When you live in the Kingdom of the Sick you learn not to make too many plans.... but after spending a week in NYC because of daily blood draws and EKG's, I was planning. All I wanted was a full week away from hospitals.... I was thinking of spending the last days of August near a Rhode Island beach..
here I am in a room at Sturdy, my local hospital. It is nothing serious. Yesterday, I developed a fever. It was just 101ºF but enough to make me run to the closest emergency room. That's how it is in our Kingdom, an insignificant fever is never insignificant. I was hospitalized yesterday and will only be released when the fever disappears. I better pretend that this hospital bed is a beach bed.
