When I was in the hospital a couple of weeks ago, the pulmonologist had dropped into tell me that after all these years (about 24), I no longer have ABPA (allergic bronchopulmonory aspergillosis), but she didn't say what I did have.  Today I was back to see her, and specifically asked what the diagnosis is.  I should have known.  I never get anything spelled with less than 7 to 10 letters.  Now what I have is ...  ta da! bronchectasis!  Seems I have four different "bugs", as she put it.  We're treating them to antibiotics.  Hope this does something for the blankety blank *&^$% cough!


There are times when I think I've left my brains in my other pants.  I'd decided earlier today that I would have a slice of pizza for lunch.  So when Cliff asked me what I wanted, I thought that's what I said.  I blinked when he brought me a half a bagel.  "No, no!" I protested.  "I want half a ... ba  g  e..l?"  And I realized I had -- twice -- said the wrong thing.  Cliff is standing there, waiting for me to make up what's left of my mind, and I started to say, "What is it we get at the pizza place ..."  Oh!  Slight pause while that registers.  "I'll have a slice of pizza, please."

  1. Well, so that's why the thing was only printing gerbil-ish! Now get better. None of this bronchiectasis stuff.

  2. Mmmmm, pizza bagel. I little bit of A and a little bit of B.
