Happy birthday, Mother / health update

First of all, happy birthday to my mother! I just got off the phone with her, and she’s home from the hospital and doing considerably better and expecting to go back to work next week.

Secondly, I’m home with a cold. :-( I suspect I may have picked it up last weekend. If so, it was worth it. :-) It’s not the world’s worst cold, but it was bad enough this morning that I decided to stay home from work. Mostly sore throat and general icky feeling, but fortunately no stuffiness, because...

Thirdly, I’ve got my CPAP machine, and I’ve used it two nights now. (Unfortunately, the person who brought it only brought a nasal mask, not the full-face one and the mouth-only one I have on order. That’s why it’s a good thing that I’m not stuffy.) The first night (Monday night) I had a lot of trouble waking up during the night for various reasons, but I still felt a lot more alert and better-rested the next day. Last night I had much less trouble waking up (still did a bit, but not as much), and while I feel cold-icky today, I again feel more alert and rested than I remember feeling in a long time. So, that’s very good news!

Finally, I had a great Indian-dinner date with plumtreeblossom on Monday (after getting my CPAP machine but before coming home to use it for the first time), and Friday she and docorion (and maybe cathijosephine) and I are going to have Japanese food in Quincy, and then plumtreeblossom gets to discover whether she can fall asleep with Darth Vader breathing next to her. :-)
