So, we taught Steve’s doctor a new phrase today, “con crud.”
That was after we rose early, after a very restless night, and I said to Steve, “You look worse than you did last night when we went to bed. Should you call the doctor?” and Steve said to me, “I think I’m going to call the doctor.”
Phone call made, we were given a gratifyingly quick appointment with the Actual Doctor, who ordered a blood test which he admitted probably wasn’t needed, but he’s a conservative fellow, and prescribed cough medicine and rest.
So, that’s the order of the day for at least half of the Lee-Miller Household. I’m feeling much better than yesterday, myself (no headache. MAN, I hate headaches.), but, with Steve’s example before me, will try to weave some rest into the remainder of the day.
In other news, the FINAL final cover for Dragon in Exile was waiting in my inbox this morning, with a nice note from David Mattingly. This is a full wrap cover, which means the scene starts on the front of the book and finishes up on the back. I think it’s gorgeous, and am pleased to see a nod to the very first cover to grace Agent of Change (art by Stephen Hickman).
For those who collect art, David is making a limited number of prints of this cover available. If you’re interested, write to him at davidATdavidmattinglyDOTcom
