It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme, “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?“, hosted at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.
How things change from one week to the next. 2 weeks ago, we were celebrating the end of his receiving care from the visiting nurse. Then, this week – he spent 4 days in the ICU. He hadn’t been feeling two well Sunday and Monday. Thyen on Tuesday, when he got back from dialysis, I knew he had to go to hospital. He looked terrible. I ended up calling an ambulance. They knew it was an infection, but couldn’t find the source. Took til Friday to identify it as sepsis, probably related to the incision/surgery. He had been receiving high dose antibiotics all week. He came home Saturday – a lot weaker and sore. Let’s hope this is the end. His birthday is Wednesday – hope he is a bit stronger by then. Will definitely be a very low-key day.
So, my reading suffered, as I spent time at the hospital and at home, I flitted from book to book. Novellas worked best last week.
What I Read Last Week
I read 3 books– a romance novella, an historical romance anthology with 3 novellas and a woman’s fiction.
Kissing Under the Mistletoe was a delightful historical romance anthology with 3 novellas:
Great Scot by Suzanne Enoch
