Drugs are called for. Plus sleep. And crackers. And fluid. Is it too hot for soup?? Feel better - remember to ease back into it...
