Why I have not been blogging

Medicine 002This has been my life of late.  Yesterday, I broke down and went to Watson Clinic after two-and-a-half days of severe fever, headache, muscle ache, congestion, etc.  In triage, the nurse got readings of a 104+ degree Farenheit temp and a (get this!) 230+ bpm pulse!

I had asked the admitting staff to please expedite me because I really felt I was near the point of fainting or worse and was rebuffed every time.  Once these vitals were read, though, I was rushed into an exam room and immediately administered Tylenol and an EKG.  The EKG showed a pulse of 120+ bpm, a much better scenario.

Long story short, I have the flu and am on bedrest until Monday.  Oh, and I have a very large medical bill now. 

More later.

Sanchez was a drummer of impeccable time and a deep pocket. I recall at least on Rogers composition that just floored me. I wish I had more to say, but time and the medication has fogged the memory a bit. [...]
