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.

  1. Feel better! Water, rest, more fluids… Sorry you’re under the weather. I always think plane illnesses are the worst.
