BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

The doctor sent me home today. My white blood cell count was back to normal, there's no more wheezing in my lungs, etc. etc.

As I expected, I'm on bedrest, but, in in unexpected, and happy, news it's only partial. :) The doctor who was taking care of me was a hospital staff doctor; tomorrow I see my primary care doctor and I still have to see my Asthma specialist.

I've heard back from some of the publicists I emailed over the weekend and they've been wonderfully understanding. Jax, although she's starting a new job, is going to pick up some of the slack while I recover, and we have a guest review from Liz, who did a guest review for us a while ago.

I did get some good news yesterday - I was one of the winners of an eARC of Demon Bait by the writing team of Moira Rogers.

So, I'm home, resting, trying not to overdo it. I very much appreciate everyone's support, both here and on Twitter. It's made the experience more tolerable. Thank you. :)

  1. Yay! I am so glad you are doing better Bea! Take it easy girl! Don't over-do it! Congratulations on the win! :)

  2. Thanks :) I'm very happy to be home and winning the book definitely boosted my spirits. :D

  3. Glad to see you are back home and feeling a bit better! I know how asthma can be.

    Winning a book is always a bright spot in my day too!

  4. Glad to hear that you're home. Take great care.

  5. Thanks Bella, thanks Jinky. :)

  6. I’m glad you’re feeling better!! Just keep taking it easy now - no extensive happy dances, unless maybe they’re virtual.  Hope the partial bed rest is history soon, too.

  7. Thanks Pia :)

    I'm a lot more tired today. I actually showered and dressed, cleaned the cat box, had a doctor appointment and went to the library. Exhausting work! But I'm getting there, I can go longer in between doses of albuterol (rescue inhaler). The progress is slow, but there IS progress.

  8. Great to hear that you're back home Bea. Take it nice and easy and if you have the option, get a fridge for beside the bed, put some snacks and milk in, then bring your kettle, coffee/tea supplies in and that way you only have to get up to go to the toilet. LOL

    Then book heaven.

  9. @The Falcata Times - I like the way You think!
