This is the flu that never ends. Yes it goes on and on my friends…

I thought I was better. And then I had to lecture yesterday afternoon. I coughed the entire time. One of my students was kind enough to share her cough drops with me. They helped a little. I hope I didn’t spread my germs around too much. This feels like the never-ending flu. It’s just been up and down and back again. I took NyQuil last night to suppress the coughing so I could sleep. It did the trick. But it also kept me in bed until 9:00! So now I feel even more behind than I did yesterday. And poor Jon is just getting sicker every day. I started off terrible and have been slowly getting better. He started off feeling just a little crappy and is slowly working his way up to terrible. Nutso flu.

A Vacation I Didn’t Ask For

leave a comment »

Tuesday evening I noticed a tightness in my chest, and I found myself coughing a bit. I told Jon that I thought I was coming down with something. By the middle of the night I was shivering with fever, and by the morning I was vomiting. I have been absolutely miserable for the last three days. I can’t even remember the last time I was this ill. And I don’t know if I’ve ever gotten so sick so fast. It just came out of nowhere. I am finally done with the fever, and now I’m just dealing with some lingering body aches and plenty of sniffles and sneezes. Jon’s been a good nurse – feeding me chicken noodle soup and Gatorade and Sudafed. I’m crossing my fingers I haven’t passed anything onto him. Now that I’m starting to feel better, I suppose it’s time to start catching up. I feel so behind after taking these days off to rest. I don’t even know where to start really. Stupid flu.
