It's good that you have a doctor's appointment. There's no law saying that if you catch something on the flight over that you can't catch something else while there too. The CDC has current info for clinicians on what travel related illnesses to look for.

This is excellent information. Thank you! I'll be mentioning this CDC page to my doctor.

Did you knowingly (or UNknowingly) participate in any voodoo rituals?

Srsly, tho, feel better.

Soon.

I avoided all potential voodooism, as far as I know. ;)

Still feeling pretty punky, and have really been taking it easy. Dragging myself to the doctor's office later this afternoon. Wish me luck!

Glinda how did the Doctor visit go?

Glinda 02-13-2019 10:21 PM

Doc said "Yep, you've got the flu. Go home and sleep it off. Give me $20." :rolleyes:

For what it's worth, he's pretty sure it's not a weird tropical disease or a voodoo curse.

Still wiped out but feeling a bit better each day. Good thing, because I have a new pet sitting job and a new proofreading project starting tomorrow.

No rest for the wicked (or the cootified) ! :rolleyes:

I'm glad it's not some tropical Cooties. Get Better Soon.

Our February Christmas with Pete's old man was trimmed down to a diner visit because the flu took out half the family. Feel better Glinda!

Glinda 02-14-2019 11:04 AM

Thanks for your good wishes, everyone. I can't remember the last time I got the flu . . . I sure don't remember getting slammed so badly. The latest complication (started yesterday) is conjunctivitis. Yay.

Today should be interesting. One of my pet sitting clients is out of town for a month (Costa Rica), and I'm job-sharing their visits with another pet sitter. She got the first week, during which time the client's home was buried in a foot and a half of snow. This wouldn't typically be a problem for my 4WD truck, except this particular client lives on a very steep private road (not plowed) way the ever-lovin' fuck on top of a local mountain.

The other sitter has only been able to get up to the house a few times in the past week (she's got a little SUV, but no 4WD). Says the closest neighbor has been going to check on the cat when she hasn't been able to get through. Yesterday, the other sitter actually walked up the mountain. Jesus, God.

There's no way I can do that, given my current state of health. I just hope my truck can plow through whatever's up there now. Wish me luck. :(

Gravdigr 02-14-2019 12:09 PM

Be careful.

Glinda 02-14-2019 01:30 PM

The good news is that it's raining like it's the end times right now, so hopefully the rain is busting up some of that snow. The possible bad news is that it's 38 degrees here and there's no telling what the temp is up on top of that mountain.

:neutral:

I went to the Container Store today, got everything I wanted, and still stayed under $100.

Then I got a 15% off coupon to come back, which is great because it turns out there is more I want. :)

Flint 02-14-2019 05:28 PM

I was talking to a friend from Idaho who didn't know what a Container Store was, and me and my other friend were like OMG LET US TELL U ABOUT THE THING
