I'm getting sick of this...

Ok, I don't look as bad as this poor fellow, but I surely feel it. I fully expected to be on the steady mend, and back into everything by this time. The spirit is more than ready, but the flesh is definitely holding back. In fact, I've been feeling steadily worse, so I went to a pulmonary specialist today. After examining x-rays and doing a lot of listening, he's treating me for pneumonia and has given me an arsenal of strong antibiotics.

Anyway, thanks so much for all the prayers. I've had tons of cards, notes, e-mails, and calls from parishioners, students, and friends far and wide. I can't adequately express my appreciation, and I hope to be back full-steam very soon.
