Just popping in to say I am alive, but barely. January brought me an ear infection, February laryngitis. Then March, oh cruel March, brought me the flu.
The flu is serious business. I didn't know. I haven't had the flu since I was a kid, and I'd forgotten how badly it wants you dead. I felt it coming for a day or two, but on Thursday of last week it struck full force -- fever, chills, body and headaches, night sweats, endless fits of coughing. I thought the end was near.
Five days later I am feeling largely better, though depleted. The fever is gone, but it left behind the headache, some of the coughing and a mild sinus infection. I just want to sleep and put lotion on my overblown nose.
Talk amongst yourselves while I get myself put back together. Good things (spring, for one) coming soon.
