under the influence

There have been writers who've claimed their best work was done while using alcohol and drugs. I'm finding it difficult to be articulate and witty while under the influence of cough syrup.

One benefit of taking all these drugs for the last two weeks is that I've lost my appetite and ten pounds. I could stand to lose 50 more.

Dorothy's been mowing the lawn and doing the weed eating. When I get back to it, I'll be wearing one of those paper dust masks. I've seen people doing their yard work while wearing dust masks and now I know why. And I'm joining their ranks.

Wednesday, I'll see a pulmonary specialist and we'll start the detective work that should determine whether this is adult onset asthma or severe allergic reactions to something in the environment.

You don;t have to be humorous, we're just glad to hear from you. This next week is everyone's time to see the doctor, most of my blog friends are going for one reason or another.

Please be sure to keep us informed. Funny how that matters when you've known someone electronically for over a year....

How glad I am that you are feeling well enough to post. Hope that things progress quickly from now on.
Love the John Adams quote.
