Never thought it would hit me...

I thought since I don't have any health problem and that I eat well and go to the gym, I wouldn't get the flu... We even talked about it at work on Friday and I mentioned that I wasn't likely to catch it... boy was I wrong!!

Worked a bit later Friday night and started coughing a bit... Woke up Saturday morning, felt weak, and chilly and had trouble doing my groceries. Ben brought me back home, went straight to bed and felt chilly and hot, cold, warm, freezing, hot, etc. Still didn't have any fever but couldn't hold anything down. With the H1N1 flu going around, it's impossible to see a doctor or go to a hospital, unless you are really really really sick - meaning very high fever, blue lips, convulsions, etc. Still called info-health line to be on the safe side... The fever hit me yesterday night... I haven't felt this sick in so long!!

Ben was a sweety (like always) and he went to the drugstore to get me some medication and some vitamins. Today is a bit better. Have been able to eat at least. The fever is still there but nothing to be alarmed about.


I am a bad patient - I hate being sick... Thank you Ben for being so patient with me!! Je t'aime! xoxo

Oh, I do hope you feel better soon. As Beth mentioned - drink lots of fluids and rest - how cute that you still pulled out the camera-- good sign I guess! :)

Bravo Celine.
Still managed to recognize a photo op even when you down.
Stay at home and rest.
Will miss our lunch hour shopping, but I'm sure we'll make up for it when you're feeling better. Will think of you when I'm at the $1 store.

What a trooper! Still posting from your sick bed! thanks for the reminder that it's too early for me to be thinking "I dodged a bullet" cause I don't think we're through this one yet. Hope you are feeling much,much better today, and take care of yourself! Very interesting shot of the canadian labelling on medication. "Grippe" on the label was just fun for me to look at.
