Since the beginning of the week, I dropped off the blogosphere because of a triple-whammy illness. The doctor diagnosed a sinus infection and bronchitis, which would have provided sufficient misery on their own, but I also suspect strep throat. A couple nights ago, I woke up with a searing pain in my throat, like razor blades cutting into my flesh. Simple things like breathing, speaking, or swallowing became major ordeals.
Lately I've able to catch these things before they get too serious, but this time I got bulldozed.
