It got me!

I learned a valuable lesson this week that I am not immune to everything. Having been a school nurse for five years and escaping the major illness plagued by those new to this line of work, I began to assume I would be immune to everything. WRONG! I survived the first wave of H1N1 unscathed, got all my immunizations in preparation for this one and am coming off four days where I can honestly say I have never felt sicker in my whole life! Fever, cough, aches, headache and the desire to remain horizontal on the sofa or in bed with my eyes closed and in total silence. I was great fun to be around. But I am back....a trip to the doctor, a trip for some acupuncture and a new herbal supplement that will take the place of antibiotics. All seems to be working. I am glad to be back but I think TSAnnie is going to miss the nurse she was working with who brought her breakfast and lunch every day. I hope she does not expect that from me...... :)


  1. Feel better. My 17 yr old niece was hit with the H1 last week and my SIL is wondering when and if it is going to make the rounds in the house now.

  2. Welcome back! Annie missed you very much!
