Influenza B and me

It all started with a tickle in the back of my throat Monday night...
I missed all my classes (and a midterm Tuesday).  Had to leave work early Wednesday, didn't go to class or work Thursday...

Friday was Guide Dog Evals.  I said I would work, but needed to leave by 5:40 so I could make it down in time.  One thing led to another, and no one came to cover me, and did not even call to let me know!!!  So I had to stay and close the store, get all the foster pups out the door and all that.  Then I went through SLC and hit rush hour traffic and an accident.  By the time I got to evals (late, oh I wanted to cry) I at least was able to talk to my CFR about Sterling's odd behavior and weird health stuff, but she doesn't think the two are related.  That takes alot of worry off my chest.

Of course, I had not really worked him this week, since getting out of bed cause me to fall down from vertigo issues, and he seemed to forget all his training at first.  But after a bit he calmed down and was just fine.

Tom was out of town this weekend on a hut trip, so I have all 4 dogs with me.  I feel bad for them because I think they are bored as anything, but I just can't be outside.  Right now Hugo is curled up next to my stomach, Marley is at my feet, and Sterling is on his bed, sleeping by my side.  They are such sweet dogs.  Everytime I get into a coughing fit, Hugo picks up one of his toys and brings it over to me!  What a sweetie!

Hopefully this goes away soon, right now I am only talking in a whisper and sucking on cough drops like they are candy.

Oooo I had that sickness!! It was horrible and the sore throat is the worst!! I was sick for a full week and then I had a small cough for about two weeks after that.

Good thing you have Hugo bringing you toys so you feel better!
