    Moon, you are very lovely!

    Miss Shimmy! How wonderful your performance must have been! I'm waiting to hear all about it.

    Well, I am still recovering. Although I can breathe freely the antibiotics made me very ill, the cure is worse than the illness, I am on the mend. I'll be taking it easy and I'll have to build up my energy for dance slowly. I miss it.

    Have a nice weekend everyone!

    I have a horrible voice though, no dance will even make that sound right

    Today I got some pictures of the performance, I thought I'd post them here. They might look a little strange because I cut off the other dancers and the photographer mostly made pictures when we were doing slow movements so it might look as if I'm standing still, but I hope you'll still like them:

    Nice pictures Moon! I have to tell you that you look almostly exactly like my friend Carey who will be taking BD class with me starting tomorrow. They say everyone has a twin. Thankyou for sharing your dance pictures.

    Well, I returned from my beach vacation very ill. I thik the hotel had mold that triggered my asthma. It started of with a little congestion and by Saturday night I had a full blown asthma attack. There were a few seconds where I couldn't catch my breath and I had my husband take me to the ER. So I spent Easter Sunday and Monday in the hospital. I'm home now and on meds and my family is taking good care of me.
    Although it was almost impossible to get any rest at the hospital getting poked and prodded I'd like to say that the nurses were wondeful. The doctors might get all the money and adulation but these women are what makes it all work and they do all the work.
    Well, I must go and I'll just dream of dancing for now. Love to all.
    Oh No! There is nothing worse than an asthma attack! I know from personal experience. I have mild-moderate asthma myself that is triggered by allergens in late summer or by stress. Did you know that some hotels do not have proper ventilation and the air they recirculate has bacteria. My husband's uncle died from it! Lijanaire's disease? I can't remember the spelling right now. How terrible for you Babylonia and I am glad you are feeling better.

    A couple of other important points about asthma: even mild asthma can have deadly effects. If you asthma is not properly treated, even mild, you can have a life threatening attack or even death. A 21 year old man had mild asthma, he was being treated for it. He stopped taking the medication because he felt better and he went outside, something triggered his asthma and he had a full blown attack. Unfortunately, treatment was 20 minutes away and by the time help arrived, he had already passed away. Asthma is a very serious disease that needs constant treatment and medical attention. If someone you know has asthma, no matter how severe, learn what to do in case of a medical emergency so you can help them out. If anyone would like more information about asthma, let me know and I can get you the information.

    babylonia, did your husband contact the hotel to notify them of your condition? even though you have asthma, i would think the hotel would be responsible for keeping mold down to a minimal. i used to be a maid at days inn and out of the 6 months that i was there, never ONCE did we clean out the air vents or curtains or lamp shades. arent these the optimal places for mold/mildew to grow?

    well thats terrible i hope you get to new soon.

    i was thinking about gettting that dvd, but i have 6 instructional dvds. do you think one more is too much?

    do you watch fittv? there is a great namaste yoga show, i got the sunbird routine recorded to vhs this morning, its ideal for lengthening the back and abdominals. i have not tried it yet. ..

    asthma sounds horrible! I remember a situation in high school when we had to work seriously in class while we could hear a girl from another group have an asthma attack in the bathroom. She was coughing and crying and screaming for help and all her classmates and teachers were there to give advices and it felt like it took hours before someone decided to call an ambulance... It was so horrible, I can't even imagine how horrible it must be to go through it yourself. I'm glad you're doing better now, Babylonia.

    Kutenurse, I look like your friend? Lol, that's funny!

    No it's not too much!...I have 15 instructional (and 1 documentary, 1 performance) and I would probably be buying it myself but I have now booked my trip to Egypt and have to pay my dentist bill where I had my wisdom teeth out, plus a new six weeks of classes to pay for...so I have to stop spending for a while till I get some of it paid off...

    YES!!!! You really do! Her name is Carey. I do not have any pictures of her but you know what they say...Everyone out there has a twin somewhere.

    Asthma is not a fun disease to have or to live with and there is nothing worse than not being able to breath. I hope that girl turned out ok.
