And sometimes the fever's a good thing

I don't want to make this post a huge thing, since my schedule includes a) taking a nap and b) working on tomorrow's Time Machine.  So in brief:

I was sick all weekend, and my work week looked like this:

Monday- feeling wretched, can't breathe, can't talk, took day off.
Tuesday- Can't breathe, can't talk, but feel better, work the day.  Suggested to my boss I should have come in with a horn.

Wednesday- wake up in middle of the night freezing with fever.  Feel wretched, can't talk, can't breathe.  Craving for banana with tomato juice.  Took day off.  Computers were out between 10 AM and noon, power goes out at work around 2 PM.  Glad I missed the mess.

Thursday- No fever, talk a little, could breathe until last 15 minutes.  Worked the day.  Boss lets me work 8 hrs instead of 9 this week due to being sick, six hours on Saturday ahead.

I did have a little balance episode when my right ear popped and the world suddenly took on about a 35 degree slope for about 4 seconds.  But I am alive, just so's you who don't know me on FB know.


  1. Man, I'm sorry to hear you had a see-saw week, Chris (chili today, hot tamale). Sounds like you need to chug-a-lug a mason jar full of Granny's special elixir. Take care, good buddy, and I'll see you at the Time Machine tomorrow.

  2. Hope you're feeling better. Sounds like what I have. I'm past the fever and the no voice and aches, but the sneezing, coughing, and congestion show no signs of going away. Will be 2 weeks as of tomorrow. Yippee.

    1. Mine started exactly at 9:30 AM last Wednesday. Looking forward to the next week of this crap!

  3. Hope you feel better very soon Chris!! Being sick sucks.

  4. That really stinks. I hope you're 100% soon. It takes us a little longer to recover now doesn't it?

  5. Chris:
    Sorry to hear you were under the weather, but glad to see you're bouncing back (and it takes longer as we become more "seasoned" - what's all this OLD crap anyway?)

    Weird when your inner ear tilts the world for 'ya, isn't it?
    Been there many times before.
    Like a "bed-spin" without the booze...and the

    You take it easy and rest up.
    We want you (both) to be fit as a fiddle when you stop by the "Fortress" after Christmas...
    We like to plan a bit ahead...heh.

    Take care and get well up there, brother.
