Sick Jack


This is a picture of me being sick. I felt well enough to go to the gym yesterday, but not well enough to do more than 4 laps in the pool. Besides, that water was excessively cold.

I think I have the flu because I’ve been experiencing body aches and a fever, but other than that, it seems like a really bad cold. Maybe I have both.

Today I had Extreme Drippiness Syndrome (EDS) and a fever of 100.4 degrees F. I suspect it actually was higher than that, but I didn’t think to take my temperature until I was already starting to feel a little less cold.

Fortunately, the fever has been going down now, as has my EDS. I don’t feel well enough to do much, really, but I do feel well enough to get caught up on my blogging. I hope to feel well enough for attending church tomorrow.

Hope you have a can of chicken soup in your cupboard! Did Tamara share this flu/cold with you? Hope you're feeling better soon! Are you done with finals (who wants to study when they're sick!)?

You can tell you're sick and without a friend because you're not smiling. Hope you feel better soon.

I think I did get this one from Tamara. I just have one more final, but it's not till Wednesday, and I feel pretty comfortable with the material, so that should be fine.

Sounds like you probably had the H1N1 flu -- body aches with a fever, plus other cold-like symptoms and the
EDS. If it is, I'm so sorry for you. It's a bugger to fully get over (speaking from experience).

I looked up the H1N1 symptoms, and it does look like that's what I had (or still have.) I was so blessed that the worst part of it happened on a Saturday when I was just home by myself and I could nap half the day, instead of being right before a final or deadline or on a work day.

Now THAT is an example of a positive attitude. I'm sure that nap was helpful. Hope you make a speedy recovery.
