Called off sick today.

  1. I called off sick today for the first time since I broke my ankle three years ago. I have had a cold for a few days, and kept feeling worse. This morning I was so sick I finally left hubby take me to the doctors. Seems I have bronchitis, not just a cold. I have fever of 101.6, and my chest and throat hurt so much, it hurts to talk, to swallow, and even to breathe. Of course, it doesn't keep me from my Allnurses family. I'm sitting here in my robe with a cup of chicken broth, typing away to my friends. I started on ATB, hope I am feeling better soon. I don't have work again till Saturday, so I am going to take it easy for a few days.

    Awwww..... I hope y'all are feeling better soon! Thank you for being kind, considerate nurses and keeping your germs at home!

    Rest, fluids, and a few days of non-stop allnurses should cure what ails you!
