On the mends....

I've missed two days of work this week and looks like tomorrow will make three. Sunday night, while hosting LIFE group at our house, I excused myself in the middle of the lesson so I could go lie down. Little did I know that my body was getting hotter and would soon develop THE FLU. Like the phrase, " bed all day", I literally was in bed all day Monday. I thought that I would feel better in the morning but the worse was yet to come. Waking at 7:30 AM, I really felt like I was about to die. I could barely stand, definitely couldn't walk straight, was burning up with a fever of 103.9, felt delirious, and cried out to Mitch, "Please take me to the ER or call 911!". Mitch rushed and got the kids ready and out the door to school. When he returned, he asked if I wanted an ambulance or if I could stand the ride in our car. Before I could answer, the sweat began to pour and saturate the bed sheets. My fever was breaking. Sweating never felt so good.

Maybe I'll get a flu shot next year.

That's so awful! I hate being sick. It's so much nicer to spend a day in bed reading and watching movies. Glad you feel better!
