Hello to new reader fatimusprime!

I can't speak for coughing; that's the most disturbing thing. I'm short enough of breath that I need to be actively controlling my breathing to keep it shallow enough not to trigger coughing fits.

Fever is down a little from yesterday, but everything else remains the same.

Adam's going to call the doctor and see if I need to come in the get tests run. (I'm not so much with the talking in complete sentences.)

Tonight's house concert is CANCELLED due to plague.

Elayna is not in pain, yay. *hugs the Elayna* She had a little anxiety with crosswalks yesterday (her first time using them since the accident), but she and Adam may walk to school today to do a dry run, make sure she's okay using the crosswalk the accident happened in.

* 5 comic book Halloween costumes that won't objectify women (and 5 that will objectify men!)
Good post on able-bodied privilege. I have a lot to add.

Daily BPAL
The Fool: apple blossom, peppermint, allspice, and yellow sandalwood speckled with grave loam and clods of grave dirt.
In bottle: Subtle mint and dirt! Like actual fresh potted mint plants.
On me: Dirt dirt dirt, with the afterscent of mint.

Falling Leaf Moon: The first autumn rains dripping onto fallen leaves against a backdrop of opoponax, labdanum, patchouli, agarwood, and oakmoss.
In bottle: Dead leaves, with a surprising sweetness.
On me: Dead leaves, less sweetness. Very autumn.

Can't breathe deeply enough today! Will retest later.

Daily Science
Pallas is an intact protoplanet!

I plan to spend the day mostly horizontal. Reading. Knitting, if I can arrange to get the longer circular needles from Emily. The sorts of things that force me to not exert myself at all. My chest in particular is feeling terribly fragile.

The plague sounds awful, and I hope it leaves you quickly! Concerns for pneumonia or bronchitis? Antibiotics?

*wafts some vaporub over*

I'm very prone to bronchitis, unfortunately. :( And I've had pneumonia thrice.

Basically, my lungs were the first thing to stop functioning optimally (at about the age of 4). I'm lucky to get through a year without being felled by something respiratory. So when my breathing gets wonky, that's a great big red flag to kick into self-preservation mode.

P.S. The worst thing a doctor's ever said to me: "The good news is you don't have bronchitis. The bad news is you've got pneumonia."

P.P.S. Keep doing what you're doing to recover, 'Song!

Ugh, plague. Hope you feel better soon.

Are you going to have a betting pool? I'll put my dollar on swine flu. I'm trendy. I will try to make sure I get bacon in my diet today, to strengthen my immune system.

I misread that as "Paella is an intact protoplanet."

And suddenly I envision a whole new Discovery Channel High Definition mini-series a la Planet Earth: 'Edible Protoplanets'.

Sigourney Weaver: 'Paella is the tastiest of all protoplanets. One bite and space explorers cannot resist her crisp yet tender rice covered surface verdant with seafood and other rich morsels. This is why all study must be done via remote satellite. Too many early astronauts were lost before we learned of the deadly protoplanets power. Greater than gravity is the pull of... flavor.'

Naa...Pallas is my laptops name.

I hope you feel better soon. -hugs very, very gently-
