I've been a patient in the dermatology department at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem for 12 days. Although I was admitted with erythradermic psoriasis, eventually tests showed that I (also) have a drug reaction, or as the doctors here pronounce it, "drag reaction." Nobody knows which "drag" is making trouble for me, but meanwhile I am much improved, thanks to being slathered all over with various potions twice a day.
With no prospects of immediate discharge, I managed to get a macbook and have it delivered to my bedside today! This has improved my morale and I can pretend I am home, reading blogs as usual, except for the background sounds of Russian conversations and the occasional moan from the occupant of a neighboring bed.
Don't bother to comment on this post. Just send healing thoughts my way, please.
