Baby Steps

Thursday, 13 November 2008

I have started to emerge from the fog that is meningitis. Most of the pain is gone, though my back is still a bit sore. I tire so easily and am not quite as sharp as I usually am. My doctor assures me that exhaustion, back pain, and mental dullness is all normal. And temporary.

I have started back at work in a limited capacity. This will enable me to have the energy needed for emergent situations. For example, we have had a death in our shul and the fact that I am ill is of no consequence. The bereaved family has the right to expect that their rabbi will be present in their time of need.

So in-between the most critical obligations, I sleep and do my best to shake this darn thing!

And be back with more thoughts from Frume Sarah’s World. .

    I hope you have a quick and complete recovery. What a tough time you have had over the past few months. I hope things are better in the futute.

    Oh no! Get better soon and I hope the recovery period is not too horrible. That always seems to be the worst…the part AFTER you are deathly ill and you come home from work and just want to sleep! Refuah shleima!
