Flash 55 Friday - Sick Sad Sack - November 12, 2010

Flash 55 Friday - Sick Sad Sack - November 12, 2010

Last Friday found me far too ill,
To do my fifty-five,
I grew worse every single day,
And barely felt alive.

Once again, I found myself,
A patient , not  a nurse,
And wondered if I'd exit,
In a shiny big black hearse!

But, nursing care and magic pills,
Have almost cured all my ills!

    This old body is mending...albeit, slowly! Did get out tonight to see Rufus Wainright at the symphony...nice.

    I still ache all over but am better. Aging is so difficult. Wish I were up to coming to Morro Bay on the 15th. My jazz singer friend, Sony Holland, is performing there.

    55 words was about all I could muster after that hospital stay and being so miserable!!!

    The good wishes of my blogging buddies was a big boost in my recovery!

    It turns out I had a bad bacteria, campylobacter, in my colon - gave me diarrhea for days, like Montezuma's revenge one would acquire traveling ( though I hadn't been anywhere ). When I started bleeding, they hospitalized me.

    It is so hard, I think, as I get older, to rebound from an illness.

    G-Man -
    I think modern medicine and these powerful IV antibiotics were what kicked this bacteria as quickly as it did. I was never so sick in my life.

    It's good to have friends like you rooting for me.

    Am happy to be better but so sad about yet another delay in coming to India. I'm beginning to think it isn't going to happen.

    I still don't feel up to par...seem to ache in every muscle and I can't find a pair of shoes to fit me. I had to go to see Rufus Wainright tonight wearing hot pink crocs.

    Writing something in only 55 words is a real challenge for me, I am such a talker!

  13. Hope you're now feeling much better. I'm guessing if you went to the concert, you must be well.

    I have been very lax about reading other blogs for a while, mostly due to time constraints. I see in your profile you call yourself "retired" and I remember when you lost your job and your benefits. Have things improved for you, I hope?
