Hard down this week.  While scoping out photographic and video locations in the mountains Monday I came across something that generated a previously-unknown allergy attack or created an infection.

Now, with a raging fever, breathing difficulties and other problems I finally gave in today for medical treatment from Carilion.  Amy, who has pushed for this since Tuesday afternoon, was threatening violence.

A nasty bout with pneumonia during my recovery and rehab from my motorcycle accident in late 2012 has left my immune system in less than idea shape, something I should have considered before traipsing off through weeds, hills and farmlands on Monday.

I woke up with a sore throat Tuesday and symptoms increased during the day.  Now, I’m sick and having to scrap plans for activities over the next day or two until the MD’s can figure out what is wrong.
