Oh Blech.

So, here we are, 6 days before the big Handel and Bach concert with Chamber Choir... and I am sick. I think that I would best characterize it as a cold, with the unfortuante side effect of a lost voice. The voice is not completely gone, and I'm hoping that it doesn't get any worse. I'm taking all measures I can think of to make this go away: Cold FX, Vitamin C, Hot Water, Ricola, Robitussin (gag), and vocal rest.

I think that I should be good to sing by the orchestra rehearsal on Friday, and I'm trying not to think about the possibility that I won't be. All positive energies are being focused on getting better!! Also on keeping WH healthy between now and then.

We did manage this weekend, amidst the sick and the Lent 1 Morning Prayer service and the local Lutheran hymn festival yesterday afternoon (for which WH played the organ), to get our house cleaned, which feels so good. It's so nice to start a concert week with a minimum of clutter and mess and dust about the place. It sets me up nicely to do some more organizing in our office space in my week off - next week already! HUZZAH!

And so the week begins!

I try to hesitate giving out unsolicited advice, but last time I was sick I tried drinking hot water with lemon juice and honey because I had heard it was helpful. It did seem to help me, even if it was just a placebo. Good luck and good health. I will be thinking of you.

We like Emergen-C. Also, I have singer and preacher friends who swear by the homeopathic remedy, "Singer's Saving Grace."

Plus, pitchers and catchers report this week. That has to make you feel better!!
