Very Sick.

I thought when I woke up this morning that I was a little better, but actually I ended up worse today.

Marilyn has been very kind to me. At one point I was suffering from the fever and she kept getting me cold cloths to put on my forehead and neck (which felt just wonderful). She kept offering to go out and get whatever I wanted to eat or drink, as well. But I could barely eat at all today. When I did try to eat, I got terrible stomach cramps. I did sit up a lot of the day. Well, so to speak! Often I was in my chair with my feet on the ottoman and lying flat on my back as if in bed. So it was certainly not 'sitting up' part of the time! I was sleeping fitfully and dreaming and feverish and pretty miserable. I did see some of the US Open tennis today -- but mostly slept through a bunch of it. I saw part of Nadal's match, for example -- but I didn't stay awake to see him lose. So disappointing!

There's really nothing much to share. I feel very puny, probably because I haven't eaten much. I feel bad for Marilyn to spoil her vacation by being sick. We had talked about going to the beach over this weekend, which obviously didn't happen. But I guess it can't be helped. The only good thing is that Marilyn felt a little better today.

I never mentioned the bug bite I have. It's on my breast of all places, and is like a huge, hard lump. Very red. I've had this happen in the past with bug bites, but not for years. It started out very painful, then turned very itchy. Now it itches some of the time. It's sore if I press on it. It seems like maybe it's gotten a tiny bit smaller, but I'm not sure. I'll probably have to go to the doctor with it (I've had to in the past, too).

Nothing else to share, really...
