Ramblings of an Ill Person

I am sick.

I don't feel good. I have the chills, aches and a fever. I am not going to work. I think I know where I got this bug from since I had six students out with it last week in my classroom. I don't know what it is....H1N1 or the common flu, but I am ill.

Here's what I do know.....If you call the doctor's office they are not sympathetic to my cause. After I made five phone calls to my Asthma doctor's office, they told me that it could be H1N1 and I need to call my Family Physician. This seemed like a good place to call since my lungs ache and I am coughing up junk. I guess not.

I then took some Tylenol today for my 102 degree temp. and I dropped one on the floor. Not being too quick on my feet, my dog, Ranger, ate it. I called the veterinary clinic and they were very helpful. They seemed sympathetic to that cause. Maybe, just maybe I should call back and tell them about my symptoms and the fact that I am going to Disney World in a few short days. I need to be well. Do you suppose I'd be their first human patient? Just wondering.

Madison now has my fever and Grant just threw up. Poor kiddo...it's his 3rd birthday today. Ugh! I've never seen bugs like this all at once.

Okay, I am SO sorry that you and the kids are sick at the same time. Normally that would be the worst scenario. Since you all need to be well in time for your trip though, I guess it's for the best.

Hang in there!

Ohhh Amy I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling well. You really need to get to the doc as H1N1 is the most damaging to woman in and around our age group. Just make sure because it would suck to get to Disney and throw-up on Mickey!
Have a safe trip, feel better soon

I FINALLY got the doctor's office to call me back and they said to me that half of their staff is gone and sick with the same bug. They also can only recommend these three things....

1. Drink lots of fluids
2. Take Mucinex
3. Get plenty of rest

That's it! There you have it!
