For the first time in almost two weeks, last night I successfully went to bed WITHOUT coughing, gagging or throwing up my dinner! Success! I still have a cough and am working through my 6th box of lotion coated tissue but I'm feeling a ton better. My voice is almost back too.
Unfortunately, to get to this point this means doing nothing but sitting at home while I get better. During my down time I've been knitting a Shetland Triangle shawl. Tonight discovered (after finishing my eighth repeat!) that I may have used needles that are too small. The lace pattern isn't that visible so I may rip it out and start over with larger needles. Sadness! I've put it aside, I'll decide tomorrow.
