I'm horribly sick today.
I left work early and came home around noon. Went to bed with the cold shakes and slept for the last 6 hours, I feel like I could sleep for 16 more. Shakes and the fever do seem to be gone at this point though. I'm sitting here drinking about a gallon of cranberry juice, then I'm probably going back to bed.
Wife, kid, houseguests, and internet people will just have to fend for themselves tonight.
Updated: Um, thanks for the email, but I'm pretty sure it's just plain old regular flu, not the H1N1 variety. Yes, I know swine flu is all over the Valley. If I'm not better tomorrow, I'll sacrifice a pork chop to the pig god and go see the doctor. Thanks for the concern.//Jim
Updated 2: OK, that's just creepy. Just as I hit publish on the above update, the phone rang and it was the School District PAO calling about Swine Flu in the schools.
If I see a pig walk under a ladder at midnight, I'm going to get very concerned.
I'm feeling better this morning.
I slept something like 16 hours. Sore throat is mostly gone, along with the weird white coating in my mouth. Joint pain mostly gone - and that was really unpleasant, my damaged shoulder and knees were burning there for a while. Fever and the shakes are gone. Headache is gone.
And I'm starving.
So, things are looking up, guess is wasn't the piggy flu after all.
Which is good, since I have a meeting first thing this morning. Speaking of which, gotta go. See you all later, and thanks for the kind thoughts and well wishes.
