Can you say "Bronchitis"?
Yesterday, I finally got to feeling bad enough and coughing all the time, that I caved in and went to the doctor. I was trying to avoid it because we don't really have a regular doctor; we usually just go to the walk-in clinic. They hand out antibiotics like they are candy. Since I assumed it was just a virus, antibiotics wouldn't have helped. But when I got there, there was a new doctor! He did some blood work and ordered a chest x-ray, thinking I might have walking pneumonia. No pneumonia but I do have bronchitis. After picking up my $75 (with insurance) worth of drugs, I headed home to collapse on the couch. The cough syrup he gave me for night time really knocked me out. It's effects are still hanging around this morning! It is taking some real effort to move at all! I am feeling better though and am not coughing as much.
I sewed on some pineapples this morning. After finishing the 5 blocks I was working on, I discovered I already have 31 blocks made! That's enough for a nice lap sized quilt. Ian keeps asking me who this quilt is for and is not very accepting of the answer "I don't know!"
I think it is time to go read in bed for a while!
