Why Bert, You're Sick!

Uh yeah, duh, Ernie! And boy did I catch a good one. Last Thursday I started feeling bad...you know, feverish and prickly all over. Friday I felt good, though and ran 6 miles after work. Friday night I started to get all stuffy and Saturday when I woke up I felt terrible. I didn't run Saturday morning (more because it was pouring outside than actually feeling bad), but I did get dressed and have brunch with my family. This was the last time I was out of my pajamas until today. I stayed in bed the rest of Saturday, all day Sunday, and all day yesterday except for the hour I spent at the doctor's office. I've barely eaten anything since Saturday. I'm feeling pretty weak. Today I'm feeling pretty good, though. I can breathe through my nose; I can cough without losing a lung; and I don't feel completely nauxious today either. I was actually able to eat some applesauce without gagging. I don't think I'm going to run today either, but I'll probably get back in the swing of things tomorrow.

Don't feel bad, it is going around! Your Uncle Chris had it a week ago. He passed out, gashed his head open, got a free ride to the ER (thanks Mifflin) and left with 5 staples. I heard two other people passed out with this flu. Don't over do it! Make sure you take time to recover!

I agree with Jeff and Beth--rest, rest, rest, fluids, fluids, fluids!!! Hope you're feeling better soon!
