Nitty gritty Chicago video & Hilde taking good care of me.

Online Videos by

The trash truck driver got a kick out of me videoing the scene. I think this really captures the Chicago experience in winter well.

This is how she was almost all night.  Dogs always seem to know when their people need them, don't they?

You can see from this picture, my artistically deformed one of yesterday wasn't so much an exaggeration as an amplification.

I forget what I've said and to whom I've said it, but basically imagine having the stomach flu not for a week... not for a month... but for three months.  That's basically my situation.

So there's immense fluid and nutrient loss, interruption in sleep, general and cumulative loss of energy...

Did you get back to the doctor yet? I would just like to know what is causing this. Do THEY (the doc/s) have any idea?

By the way, the picture of you and Hilde is adorable. And I love the vid . . . looks like an opening segment to one of the Law & Order shows, or a Stephen King thriller.

You're right... we watch Law and Order religiously!

Our best guess as to the cause is a combination of too many OTC stimulants (espresso, Red Bull, etc.) and stress.

He upped my meds to deal with the latter, and I'm cutting WAAAAAY back on the former.

As for the pix... one of these days, when I'm caught up with the rest of life, I have hundreds of stills like this I'm going to make into a slide show.
