Thoughts on my last day of quarantine 
28th-Feb-2011 05:12 pm
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.

Honestly, Hon, I think that is perfectly reasonable and understandable and *wise* to put that out there right now.

*hugs* I hope you are feeling better.

I do no blame you ONE LITLE BITTY BIT.

Sadly, I'm gonna have to postpone, then. It feels as though I'm fighting off something, so I dare not take the chance (grumbles at not seeing the 'song, but thinks of walking for change and other fun things).

Yeah. The last time my in-laws visited, it took me a month to recover from the plague they brought, and I generally have a pretty robust immune system. I am all in favor of telling folks they should not visit while sick (if, that is, they are rude and clueless enough to begin with to not realize that on their own)

In that case I may need to bow out. I'm supposedly not contagious, but I am still on the antibiotics for the sinus infection that knocked me out for most of last week. I'm still kind of snotty, so yeah, that may mean I should skip.

I was really looking forward to 12th Night, BUT I completely understand and will see you some other time. I just hope you're well enough by then to enjoy it!

Not sick. Crossing my fingers I remain not-sick for the intervening days.

To that end, because Dominus has been pushing himself too hard and is beginning to cough, and because my sinuses are looming threateningly, we will spare you our alien NY virii, even if they are only hypothetical.

We'd love to see you, but we'd really not love to be the plague vectors that do you in.

Happy birthday though!

I have had maybe two to three weeks of not-sick since Thanksgiving. Cumulative, not continuous.

Ditto, here on the other side of the continent.

I am so bloody sick of being sick (on top of the CFS, fibro, chronic daily migraine, chronic bronchitis - which is really waking up again), that I have no words for it. Just a lot of whining, when I'm capable of being verbal at all. *growl*

I feel we've been in pretty similar straits. *hug*
