Ugh...sick with flu

My blog's been quiet for awhile now...but this past week, it's been quiet because I've been sick in bed with the flu.

I started feeling sick-ish last Wednesday. Thursday morning, I felt pretty awful (cough/congested head), but I didn't have a fever so I went to work. I got steadily worse all day, and by the time I got home from work, I had a 101.5 fever, could pass NO air through my nose, and was coughing my head off. A really tight painful cough.

I (obviously) stayed home from work on Friday, and stayed pretty much the same all day, and through Saturday. By Saturday night, my fever was going UP (doh!), so Patrick trundled me off to an urgent care center. I was tested...and diagnosed with the flu.

Since then...I've been in bed. Period. As of last night, my temp still goes up to 100 a few times through the day. The decongestant they gave me (Lodrane 24-hour) is amazing...and I'm still coughing quite a bit, despite taking my cough meds every 8 hours.

I AM improving...but my gosh is it slow! I've missed this entire week of work. Plus, when I'm sick, I lie in bed and worry. I start feeling like EVERYTHING is wrong, and it takes a lot of mental work to stay on top of it. Argh.

I'm hoping to wake up feeling TERRIFIC (or heck...even mediocre, lol) one of these days!
