Emerging from the Sickness

Hey, I’m back. Thanks for all your kind thoughts and well wishes. Although I’m still feeling groggy and fatigued, I feel 100 times healthier than I did two and three days ago.

Last Thursday, I came down with a sudden bout with the flu. It was probably allergy-related. Whatever the cause, I felt totally debilitated. By the weekend, I had regressed to the point where I had zero appetite. I was sweaty, nauseous, running a 104 degree fever, and couldn’t move. I was bedridden, although ironically I couldn’t sleep very well, either. By Sunday, I was feeling moderately better, although I still had the worst headache on earth and a constant cough. And I still couldn’t eat anything heavier than a bowl of Rice Krispies. Monday was a huge improvement. I was still headachy and fatigued, but at least I could comfortably nap. One odd thing I noticed was that my senses of sight and hearing were so heightened, it limited what I could comfortably do. Watching TV could be an ordeal (couldn’t concentrate) and it hurt my eyes to read stuff on a computer monitor.

Now I’m feeling a lot better. I hate getting sick, but it makes me appreciate being healthy even more.

P.S. Thanks to Christopher for being such a good and patient nurse. I loved the warm chicken soup (I hope you noticed that I only vomited part of it up).

  1. Happy to hear you’re better, Matt. I was worried that Chris was also going to have to write your obituary.

    See? Chicken soup does it every time. (Were there noodles?)


    PS – Glad to hear you’re feeling better!
