The past week was comprised of several acres of sleeping, a variety of coughs from a phlegm-shifting bark to a wheezy airless hack, the swallowing of many small sharp edged rocks, and the application of an ever-tightening metal band around my head.

In other words, I have man-flu.

More technically, I have a chest infection (confined to my left lung) the result of which means I have 4 weeks worth of antibiotics to take. I’m on the mend.

Normal service will be resumed shortly.

    Glad to know you’re still alive.

    Lung infections suck – I used to get them on a regular basis. No fun.

    I think I’m getting sympathy pains – wheezing like Muttley when I try to sleep??

    I hope you’re feeling better and non-infectious soon!

    In the meantime, better living through chemistry! Take those pills and keep me in a job!
