bronchitis!

Well, I went to the doc yesterday morning and I have bronchitis and a sinus infection. He gave me an antibiotic and something for my cough. I spent yesterday in bed, watched a great old Clint Eastwood movie "Hang 'em High" and drank tons of water and cranapple juice. My fever has gone and I finally got a little rest last nite and this morning so I came into the office for the afternoon. I couldn't stand lying around anymore, lol. Hopefully my antibiotic will knock this puppy out and I will be back at the gym by week's end. Thankfully, I am feeling well enough to get to RCIA tonite. I really don't want to miss that class, as I think I have become mildly addicted to it, lol! Thanks to all of you for your well wishes of good health!

Interestingly enough, it seems that my patron Saint (St. Andrew) not only is the patron Saint of Scotland (from where I've descended) but the patron Saint of the prevention of sore throats and for those who suffer from them. So, I did humbly pray to St. Andrew that he might intercede for me and help me got over this ailment of mine. Why not, I say?

I am working hard at maintaining my fear from economic insecurity. This year is off to a slower start than I had hoped or planned. And of course, that means there's a major strain on the finances. If things don't pick up soon, it's going to get ugly, lol. I actually had a few decent deals going in February but one by one, they all blew up... I do hate it when that happens. I am however starting on a couple new ones but business isn't where I'd like it to be. Hopefully that will change! I just keep trying to remember that I need to do the next right thing in front of me, keep plugging away, and have faith that God will take care, like he always does!

Prayer for today...

God/HP/JC... Thanks for another sober day and thank you for doctors wives, ibuprofen and antibiotics. Thanks for chicken soup, cranapple juice and Clint Eastwood movies. Thanks for getting me on the mend. I'm still not feeling the greatest but I am feeling much better than I was yesterday and Sunday, man! I pray that my step mom's brother who just died has found peace in your arms, Loving Father. He was a deeply troubled soul and I have faith that You will take care of him now. I pray that I might continue to market my business with the faith that things will pick up and we won't get in too deep, financially speaking. I know that You are looking after us and I try my best to be patient as I know You have a plan. I will continue to pray for knowledge of Your Will and the Power to carry it out.

peace be with you all!

Bronchitis is nasty, had it for 2 months at the end of last year. Take extra care, you don't want to relapse (I mean the bronchitis).
