Friday, September 10 - Day 12

Wake up. Try to hydrate the Sahara Desert that has become my mouth. Soak in a hot bath for as long as possible. Get dressed. Gingerly lie under a blanket, trying not to move a muscle. Watch out for nosebleeds when sitting up and leg cramps when standing up. Avoid citrus – anything acidic is not good, not good at all. Ignore splitting headache untouched by Tylenol. Concentrate on books, magazines, and DVDs provided and recommended by thoughtful friends. Reply to some easy emails from the office. Keep drinking fluids. Let our cat Figaro curl up next to me and purr the day away. Repeat the next day.


  1. Sounds to me like you could use some iced tea. I have a huge variety...can I bring you a pitcher? White tea? Peppermint? Decaf vanilla? Ginger peach? Nothing quite hits the spot (for me) like a tall cool glass of iced tea. Let me know if I can be of any help.

  2. Thinking about you! Wishing you strength and that time passes FAST!
