03/25/2008 Entry: "Still Sick"
Yup. I'm very ready to be un-sick, though. So it my family. Susan and Matt are in particularly bad shape. All three of them had fevers over 100 today. Mine was 99 something last night. When I was a kid, my mom beat this rule into me: "You are not better until you have been fever free for 24 hours." I want very much to go back to work! But I want to make sure I don't spread this to the staff. I wouldn't want to wish this on anyone. And to burn through almost all my sick time in one shot! Bah! I keep telling myself, though, "It's why you have sick time--use it!" And last year, I didn't use all my sick time. I'm able to work from home, and Gina's keeping track of my voicemail for me, and there are no big projects going on for me this week, so I don't know why I'm so drove up about not being there. I felt quite good yesterday morning. Then, about 5pm yesterday, I started feeling bad again. The thermometer said I was "normal," but I couldn't get warm. I went to bed and laid down, leaving Susan alone to fend with two sick boys to get ready for bed. I felt awful about it, but I couldn't keep my eyes open. I hope I don't have another relapse today.
