4 Days and Still Yucky

On Monday, during the work day, I began to feel achy and sneezy. By the time I got home, I had lost my voice and was incredibly tired. I went to bed.

I awoke the next morning, the right side of my face pounding and unable to sit up because it made me so dizzy. Went to the doctor and was told that I had the flu, that it was a virus and to take some aspirins, drink plenty of fluids and "gut it out".

By Thursday, feeling much worse than Tuesday, I went back to the doctor and was told that I now had a .sinus infection, pharyngitis and bronchitis. Now I'm only 3 medications, received a shot... and today Gary picked up the 4th med. Oh... and I'm still feeling as lousy as I did Tuesday. However, my voice has returned... although it's several octaves deeper.

Hubby did leave a nice surprise for me. I've gone through 2 boxes of kleenix and when I woke up from a nap, the third box was waiting for me along with the movie "The Holiday" that I wanted. I really enjoyed this movie and wanted my own copy of it. My sisters say he spoils me. Hmmm.. I really don't think so.



Now on the bad side, working for the Bank I get 6 paid sick days a year... hell I've used 4 this week.... Yikes... how many days are left in 2007?

Well, hell even the hospital allows us to have 6 sick days a year, but if you're out for more than one consecutive day it's only counted as 1 sick day.

One of the women I work with was out for 4 1/2 days with the "flu". She said she thought she was going to die.

Hope you get to feeling better.
yeah take care of yourself....it is horrible to go through!

YES...GARY takes good care of you!

love you {{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}

I hope you get over it. Didn't you get a flu shot? I hope Gary and Alex don't get it.
