Ship’s Log–July 31st


Another day spent on the couch coughing, aching, sweating, and feeling sorry for myself. Being sick sucks. Poor Thing 1 had thing for two weeks, and now she stuck back in the house with her extra-crispy sunburnt skin, also sitting on the couch feeling sorry for herself.

I suspect my poor immune system is overwhelmed with both the virus and the wound and isn’t gaining much ground on either. All I can do is rest and try to give my body decent fuel.
