Last week I succumbed to the office crud that was going around. I woke up on Thursday feeling icky with a sore throat and ended up going home early feeling feverish. I stayed home from work on Friday and spent pretty much the whole weekend on the couch. I didn't get it too badly. My only symptoms were really the sore throat and feeling deeply tired. To the point where we came home from church and the grocery store on Sunday and I laid down and slept for two hours. I've been sleeping like 10 hours a night and then napping during the day. I was worried about how I was going to make it through work, but I've been ok, even though I'm still dragging. I think the worst of it is over. It was kind of a weird illness - I guess my body was fighting it off or something, instead of actually getting full blown sick. I just don't get sick, it's very unusual for me! Besides that whole cancer thing, I haven't been sick since college. Well, ok, I got the flu one time when I went on a work retreat and was locked away with the sick person, and about 70% of us came down with the flu. It was so bad they ended our conference early and sent us all home. But other than that, I don't get colds or anything. Even when everyone else around me is getting sick, I usually power through. I have a strong immune system. Anyway, that was my weekend... sleeping and football. How was yours?

Ugh! I had the same thing about a week ago--sore throat and general fatigue. Hope you're back to 100% soon!
