Been sick all day,

I really hate feelin’ this way,

I even took off of work tomorrow,

Guess to the doctor I have to go…


Hungry I am tonight,

Afraid to eat anything but something light,

Two or three crackers before turning in,

Please God, don’t let me get sick again…


I haven’t been sick in a good three years,

Probably why this is giving me the fears,

I rarely get anything, let alone a stomach flu (?),

Will be glad when I can say to this sickness adieu…

As i read this i suppose you are still in the hospital recovering, and taking it slowly but surely on the way to being back to Good Ed, my friend and mentor too. Please get well fast so you can bike, and swim and go about your life good friend.

A person never appreciates feeling good until he feels like excrement. I wondered what this was about at first, because I have never taken yuh for a cracker, although it's more than obvious that yuh are crackers. Here's hoping yur health takes a turn for the better, you Jersey Shore surfer dude, you....

Sometimes your system just needs to be cleaned out,
it's your body's way of saying its time so it will
knock you down. I rarely get the flu if that is
what it is.
But! you should go to the doctor it should have
cleared up by now!

Hugs and hope you feel better

Love and Light
