I felt better by late afternoon, then my intestines start acting up. The intestinal component makes me think it's not good-old influenza but some sort of stomach bug. Rotavirus was going around daycare but the kid didn't get it. It could be something I ate, or gastroenteritis from something else I managed to touch or eat.
At any rate, I don't recommend it. Luckily, I've, shall I say, had enough warning before needing a bathroom, and the drugs do help, although I needed both to get the fever down. I didn't take them this morning to see how long I would last, and the answer was about noon.
I'm on the sofa, napping when I can. I'm now watching the Marillion DVDs I haven't had a chance to watch. Hopefully that will make me feel better. That, fluids and sleep. Oh, I also had some toast and juice.
I don't feel like doing anything or going anywhere. I guess this is why sick days are different than vacation days.
