Bronchitis Still Winning

Back to the doctor yesterday! Saw my regular family doctor this time - an internal medicine specialist of whom I am not very fond. I haven't liked her very much since she came aboard the base. Don't know why, just don't. Probably has something to do with the fact that she let my ear infection go untreated back in October and it resulted in a burst eardrum. Anyway, she said she has orders for Kuwait this summer and I couldn't be happier for her. She says the bronchitis is probably viral and will most likely last another week or more. She did prescribe Cough syrup with codeine and that is helping the cough, and some more drugs to help the symptoms. I am feeling discouraged to say the least. I'm still wheezing and feeling very tired and out of sorts. I WILL get over this! We WILL take this trip in two weeks!

Since I am stuck here for two more weeks I want to sew but am too tired to concentrate. Some of my friends both here and online finally convinced me to purchase EQ6, a computer program that lets one design one's quilts using over 4700 different block patterns and with the ability to even scan in your own fabrics for designing purposes. It arrived yesterday and I installed it. It looks good, but involves learning. In my drug-induced stupor, I finally managed to get through the first lesson and it looks pretty easy and fun. I already designed one quilt that I want to make (red, yellow and orange of course).

I am totally convinced that the greatest gift God ever gave me is my dear husband Joe. He has taken such good care of me. When I am weak and tired and don't feel like doing anything, I don't have to. He does it all without my asking and without complaining. I don't know what I'd ever do without him.
