Thoughts on my last day of quarantine

For the love of all you find holy, do not show up to my birthday party this weekend sick or recently sick.

Look. Usually, I get one big winter sickness and then it's over. I'm down for a week and recovering for another week or two.

This year?

I have had maybe two to three weeks of not-sick since Thanksgiving. Cumulative, not continuous. Given the massive failure of my lungs to recover from the November/December and January illnesses, if this norovirus had been another respiratory thing, I would almost certainly just be in the hospital at this point.

I have books to write you guys I cannot be in the hospital.

So please. Please. Please. I adore you, I want to see you, but I cannot handle another illness, physically or emotionally. I will either cry or cut a bitch and I don't even know which, and I'm pretty sure you don't want to find out.
