Wow -- I had some sort of allergic reaction last night! Around midnight, I woke up with a stiff thumb, and noticed it was swollen, so I took an Advil and dunked the thumb in ice water for a little while and went back to bed.

As I'm lying in bed, I notice my cheek feels stiff. So I get up and look in the mirror.

OMG! What is going on??! I took Benadryl, and the swelling (both thumb and face) is better this morning!

Last evening, I was staking up tomato, hibiscus and phlox plants. That is the only thing that was outside of my normal routine. The plants brushed my face while I was staking them. My suspicion is the tomato plant -- they sometimes cause rashes in some people.

Long Week!

I posted about being sick and how I was feeling better...well, that was premature! It was a 1 - 2 punch...first punch: fever and diarrhea. Get a little better, then 2nd punch: chest and head cold.

I have been sick or teleworking for 4 fricken days! I finally went back to the office today.


Everyone at work commented on how deep my voice is, lol! I actually miss the full range of my gay voice, lol ;)

I've been sicker yesterday and today than I have been in a long time! I guess some sort of virus -- woke up middle of the night Friday morning with fever and diarrhea.

I actually got a friend to take me to a clinic Friday to get tested for the flu - thankfully negative for both types. But the fever, soreness, general feeling bad, diarrhea -- all felt like flu! And a woman at work's child recently had both types of flu in just a few weeks. If it had been this, I wanted to get Tamiflu as quickly as possible.

Today, I'm better though. Still sore all over, but my appetite has returned. Slept over 12 hours last night, and then lay around all day today...so not feeling sleepy yet tonight (also a good sign that I am recovering).

So..nothing much going on in the Dragonfly household this weekend except lying around!
