I have this horrible feeling I'm getting sick. Actually, it's more than a feeling...it's sure knowledge. As the day has progressed it's become fairly evident that I have something. And it worries me. Because I still have nightmares of our bout with the Swine Flu a few months ago. Somehow I completely lost the time from Halloween to Thanksgiving. I have vague memories of fevers, coughing and crying. I know Bryan was out of town for a portion of it. That's where the crying came from. And I'm sure there was extreme exhaustion...which would account for the blurry quality of the few memories I still possess. Seems like we must have come up out of the sickness induced fog by Thanksgiving because my pictures from the big day show us smiling, happy and relatively healthy looking. But it only lasted a short while because about a week and a half later I got hit again. This time it was mostly just a nasty cough (again) without all the other garbage. But oh, the terrified looks I got when I coughed in public! I kept wanting to explain, "It's okay...this isn't the dreaded Swine Flu. That was last month."
So, unfortunately, I'm feeling crappy this evening. Please let it be a cold, please let it be a cold, PLEASE let it be a cold! A short-lived one too, if I get to make any demands. And NO coughing! Oh please!!!
