It has been over two weeks, now. What started as a head cold morphed into a flu and the sickest I have been in my adult life. Yesterday I got my very first chest X-rays and my very first IV; I really disliked both. Now, I'm stuck home recovering, and all of my work is going undone. I'm incredibly lucky to have a brilliant and dedicated group of co-workers, but I hate knowing that they're pulling my weight while I'm out. Also, I'm falling behind in school, and that's harder to make up. I may have to take an incomplete in one of my classes, which will put me almost a semester behind where I want to be.
