The plague continues to hang around the house. Although I'm no longer on the precipice of death, I'm still sick.
My throat is better, and the laryngitis is (mostly) gone. I can finally sleep now too - it's been a couple of days since I've woken up in the middle of the night choking through a coughing fit that can only be stopped with a hot shower and a room full of steam. The problem is that my ears are infected. Still. My ears have felt like somebody shoved tennis balls inside of them, almost since I caught this cold two weeks ago. And I'm tired, like I could sleep for a week.
So, today I called in sick today and went back to bed. I felt a little guilty doing it, considering how much better I feel than I did last week, but it needed to be done. This little bug needs to move on and visit somebody else.
