Tomorrow when I go to the Duke Clinic, I am supposed to wear a paper mask to protect other patients from my germs! Nice.
As it stands, I am still getting chemo tomorrow. Having a bad cold does not necessarily keep you from getting chemo. It all comes down to what the lab says about your bloodwork.
I coughed all night long. This morning, I started coughing up nasty yellow goop, which means I have a respiratory infection. I've got an appointment with my fabulous primary care physician later this morning, and I expect to come home with a bag full of antibiotics.
On the phone and in email, a couple of my dearest friends have very kindly suggested that if I had just called in sick last week when they told me to, then maybe I wouldn't be so sick this week. Well, I'm not 100% sure that saying I told you so is technically within the spirit of the Cheer Me On blog. ;^) It's not called the Bum Me Out blog. Or the Tell Me Off blog.
I know I should have taken it easy last week. But that is so hard to do. With the flowerbed, it was unbelievably satisfying to get those flowers planted. A couple of times yesterday, I snuck outside in my PJs to admire my flowerbeds. And with work, it is super hard to call in sick because I love what I do and I have deadlines. Oooh, if it turns out I am too sick for chemo, then I bet I can work from home for the rest of the week! Excellent! (I never learn.)
