I am a sick man.

Ok, resist the temptation to interpret that headline for yourself, will you?
For the past three weeks, I've bad bizarre headaches....bizarre in that rather than the normal "I ate the slushy too fast" headache, it's been only on the right side of my head, from the very top down through my jaw and neck. My teeth hurt. My right ear hurt. My nose hurt. My face hurt. Heaven knows my face has hurt others.

Add to this a respiratory infection that seems to have limited my lung capacity to that of a regulation hacky sack, and you get the idea. I've been in rough shape. I've been eating ibuprofen like Girl Scout Thin Mints. I'd start out ok in the morning but by 6pm I was dragging.

I finally went to the doctor. Turns out I have the Mother of all Sinus Infections to go with the respiratory infection. The Physician's Assistant prescribed two things - an antibiotic in the form of a pill roughly the size of a Chicken McNugget and an inhaler. When I went to pay for the inhaler, I thought they made a mistake and were selling me street drugs - it was that expensive.

All that to say that I'm back on the road to health and wholeness...if I can survive the cures.

A couple years ago, I got a respiratory infection that was so bad, I couldn't get out of bed. The antibiotics they gave me were about the size of a regulation golf ball. I feel your pain, I really do. And, I'll be praying for you every time I check your blog. (Thanks to my work day in front of the computer, that's about 60 times or so...)

We'll be praying for you. Suggestion: Try a little BBQ sauce on your McNugget.

Aw Randy, I've heard that chick fillet has really great fries to help down that mcnugget. Really though-I'll be praying for you-especially as you travel this week. Blessings...
