Sometimes it’s better to just keep your opinions to yourself.
Joe Wilson. Serena Williams. Kanye West.
I’m jes’ sayin’. There’s a time and a place to express your opinion. I’m all for free speech. I’m all for honesty and openness and truth. No matter how great the wrong… sometimes by opening your big mouth at the wrong time, you change the focus from the injustice of the matter – to your lack of self-control. Like they say – it’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

and I haven’t posted anything here in five days… that should tell you something!

No, honestly, I’m just so tired of being a whiny sickly complainer and I know that everyone is sick of hearing about it so I’ve just stopped talking about it. People ask how I feel and I say, “fine”. It’s easier. I can’t breathe. I’m still running fevers every day. I have a nasty pain in my right side that is getting worse every day and I don’t want to do anything except sleep. Any post I would have made in the past five days would have said the exact same thing.

The good news is that the levaquin hasn’t made me as sick as it usually does. I’ve had five days of it now. I’m itchy about an hour after taking it and I’m a little bit queasy and achy… but for the most part… no major drama there. These little cough pills I’m on work really well… but the allegra isn’t helping much.

I haven’t felt like going anywhere or doing anything. I even went to sleep last night before Big Brother was over. I haven’t felt like talking to anyone. I haven’t even felt like eating unless it’s really sweet or really salty – I can’t taste anything. I’m still blowing enormous amounts of thick green slime out of my head. I’m still coughing up the same stuff. I’m so sleepy. I could sleep 24 hours straight.

I go back to see the pulmonologist on Wednesday. My goal is to hang tough until then… work as many hours as I can… and rest every minute that I’m not working. Austin has been great… he’s been cooking for us. The house is a wreck but we don’t care.

In other news outside my pity party... I have a new nephew born on 9/9/9. His name is Joshua. Ryan is in Atlanta this week so I had lunch with him and his BFF Josh yesterday. And...

That’s all I’ve got. Hope you’re all well. Love and hugs!
