Chris came home sick from work yesterday. He’d worked all day feeling awful and was still feeling terrible by the time he got home that evening. It seems that it’s a flu bug or something – you know fever, sweats, sore muscles and joints plus the ever embarrassing crampy tummy and runs.
He had a really high fever a few times through the night and didn’t end up going to work today. Good idea actually since he works in the OR recovery room. Those people don’t need to be exposed to virus’.
He actually thought he was getting better by this afternoon, but his neck really started to ache a little while ago and I felt his forehead and sure enough his fever had returned. I’m not sure he’ll be going to work tomorrow if this keeps up.
As much as I feel bad for Chris I’m also in “Stay Away” mode. Considering that I have Crohn’s and it’s an autoimmune disease I’ll likely end up getting what he’s got. Usually when I get sick it’s a much worse version than those who’ve had it before me so I’m looking at him with dread.
I do think I might be getting the bug too because I’m headache and achy. I certainly hope I can fight this before it hits!
