It started last Saturday when I went to the airport to pick up my brother and sister-in-law. They flew in, I took them to a truck rental place where they rented a truck then it was off to mom’s house to help pack up stuff that they wanted.
I wasn’t feeling great on Saturday and by Sunday it was all I could do to help move furniture and load the truck. I got home and the chills started. 103.2F/39.6C was what the fever thermometer indicated.
No work on Monday. I stayed in bed and felt like “death warmed over”. The only thing I got done was to make noise coughing.
No work on Tuesday. I stayed in bed and felt “just plain dead”. I think I ran out of energy to cough.
Wednesday I worked from home. I stayed in bed, listened to 6 hours of conference calls on my cellphone headset and felt like a zombie….I was dead, but I could slowly stumble out to the kitchen to get something to drink.
Today I worked from home and I may have done some useful work. I’m a slightly faster zombie now. My head still hurts and my muscles still ache, but I have a sense of humor again…”What did the one casket tell the other casket?” “Is that you coffin?”
Yes, I did get the flu shot.
While in bed, Cat stayed by my right side, Dog 1 stayed by my left side and Dog 2 stayed at my feet….all guarding me against everything that was evil.
