Welp, I'm finally back among the living. Mostly, that is. I've still got the neverending cough and don't feel quite 100%, but it's definitely better than its been.
Huge thanks to this handsome lad for all the TLC. His patience has been remarkable, really, considering how long this illness has been going on. Thanks, babe, for every little thing you did. You are incredible and I love you madly.
