dead wombat

Crawling out of the burrow

Spent a fairly restless night with lots of tossing and turning, but at least I wasn't feverish. Still feeling tired and achy, but there's nothing to be done but pound the coffee and the Tylenol and be about the business of the day...first I have to go downtown and retrieve my phone from my cube where I stupidly left it Friday, then head over to the Thunderbird for the staff meeting. Somewhere in there I'll grab a McBreakfast. Right now I need to get motorvating, shower, pack up the laptop, and get dressed.

Maybe it wasn't a virus after all.

I don't know why it took me so long to realize that what's causing the problem is my left leg again - at least that's the one that's swollen and well above normal body temperature. Managed to get downtown, get the phone, and get back to the Thunderbird well in advance of the staff meeting, so I just chilled out on one of the couches and kept my leg elevated until it was time to get things going. I didn't say anything about it, but I think it was obvious to most people that I was feeling like crap...though I also think we've gotten to the point where people sound off with their updates and don't meander on for 15 minutes.

After the meeting pkat and phoenixalpha headed over to the IHOP with some other folks, but I wasn't really feeling up to it...eventually redmartel shooed the remaining people out of the room and I went home, ate a pizza, and collapsed into bed to watch Road to Perdition.

I guess the plan for tomorrow is to call in sick and go see the doctor, get another course of antibiotics going. Here's hoping I don't need to spend another ten days on bedrest.


Being sick makes you stupid. That's the lesson for today.
