In which all I can say is ugh

So, my streak of never having come home from a con with con crud has now been broken -- I've been sick all the rest of this week with black plague -- or the bubons, as Jon Stewart was calling it last week. God, this is awful. It stayed in my lungs till last night, and as uncomfortable as it was hacking bits and pieces of my esophagus, at least I didn't have the chapped red nose and snot dripping all over the place that you get once it moves into your nasal passages. But move it did. The worst part was that yesterday, even though the skin-hurting, joint-aching part was diminished when I got up, I had an excruciating migraine on top of the coughing. It is really hard to fight vomiting when you're coughing severely. I've been a whimpering basket case.

But I have too much work to do to whimper too much, so I've been trying to get it done and just soldier on. In between I've been trying to deal with Dad's stuff, but this is turning out to be a lot more complex than I expected. It's hard to get his address changed with social security, insurance, etc. -- I don't know his account info like passwords and security prompts, can't ask him, and there's no place to actually go to talk to human beings about a lot of these things so I can show them DPOA and ID. At least with the bank and investments, I can do that.

He had an... episode before I left that really disturbed me, and I was pretty worried about him all weekend, but unable to get any kind of updates. I am so frustrated with everyone. Even hospice. No one calls me and updates me, and I have to wait forever to get callbacks from anyone. I just want some kind of answer about what his condition truly is, but no one seems to know. He recognized me when I visited on Tuesday even though he was really out of touch, but I haven't been back since because I'm so sick. There's something about not knowing if he's riding the crazy train or not that's distressing.

Been trying to catch up on TV while I've been working and lying around. Man, Justified is en fuego this season; I can't believe that when most series are having their sophomore slump, this show is actually getting better and better. I'm loving every second of it. Speaking of Justified, I've ended up with two sets of season 1 DVDs, thanks to a lovely gift from [profile] aka_arduinna, [personal profile] therienne, and [personal profile] merryish right around the same time I broke down and ordered one for myself. Rather than return my set, would anyone like it for cheap, say $10 for the set and postage?

I would totally buy that Justified S1 set off of you, if no one else wants it!

And either way: *hugs you* I'm so sorry about the con crud. I hope you feel better very soon.

Hey, I'm sorry I took so long to reply, but of course you can have them! Yay, I'm excited they're going to a good home. And of course, this is a good excuse to get together with you...
