Last week was Stella's turn at the community cold/cough. This week it's my turn. If Stella's experience is typical, it lasts about two weeks. I'm not absolutely dead, but I doubt I'll be blogging very much. Thanks for your patience.


  1. Wellness and healing vibs to you both!

    1. Thanks, Michael. I think Stella is on her way back to health; soon enough, I will be, too.

  2. Yeah, I'm on my second week of that crud and the congestion and cough is going away, but still feel lethargic. I shoulda got the flu shot before I got the flu :(.

    1. Sorry you caught it on your way through TX, BadTux. FWIW, I had a flu shot this year, the so-called "geezer-strengh" version, and it didn't stop it outright. My impression, though, is that Stella had a worse version of the bug than I did. She pretty definitely caught hers at her employer's offices; we don't have enough guests through Our House for her to have caught it that way. And I caught it from Stella... it's the hazard of being the stay-at-home partner, which I have been even back when I worked as a contractor. Some things can't be avoided! :-)

      Yes, get the flu shot from now on. You may as well enjoy the benefits while they still (mostly) work; one day soon, I'm convinced, they won't.

  3. Saturday, wee hours... still feeling yucky. Delsym does a pretty good job on the cough. Adequate nourishment is a challenge; I'm the cook who doesn't feel like cooking. Not going anywhere I don't have to; mostly pharmacy and P.O. and quick desperate grocery trips. Gotta feel better soon; need to resume my usual rounds. Thank you all for stopping by!

  4. Careful distant cyber hugs to both of you... going through the same stuff here, only we have four people we can play catch the cold with..
