Hey Good People!
I am almost there! I think I am 95% close to full recovery. The doctor said I had an upper respiratory infection (isn’t that just a fancy way of saying I have a cold?). My mom swore I might have walking pneumonia because I was coughing so much. I do believe these virus’ have an aggressive strain because this thing wouldn’t let me lose! I was out of the office for a week. And when I came back (because I was running low on sick leave and still sick), I felt so bad for coughing, hacking and snotting on the train, on the bus, in the office…plain ole EVERYWHERE! Anyhoo…I am feeling back to my old self, so you might catch me at one of these events.
(I just noticed most of these events are celebrating women! Let’s support this wonderful events.)
