…when you are excited (for some value thereof) that your temperature has been less than 101 all day (for the first time in five days) and that you actually got a shower.
It was a bad cold which morphed into bronchitis and a ear infection [edited to add: and pneumonia! whee!]. I have spent days lying in bed with no energy, watching a lot of BBC America (and discovering the wonder that is Orphan Black) and catching up with back DVRed episodes of Jeopardy! and Dr. Who. I didn’t even check my email for three days.
Yes, I have seen a doctor (two days ago) and am on antibiotics, which seem to be working, but slowly.
My, this has been tiring. Time to nap.
