Got ahold of some flu yesterday - fever, aches, weakness, the whole bit. Stayed in bed most of the day, submitting to Nicole's conscientious care, was feeling better by nighttime. Woke up and the fever was mostly gone. Unfortunately, I couldn't turn my head to the left without excruciating pain in my neck. Consultation with Nicole's nurse stepmom, books, and the Internet confirmed that doctors can't do anything about it. Only heat, ibuprofen, and time will help. If my neck, shoulders, and back are not perfectly aligned, it hurts. So I'm walking around like C-3PO.
I really hope this blog doesn't turn into a litany of complaints...I'll post about something happy next.
