please excuse kate

from life this week. This includes, blogging (both writing and reading), e-mails, telephone calls and anything that takes place out of her bed. Her doctor has Rx'd antibiotics and bedrest (saying, "And I mean in the bed!") for five days to kick a respiratory infection.

No fun. It's my first antibiotics in eight years! But, I can certainly feel the need for both the suprax and the total rest. I'm getting better, but it will be a while before I'm well. No worries, though!

(Oh, and I still haven't had a reply re: my homestudy. Do you all realize this has been going on since JUNE? That's a long time when you look back. When it was happening, it was all little delays of sw vacations and more vacations. But, they sure added up to one l-o-n-g homestudy!)

Be back next week...breathing easier.

Feel better, Kate!! And your whole homestudy situation just stinks, IMO. I am really hoping you are done with this process SOON!!

I hope one of your friends is making you chicken soup to bring over. Stay in bed or on the couch with your cat and a good book. Rest and get better.

Ridiculous how long it's taken to wrap up your home study.

Definitely follow drs orders! A whole week in bed sounds fabulous, unfortunately being sick doesn't! I'm sorry about your homestudy... sounds like a complete nightmare!

Lea said...

It's so not fun to be feeling that badly. Hope you are feeling better soon....and I just can't believe this homestudy situation. That's pitiful.

So sorry you are sick Kate and still have not received news on your homestudy either. What a pain for both things. I hope you get well soon and hear from the SW too.
