On the Mend - Flash 55 Friday, June 25, 2010

I guess I'm hardy like this sturdy dandelion!

Five days in the hospital,

Really wiped me out,

That I’m feeling somewhat better,

There isn’t any doubt!

I’m still on wonder drugs,

To keep the bugs at bay,

Could be they sap my energy,

I so want to go and play!

I need computer time, for sure,

My blogging friends are such a cure.

  2. Oh get well... please we miss you so!
    Still you write wonderfully, no matter thos e drug effects...

  3. That's a fun poem, but I don't do anything in 55 words or less. Explaining myself is complicated and wordy.

  4. So glad you are feeling better and back to writing poems......:-) hugs

  5. Nice 55. Now relax and get well!

  6. Monkey Man - Being a nurse makes being a patient
    especially hard! I must admit, though, they
    were so nice to me at that hospital!

    Dulce - I'm so glad to be approaching some
    semblance of normal ( which is still far
    from normal!). I still have a lot of
    catching up to do on my blogs!

    do this flash 55 - I, too, am quite a

    Bernie - I'm definitely starting to feel better
    but I hate talking these golf ball sized
    pills - two of one antibiotic twice a day
    and one of another twice a day - plus all
    the other stuff that keeps me going in my
    advancing years!

  7. oh, I do understand about the need to go and play Carmen, I hope you will be able to do soon.

  8. Kat_RN -
    I'm pretty relaxed, sleeping too much, I think!
    Thank heavens I have a comfortable bed.

    betchai - it's a good thing Jo is busy most of the week...I don't have any playmates with free time. I'm going to try to go out to hear jazz on Sunday morning, though...I have a friend who sings at the brunch at the Burlingame Hyatt - I can sit at the musicians table and I don't even have to pay for brunch!

  9. I hope your feeling better,

    reading blogs is so much better than most of the books I have. I like the variety and individual personalities so much and I feel like I've gotten to know people to some extent!
