No Mass for me. I am sick with a terrible cough and fever.
The cough is one of those that goes into horrid spasams and gaging that can end with vomiting (and as a middled aged woman, it can cause me to lose bladder control). I can be just fine then BAM here comes another round. It would be too disruptive in Mass - not to mention embarrassing.
Vocal prayer is out, talking brings on the spasams.
So, here I sit - doing some reading, feeling like the worst Catholic in the world.
