Sick Leave

I'll be away from the blog for a few more days. I know I haven't updated in a while, though I do have a couple blog entries I've been working on. I hope to get at least one of them up by tomorrow night.

I was visited by a lovely viral infection which gave me acute bronchitis, and a nasty case of pleurisy, which brought along its own delightful infection and interesting pains.

I'm usually pretty good about responding to e-mails, but since I've been ill they have been backing up in my in-box. I'm sorry, please be patient. My family and my work come first. Then, the laundry. Then- maybe- this blog, as long as my husband is making dinner. :)

Discussion is ongoing in The Cellar Forum, if you're registered (new account activation is also a couple days behind). And there are always new, interesting, and usually maddening crimes being written about by my fellow True Crime Blogroll members over----> there.

See you guys in a few.

Get well soon.

I don't wanna sound like dear old Mom, but get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids. Gatorade is the most amazing liquid on the planet. Bottoms up on the Gatorade. You'll be feeling better in no time!

Been there, done that, and it isn't fun. Sorry you're under the weather. Take care of yourself and get lots of rest.

I empathize big time. Too many of my teen years were bothered by episodes of acute bronchitis and pneumonia. The pain of breathing was insufferable. Then there was the clammy skin, the sweats and coughing. If I'd had kids to worry about then, well, I can't imagine that. You feel better and save your blogging chops for when they are really going to be needed: the period before and during the trial of "the beast" when the need to keep his crimes in the public forum will be greatest.

And apologies to bloo, but I'd think you'd be better off with water and blood oranges -Gatorade is one of the great gastronomic and esthetic taboos :-0! [:-)]

Thanks, guys! Wouldn'tya know, within 24 hours of my follow-up appointment on Tuesday (where I was declared "hunky-dory"), I again started having the chest pains. :(

That was the pleurisy (infected fluid around my lungs)coming back with a vengeance, I guess. Being sick is something I do not handle well. I'm never sick. And I have two little kids and a husband to care for, to boot.

By 7 p.m., after a a day full of my wild and beautiful kids, working, household chores, dinner, family things... I just can't muster the brain power and intestinal fortitude to blog. When the kids' bedtime rolls around, I collapse. The Cellar forum upkeep is about all I've handled lately.

I'll be back soon- I do appreciate the e-mails and comments.
