SICK, SiCk, sick!!!

I have not been at school for 2 days... I caught the nasty flu and it has knocked me out completely. The only reason I am vertical at this point is because I am filled up on 800 milligram Ibuprofen to help with my 102 fever.

Sunday night, James and I went to see my friend Marie's new place that her and her fiancee' will be moving into. We got there, took a look around and then went out to get something to eat at the Mello Mushroom. I was feeling PERFECTLY fine! I got home and began to work on a baby shower invitation for my sister-in-law. I started coughing and wheezing and finally was able to go to sleep around 12am. When I woke up yesterday morning, I got dressed, packed my lunch and headed off to school. That lasted for maybe about 15 minutes. I felt so dizzy and weak that I had to leave...

At 5:00 I had an appointment at Urgent Care where the Dr. told me I caught the nasty flu. You are fine one minute, and BAM! you can hardly move. He also told me that I should not go to the work for the rest of the week... Yea right, we'll see how that goes...

James started his new job today and last night we couldn't even celebrate... He was too busy taking me to the Dr. and to pick up medicine, gatorade, and chicken noodle soup... What a wonderful man I married...

So now, I can't smell anything, my husband has to use a mask when talking to me, gloves when he brings me something and all I hear is the constant spray of Lysol to kill all the germs... (okay so it really isn't that dramatic) I guess it is better that it happened now because next week is Spring BREAK!
