Thanks for all the encouragement, both in blog comments and in emails. I’m not feeling any worse, but not notably better either. I looked online, and flu facts from the Mayo Clinic suggest that the worst symptoms should be lessening after 2-3 days. I have groceries in — although I don’t have much appetite — and the kids are on call if I need anything.
This is one of the times when living alone is hard. Last night I craved a cup of tea, and literally didn’t feel as if I could get up to make it. I had a can of sparkling water next to me so I wasn’t without liquids, but I was without the tea.
I’ve basically been going from bed to the couch, with NCAA women’s basketball on, and dozing in and out. I must have fallen into a deep sleep, and woke up to see the last 60 seconds of Stanford v. Notre Dame — the game I most wanted to see on Sunday. Stanford pulled out a win, but other than a very exciting final defensive play, I have no idea how they did it.
