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.
