Have you heard about this flu that is going around? It sounds horrible--lasting a week or more. The flu shot is only about 30% effective against it. I'm terrified of getting it.
So when I heard my sister in San Diego had it, I was a little leery of calling her. I was afraid she'd transmit her germs through the phone. Silly me. That's not possible. So I called her to check in.
That was Tuesday night. Wednesday night I was exhausted. Suddenly freezing. Oh, the chills. The layers couldn't keep me warm. Then the heat, the sweating, then more chills.
Yup. A fever.
I woke up this morning feeling better. Except for horribly painful lymph nodes under my left arm. Seriously they are like hard lumps and are so sore. Obviously I've looked this up on WebMD and you it looks like I have anything from a virus to AIDS to a tumor. Given the fever last night and my generally good health, I'm going with option #1 and will expect to be feeling better by tomorrow.
But, Sarah, just know that I'm blaming all of this on you!!!
