Christmas has been pretty miserable this year.
What I’d thought was a chest cold was in fact pneumonia, and in the coarse of coughing over a week or so, I finally had such pain I went to Immediate Care, where X-rays confirmed both the pneumonia and a cracked rib. That on top of a jaw so sore from all the dental work that I can’t chew has left me on soft diet. The pain meds make me nauseous, so I’m getting along with Tylenol. The rib will take 4-5 weeks to heal, the jaw isn’t getting better but there’s nothing to do about it, and the pneumonia seems to be responding to the antibiotic prescribed, though those are making me nauseous. We cancelled Christmas dinner, which was going to be a real treat. Maybe when I can chew…
So I’ve spent most of the time in bed. I got one fantasy paperback, a book on pruning and a classical CD. Also a new lens for the Nikon. I’ll try to talk more about those when I feel up to posting again, maybe in a few days.
Happy New Year to you all.
