I gots me some. Been out of work all week, missed Thanksgiving...started feeling crummy end of last week, throat a bit cranky and chest a little clouded. Sunday I was utterly exhausted and couldn't get off the couch. Monday stayed home, but did a 5 mile run to "sweat it out" (thought it may have been a cold). Tuesday, spent the day on my way in and out of the City to see the docs, where I was tested. Constant congestion, cough, sneezing, scratchy throat. Wednesday seemed to peak it, also got the call confirming I had it. Been on the Zpac to prevent any further infection for two days by then. yesterday, congestion better, but tired and achy. Today, congestion a little better (I swear I went through four boxes of tissues the first few days) than yesterday, still tired and achy, but less so from yesterday. Doc told me I should stay home until I'm 100% for 24 hours, so i can't imagine being able to work next week. Good news is that its only 8 days of sick time (and I have plenty). Kids were given their flu shot (this strain was included) months ago, so I won't be all over them, but nice to know I don't have to avoid them. Hopefully I will rest and this won't get worse, before it gets better...I can get lots of my Christmas shopping done online! It'll also help me rest my achillies, which never really was 100% since I hurt it this summer. Lastly, you guys'll be sick of me I'll be posting so much!
