Friday we had tickets for Anthony Bourdain. The man gives god value for his audience. 90 minutes of stream-of-consciousness patter, over an hour taking questions from the audience and a lot longer signing things for fans afterward. I knew I liked the guy, but now I'm positive: he's good people.

However, Saturday I woke up feeling a bit under the weather. Low-grade temp, cough with lovely yellow chunks. Meh. So I huddled on the couch in sweats and my bathrobe. By noon the 'low-grade' temp was up to 101, and I was asleep with the heating pad cranked up and the down comforter on. By sunday morning I was living on NyQuil and tea, and wasn't even hungry ...I got up for a wonderful breakfast my lovely wife made for me, had 3 bites and went back to bed for 2 hours, completely worn out. This morning the fever was down to 100.3, so i got in to see my doc - it's a "species of flu" thanks doc, that's a polite way of telling me I'm one with the pig - the only 'species' of flu currently active is H1N1, so that kinda rules out anythign else! However, I'm over the 48 hour mark, so I can't benefit from tamiflu, so I'm just keeping up with mucinex and fluids. And let me tell you, my boss is so happy to hear that after calling in all weekend I may call in this week too.

So what a wonderful way to spend my birthday!

I wish you a very speedy recovery, like by Thursday so you can at least enjoy some good eats.

Rest well and heal quickly sweets, and stop kissing pigs. You have a perfectly lovely wife for that. ;)

Actually, there are other flues loose in the wild.

I, and several other people I know, have had the flu, but not H1N1.

Then the lung infection.

Then a case of swimmer's ear. I'm still on both oral antibiotics and antibiotic ear drops for that.

Uh...ordinarily I wouldn't ask this, but it is you after all...

Just when did we started fraternizing with the porcine crowd? *snort*

I hope you feel better soon. At least you did get to meet Bourdain. I know how much you like him. When you are up to eating a bit more, I'll send a chocolatey care package.

Hugs with a face mask on!
