Down for The count
Caught the flu either on the flight to Michigan or at my uncle's funeral. Have had a week that is just sorta hazy right now. Respiratory virus I am sure. My sister who had this a few weeks ago was told it was a cold, not a flu, so the flu shot doesn't cover it. Bummer.
I hate that I was stuck traveling, spewing virus everywhere I went. I would have been sick at home or at work, so the sick part doesn't matter, but I hate possibly exposing people to this. I ran high fevers Friday night after getting home, and all day Saturday, so sick I didn't want to move. Today I am still very sick, but the fever is down some and I can breathe a little better. I sincerely hope I have not given this to anyone else. I tried to be SO careful, kept cleaning my hands with sanitizer, covering my mouth but I must have been a large bag of escaping viruses on Friday coming back on the plane. Just hoping the lower respiratory part doesn't get worse that is where it seems to be stuck now. Plenty dehydrated, trying to stock up on fluids having a hard time getting them down.
At least I am at the spot in the cartoon where (after being run over by the steamroller) you come out pressed flat and pop back to three dimensions!!! Woo Hoo!
