Recovery Mode

Even though I promised I would blog every day, the new month isn’t off to such a good start. In what can be a coincidence, while on my way back from India, I caught some kind of cold-cough infection, most likely on the plane or at the airport. When I got back to San Francisco, I was feeling sluggish. The nose was starting to stuff. The throat was sore and itching. I was feeling a bit tired. Oh, oh. I thought, did I catch the virus? 

The next day, I went and got the new booster and a flu vaccine, both at the same time. Before heading to get my shots, I tested myself — negative, and I have tested negative every day since. I even tested negative on the PCR test. So it must have been the common cold with a dash of jetlag. But it sure did feel like the dreaded virus. I had no idea what had happened. I have been down since, and it has taken almost ten days to recover from whatever was the affliction. 

This morning, though, I feel much better. It feels good not to be all stuffed up, and I can walk without wheezing. I feel pretty bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to get going.
