Throat infection?

I have no idea if this is a healthy-looking ECG reading. To be honest, I’m not even sure if it is an “ECG reading”. It was one of the few medical-related images I have in my extensive clipart arsenal.

I’m now beginning to worry that I’m not going to be well enough to conduct the services at Christmas — the first of which is less than 48 hours away. On top of the post-viral dizziness I now appear to have a raging thoat infection. The glands in my throat appear to be the size of torpedoes, armed and dangerous. And I’m sure I have a temperature.

I’ve spent the last few hours in bed, to which I shall again retire. This isn’t fun. Please pray for my health.

Maybe I could just mime the Christmas story as my sermon on Saturday night …
