Well, it’s been going around and I got it. There were two dinners I attended back to back, and apparently I couldn’t help myself but be attractive to the bug.

Prior to the weekend, my regularly scheduled chemo treatment went off without a hitch. Sunday morning after the dinner, Robin made me take my temp, which was normal. At 1:00 pm – it was above the cutoff of 100.5 (at which I’m supposed to call the nurse-line for instructions. (Of course, I haven’t called yet where they haven’t advised me to come on it and get checked out… and that’s why I don’t like calling them).

We spent a good 4-5 hours at the emergency room waiting on labs – they finally sent me home with Tamiflu. Results were confirmed a day later – I did have the flu. And it wiped out my white cell counts so I couldn’t get chemo. I must’ve needed a break. ;(

I wasn’t alone – Robin & Josh both got it too.

Just about over it now. Thank goodness.

What's all this?

I’ve consolidated my health updates to friends & family from other sites for convenience.

GoFundMe & MyLifeLine were super-easy to use, but I didn’t want folks to feel compelled to donate while reading the latest news.

If you do feel prompted to help, use this link – they take no cut, so all of your gift goes to pay down expenses.

Better yet, why not hire me to do something great for your organization?
