One Week Left...

I have been "sick" since Chanukah with my acute nasopharingitis or chronic rhinosinusitis or GERD or whatever the heck this is, having been diagnosed, re-diagnosed, and misdiagnosed by various and sundry doctors, forever!  That is why the word 'sick' is in quotes.  I still, after all these years with the same symptoms, have no idea what this is that I have.  I have had no fever, no muscle aches, and alternately feel weak, tired, and constantly coughing up...well, never mind. 
And I'm leaving for Israel in a week.  Just great.  Today I am feeling a bit better, but still coughing up, and losing my voice.  How to teach in that situation? No clue.  I do have a doctor appointment with my new (yes, another doctor) physician on Thursday, but that leaves very little time to get Rxs and rest up before flying.

We will be in Israel for six weeks, and probably most of the time we will be helping our daughter, Rambo, with moving to another apartment, if she's found one, visits to the hospital, etc.  We will be seeing our grandchildren (whom my D. H. has never seen) and spending time with our children.  There are friends, old friends from thirty years ago, whom we want to see, several up North, from Haifa to Ma'alot--but with our crazy schedule (we will also be going to the U.S. Embassy and Sochnut) I don't see how we can.  In other words, this is not a touristy 'fun trip.'

I am stressed out, which is probably contributing to my illness.  In addition, we have to plan for the end of the trip in New York, where we will be for my niece's wedding. Where to stay, what to do for Purim and se'udat Purim--and how to do all this without spending lots of $$$, which this trip is going to cost us, anyway.  Now, I really feel old.

Here's to wellness, energy, and family--unstressed!
