I don’t know what I had. It wasn’t the flu. I didn’t have the huge fever body aches the flu usually has. Nothing affected my stomach. I had a slight fever from Tuesday through Saturday, but it came and went. The big thing was how it affected my lungs. It wasn’t bronchitis; I have had so many ENT/tonsillitis/strep/sinusitis/bronchit
The biggest side effect of this is the loss of oxygen over a long period of time. I am out of breath when I talk, I get dizzy quickly, I can’t walk long distances, my fingers, lips, toes, tip of my nose, and face are cold and tingly, but I get better when I am at rest.
What I want to know is why before Katsucon? It seems I get sick a lot right before Katsucon (and this also happened with Evecon), but this may be due to the season (I got sick this time of year as a kid, way before cons). I am glad I am not scrambling last-minute programming or pre-reg, let me tell you. OC I could run in my sleep now, and have often thought it might come out better that way. But until they get someone else to do it, I am happy to keep the chaos down a little. Man, I hope Chance (my new assistant) gets to me in time. As it stands, she’s coming from Virginia Beach Friday morning, and they are predicting some major snowstorm...
Yeah. I recall KatsnowCon from 2003, and I don’t want a repeat of that mess. The last update said that snow was coming tomorrow, but would end Wednesday for sure, but I am still keeping my fingers crossed.
