Are you a convalescent?

I guess I will be soon as I am currently suffering from a nasty cold. The weather now is so changeable that one can easily catch a bad bug. Anyhow, let's take a look at our word today, which is


Who's this? The basic definition is that it is a person who is spending time getting well after an illness, a person who is recovering from an illness or who is recuperating.

A few examples from the Internet:
  • He was a convalescent soldier, going from the hospital to his regiment, and altogether too much of an invalid for the exchange.
  • From the time they are convalescents, the men are encouraged to make body movements which become progressively more active.
  • While in England he was a convalescent at 3rd Northern Hospital at Sheffield.
  • Jenny's motivation is the deep, passionate love she has felt for Adam ever since he was a convalescent officer.
  • Bertha ought to be able to write me every once in a while, while she is a convalescent.   
Therefore, my question today is "Are you a convalescent?" In addition to that, I would also like to ask "What were you suffering from? Are you a successful convalescent? How long have you been a convalescent?" Talk soon!
