Oh poor me

I'm in a pretty pathetic state at this point.

Broken wrist. Chest cold. Three-day-old headache. And now laryngitis.

Things I am unable to do at this point:
- Tie my own shoes (or anybody else's, for that matter)
- Button my own pants (ditto above)
- Sign my name
- Change a diaper (no, really)
- Stay on my feet for more than 30 minutes
- Sleep a whole night without injury to myself or others
- Dig up my potatoes
- Utter a coherent sentence
- Speak audibly

So the burden of many of these things goes to my wonderful, and pregnant, wife. The rest will just have to wait.

But at least I can type a little now. And laugh at how pitiful I am.

Oh dear, but then things can only improve, can't they?
Hope you start to feel a bit better soon.

Yah, I think laughter is really the only option at this point. That and lots of chocolate. It helps the healing process. No, really, it does!

Maybe this can all be chalked up to a character building experience and besides, if you believe Nietzsche you should be a veritable Schwarzenegger when you pull through!

Thoughts, prayers and optimism from the Mia/Beo household.
