Quick Plan Update: Apparently, I Can Function In Society!

First, though, let's all stand and salute Melissa who single-handedly and without the benefit of medical technology diagnosed my faux Monkey Pox faster than my doctor could. Granted, The Sheep is highly specific in her complaints and will repeat herself several times until she is getting the attention she so craves, but it was still pretty darn impressive if you ask me.

It took the better part of the day to get the doctor's office to return my calls. Despite Dr. Judy not hearing any congestion the pix don't lie: The Sheep has pneumonia. Melissa caught it pretty quick...I mean c'mon! Dr. Judy had a stethamascopie and zappy things. Melissa had the fussy rantings of a feverish sheep. It seems somewhat unfair that my insurance company will be reimbursing Dr. Judy... Either way, I'm still calling it Monkey Pox. I like the sound of that better.

Other plan elements included the wearing of shoes and the exchanging of pj's for clothing. Done. I was able to get my brother over to have a look at the truck and, while the engine light remains aglow, it looks like it's Ok...just soaked wires.

I wish I could say that the fever was fully squelched but we have had a few tweaks of temp. throughout the day. However, I am going to choose to pretend those didn't happen and forge ahead. Tomorrow, I return to the salt mines. The doctor cleared me for all the physical types of stuff that I have to do in a normal day and didn't seem too concerned about the short fever jumps.

Normality: Here I come!!!!

Oh, and I even have a bit of fiber news to report! I got about half a bobbin of the corrie done today and wound off the small amount of jacob that was taking up another. I've been wanting to do this as a 3 ply and see if it might work for a vest similar to the one I completed back when I was trying to reduce the old stash. As far as I'm concerned, that's the final test, here:

When I'm planning spinning and knitting projects, recovery cannot be that far beyond my reach. Hope springs eternal, isn't that what they say?

Take That, Monkey Pox/Pneumonia!
