Completely selfish prayer request

I am, for want of a better word, drowning in email, links, regular mail, stuff to do, and so forth, and I’m having an awful time getting focused to do the paying work, and also get the blog prepared for a Lenten post.

I also seem to be fighting off another bout of bronchitis.

Would very much appreciate a small prayer whispered up, if you are so inclined. Thanks.

    May god help you through this period of difficulty, Anchoress.

    Please take care of that bronchitis. That’s nothing to scoff at. I had it twenty something years ago and, though I may sound a little melodramatic here, it was the closest i ever came to death.

    Prioritize in three piles: (a) must do, (b) should do, and (c) could do. In times like these, toss out the “could do,” set aside the “should do for later,” and tackle the “must do” right away. :)

    Done. God bless you.

    Big prayer – shouted!!

  • MJ

    Prayers have been whispered up. Take care and feel better soon.

    As a frequent bronchitis sufferer, I feel your pain. I’m sure you know the steam-inhaler-Mucinex drill, but I also just heard of the surprising efficacy of lathering the soles of your feet in Vicks and putting on thick socks. Hey, what can it hurt?

  • Maria Byrd

    I am happy to prayer for you, Elizabeth. I will remember you at Mass.

  • NanB

    I can relate. When I get bronchitis my doc recommends lots of vitamin C and magnesium. Sending prayers your way. Get well soon!

    If you have not had your pnemoccocal vaccine yet, please consider getting one. Chronic bronchitis sufferers are at a higher risk of pneumonia.

    You got it..

  • Myssi

    Done. Been there, done that… hope you feel better soon.

  • Sally Thomas

    Praying, and will remember you at Mass tomorrow.

    Take care of yourself. Prayers up.

    My prayer for your well being are a daily occurrence and well-deserved by your lovely self. I’ll ramp it up a bit.

    I too have been feeling “scratchy” and disconnected in general. It’s all this snow that global warming has caused /sarcasm off/and its effects on my daily life. First being snowed in for 5 days while we were shoveled out and then the stresses of commuting into D.C. where the mayor of the Nation’s Capitol hasn’t a clue that allowing snow to pile up in traffic lanes can cause gridlock! I think I need to cook!

    Just now catching up on my reading, so I’m a day late, but will pray for you all the same. As a previous poster said, we need you! Hope you are feeling much better, very soon.
