17 days out

It has been a good week for progress. Last night, Thursday, was first night in own bed all night without much coughing though still plenty of phlegm. Expect that for another week. Eating normally and just careful with liquids. Still Using thicket with water, thin juices, hot chocolate etc. Doesn't taste different but a thicker consistency so goes down more easily............

.have had three outings into the cold NH air: ushered at Jazz concert Sunday without talking. Town meeting last night as silent loose coughing observer for first half. Today going x-c skiing and then a massage. Oh, nice. My body gets tired just sitting around. Have been using ski and bike machines at home this week. Weights too while watching news of missing plane, etc............

continue to get lots of cards and email notes which is nice! Haven't felt alone though just sitting at home almost 2 weeks now. Have had 3 visitors though it doesn't make sense to have many as not talking much. Voice is low and husky but soft and clear without breaks so far. Seems to me to be on track. Doing usual vocal excercises: right really ready beautiful do (from Cooper) and ma me ma mo, counting, alphabet, etc. Should try reading outloud today. But seems like easy does it. Not to overdo I guess..............

Wondering about skiing this next month. The snow is so deep and beautiful..........

Any questions, send them along in an email to randrstuart@gmail.com. Not sure comments here get through to me or anyone. Anyone having success posting them? ...........

more to come in a few days. Dick
