I’ve been doing so much reading because I’ve been sick and unable to do much else. We did get the girl to her doctor, so we know there’s no strep around here. The doctor wouldn’t rule out mono, but wouldn’t test for it either. (I don’t really like this woman, and we usually try to go when the nicer physician is there.) She said that since they don’t do anything but treat the symptoms if it is mono, and the contagion period would have been 60–90 days ago, she doesn’t see any reason to run a test.
Yes, you aren’t “supposed” to be able to get mono more than once, but I’ve had it several times, and it seems that Katie has it again, too. That isn’t so unusual with people who have chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia.
I wanted something light to read that didn’t suck, and I ran across the mention of Shirley Damsgaard’s Ophelia and Abby mysteries somehow recently, so I got them from the library. I just finished the first, Witch Way to Murder, and I’m tickled to have found new series of “cozy” mysteries that I like.
Combine two generations of witches, a librarian (who does needlework!), a personable cat and dog (and no, they don’t talk, thankfully), and a sexy sidekick in a small town where everybody thinks they know everybody else’s business and you have a very nice little setting. I won’t tell you much about the plot of the first book, but it is fairly good. I’ll be reading the other four books in the series now since they’re on my shelf.
