Sick Days

For the last couple of days, I have been bogged down with some nasty viral bug that has been going around.  I have had body aches, chills, fever, a hacking cough, and my throat has been completely raw and swollen.  I went to the doctor’s today.  The good news is it is not strep throat or the flu, like I feared.  The bad news is that we have no idea what it is, other than just some viral bug that should run its course in a few days.  Hmmmm.  Thanks for nothing.  That does me no good at all.  Don’t these doctors understand I’ve got things to do, people to see, and places to go?  I am way too busy to be sick.  So I called in sick at work both yesterday and today, and have pretty much done nothing but rest and take it easy.   That’s what the doctor told me to do today too.

I had the best medical care to be found.  Lucie and Vinnie are making sure mommy gets her rest.


Nicky and Otis are also watching over me to make sure I am alright.


Yesterday’s remedies, along with all the over-the-counter stuff.


Following doctor’s orders, along with more rest and staying hydrated.  I really wish there was more we could do, but I guess all I can do is wait until this nasty bug runs its course and hopefully that will be the end of it.

    1. Thank you. The doctor said that too. In my job though, losing my voice is part of the territory, so I did not think anything of it until I could barely swallow and was hacking terribly. Aside from “A Jeanne in the Kitchen”, I am also a swim coach and an aqua aerobics teacher.
