Slowly Returning to the Land of the Living

Howdy strangers! Just a quick post to let you know that I may have fallen off the edge of the Earth, but I am alive...barely!  After a couple weeks of trying to get a brief done for work, including one week of being up 'til the wee hours of the morning every day, I succumbed to a wicked viral infection.  Last Thursday nite as I was up working on my brief, I started feeling a fever coming on, and by 5 a.m. I had a 101.5 temp.  That has persisted now for SEVEN days!!  I went to the doctor on Monday who, after ruling out the flu and strep, diagnosed me with some vague "upper respiratory infection," which is viral and has to run its course.  He said that normally takes 5-7 days.  Well, it's day 7, and I've yet to feel much better.  My fever is down to about 100, but even that spiked again this afternoon, and my headache and cough are gettin' real old! After 7 days of fevers ranging from 100-102.5, headaches, and coughing up all kinds of gunk, I've had it!!  I'm about ready to search out an exorcist to get this evil out of my body!

So needless to say I haven't felt like doing anything but sleeping and sitting like a zombie on the couch....Hopefully in the next couple days I'll be back to normal and actually able to function enough to write some new blogs....So stay tuned....

Hope you're all continuing to work out and enjoy your spring!!  Happy Passover and Easter!

I was wondering about you. Hope you get rid of "the funk" (as I call it when I have no real diagnosis) soon!
