I have been sick as can be for the past couple of days. I don’t do sick. It has been more years than I can remember since I spent a day, let alone two, lying in bed with a fever and chills, aches and pains, and a cough that has ripped through my throat. My nose has run so much that I have been through an entire box of Kleenex on my own and the headache has been constant.
My youngest had this last week and I kept trying to force water down her throat, telling her she had to wash it away. All I can say is I’m sorry. I have drunk about a million bottles of water and all it does is force you to get up to go to the bathroom far more often than you want to. I am now hoping the silver lining to this is that I am beginning to recover and hopefully it’ll be another twenty years or so before I get laid out like this again. In the meanwhile I hope you avoid this miserable strain of whatever this has been.
