Rant-antibiotics for a MONTH for pneumonia in addition to the 10 days I've already finished. Officially puts an end to the possibility of competing this season in skating. Even harder after watching Nationals today & seeing my favs win their 4th straight title in Ice Dance! Go Meryl & Charlie :) I missed my January trip to Canton to train & visit due to illness. Won't be able to get back until June.

Go Meryl and Charlie!

Yeah, pneumonia is a drag but the bright side is you didn't end up in hospital with a collapsed lung (or two). But I'm sorry about your skating season. :(

Yes, it definitely could be worse. I'll take the antibiotics, breathing treatments and extra inhalers so as to avoid the hospital. I am feeling better, just slowly.

And yay for M&C!! They are such talented skaters and awesome people. I really hope they can pull off a second Worlds first place finish this year too!

I'll still have school & dance (plus fish & cat) to keep me plenty busy. Maybe I can reclaim my title next season.

You have to have the breathing treatment too? Did you get the home nebulizer thing that makes it look like you're smoking a hookah? You got it pretty bad. :( I got pneumonia in third grade and it took the doctors a while to diagnose it (an allergic reaction to sulfa drugs didn't help) so by the time they figured it out, my lung had partially collapsed. That was a waste of a summer. :P Got it again two more times after that.

And the best part is, those two are still young and on a roll, so I'm looking for a repeat in 2014 Olympics. :) They remind me of the best ice dancers ever, Torvill and Dean. I think Meryl and Charlie are going to be on par with them by the time their careers are over.

Yep. Sure did. I have a pretty nasty case of asthma to top it off. I guess it makes it easier for me to get infections. I feel so tired most of the time, but all that medicine makes sleeping hard.

What you had sounds particularly bad :( Never had a collapsed lung before. I'd really like not to start now, since I don't have health insurance.

You couldn't ask for 2 better skaters (or nicer people)! And they have been together since they were 8 & 9. Meryl's 25 now & Charlie's 24. Young for top ice dancers. I am really looking forward to the showdown at Worlds this year & the 2014 Olympics.

Here are links (not mine) to the performances from last night & today.

I know some of you (if not most... heh) will scoff at me for this, but I really hate it when someone texts you and you text back and they don't reply... THEY texted YOU, so THEY should be the ones to reply. >.> Grrr. Frustration.

That is all.

Night Gossip.

Nope, I wouldn't scoff at you, Betta Slave. I always feel the same way when people do that to me via e-mail.

Wow, it would be cool to know someone who is going or has ben to the Olympics. I knew a girl once who knew Paul Wylie, the ice skater. I think she sort of knew the skier Picabo Street, too.
