03/21/2008 Entry: "Home Sick"

Yup. I'm home sick. I haven't been sick since October. I'm actually quite surprised it was not that long ago. I'm usually pretty healthy. Well, I don't normally get sick. On Wednesday night, Susan called me on my cell phone while I was at band practice. I didn't hear the phone ring. When I got home, she was really sick. She could barely move! On Thursday, she made a doctors appointment. I came home to watch the boys. Turns out she has bronchitis. I stayed home for the rest of the day yesterday. About bed time, I started to get a little tickle in my throat. At 4am, I woke up achy and freezing. I knew I was in for it. I couldn't get back to sleep, so I went downstairs and watched TV. I called the office, and let them know I wouldn't be in. Around 7:30, I took Julia to school. I was feeing a little better. By 10:30, I was hurting again. I even called Blind Al and canceled on my gig tonight. I think this is the first time I ever canceled on him for illness. I had a fill in lined up when my children were born, and when Dad died, so when I had to cancel those gigs, it was no big whoop. Blind Al took the news well, and even offered to find a replacement for me. He did too. I'm thankful; when I got up from my nap, I was sore and nauseous. Certainly not in any condition to drive to Bar Harbor. I'm supposed to have two shows tomorrow. We'll see how that ends up.

Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!

When I'm sick, I crave dropped egg on toast, too! That, and a McDonald's hamburger, and anything that has tomato in it.
