You know that snotty/wheezy feeling I've had since Christmas? Turns out for at least some of it I've had a secondary infection in my left lung. Dad took me to the hospital and my blood oxygen was low, but after some ventolin and oxygen through a mask I was feeling a whole lot better! :-D
I've got to take 8 Prednisolone tablets a day for three days and 3 Amoxicillin Capsules a day for 7, and go to the doctors tomorrow to get an appointment with the asthma nurse. I still feel all snotty, but I can breathe!
While I was in the waiting room I was able to start reading Chinese Clothing by Hua Mei, and it's obviously not aimed at the home sewer but there are quite a few diagrams of types of clothing lain flat, which is more useful with these kinds of clothes that are mostly flat off the body and shaped by drape.
Don't expect piles of historically accurate chinese clothing to be forthcoming, but I could see myself giving a simple coat a try. :-)
