flu....h1n1 or otherwise

good news....i dont think i'll need to get a flu shot this year.

bad news...i've been flat on my back since tuesday morning.  my day consists of forcing myself to drink something, hobbling to the restroom and sleeping for 6 hours....repeat....

this morning, i took a shower.  woohoo! and then slept for 4 hours.  wow.  but i did manage to get out of bed for something other than a potty break so i'm making progress.

my sister-in-laws say the fever lasts about 5 days and then it takes about a month to start feeling normal again.  so long?  did anyone inform this virus that it's holiday season and folks don't really have a month to feel icky?  i think flu season should be in august, when all you want to do is hide in the air-conditioned house anyway.


  1. That is super sucky! Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Oh, I'm SO sorry to hear this. Please take care of yourself and get well soon!

  3. oh man! hope you are feeling better tomorrow!

    maybe you will be much better by Monday!

  4. Oh NO! Love that you won't have to get a flu shot...they seem to be overrated anyway. Hope you are feeling better. I had some crap and it lasted a little under two weeks before I was back so hopefully you have flu-lite.
