Unexpected 3-Day Break

It was a normal Sunday morning. I weighed myself (because this is normally my cheat day and I get to see where the results of the week got me.) It was pretty odd because I decided to weigh myself the day before also and came in at 199, so Kerry predicted 198. 196.5 popped up instead. So, almost 30 lbs. lighter.

But something had been bugging me all week. A gurgling/bubbling sound when I took a deep breath. (Of course, my answer to that was not to do that.) I left work early last night and went in to see the doctor today. Yes, like many others, I'm down with bronchitis. (Some doctors are believing that that is the form the latest flu is coming in and is being diagnosed the same.) The urge to go finally get looked at came when I thought, "If it is what I think it is and it progresses to pneumonia, Kerry is going to kill me for ruining the wedding."

Anyhow, I'm off for a few days in recovery. In the non-sleep moments, I will take the time to do a few CD reviews for the Web site and maybe finish Stephen Hawking's A Brief History Of Time. And since I'll be doing some of the recuperation at Kerry's house (which has a less fussy computer), I may be able to post some blog comments that I feel very bad about not being able to do previously. Anyhow, I hope all is going well and that you and yours stay healthy.

Sorry to hear about your illness--but it's great that you caught it before it got REALLY monstrous.

Feel better soon.

Congrats on the weight loss. I can't wait to see you again so I can marvel at the hunk that is YOU (lol). Also, so sorry to hear you are feeling icky. I hope it gets better soon -- cause nothing would suck worse than ruining the wedding with health issues.

All my best.

Being sick sucks, there is no doubt about it. At least you are using the time smartly, though. But congrats on the weight loss! The big day is coming up and you will be looking quite svelt for it.
