Felled by the Flu and Tonsils

I didn't get my flu shot this year...

Friday 12/8

Feel pain on the left side of my throat.
Take ibuprofen a couple of times a day.

Saturday 12/9

Sorethroat spreads over to the right side of the throat.
Still on Ibuprofen.
On and off low grade fever.
Go to Shana's birthday party and am told I look sallow. I joke about being sallow coz I'm Chinese.

Sunday 12/10

Wake up feeling out of sorts. Body aching.
Go for Church, then to Cindy's for lunch.
Come home, go to bed for a bit.
Wake up with a throat that's killing me.
Use a flashlight and inspect my throat -
Tonsils inflamed with some yucky pus.
Call my mom and she says to use Listerine swabs on my tonsils.
Manage to get dinner together and pick at my food.
Still having low grade fever.
Went to bed at 9pm.

Monday 12/11

Wake up feeling pretty bad with rapidly rising temperature.
Throat feels like I swallowed razor blades.
I've become an Ibuprofen junkie.
By noon I'm like, totally useless .. UGH.
Go back to bed and am bedridden for the rest of the afternoon and night.
David, my baby darling, goes get me wonton soup and meds as I am a limp noodle with a spiking fever of 101F, sorethroat from hell, chills, bad muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite.
David gets Mexican TV dinner for himself.
Sounds VERY much like the FLU besides yucky tonsillitis!
Wake up periodically from all these body aches and needing acetominophen for the fever and sorethroat.

Tuesday 12/12

Feeling a little better, headache less severe,
muscle aches minimal, sore throat still pretty much a plague.

I have NEVER gotten the Flu in my life. Must be that Canadian resistance to nasty germs.

I hope you are feeling 100% now and are having a great week.

I got lucky so far (knocking wood) and only had a cold last month.

ugh...I was a little under the weather as well. Sore throat, mild fever, body aches and coughing! I couldn't just stay in bed as I had to study for finals...ugh!! I'm a little better...only the dry cough won't seem to go away and my whole body hurts when I cough continuously :(

hope you feel better!

Sorry to hear that you are sick...take it easy. Your post is cute with all the illustrations in it though! I get all achy with the flu...the throat pain sounds bad, mom's advice sounds good! Take care and rest. :)
