Today I'm grateful for ... rehab.

No, just kidding! No rehab needed - so far.

I'm really thankful today for oxygen. Free, wonderful, draw-it-deep-into-your-lungs oxygen.

We spent the whole day cleaning out my mother's bedroom. From nine till seven, unpacking stuff, dividing belongings, putting aside what can be given away, and throwing away much of the hoard.

By evening my chest started constricting. Dust, emotion, cold, who knows. Every breath was hard labour. I haven't had asthma in decades.

The attack took a while to release, and wow, is it nice to draw deep, vitalizing breaths again!
