7668 - As I think, I'm using up the time left to think


Nightmares last night, sadly forgotten before they could be transcribed.

The momster brought over some tea and wildflower honey yesterday, and that soothed my throat quite a bit.

I'm still feeling ill, but at least I don't have St. Vitus' Dance.. My symptoms got pretty bad yesterday-(blotted to protect the squeamish) sore throat, coughing up thick green solids, blocked ears, vomiting, hot and cold flashes (with sweats), restless slumber, clogged nose, soreness and weak joints, fever, muscle cramps, uncontrolled liquid stools (usually during a major coughing or sneeze), thick milky output at the tear ducts (after a few hours' sleep) - a low-grade but yucky mess. Taking Tylenol while I wait to visit the doc this morning.

Newt was a good little buddy, and hung out close by while I took hot or cold showers to feel better, and curled by my side while I napped off and on throughout the day.

Consumed yesterday - 1 gallon of orange Gatorade, 2 quarts of Apple juice, some amount of tea between those two.

Took down (well, renamed) the audio folder for the moment, until I can change the htaccess info again against certain bandwidth chewers.
