101 to start 2007

To the person who evidently decided it was ok to go out and party on New Year's Eve while contageous...my immune system thanks you.

I have had a temperature since yesterday afternoon. It peaked last night at 101.4 and is currently hovering around 100. This all accompanied by the chills, aches, etc. I went to the doc today. I have strep and the flu. Just in time for the new year!

I can think of 30-30 ways to fight that bug...

Seriously, kid, all the usual advice here, fluids, rest, more of the same. I've been sick as well, so when you find that asshat, send me the addy, and I'll have SayUncle go and shoot them...

Hey, you got lucky. I spent the first 3 months of 2000 nursing a painful, itching and burning...well...nevermind.

B-Dub: I did not! Just ask Sista!

Hope the Penicillin helped your, ahem, condition. lol

You're in good company - we had to take J.J. to the doctor yesterday for a cough. Luckily, his is just a cold.

Dang - I'm so sorry to hear this!

This is a great argument for starting a LiveBlogging New Year's Eve party next year. We could be "together" without being "together". Maybe some kind of chat with drink smileys.

Get better quickly , Ginger!

ugh...I still have a fever this morning. I'm not used to this and it's driving me insane. Nap time.

Mr. Mack: From the looks of the comments on NIT, you need to get Nate in on the drive by...

I hope you felt better after your nap! Did you wake up in time to see how Pretty Grand Rapids, Michigan is today for Gerald Ford? (The prettiest of Blue skies and SO Sunny)!

(Get well quick)!

Still feeling rough. I did get to see a little of the funeral, which was beautiful.
