Well, I’ve just returned from the hospital with a diagnosis of “walking pneumonia” and an interesting antibiotic.
It isn’t as bad as it sounds. I’m not gasping and laying on the floor… More like a very bad bronchitis that wasn’t leaving as fast as I like. Oddly, one of the more common diagnostic “features” is a dizzy / disoriented effect from lower gas diffusion rates in the lungs (it is a bit harder to breath, so folks do it less. Me? I’m just upping the respiratory rate when I want to think more ;-)
The antibiotic full course is all of 5 days ( I think they use ‘the good stuff’ ;-) so this is expected to be resolving quickly.
The most likely point of contraction was wandering around in a group of “100,000 of my closest friends” down at the theme park in L.A. while being aggravated by the chemicals used in the hotel room to ‘clear the air’. At any rate, some bugs moved in, and I’m giving them an eviction notice.
So don’t be surprised if moderation is a bit slow or articles don’t come fast and furious. The last few days I’ve not slept well (coughing at night makes it hard to sleep) but after just the first dose of antibiotics I bagged 5 hours mid-day… So I’m likely to sleep more, do less, and only post something if I happen to be awake and feeling well. Even then, more likely to be a shortened version of what I usually do.
With that, we now return you to the daily insanity that is the product of the governments of the world and the ideologues that grasp after that power… Enjoy the show, since we sure can’t change the channel…
