It's been kind of a stressful week here at the BlueTower, as we have two geriatric relatives who are ailing: My step-grandmother, who is very much a real grandmother to me, is in the ICU with complications following heart surgery (as if heart surgery on a patient who is 90-something could be uncomplicated to start with). And Hudson the wonder dog has been mostly off her food for a week after a bout of vomiting and diarrhea we believe was caused by a round of antibiotics for a skin infection, and it doesn't take much of a hunger strike to make a skinny 13-year-old purebred dog seem to waste away. My tendency to internalize this kind of stress has now bitten me in the back, if not the backside, as I am now suffering with a backache, which is not only the first I can recall in over 10 years, but also by far the worst I've ever experienced. The good news is that both patients seem to be doing better: The doctors say our grandma is on the right track after a few setbacks, and after being taken off the pills, Hudsy is slowly starting to get her appetite back. It was only after things started looking up that my back attacked me, so I may manage to still be ailing as everyone else is recovering, which is fine by me, as it would mean that everyone else is recovering.
