I am back at home, discharged from the hospital earlier in the week. The cultures finally came back as positive for H1N1 influenza. I am still feeling pretty wiped out and not up to writing much. But I did want to give you a short update. Laying in the hospital, I did think of quite a few things to write about. Being in a feverish stupor at the time, I hope that I can recall some of them. I have really gotten off schedule with ther blog. Hopefuly I can get back to writing in a couple of days. Being sick with this flu was like having cancer in microcosm. As depressing, inconvinient, and distressing as this was, it’s hard to re-imagine the burden of active cancer. Talk to you soon.
