Tales of the Heavily Medicated

Sorry for the blog silence this past week, but I fell victim to the creeping crud that seems to be running rampant. No, not H1N1 (though the in-laws & nephew have that) but just a nasty cold that went into even nastier bronchitis.

So, I have antibiotics, and an inhaler, and the really GOOD cough syrup. Y'know, the kind you can't take and drive. Sadly, it's not the cough syrup I'm having problems with. It's the inhaler that's making me loopy, of all things. I know, I know, it's possible I'm a mutant.

But, today I felt at least human, so me & kiddo and Gita went back out to Ren Fest. I corrupted Gita, she now owns one of the Badger Blades swords too. (if I hadn't already made my purchase for the year, I'd have bought this one myself)

Kiddo also got her hair braided in one of those really fancy patterns. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow.

Needless to say, being high on inhaler juice hasn't made writing easy. In fact, I haven't done any of it at all. I doubt I'm going to hit my 40K-by-the-end-of-September goal. But that's ok. I'm over 30K at the moment, and that's at least better than nothing.

I spent the week with my mom on the hospital (an operation to fix her arrhythmia, they fixed one but discovered another) and I spent the weekend in the Emergency Room with several abdominal pain, which if the doctors are right could be a sign of a stomach ulcer.

Joy!

I hope you feel better soon.

Ugh, this has been the WORST year, health-wise, for everyone I know. I hope your mother's doing well, and you take care of you!
