I really am alive

Sorry to have dropped off the face of the earth all of a sudden!

The mild illness suddenly took a turn for the worse.  I was able to get an emergency appointment with one of the nurse practitioners at the clinic (they are the unsung heroes of the medical profession).  It appears a virus hit at the same time I had a bacterial infection.

I'm on the mend but I'll be on strong antibiotics for another week to get over this infection and protect anything from "settling in the chest".  They make me loopier than usual.  :)

It has been awhile since I posted as often as usual but soon... very soon... I hope to be back to my usual ponderings.

Pebbles, you get well real quick. I'm glad that you got into the clinic and got started on the antibiotics. This just happened to my niece...a bacterial infection on top of a viral one... so this is the second time I've heard about it in the space of two weeks. Strange. Anyway, feel better soon.

Dear Brenda, I'm praying for you to be well, and very soon! Peace and joy to you. Rereading old favorites is a great way to recuperate! ;->

Have you ever written a post about favorite books for children? About your son and daughter's favorite books when they were young?

Brenda,

You've been missed. I am sorry you have been sick - I have a cold, just a regular type but it can be tiring and annoying. I can't imagine having a virus and and infection at the same time.
Rest, and get well.

No doubt this illness was brought on by the demise of your basketball team the past three weeks.

Hang in there!
