I am in the temporary possession of some physical energy and will take the opportunity to give you the latest news on the health front. I do know one thing, I make a very bad patient, and when I do not feel well, it is better not to get in the way of me because I am likely to bite your head off. I noticed that these last three days when, on top of everything else, I also developed a stomach bug and and became extremely grouchy. 

Much as I would like to be, I am not better yet, and after a brief moment of improvement, got worse again. The best thing I can do is sleep, although I do sometimes make big plans to sit behind the computer for a long while and amuse myself that way. That normally does not work out and I end up shutting it off and crawling under the covers to sleep for a couple of hours. 

My sister and the Exfactor have been walking Tyke, which is especially nice now that the weather is so bad. It is snowing as I write this. I did have to go out in the cold myself this morning when I had to go for my appointment with my GP. I dressed very warm and it did feel good to be outside, but it was a little bit too cold to be real comfortable. 

The GP listened to my lungs and was concerned enough for me to go and have chest X-rays taken tomorrow morning. He did not want to write another prescription for antibiotics because I have already had two courses of them and the last ones were very strong. He wants to wait with making a decision until he has the results of the X-rays. 

I am not saying that I have a serious disease, but I do sympathize with anyone who does and who has to listen to the dumb remarks other people make when they supposedly want to comfort a sick person. I imagine that when you have to deal with something like cancer, you hear an awful lot of stupid remarks.

Sorry to hear you're still not well and hope the xray will be OK.
I think we all get grouchy when we're not well. Its excusable.
We are having snow and icy blasts too.
