I'm still holed up in the bedroom watching Law and Order reruns (rest in peace, Jerry Orbach) while trying to get over my cold. I need to stay strong for Ziggy. It's very hard knowing how to deal with this because he has always been the one to take care of me. I also feel bad that we're going to miss my friend Casey's wedding tomorrow, and I'm not even sure he knows this (I sent e-mail and left a message on his answering machine but he hasn't responded). We extended our vacation two days just to go to the wedding, after all.
At least we are in a comfortable warm home surrounded by family. They have been so helpful and have really done a lot more for Ziggy than I could do myself, especially now that I have this cold.
When we get over this we're both going to take up yoga, for real this time. And regular meditation and breathing exercises won't hurt either.
