Your paracarditis is back, says the doctor. As if my heart needs one more thing to help it feel as if it can't take another beat.

Today, Boo and I are in the den. We are drinking lemonade (you know the saying when life is lemons you make lemonade, so it's the drink of choice at our house these days )

So we're talking, the house is quiet, and the TV comes on. The movie playing is Waterworld, and it...
