104.7 :: The Lifesavers

You may (or may not) have noticed my disappearance in the blog world this week. When I arrived at work on Monday I felt awful and made an appointment with my doctor for late in the afternoon. The nurse took my temperature and it was 104.7! Apparently I had the flu? Oops, maybe I shouldn't have gone into work after all.

So needless to say, the past 3 days have been pretty icky, but let's take a look at what pulled me through:


From left: Campbell's chicken noodle soup, Puffs - plus lotion of course, several prescriptions, Motrin, Tylenol and Theraflu.

Not pictured: my comfortable bed, hours of Baby/Wedding Story on TLC, Desperate Housewives reruns, my favorite sweatshirt, and a certain guy who came to my rescue with DVDs, jello, vitamin C and cough suppressant (oh and Oreo Cakesters for when I felt better). I'm pretty sure he's a keeper.



Still not feeling 100%, but I'm back - and I missed you! How the heck have you been?

Ugh, that looks like my counter for the last week. Minus the fever, but add in a serious sore throat. :(

I got sick last week too.. took two days off right before a 3 day weekend and it helped quite a bit.

I'm assuming you're feeling better and I'm glad for that! The flu bites!

Angela said...

I was actually just in the midst of drafting up an email asking if you'd fallen off of the earth when you popped up in my feed reader!

I'm sorry you've been so ickily sick, and I hope you're back to 100% very soon!!

I'm fabulous! Thanks for asking! I'm now on 8 days vacation! And may I just recommend Breathright nose strips? They're wonderful when you got the sniffles :) Makes breathing 100x better! I swear!

Feel better!

There is nothing better than a male nurse. I hope he gave you a sponge bath! Hee-hee, just kidding. That is so nice that your man came to your rescue.

Ashley said...

Oh my goodness! I am glad you are doing better!

At least you got a few days of some good r&r! I am sure the Baby/Wedding Stories on TLC made you better, haha. I get sucked into those all of the time.

Virginia said...

Glad you are feeling better!! Chicken noodle soup is such a lifesaver, you are right. And sounds like a certain someone is also quite the come-to-your-sick-rescue hero as well...

Have a great weekend!

Megan said...

So, not to be a crazy person or anything, but is that Deceptively Delicious in the background? Definitely the best cookbook I'm purchased recently-- what recipes have you tried?

Tina Vaziri said...

Being sick blows, I've had a cough since December. What doesn't blow? Cute boys who are sweet!

Bhanu said...

Hmm I`m a believer in Cold FX!

Larissa said...

Thanks goodness for canned soup and men who care! Feel better, lovely.

Yoda said...

Fever sex is overrated and ends up making you feel dizzy. Hope you guys didn't try it?

Get over the flu soon!

elysa said...

the freakin flu sucks! I was wondering where you were hiding. I watched a whole season of The OC on DVD when I had the flu in January.

The Underpaid Princess said...

104.7??!!?! Dang! I hope you are feeling lots and lots better.

Princess Pointful said...

The whole world is sick, it seems. I hope this week treats you better!!

t.b.f.love. said...

Feel better soon! There has been something awful going around - my husband had the flu all week, with fevers of 102 most of the time. Theraflu is an absolute lifesaver!

Everybody is getting sick! I'm calling this the plague of 2008!

ashley said...
