Glad This Week is Over

I noticed some familiar cities on the feedjit -- I think my friends and relatives are checking on me. No news is good news, folks.

The Handy Husband has been gone just about as long as I've been sick. He's leaving Singapore Saturday morning at 7 (around 4 pm Friday for us) and is due in L.A. Saturday morning at 11 a.m. Just a few hours earlier and he would time warp himself! (Wait, he kind of is -- he's leaving Tokyo at 5 p.m. Saturday!)

Me, myself, I? Have been sick. 6 days of a fever and its sidekicks, pain and suffering chills and aches, plus a gnarly phlegm-filled cough. The doctor's office never did say what I had, so it must not be the bad flu, although they did make me wear a mask. Probably a reaction to the flu shot, plus a respiratory virus. Today I had a fever-free day, which helped a lot, but I am still coughing like a bad engine (if you can come up with a better simile, I'll thank you!) and have very little appetite. Here's to losing 3 pounds the hard way.

(I hope the boys got enough to eat...they had to do some cooking!)

Goodnight, all. Now where's my codeine-laced cough syrup?

So sorry you've been sick. Hope you're feeling better soon!

I am finally feeling better - 8 days in. Hope you don't take any longer. Do you have joint pain/swelling? Or is that just my wierd symptom?

Let's hope hubby doesn't bring some bugs home with him!

I know you didn't get it from me, but it sure sounds like the same thing. Rest and then rest some more. It's the only thing to do.
