Sick as a dog

I hate being sick. I came down with Influenza B on Monday and the past three days have totally sucked. I don't think I have ever truly had the flu. I have had a fever of 102.5, intense body aches and joint pain, sweats, chills, a sore throat, cough, nasal congestion, and a runny nose. Moral of the story...don't come to my house, you might get infected and die (at least you'll want to die).

In the past 72 hours I have consumed:
2 bowls of soup and a bagel (THANK YOU so much Rachel, you saved me today)
about 20 crackers
64 oz. of tangerine juice
4 Advil
2 Tylenol
2 Tamaflu
countless glasses of cold water

I have also watched the following movies:
Dan in Real Life
Wayne's World
Forrest Gump
Sleeping Beauty
The Princess Bride
Parenthood
Notting Hill
Pride and Prejudice
50 First Dates

and lay in bed wishing someone would just put me in a medically induced coma until I'm all better. If you can't tell I don't handle being sick with much grace. I am a major wuss.

Sounds exciting doesn't it? My doc told me that I should expect to feel this crappy for a week. I'm 3 days into it and I am hoping I can cut this thing short and that I only have 2 days left. We have an announcement to make in a few days and I need to be healthy for what we have coming up. Sorry mom, we aren't pregnant. Poor Josh has been sleeping on the couch because he has been busier than ever at Goldman and can't afford to get sick. They really need him right now. So boo for being sick, I hope you all stay healthy. Again, remember not to pay me any visits in the next couple of days.
