Hi, everyone. Well, I wish, for a number of reasons, that I had better news to share with you, but unfortunately I am even sicker than when I took leave. Despite a course of antibiotics, the infection has stubbornly remained and spread into both ears.

I'm just utterly exhausted: Even with a decongestant, the drainage causes me to cough so violently when I lie down that I haven't had a decent sleep in more than a week.

It's a lot damn harder to get better with an autoimmune disorder.

So, I'm afraid I'll be away for a bit longer. I don't imagine that I'm going to be back this week, so I'll update you next Monday.

Again, my apologies for the interruption, and please feel free to use this as an Open Thread for general discussion. Well-wishing is always welcome, but no one should feel obliged. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding. ♥
