I haven’t been sick since I started this blog in 2013. My health streak was broken on my 6 hour flight home to California yesterday. I could not stop coughing. When I got home, I got into my own bed and covered up to stop the chills. I slept a long time.
I wasn’t sick for the entire time was in New Jersey. I was called back there because my mother was dying. She passed away shortly after I arrived at her bedside. My brother and I were both there when she died.
After she passed away my brother Dave and I had a lot to deal with. Dave did the lion’s share of the work with the burial arrangements; we both cleaned out Mom’s apartment; we were struck by the nostalgia of some of the items we came across.
I wish I could write more today, but I’m feeling really crappy, with a fever of 101. I wonder if my illness is related to Mom’s passing, and letting my guard down.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get back on my writing schedule soon.
