I haven't been really sick since November 2006. That all came to an end this week. Sunday I had a sore throat. I didn't think much of it because it could have been anything. Then it got worse on Monday and by Tuesday my sinuses were evacuating. I made an appointment with the doc and sadly cancelled my field work for the week. I was out sick Wednesday, half a day Thursday, and now all day Friday. I now have a delightful cough and sound like Kathleen Turner. My half a day at work yesterday was spend decontaminating my desk, catching up on emails, voicemails, and mail. I did notice a couple other people coughing in the office and heard a lot of "You are sick too!" or "You sound horrible!" By 3 pm, I wasn't sure why I was even in the office since I was feeling so poorly. So by 4 pm I was on my way home to get my prescriptions. It's 11:30 and I've been up for an hour and I'm ready for a nap. But yet I'm planning on spending part of Sunday looking for turtles. I must be delirious!
