a lot of meds

      So, at one point today I was honestly thinking about calling out of the show.  But, then I ate a peach and decided I could do it and that was that.  I don't know how much of it was the peach and how much of it was the shower I took soon after, but I just realized that I didn't necessarily have to call out.  I mean, I knew it might not be as fun as usual, but I could do it. And now, with this annoying sinus infection, my friends here have really stepped up. 


     Let me see, Gabby has shared with me her NyQuil, nasal spray (she was like, we're basically family--just stick it up your nose and snort), and gave me one of her z-packs.  And this wasn't just any z-pack, her mom gets a lot of medicine right over the border in Mexico, where it is stronger and cheaper, so I guess this is the good stuff.  Kevin gave me something homeopathic that dissolves on your tongue and tastes a little like a battery.  In fact, it is dissolving on my tongue right now...Emily has offered me an assortment of herbs that she keeps handy.  Erika has given me her wellness pills that taste like olives and go down three at a time. Yum.  Colt has asked if he can do anything.  John has asked me if he can get me anything.  John's fiance, Michael, was planning on buying me medicine and dropping it off before I told him that I really was gonna be fine, that Gabby had the hook up, anyway.  So, basically I am traveling with a full pharmacy minus one teeny little actual PHD in pharmaceuticals among the lot of them (but how much does that really matter?  Kidding, Jason Jazz!).  Anyway, let's just say I have taken a lot (on top of the vitamin E tablets and multi-vitamin I already take regularly), but more than that, am grateful for my friends and their generosity.  Which reminds me, I need to take three more of those olive-tasting wellness things...

       What else can I say?  Oh, I had to make this appearance tonight at this event sponsored by a local radio station called Ladies Night Out.  It was a package deal of cocktails and appetizers as well as getting to meet three of the ladies of ACL before they saw the show (which is where I came in).  My ears were all plugged up, so I had to really strain to hear them as I made small talk with the different women.  They were kind and interested and I gave them autographs and and was happy to meet them.  Come to think of it, though, there was a man in there--not sure how he slipped into Ladies Night Out, but whatever.  I am sure he was happy to be there. 

       So, I have been seeing pretty much the inside of my hotel room and the theater this week.  Tomorrow, I am hoping to change that.  See, I love Portland and I really want to walk around and see this town.  I have truly good memories of being here last time with my dear friend Betsy who did Will Rogers Follies with me.  So, I am planning on seeing the world again tomorrow.  Here's to hoping it happens.

I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for the "shout-out" to Jason. If you need round-the-clock pharmaceutical (or nursing) care, just give us a call! We could use a vacation- and we really loved Portland when we were there last.

Your Pop & I want you to get antibiotics. Can you vacation now in Portland, Jason & Susan?

It's hard to know you're sick. May God heal you quickly!

Bets--I wish you were here, too!!!!

And Susan, what? your fam of four can't just hop on a plane and meet me out here?!?!

Mom and Pop--I did go to a clinic and basically spent $79 for a doctor to tell me I have a bad cold. Go figure--he did prescribe some heavy-duty cough meds, though, which my insurance does cover, so that's good...
