Okay, so it might not be quite that bad. The boys were out sick most of last week and went back to school on Friday. I began to feel bad Wednesday night and Thursday I was very sick. Allie also came down with it. Because I didn't want to risk losing my weekend position at work, which could happen if I were to miss too many days in a year, I worked my Friday and Saturday 12 hour shifts, sick. Miserable. Since then, I've failed to get over it, so today we went to the doc and got antibiotics and narcotic cough syrup. Now, I'm just going to rest and get better before next weekend.
Symptoms: head congestion, runny nose, sore throat, chest congestion, severe cough, back ache (last Thursday only, thank goodness!), intermittent low-grade fever.
Now, we must run off to get our drugs. Our mystic portal awaits!
