da oink oink flu

There will be no postings for the next few days. I woke up yesterday, feeling crummy, achy, feverish. I crawled into work but managed to stay for only a few hours, before heading home.

My temperature went up to 103 last night. I went to the doctor today, and he took a nose swab. Yup. I have the porky flu. Several weeks ago, I had the flu shot for the regular flu, and was on the list to get the swine flu shot later this month. Don't need it now.

Now back to bed.

Bummer! I had the swine flu a few months ago. It was actually quite mild, compared to the usual flu, but it was still enough to make me miserable. A warning: the extreme fatigue can linger for a couple of weeks or more.

Hope you feel better soon.

Dear Marlene,

I hope you get well soon.

Feeling sick and out of action is awful, in more ways than one.

Take care and look after yourself.

With kindest regards,
