Brief Blog Break

Hi, all. Greta here. I wanted to let you all know: I went into Kaiser today about the bad cold/ asthma attack I got this weekend, and it turns out to be pneumonia. Not to worry or freak out — it’s not a terribly bad case, and with antibiotics and other nice modern medicines I should be okay in a week or two. But I’m going to be home and out of it for several days, sucking down cough syrup with codeine and breathing steam nonstop. So the blogging will probably be minimal to none for the next few days. (Also, while the Best Sex Writing event at the Center for Sex and Culture on Thursday is still happening, it’s extremely unlikely that I’ll be there.)

And yes, the timing on this is so spectacularly bad as to be comical. This is definitely going to go down as one of the five worst months of my entire life. Hopefully I’ll be able to look back on it someday and laugh grimly. Anyway, just wanted to let you all know. Take care, and I’ll talk to you soon.

    WTF is it with pneumonia these days? You’re the third person in my (extended) social circle who’s been stricken with it recently. Good luck and heal up soon!

    Good grief, first Orac succumbs to “death flu” and now you’ve got pneumonia?!? Is there a computer virus going around the blogosphere or something?
    Take care, Greta, and get well soon.

    David D.G.: “Good grief, first Orac succumbs to ‘death flu’ and now you’ve got pneumonia?!?”
    You took the words right out of my mouth. It had to happen to a couple of the, IMHO, sanest bloggers out there, didn’t it? :(
    Normally I don’t like doing “me, too” posts, too, but I think “Get Well Soon” posts ought to be an exception. So then …
    Get well soon!

    At least you are sensible enough to seek proper modern medical attention, unlike these idiots:
    Get well soon.

    While you are recovering, here is a BBC Radio 4 program, “The Greek Myths”. From the program “In Our Time”. Entertaining and enlightening.
