WEll, remember that cold I talked about a few weeks back? Well, the cough is still hanging around. I went back and the doctor put me on an inhaler so hopefully this'll do the trick.

I'm still on the first phase of the transcript (condensing the subtitles) so perhaps within the next few days I'll start on phase 2: the actual transcribing.

I hope everyone stateside - an all those abroad - have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I've been fighting a cold for a week so I went to the doctor today and it's an upper-respitory infection. Yay! So I'm o antibiotics (which were actually free through the Publix pharmacy) and a heavy duty cough medicine that should let me sleep through the night. At least my work schedule this week has been helpful. I only had to call out once.

So, during this down time, have I done any work on the next transcript? Have I done any work on my DW/Psych fic? Nope. I'll try to get some done tonight.

I had to go into work today because they're changing our insurance and I had to sign the papers. One bit ofgood news: the crappy doctor who pawned me off on a pharmacist whne I called after having a cough for a week? He's not on their list. Normally trying to find a new doctor is a pain in the butt but I really don't care this time. I still have that appointment Monday and that's it.

I'm feeling much better and coughing less. I even took a nap today which is very rare. I think I actually slept due to the fact I took cough medicine right before.

I'm working on re-typing a Doctor Who fic that is a WIP. If anyone out there wants to take a gander, please let me know.

Remember when I first posted about having a horrible cough and cold? Well, I still have it. I couldn't get an appointment with my doctor until Monday but it was really bugging me yesterday and today so I went to a walk-in clinic right by work. The doctor's assessment? Acute bronchitis. So I now have antibiotics, cough medicine and an inhaler. Yay. I have to go in tomorrow but I'm off Friday and Saturday which will be helpful.

Oh, and in other news? Mets are #1! (I'm bragging while I can)

I called in sick this morning. Really what's the point if you have to deal with the public all day and have little or no voice? I'm going to see if I can get a doctor's appointment to figure out just what is going on.

So not a good day. I woke up and was still iffy with the throat and voice. I was so close to calling in sick but I figured I'd go in and try to stick it out. Not good. I ended up pretty much talking to co-workers in a combination of whispers and hand signals. On top of that, I was alternating hot and cold, chills and sweats. Got out a couple hours early. I came home, put on the steam kettle, took a hot shower, changed into PJs and had a hot cup of tea with honey. Oh, and since I will be in my room for the evening, I can get some writing done and work on my new cross-stitch.

I feel like one, anyway.

I've been having a soreness in my arm for a couple months and finally went to the doctor today and they confirmed what I had already thought: tendonitis. I have a brace just under my elbow and anti-inflammatory prescriptions. We'll see how things go. Tonight being Dad's Poker Night, I get to start Mom on a new show. I'm torn so I'll let her decide.

i believe that to be the only major news for me. Just counting down until I can buy my spring training tickets!

A couple of weeks ago, I got out of bed and could barely stand on my left foot. I thought I had bruised it or something so iced it and wrapped it. It still bothers me so the other day I figured I'd look up the symptoms online. It sounds like I have Plantar fasciitis "is inflammation, usually due to injury, of the plantar fascia, the ligament between the front of the heel bone and the base of the toes that helps to support the arch. It causes severe pain on the bottoms of the feet, especially in the morning." According to self-treatment, I have to ice it 3-4 times a day, wear arch supports, don't go barefoot, and stretch it. If it's still not better in another week or two, I'll go to the doctor.

In happier news, I'm going to my first spring training game of the year on Saturday to see the Mets v. Cardinals and if there are no changes to the rotation, I think we'll be seeing Santana!

Writing has slowed but I will make myself work on it and I've also been doing some more cross-stitch.

Well, I guess everyone takes my last story for granted that they never even thought of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I loved that story and even made a trip to Sunnyside, Washington Irving's home in Tarrytown. If you know where to look, you can see it from the Tappan Zee Bridge crossing from NJ into NY.

I'm going to do a literary quote one more time to see how well it's received. If poorly, I'll return to either lytics or tv/movie. So let's try it.

Fire burst from its open mouth, its eyes glowed with a smouldering glare, its muzzle and hackles and dewlap were outlined in flickering flame. Never in the delirious dream of a disordered brain could anything more savage, more appalling, more hellish be conceived than that dark form and savage face which broke upon us out of the wall of fog.

In other news, last week I had some horrible infection--upper respitory or sinus, I don't know. It started with a dry throat and cough before moving up into the head. Nose wasn't really runny, but it was stuffed as were my ears. My head felt heavy too which makes me lean towards sinus. Anyway, luckily I had 2 days off to try and recover but I still felt miserable come Friday plus I had very little voice. So I put in a call to the ENT and by afternoon I had a Z-pack. All better now. Hopefully, it's cleared out of my system--vacation in a little over 2 weeks!

OK, I think that's all! : )
