Bent And Almost Broken

Now besieged by bronchitis that the doctor thinks I probably picked up at the hospital. Have been unable to talk, walk or really do much of anything except sit and watch the television. Watched all of Generation Kill again. It's a great show. Watched Norma Rae, and enjoyed the film immensely. Started Volver and finished Lions for Lambs (very disappointing film). I need good films and good television right now. At least my brain can wrap itself around them. Deadlines have slipped. Priorities are changing. My heart hurts. So does my chest from all the coughing. I haven't slept in over a week. First because of everything that was going on and then because I am coughing so much that I wake myself up every fifteen minutes. But there was light on the horizon today. Today, I actually picked up a book.

Amazing, isn't it, how the simple act of picking up a book can symbolize the return to (a new) normal?

Hope your feeling better soon - in heart and in health.

Here's a tip I learned from one of my son's teachers.... Get some vicks and put it on the bottom of your feet, and then cover them with a pair of socks before you go to bed. ( I know it hard to do in the heat) I swear by it, my son has asthma and I do it to him and he stops coughing after 5 mins.

Feel better soon!!
