The Flu

When I think of the flu I think of a winter sickness. I did not think that people could get it in May but I was wrong! I have the Flu, YUCK! I don't remember ever feeling as bad as I have this week. I am definitely maxing out my sick days. I woke up Monday not feeling great but thought I was just tired after a busy weekend. I was in a mtg. all Monday morning and felt worse and worse. When I got back to school I headed straight to the nurse. She took my temp and it was 102.4. I'm not sure my temp has ever been that high. I'm one of those weird people who has a normal body temp of about 97.5. Anyway, nurse Chandler sent me home which was a good thing. That night my temperature hit 103.5 which was a bit scary.
Steve took me to the doctor on Tuesday morning. Dr. Raley said this year's flu had been longer with a different strain than that of the flu shot (which I didn't get anyways). He gave me some meds and said to come home rest and drink plenty of fluids. So, that's what I'm doing. I went to school this afternoon for a bridal shower and may have over done it. I'm lightheaded and dizzy now which doesn't feel very good that's for sure. Here's hoping I feel better soon :)

Cindy, Hope you feel better soon!! I got the flu in May a couple of years ago. I remember it was right when grades were due, what a crazy time to be out sick.

Sorry to hear you're sick...the flu is NO fun!

I was at Babies 'R' Us last weekend near from Hulen Mall...they had a complete crib bedding set with ladybugs. They even had pillows (which I bought), a lamp, wall hangings, border...the whole 9 yards!
