Closing shop for a while!

It got worse. I'm not sure when I'll be able to resume birding (or work), but I'm just writing a quick post to let readers know that my immune system decided to go on full attack with an acute allergic reaction and ended up in the hospital last night. I was diagnosed with Cellulitis, which is a bacterial infection of the skin. In addition to antibiotics, I'm on a longer and heavier round of Prednisone. What a bummer! Just as migration was starting to get interesting, I'm out of the game. I won't resume blogging again until I've recovered enough to get back in the field. Hopefully, the medication will resolve things soon. Good birding!
