Merry illness

Grrr!  On about Christmas eve my chest started to feel really tight and I thought I just might have a bad cold but before the weekend was over I was totally weak in my whole body, all I wanted to do was sleep and I was going from burning up to being freezing cold.  Maybe this is a sign that I should have gotten a flu shot.  Yesterday I went to the doctor and he said I was coming down from having the flu over the weekend.  Apparently the flu numbers where up over the weekend in the Seattle area so I was not not alone.  I guess this is what I get for shopping at the last minute.  At this point my doctor felt that the medication would do me little good.  For the flu medication seems to have great success if you catch it at the beginning but not so good a day or two later.  As I write this I still am going from cold to hot with temps over 100 but aspirin and liquids is the course of action.  Today I am a little more congested, something that I really was not earlier in the week and one thing the doctor said there is a chance I can still get will be bronchitis but that will not be until after the fever completely breaks, most likely by this weekend.  I am sure that will be fun!   I guess my New Years plans might be to be home alone.  Sorry y’all.
