I’ve been gradually getting better since my whine last week. There is a bit of a lingering cough, but I can finally sleep in the bed again rather than relegating myself to the couch. The combination of the build-up and Arapaho’s extremely dry weather has resulted in an unprecedented number of boogars. I mean seriously, they just keep coming. This, too, is an improvement over what was happening with my nose when I was sick. It’s not just that there was build-up, but the constant dampness in the nose was giving me acne inside the nose, which is not a comfortable feeling.
Clancy has been getting a little more sick as I have been getting better. I can’t claim all the credit for that, though. For a couple days last week, her entire afternoons were spent treating people with symptoms similar to mine. So I choose to blame them.
