Swine Round Two
It's my turn. After staying home with Lydia on Monday and Tuesday, I went back to school on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday morning I woke up feeling exhausted and feverish, so I stayed home. Thank goodness I did, because despite spending all day on the sofa, I felt more and more sick as the hours passed. I went in to the doctor to make sure there wasn't something I should be doing or something I was missing, and she instructed me to go home, rest, and drink plenty of fluids. I told her that Lydia had tested positive for a Type A Strain of the flu, and she echoed what the pediatrician said: that it was most likely H1N1 and guessed that is what I have, also. She said that regardless, treatment was the same. Today I feel much better, but I am still not up to speed. I'm confident I will be better by Monday and will be back in school. Ugh. Stupid swine.
