Am I still here?

The large, pink, horse-sized antibiotics are slowly allowing me to talk and move.
Is it really necessary to make a pill too large to comfortably take? These things are about the same diameter as my thumb.


Saturday, while I was still able to stand, brought us our FOS pine siskin:

Just one. But a nice one, nonetheless.
We got our first siskins ever, last year, the day before heading to my first Cape May weekend.

My ear is still full of pus, my throat is not on fire anymore yet still smoldering, and my sinuses seem to be full of something akin to Silly Putty. There are two more programs scheduled for me this week, and it is still up in the air as to whether I will be able to do them.
I hate being sick. I really hate being sick for a week and a half.

Well, glad you got something to whack the heck out of the marauding infection.

I hope you feel better soon!

Hopefully the anti biotics will take effect soon. It usually takes 2 or 3 days for me to start feeling better while on them.

I hate feeling sick too. You strike me as the type that likes to go 24/7 (like me) and illness can totally mess that up. Grrrrr.

Just give your body time to heal to get ready for the holidays.

Hope you feel better soon.

Cancel the programs. You need to rest, drink plenty of fluids, and REST!

I agree with Carolyn. Somethimes you need to put programs on hold. I took a day off from work when I was ill a few weeks ago but I wasn't nearly as sick as you...

Feel better, Raptor Woman!

Hope you're feeling better. I've taken those giant pink horse-pills too. I find that downing them with a warm brandy really helps.
