Sunday morning here, and we are locked in for the 10:00 AM standup count. This count occurs only on Saturdays, Sundays, and Federal holidays.
My diet of eating mackerel
with rice each day actually worked. Over a six-month period, my cholesterol
went from 204 to 176
. My triglycerides
and the bad cholesterol
number were also lower!
Not an easy feat in prison!
Somebody started a rumor that the wheat bread sold at the commissary could be used to make white liquor! I’m not sure how true that is, but now right off the bat the bread goes, so my third meal, which was PB&J
, is now PB&J on Saltines
Not as comforting to be sure!
The bad news is I have been as sick as a dog due to an upper respiratory infection. The health services department decided that it might be a virus, and declared that I did not need antibiotics.
My illness is made worse by the mold growing in the carpet in the day area.
One of the brighter inmates decided to use the sprinkler head as a coat hanger. When he went to pull his sweater off the hanger, the sprinkler head popped.
It was a Saturday evening and it took the staff here over 45 minutes to figure out how to turn off the sprinkler system!
Do you have any idea how many gallons of water this was?
The mold smell is still bad four weeks later.
Meanwhile, I have managed to have my immune system beat the bug.
