Signs of Life


Has it been a month?  It simultaneously feels like a lot longer and much shorter.  Either way, I've been having serious LJ withdrawals - I feel so disconnected! Imma attempt to catch up a bit... We'll see how that goes. 

I've spent the last couple of days between the bed and the couch. My boss sent me home from the clinic on Tuesday so I'd stop contaminating the patients. I thought it only fair that I return the favor... I've been fighting colds, pharyngitis, bronchitis, etc. off and on since November. This is by far the worst episode and I am by far the poorest patient. Thankfully this is my weekend off and I hope a few days of rest - and no further exposure - will settle things down. It's the nature of working in healthcare in a new city - new bugs to be exposed to. That coupled with the crazy fluctuations in weather - it's 70 one day and 17 the next, with the shifting temperatures accompanied first by rain and then ice. I hate ice. Scares the crap out of me when I have to travel in it. Thankfully, we only had a few days of truly icy weather and treacherous roads.  

Work's been steady - balancing clinic and hospital.  I'm enjoying it overall. There's always background drama at the clinic, but I find it entertaining more than anything. And catching babies is awesome.

I suppose the most excitement this past month was when my bathroom ceiling caved in. Evidently, my upstairs neighbor's tub developed a crack in it so her bath water leaked into the ceiling. It wasn't that dramatic, actually - nobody fell through while bathing or anything - but it was pretty funny.  Seems that leaky roofs are part of my lot in life, but at least it was in the bathroom and they took care of it pretty quickly. 

I'm not sure how coherent this post is, but I did want to reconnect. I miss y'all.

Hiiii. *huggles*

Sorry to hear that you are sick. I've been crazy-busy writing the past four days, so I'm only now finding the time to go back through my flist. Hopefully the worst of it is now past and you can semi-enjoy your weekend. I say "semi" enjoy because you don't want to overdo!

And eeeeek, bathroom ceiling. Thank goodness no one was in either room at the time. Did you take a photo?

Thanks for the well-wishes, dear.

I did get a photo after the maintenance man came and made the hole a nice square... Such a random thing to happen. :-}

Hope you had a good weekend!

I guess it's true that doctors make the worst patients?</p>

Hope you feel better soon!

*hugs*

Nice when your landlord can handle the leaky ceiling, no?

I'd offer you some of my chicken soup if I thought it would ship well. But more *hugs* and virtual chicken soup.

Having a landlord in this case was pretty sweet, actually. And thanks so much for the offer of soup - and the awesome recipe. You're a sweetheart! *hugs*

{{warm & healing & gentle HUGS}} oh, hon! it's just not fair: you're so selfless in the comfort and healing of others that you should never ever have to feel under the weather yourself. or at least, that's what i think! i have spoken, universe, hear me: make antesqueluz 100% well and energized and back to feeling totally spiffy right this second! please take very good care of yourself and i hope you're already feeling better by now. i'm behind on lj and just now seeing this post. i've been thinking of you, though, and wishing you all the very best. hang in there, hon!

Thanks so much for the well-wishes, sweetheart. I really shouldn't complain - I'm just a lousy patient. I hope you're doing well. *hugs tight* Take good care! <3
